ark brown in color, clear with a thin head. Nice Sweet stout flavors and aroma. Easy drinking this had a great finish.
Festival Tap: Black with roasty nose. Some chocolate coffee in the flavor, but flavor was rather light all around. Mouthfeel was especially creamy which was welcome. Slight dryness at finish, description says 44IBU. MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Sampled at HotShotz Indy tasting May 24, 2008 - Aroma is dark malts, oats, grease and chocolate. Pours light black with a small head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma and is pretty mellow. This may be due to it’s place in the tasting. Palate is creamy and smooth. Not bad and will probably rate higher when I get it on it’s own. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2008
on tap-pours a light brown head that laces and black color. Aroma is sweet dark malt/oat-chocolate/roasty, lactose. Taste is sweet dark malt/oat-chocolate/roasty/anise, lactose, slightly acidic hops. OK/mild carbonation. Nice. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2010
Roasted malts, charred notes, and oatmeal/oat notes that add a touch of soft sweetness. Pours dark brown with little head and no lace. First flavors are roast and char followed by light chocolate and oat notes, light balancing sweetness gives way to char and earthy hop notes on the finish. Very low almost non existent carbonation - no hiss when popped. Smooth silky body with just a bit too much char in the finish to accurately reflect style imo.

Sampled from the tap at the 2010 GTMW. Poured black with a gray brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had lots of roasted malts with some dark grains and a slight oat note. Flavor was bitter with roasted grains and a hint of underlying oat. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2012

Pours black with ruby highlights....short/thin dark head.
Chocolate, coffee aroma.
Chocolate with oat creaminess in flavor..
Good taste, but a little uneven and rough. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2014
355ml bottle. Black in colour with a thin tan head, light lacing. The aroma is very rich, oaty, bitter with some molasses, chocolate sweetness. The flavour is a bit thin, lightly sweet with dark chocolate, burnt malts, some bitterness. Thin mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes roasty, sweet and long. This is quite oaty, provides the finish with a kick.
