on tap-pours a light brown ring for a head and black color. Aroma is sweet oatmeal/chocolate-dark malt, slight acidic hops. Taste is anise/licorice, metallic/earthy/slight acidic hops, sweet oatmeal-dark malt. blipp (9502) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Deep brown, almost black, with a thin beige head. Roasty aroma, a little bit of chocolate. The flavor has the typical oatmeal stout mouthfeel and sweetness, with nice roasted malt notes and some coffee in the finish. Pretty good. fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. Aroma a touch soapy with some coffee and sweet chocolate. Flavor of some coffee and roasted malt. The sweet chocolate tried to return in the finish, but this and much of the flavor was covered up by astringency. Weak bodied to boot. Unimpressive.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a tan head that fades quickly. Aroma is very sweet, of molasses and Hershey’s syrup. Flavor of coffee, roasted malt. Thin-bodied but decent.

On tap at the brewery. Nice rich malt aroma with coffee and chocolate and some lactose. Mild hops with some good fruity character. Sweet and rich. Dark brown-black clear with quickly dissipating tan head. Medium watery body with medium high carbonation, light carbonic acidity. Starts fairly sweet with cocoa and coffee, mild vanilla. Dry hoppy finish with decent bitter character. Carbonic acidity lasts for a while. Dry watery after.

Weak oatmeal stout. Very empty mouthfeel. The flavors are dull and lifeless. Not very much roast, a bit too sweet, and overall just not very tasty. Skip it. TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Pours a deep brown with amber highlights and an average creamy/bubbly tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate malt, touch of roastiness, some coffee and oats. Flavor was a mix of the same...creamy yet a substantial amount of roast.
