Bottle. Smells of licorice, chocolate, coffee... Looks awesome. Nearly pitch black, tan head. Taste almost exactly how it smells - solid stout. Lasting palate.

OldGrowth (3425) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - APR 29, 2012
Pint at Crown and Anchor pub in Monterey. Nice rich roasty. Nice milky oat and coffee dark chocolate aroma. Blackish, brown color, good head, spotty lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, sweet finish. Darn tasty. Im equally happy with aroma in flavor. Flavor has nice smokey, chocolate taste. Aroma shows little more of the oat. Winner.

mansquito (6070) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 29, 2012
Big Top, Rosslyn variety 24 pack: Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma is pretzel, roasted malts, chocolate, and dough. Taste is kind of bitter. Dark chocolate flavours manifest themselves powerfully. Really nice mouthfeel: velvet is a good way to describe it. Not really sweet. Well-balanced drinkable and full of flavour.

sonnycheeba (5843) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2012
Cask. Pours opaque black with thick, frothy beige head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, earthy hops, figs, light oak, and faint coffee. Flavor is malt forward with faint dark fruit esters and hops; dry finish. Medium body with low carbonation and warmth.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 27, 2012
On draft at Zodos in Goleta, CA. Ebony color with garnet highlights and small tan head. Aroma primarily dark roast coffee and bitter chocolate. Flavor follows suit with a bit of fig and herby hops noticible as well. Quite nice. Medium body and prickly carbonation.

sherm1016 (1274) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2012
12oz bottle received as an extra in trade. Thanks Kev! Pours a jet black color with a tan head. Aroma is malty, roasty, chocolate. Just a little heavy on the palate with soft, smooth, creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, chocolate, roasty, coffee, with a light, bittersweet finish. An excellent stout for not being an imperial.

mensch (289) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2012
Deep opaque brown, unimpressive fizzy little head. Impressive cocoa and coffee aromas. The body is a bit too thin for the style, but the flavor is all there. Deep, dark roasted malts with the coffee and chocolate, then followed by a dry huskiness and burnt toffee notes in the finish. Rich, complex and delicious.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - APR 22, 2012
12 oz bottle. As good as any Oatmeal Stout out there. Chocolate, espresso, and a roasty, nutty flavor dominate. Smooth, creamy texture. Highly drinkable.

Smells of coffee and chocolate, white thin head, light taste with good flavor, but thin texture and body. Easy to drink.
