Pours black with a thin khaki head. Big roasted coffee notes on the nose. Big malty coffee on the tongue as well. Kind of a thin mouthfeel. Has kind of a dry finish to it which tells me there’s some hops there balancing out all of that malted goodness. TylerPow (122) - Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2011

Draught (13.5°P, 1.054 OG, 30 IBU, 4.8% ABV) at Church Brew Works in Pittsburgh, PA. Rating #39 for this beer.
On tap at Church. Dark brown body, thick creamy head. Watery nose of light chocolate malt, some lactose, and a heavy dose of yeast. Mouth shows a lot more nuance in flavors like chocolate malt, licorice, an odd peat/fertilizer, and a nice balance of heavily roasted malt with some yeast. This creates an odd combo, but its enjoyable despite the still overly fizzy body.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a black body with a finger-width, very creamy, nitro poured brown head that dissipates very slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is milky chocolates with a light, metallic roast. Flavor is the same, but way too metallic. The milky sweet, smooth chocolates are nice, but the metallic taste is very distracting. A light, roasty bitterness in the finish with more metal that leaves this dry. Medium length aftertaste after a medium, smooth body. Overall, if it weren’t so metallic, this would be alright, but the metal taste really throws this off IMO. agl108 (1307) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2010
On draft at Church Brew Works. Poured deep, dark brown with bubbly tan head. Roasty nose. Flavor is of sweet malt with a roasty backbone. Some dark chocolate also noticeable as well. Extremely thin. douglas88 (9789) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Apparently this name covers a rotating version of Stouts, this was a Oatmeal Stout. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head. A sweet milky aroma, lightly roasted malts. The flavor was nice; milky chocolate, roasted malts, smooth and tasty. Nice. WVHouseofBeer (1108) - West Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Had on tap at the Church Brew Works restaurant. Poured a pitch black with a small tan head that left a bit of lacing. Aromas and flavors of oatmeal, roasted malt, vanilla and coffee. Finished smooth and slightly sweet. A pretty good stout. JaBier (8396) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Sample at CBW. Darkest brown pour with a big beige head. Oatmeal and roast aroma with a hint of coffee. Roasted malt flavor with a bit of chocolate and a sorta thin finish.
