This one looks like an appetizing stout, with a dark brown body, and a fluffy white head. Great semi-sweet chocolate aroma, with hints of vanilla. Chewy mouthfeel, and a little bit of sweetness in the flavor is a great tease. Very creamy. MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2004
Draft, Tap NY. Thanks to the brewer for bringing over a full cup to taste. Found this smooth, dark, and creamy. Chocolate and roast dominate. Very easy to drink. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Had this one on draught in Glens Falls, New York. Deep black, nearly opaque color with a thick, brown head, nose of coffee, very complex taste with notes of apricot, bitter chocolate, and amaretto with a very soft finish. An outstanding sweet stout.

On tap at the brewpub with a 5oz sample. Aroma is chocolatey and mildly smoked and milky. A bit of peatiness is also present. Very nice aroma. Moderately-mostly opaque dark brown/black color with a light tan head. Dark chocolatey smooth bitter finish. Nice mouthfeel with a bit of coffee. A very nice stout. williamherbert (1544) - Syracuse, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Roasted malts; leathery taste. Soft caramel notes in flavor and even more in the aroma. Silky feel, velvety. Soft tobacco notes. A hella dry beer with a nice soft finish.

Draught poured as part of sampler at the brewpub. Poured black with a thick off white head. Malty richness in the flavor with caramel notes. Thick, creamy head with a solid bodied beer. Significant contrast to the other brews at this brewery. kevd193213 (991) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 15, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with a medium creamy tan head. Aroma of coffee, vanilla, faint roasted malt and bitter chocolate. Medium body with a nice creamy slightly sweet finish. Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 4, 2003
Pours with a dark brown to black body topped by a medium thick to thick tan head that leaves lots of lace. Slightly sweet yet bitter malt aroma with a touch of hoppiness and smokiness. Smokey roasted malt flavor with a slight coffee character. Full bodied, relatively smooth with a touch of dryness. notalush (5874) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2004
An above average oatmeal stout - opaque, but nearly no head - decent tan lacing, though - roasted oat aroma with a touch of hops - medium bodied with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel - flavor is dominated by dark roast coffee, starts sweet and then gets some espresso bitterness (as others have noted) - hints of dark fruit - long finish - nice. mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2004
Thanks to the brewer for bringing some over to try. Great stout. Chocolate and roasty flavors. Very nice. Dark and creamy. Smooth. good.
