Creamy and substantial, this brew is bursting with the flavor of dark roasted grains. Oats add a soft velvety texture that blends well with the distinct malty flavor.

On tap @ Downtown Grill & Brewery. Near black/darkest brown pour with an ample creamy tan head and very good lacing. Roasted malt aroma with a light cocoa and very light coffee. Taste is very smooth, from the oats addition, with a toasted bread and malts flavor, not strong, and cocoa and light coffee. Nice stout, not overly astringent.

Draft at brwer. Pours a jet black with a tan head. Scent is roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is big coffee with roasted malt. Drawback was the water like feel.

On draught at Downtown Grille, Knoxville on 8 July 2006. Black. Quite light bodied. Smooth, creamy oat character comes through strongly. Not that sweet. Pleasant but seemed a little underpowered to me.

Sampled at Noogfest High 5. The body was black with a light brown head. The aroma was coffee and molasses. The taste was lightly tart coffee with some blueberries. I found this one to be a pleasure.

furious (9) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2009 does not count
Had this with the Downtown Grill & Brewery sampler. It was good but compared to the others, it was a step down. A little to strong for my tastes. But certainly not bad.

AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 14, 2009
looks like a menace, black coal body with a dark brown head, roasty flavors of chocolate and mocha, slightly off sourness toward the end of the flavor, chalky black roast finish, a nice stout

Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Stopped in after the Xmas Eve^3 at tronraner’s. Very dark brown pour with garnet highlights and creamy brown head. Dark roasted malt nose. Lactic flavor and coffee with a bitter chocolate finish. Creamy soft body, but has a chalky dry finish which I didn’t care for too much, but pretty damn good for a brewpub stout.
