From a 12oz bottle. Dark chocolate colored body with a finger of thin bubbled, creamy tan head. Clean, toasty aroma of mild coffee and an earthy, rustic "oatiness". Very faint herbal hops. Notes of chocolate and raisin. The char character is restrained, allowing more of the subtle roast complexities to shine through. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a slick, chewy texture. This creates the impression of an aptly named, velvety texture to the mouthfeel, but is still pleasantly dry enough to maintain an enjoyable level of drinkability. The flavors bring out substantially more complexity than the aroma initially reveals. Flavors of light chocolate and raisin add a touch of sweetness up front on the palate, balanced by a toothy, toasted oat flavor. As the flavors develop, hints of vanilla and licorice begin to emerge. Very light hop flavor initially, but takes on an earthy character that melds nicely with the oat flavors. Pleasant flavors of licorice and dark chocolate linger in the finish. Impressively complex considering its modest size, but also crafted well enough to enjoy several glasses at a sitting.

glennmastrange (2711) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2016
Bottle. Moderate to heavy toasted, dark bread and milk chocolate for the malt, faint herbs for the hops, moderate dough and leather for the yeast, with toffee and vanilla in the background. Head is average size, frothy, beige, with thin slippery lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Palate is medium, slick, with a lively carbonation and a little chalky in the finish. Just like the name implies, this is a smooth Stout.

Pours near-black with a thin tan cap. Aroma is distinctly oat-forward with chocolate notes. Flavor is delicious, with roast coffee and chocolate dominating. Very smooth and drinkable. Clean finish. Excellent.

ChiGuy68 (561) - Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2016
Tasted on nitro at Quenchers Saloon. It poured an opaque brown with a dense beige head and solid lacing. Rich chocolate malt nose with a taste as smooth as French silk. Bold, tasty, and so easy going down.

Keg, half American pint. Pours creamy guinness with a medium tan foam subsiding average slow. Scent is sugary cake and Porter yeast. Taste is guinness but lighter and sweeter. Great. Finish is a little bitter bite? Not pure beer maybe.
