Pours jet black with a tan head. Tastes of oatmeal and sweet malt. It's ok but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours black with a big pillowy off white head. Smells of oats and faint chocolate. Taste is earth oats, a little bit of dark roasty chocolate. Decent.

120z bottle to shaker. Courtesy of Jimmeekrek. Nice sweet oatmeal stout with a hint of dry stout to it. Nice texture from the oats. Enjoyable.

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2013
From bottle at Sams Cafe in Tiburon. Light chocolate, coffee, licorice, and burnt-roasted malts. Mild hop character and a little tang. Dark brown-black with thin tan head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts dry with roasted malt and light burnt character. Carbonic and sugar tang with mealy-meaty soy finish. Nutty mild sweet after.

Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Aroma is rich dark roasted malt with hints of coffee and chocolate. Pours dark velvet black with rapidly dissipating dark tan head and no lacing. The taste richly robust! Roasted malts, with hints of coffee, chocolate, dark fruit. The taste is on the front side with nothing bit velvet on the backside. Full body with soft carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel. Overall, a great stout. Thanks for sharing, Ken ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very good natural coffee flavors. Another winner from Firestone. Used to be called Velvet Merkin. One can understand the name change.

Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Pours dark with creamy mocha scent. Malts in the nose. Roasty malt taste but lighter than what I am used to. To be honest, I had this later in an evening of beer tasting after some heavier stouts and it feels like I should have started with this. A decent stout but there are better out there.

pours black with a minimal brown head. This beer tastes of dark roasted chocolate and roasted coffee, it is slightly sweet followed by a tiny bit of bitterness!

Bottle. The look is dark, black in color, and has a slight tan head. The smell is malty, roasty, chocolate, dry, nutty, cocoa, and coffee. The taste is roasty, sweet, malt, oats, and chocolate.

On tap at the Common Table. Dark brown with a brown head. I get a lot of chocolate and light coffee notes in the aroma and flavor, as well as some roasted malt and some oats. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice low-alcohol stout.
