Dark brown/black, tan head. Aroma of baker's chocolate, biscuit, coffee. Flavor: lots of coffee, biscuity malt, light chocolate, a little earthy oat character, grainy finish.

Bottle at bar. Black color, brown head. Salty taste with roasted malts, coffee, oats, chocolate and nuts. Nice smooth body with mostly malts. Roasty finish with coffee and nuts. Excellent stout. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Nice and solid oatmeal stout. Sufficiently roasty. Nicely sweet. Not the best I've had, but quite drinkable!

Pours jet black with a tan head. Tastes of oatmeal and sweet malt. It's ok but not great.

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 Sam’s 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.

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

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.
