hotstuff (5210) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 6, 2004
On tap at LBC. This beer formed a very small sized tan head that contained fine-medium sized bubbles that fully diminished. This beer was opaque with a black hue. The aroma was sweet, caramel and some coffee notes. The flavor was that of coffee and smoke. The mouthfeel was smooth and this was a medium bodied beer with good lacing. A good Sweet Stout and worth trying. patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2009
bottle - Pours near black with no head. That made me wonder if this bottle was a bad one, but fortunately it was fine. The aroma is of dark roast malt with coffee notes. The flavor is of roast malt, oatmeal, and coffee and finishes with some good bitterness from the roast and hops. It’s medium bodied and quite enjoyable overall. raymundo00 (19) - - MAY 15, 2012
Nice stout with plenty of chocolate, caramel, and nutty notes. Enjoyable stout with an oatmeal equalizer. shrubber85 (11508) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2013
Draft. Chocolate and oatmeal malt aroma. Black with moderate head. Chocolate and oatmeal mat flavor. Light ashy finish. Solid beer. kaser (6364) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Black with very creamy off white head. Not much aroma. Creamy texture. Taste is milky and sweet. Slight cocoa. Very enjoyable. Had this poured from draft as part of a sampler at Lafayette Brewing Co.

On tap at the brewpub. Interesting light toasted oatmeal and grass cookie. Amino and omega acids. Dense. Pours a surprisingly pale ruby-brown, fairly dark, but no oatmeal stout. Thick tan cream up top. Flavor is oily and has that good, toothy oatmeal flavor, but not really the density to hold it up. Roast character melds in well, but doesn’t stand up amongst the light bodied. A bit of yeast. Not the best density, but a very decent flavor profile. Maybe more of an oatmeal porter than an oatmeal stout. JaBier (8132) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Sample at Lafayette. Darkest brown color with a thin tan head. Malty and roasty aroma with some chocolatey sweetness. Creamy malt flavor with some sweet chocolate before a dry roasty finish. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a very small tan head. The aroma is pretty heavy on the coffee but also has some chocolate and roasted malt notes. The flavor is coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and tobacco. Medium-thick, slightly creamy mouthfeel and low carbonation. Dogbrick (13388) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2010 Sample from a bottle at the Day Before Labor Day party. Pours dark brownish-black with a medium beige head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and mild coffee. Medium body with flavors of roasty coffee, sweet malt and chocolate. The finish is roasty with a lightly bittersweet chocolate aftertaste. Decent Stout overall. weitz15 (593) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Black pour, tan head. Aroma of hops and some malts. Flavor is very sweet for a stout, with a hoppy finish to combat what one might think was going to be smooth.
