Firemoose15 (567) - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2009
Bottle. Aroma is nicely oat-ey if thats a word. Pours an oily black like I just pulled the drain plug on an engine. Flavor is quite tasty, deep roasted malts, coffee, toll house morsels. Palate is nicely filling. Overall, I believe Ill be finishing the bottle in short order. Get Some!!

Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Beautiful stout with a most charming roast complex. Dark dark dark complex thats got tons of black wheat, chocolate, and lots of smokey earthiness and dry bitter qualities to it. Some sweetness on the swallow, but its malt sweetness and the malts in this one are smokey and earthy so it isnt a too much of a wet sweetness. Great beer, nice and chickory and dark.

Black body with a thin head of small tan bubbles. Dates in the aroma along with some caramel, hints of chocolate, and coffee. Toffee, caramel, dates and plums, along with the hints of chocolate and coffee in the taste. A little bit of lingering bitterness.

TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle from World Beers. Dark brown-black pour with a short brown head with good retention and leaving moderate lace. Nose is lightly chocolatey. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Baking chocolate, toffee and black cherries all without being overly sweet. There is some light pine hops, but very much in the background. Finish is medium and bittersweet chocolate. Could be a chocolate milk stout very tasty.

badhack (550) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Very, very dark brown. Thick and creamy from oats. Plenty of chocolate and toast, molasses, prunes. Some yeast on the nose and a recessed hops in the aroma and taste. Very interesting profile, well balanced and delicious.

mrjaxson (547) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2015
A lighter weight stout, sweet in the middle but with a healthy dose of hops to even out the typical roasted heaviness . Different and very good. Poured from a bottle.

AbbeyRoade (547) - Missouri, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Alcohol definitely noticeable- like a alcohol swab, actually. Alcohol odor shines through, too. On the other hand, this black ale does still have a rather pleasant dark chocolate/coffee taste and decently smooth body. Nothing to write home about though.
