Out of a 12oz bottle, pours appropriately opaque. Quickly subsiding head leaves thin lacing and aroma of caramel and oatmeal. The mouthfeel is too thin for my preference, but there’s a good amount of carbonation. Caramel malts are dominant in the taste but I also like the little bit of roasty, bitter cocoa powder I found. Aftertaste is of caramel. It’s not a bad or unpleasant beer; it’s drinkable, with enough nuance to keep your attention.

Bottle: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a thin, clingy-lacing light tan head. Has a sweet toasty caramel nose with a touch of milk chocolate and hazelnuts. Starts with good fullness and semi-sweet dark maltiness with some light roasty notes and pleasant bitter balance toward a slightly drier toasty finish. A pretty drinkable and true to style sweet stout.

On draft at the Brewpub. Pours pitch black body with small brown head. Aroma is some chocolate malt. Taste is roast and deliciousness, I wish I was in better shape at the time to try more of this sucker.

basewars (169) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 23, 2009
On tap. Pours dark black with thick head. The chocolate and oatmeal definitely show through. Nice full body. Still not quite as good as Samuel Smith’s, but very good.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2009
draft- this was appearently the beer to go to considering its award winning status, but I found it to be not good at all- very one dimensional in the way of harsh bitterness and dark mollasses- not much else going on- virtually no aroma.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2009
sampled at the brewpub. Almost black in color. Aroma has some chocolate, with some roast peeking in, some crystal/caramel malts. Taste is pretty simple- chocolate, a touch of roast, the silky oatmeal does come through a bit in the body as does the willamette hops- faint floral/citrus. Light to moderate body, with a light bittering finish. Clean and very drinkable.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Pours black with two finger tan head. Aroma is somewhat weak- mostly roasted malt and a bit of a sweet molasses smell. Flavor is roasty and almost smokey with lots of malt. Sweet residual sugars present int he form of caramel and dark chocolate. Not overly flavorful or hard hitting, but the flavors work in this combination. Palate is hideously thin for a stout, and leaves little in the form of an aftertaste. Quite drinkable, however. Would make a good session ale.
