UPDATED: APR 13, 2013 I was blown away by the seduction of this black beauty. Indeed black as the forest night, with a medium-sized creamy head. Wonderful aroma of dark chocolates, that typical silo touch of oatmeal stouts and a pleasant hint of cassis. This is sweet oatmeal, with the woody malts and the dark chocolates and the caramels and milk perfectly balanced behind a very subtle bitterness, never hoppy, but just dry. Very invigourating mouth feel, creamy, smooth velvet on the tongue, to make your eyes peacefully close with pleasure and bring back memories of anything good, no matter if this beer is new or not. Adorable! jmagnus87 (3302) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2013

Pours a very dark black with a tan head. Espresso and sweet chocolate aromas. Slightly bitter with cocoa/coffee flavors throughout the drink. Leaves a light bitter taste on palate. MikeJslc (778) - Alabama, USA - APR 3, 2013

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. demmbonz (784) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2013
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.
