A phenominal flavor with Chocolate and Coffee overtones. Very heavy and dark in color. SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 22, 2005
Pleasant sweet chocolate and coffee nose is soured by uncomfotable, earthy notes. This sourness shows up throughout the beer and doesn’t fit the style. The body is creamy and slightly roasty, but also acidic and overly hoppy. Just doesn’t blend well. Bitter/roasty finish is nice though. Overall, this beer is a mess. barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2005
a solid oatmeal. hazy brown in appearance with a tan head. mild chocolate flavor with some, but not much roated malt flavor. a creamy smoothness on the palate. nicely done. dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2005
beer pours dark amber almost black with a 1/2 in head. smells of chocolate and coffee. has strong flavors of chocolate coffee and finishes dry. This is a good oatmeal stout but I have better. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2005
A pleasant stout. Not spectacular, but enjoyable. Black, brown around the edges, deep tan head. Aroma faintly of chocolate, good coffee note without being acrid. Flavor matched, lightly liqour oriented, more chocolate than coffee. Nice stuff.
Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Brown color. Soft aroma, with hints of prunes, raisins, chocolate and espresso. Dry and roasty (not sweet at all), with a pretty harsh acidic and overly bitter malt bite. JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Black, opaque, with oily tan head. Aroma has notes of creamy coffee, vanilla, roasted malts. Flavor has a fair amount of coffee notes and bitter malts, with a touch of sweetness. A decent brew, but falls short of a truly good stout.

Deep brown / red colour. Tobacco coloured head.
Smoky almost rauchbeer like aroma. Flavour had
hints of licorice and burnt caramel.

12 oz bottle pours deep dark brown with a fluffy tan head that laces. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, and coffee. Flavor is more sweet milk chocolate, some coffee, and a touch of oatmeal. Medium/Light body for a stout a touch on the watery side but very drinkable and another pretty nice offering from this brewer. BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Toasty grain aroma with a bit of chocolate. Had a light brown head on a near black body with hints of ruby. Flavor is full of roastiness and some smoke. Also has a sweet granola flavor. Very smooth. Definitely not a bad stout, but Ive had better oatmeal stouts.
