On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with an off-white head. Outstanding and complex finish that I really can’t identify. Has all the requisite flavors of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. I drank this while eating Hama Oysters and it was awesome. bb (9241) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Draft. Brown/black beer with a tan head. Coffee, caramel, and sweet malt aroma. Chocolate, coffee, caramel, big molasses flavor. Medium bodied. Coffee, malt, caramel, and coffee linger with more molassess notes as it warms. Not bad. drfabulous (7814) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Enjoyable oatmeal stout with lots of cream and flavor. Rich and dark. The best of the night that we had at the brewpub. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 23, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Really nice looking stout, big and oily, heading straining over the top of the English pint glass. Really dreamy roasted malt nose, with a light chocolate fadeout and a hint of char somewhere in there. Fine thick mouthfeel, hits the spot. Really tastes more like a dry stout, especially with the chalky finish, but the creamy, chocolatey flavors are there in abundance too, and satisfy regardless of how you categorize it. mcberko (17205) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
On tap at Magnolia, pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma brings out nice notes of roasted malt, oatmeal, and subtle coffee. Flavour brings out dry coffee grounds, oats, and roast. Nice and dry, with a roasty, oaty palate. Great stout.

Black with a creamy tan head. Mild chocolate and roasted grain aroma and taste. Fairly basic. brokensail (16436) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 17, 2011
A: The pour is nearly black with a towering mocha colored head that slowly dies down.
S: Quite chocolatey to begin with, offering up both dark and milk chocolate aromas. There’s a bit of a creaminess to the nose and a nice roasted malt note, with perhaps some burnt sugar.
T: Starts off with the roasted malt flavor. Some molasses and dark chocolate follow and coming through a little bit later is a sweeter, creamier, milk chocolate. Not too bitter, but there is some earthy hop flavor.
M: The body is maybe a little on the thin side and the carbonation is medium.
D: Not quite as rich as many oatmeal stouts, but still a pretty decent beer. Wouldn’t mind ticking this one on tap again. sarie99 (50) - San Francisco, Alabama, USA - DEC 1, 2002
