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.

Deep and dark with a nose of fire-roasted nuts. A bit of coffee on the palate set off by dark roasted grains and a bit of malt. All in all, a fair stout.

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 2, 2006
Draught at brewery. Pours dark brown, with a dark tan head. The appearance gives me hope, but the aroma lets me down. Some faint roastiness and oats pretty much sums it up. The flavor has some more qualities, like coffee, but as my girl noted, the coffee tatses like water sucked out of leftover coffee grounds.

On tap at the Downtown Grill. Poured dark brown with ruby highlights and a dense brown head. Smoky, roasty coffee aroma. Flavor is smoky, coffee, toffee, caramel, and the finish is quite smooth and satisfying. An excellent stout. I can see why they always seem to run out and am glad to have finally had the chance to try it!

Awesome flavor, dark color with milk chocolatey head. The hops give it a great crispness. I wish I had ordered a second. Will have it when I come back.

awebster (165) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 23, 2006
A fair example of a stout, but it’s the IPA of stouts. The malt flavor is almost entirely killed by the hops in this beer.

3.4
Tmoney99 (14460) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2005
Draft sampler at DGB. Black color with a moderate light brown head that diminished slowly. Moderate roasted malt and coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth creamy texture. Good complex roasted malt and grain flavor with a moderate sweet finish. Good stout.

2.9
NachlamSie (3481) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2005
on draught. Deep dark brown with a reddish hue and a thin tan head. The aroma is pretty much of oats. The aroma is hard to detect, like the other Downtown brews. The first obvious flavor in this one is oats, then there’s something like old truck-stop coffee, then some faint sweetness like coconut milk. This brew could’ve been more harmonious.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Draught at the brewpub. Pours dark brownish black with a dissipating light brown head. Fairly weak aroma. The flavor is mostly oats, charred malts, nuts, and day-old coffee. Decent, but not great.

3.6
BeerandBlues2 (13307) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Tap. Dark chocolate and coffee aromas with a malt and oat nose. Pours opaque with a creamy tan head and creamy lacing. Flavor is a complex hop and chocolate malt blend with a creamy oat finish. Dark and creamy full bodied palate.
