Bottle. Black pour with a fleeting tan head. Smells faintly of espresso. Taste is creamy chocolate, nutty malt, and a bit of coffee. Also tastes a bit flat; finish is dry and abrupt.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 It is like... rich dark chocholate with hint of milk. A boozy bitter-sweet warmth not unlike amaretto. A full and balanced beer with a rather semi-sweet finish. Color is between velvet and coffee. The head is fleeting yet creamy and lacing.

ccex (1385) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2013
12 oz bottle pours black with a decent tan head. Aroma has lots of espresso/coffee and roasted malts with a bit of chocolate. Body is medium with some carbonation. Mouthfeel is creamy. Taste is slightly sweet with a bitter finish. A very good, easily drinkable stout but not one of the great ones.

Voodoo (714) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Poured a dark brown with a quickly vanishing head. Taste of coffee, quick hit of smoked malt and bitterness but very hollow mouthfeel which ends with carbonation instead of taste.

Bottle from trade with skycracksopen, thanks! Almost black with a light brown head. Aroma: roasted and creamy, oatmeal cookies, chocolate. Taste: chocolate coated oatmeal cookies, soft roast, light licorice, quite sweet, some raisins, some syrup. Medium bodied, smooth. Very nice stout.

Tons of over roasted espresso on the nose, dry cacao powder, burned oak logs, oats and granola. mouthfeel is medium bodied, less creamy and full then i expected for an oatmeal beer. pretty solid all around but not outstanding or best in class.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5498) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle from Craft Beer Base. It poured an inky black with a brownish-white head. A mild chocolate aroma which is followed by a crisp tasting beer with rich caramel notes. It was very flavorful for such a low ABV, very well balanced & easy to drink. A satisfying brew!

Doghair (464) - Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Dark brown with a light brown foam. Disappears quick to a nice ring. Aroma of roasty malt and coffee. Light but it?s there. Taste is roasted malt, some sweet coffee in the middle, with a little hop finish. Clean up front with very clear flavors. Light palate with good carbonation. Very good beer. Easy to drink. Very enjoyable.

3.8
tmoreau (4734) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2013
On tap during Lunar Brewing Co.’s Firestone Walker Tap Takeover gathering. Dispensed to a FW logo shaker not necessarily viscously, with a black/brown hue, brownish tan, cream & bubbles head, and thick strands of ribbony lacing on the glass. The aroma was heightened roastiness, coffee, a little burnt/smoky character, with a touch of baker’s chocolate on the back. A moderate, earthy hop bitterness partnered with the smoky/woodiness in the flavor, along with a good, creamy malt presence, and maybe just a slight hint of treacly sweetness. Not necessarily full bodied, with soft carbonation and a dry finale, but definitely a fine, mellowed Stout.
