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. jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 22, 2005
Pours inky black with brown medium head that lasts well but doesn’t lace very well. Nose is caramel, coffee, aromatic. Flavor is chocolate, sweet, coffee, oatmeal comes out, as well as some black olive. Medium sweetness. Rather thin mouthfeel, but overall very good and I think underrated.

Black in color, tannish brownish head. Somewhat astringent, especially for a sweet stout. Somewhat dry, lightly burnt chocolate. Meidum bodied. Eh, it was okay.

Black as death with a medium light beige head, really nice looking. Aroma is surprisingly subdued, just some roastyness. The flavor expectedly starts off strong with roasted malt, charcoal and some coffee then gives way to notes of chocolate/mocha. Not sweet, finish is bitter in a burnt/roasty way. The mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy on the palate with subtle carbonation. Great head retention, some lacing left on the glass. Solid stout, but it has the potential to be awesome if more depth is added to the flavor and the aroma. alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Almost black. Dark dan head. Toasty aroma as it warms up. Alcohol noticable in aroma. Smooth, roasted malt taste. Pleasant bitter finish. A good, warm fuzzy beer. DYCSoccer17 (3708) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 5, 2005
Sampled with Tim, Rudy, and maybe Sammy. This rating is barely legible. Aroma is metallic chocolate with a slight sweetness. Opaque dark brown color with a creamy light tan head. Chocolatey, roasty, and slightly astringent. Boring. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2005
Thaks to Tim. Semi astringent nose. Chococoffee is light. Flavor is coffee, overly bitter malt, cocoa finish. Ratman197 (15360) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2005
Nitro tap poured very dark black with a big creamy amber head. Aromas of roasted malt and oats. Mouthfeel was very smooth and creamy. Flavors of roasty malt and dark chocolate.
