COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Butters (4062) - 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.

3.2
nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 19, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a dark brown/black color with a one finger brown head. The aroma was roasted malt, coffee and some oatmeal. The flavor was a little sweet, with oatmeal being dominate. The body was a little thin, but this was a decent brew.

2.8
SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2008
This poured black in color with a thin brown head. The nose was quite roasted with strong roasted coffee aromas followed by roasted malt and a bit of sweet oatmeal toward the end. In the mouth this was simple and once again showed the roasted flavors from the nose along with sweet dark fruit. The palate was on the thin side and lacked the power I wanted.

3.5
lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Dark black with ruby highlights and a finger of nice tan head. Coffee and chocolate aroma. Taste is bitter roasted malt and harsh green coffee bites. Nice but I don’t think this is a sweet stout.

markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Weak in the small amount of aroma that I could smell. It had bite, hops, water, and notes of dark chocolate. I did not like this beer.

3.4
decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2007
On tap. A coffee malty aroma. A dark deep almost black pour. A sweet stout that was very dry to me. with a good bitter and a flavor of chocolate. A solid palate with good carbonation and mouthfeel. A solid stout but I didn’t get the sweet.

3.2
TURDFERGUSON (4068) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2007
On tap at the Knoxville Brewers Jam. Pours totally black with a small tan head. Pretty dry for a sweet stout, or so i thought. Some chocolate and coffee notes along with roasted malt. Not great, but the best of the lot I had from downtowin grill.

3.7
nearbeer (5669) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 23, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2009 Draft. Opaque black with a medium and lasting head. Aroma is peppery, woody, and metallic coffee. Flavor is coffee, charred wood with slight smoke, peppery metallic molasses and marshmallow. Palate is medium bodied, slightly watery and smooth. Dryish finish. Hops seem to dominate the malt a bit much, but a good beer nonetheless.
