On draught at Fitger’s. APPEARANCE-
Jet black, light nougat colored head with great lacing.
NOSE- deep notes of coffee with a smidge of malty sweetness.
FLAVOR- coffee blasts into my mouth my with every sip. Roasty malts prevail as the coffee fades into the distance. After suggestion, I taste a bit of dark chocolate residuals in my mouth. Ratman197 (14822) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2014

Great deep brown pour, brown head. Creamy and delicious! The oats give this tremendous body, good lactose sweetness, milk chocolate, toasted nuts. BeerKurve (520) - - NOV 14, 2013
Pours a pitch black color with a thin brown head, no lacing and light carbonation. Nose of roasted barley, oatmeal, chocolate, malts and some mild hops. Flavor has a sweeter malty chocolate & oatmeal taste with some caramel-toffee maltiness and mild hoppiness. Body is moderate but with some thickness and the carbonation is fairly mild. Pretty creamy and tasty!
