3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 1 pt. 6 fl. oz bottle with no lot code or brew date listed. It drizzles its way out of the bottle with a hearty bubbly sound. It pours nearly black with about a half-finger beige head. Aroma of oatmeal and hops. The mouthfeel is almost chewy with good consistency. The taste is of cocoa, oatmeal, and dry hops. A nice brew.
Originally reviewed: 11/9/09. Poured into my pint glass. Pours a deep jet black with a 1-inch-sized tan head on top. This disappears quickly to a ring on the edge. Leaves no lace at all. Smells of roasted malts, cashews, some light cocoa powder, and booze.
The mouth is crisp, but retains a subtle smooth creamy feel on the finish. Flavors mask the scent pretty well. Big roasty punch at the forefront followed by a bittersweet chocolate flavor that is very pleasant. Mild hop presence. This is a pretty good stout. I consumed the entire bomber and could have had more, if it was available. Recommend. johnnnniee (4312) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Pours a dark brown with the faintest of ruby highlights when held to light. Smallish mocha head dissipates quickly leaving some lace on the way down the glass. Smells of chocolate syrup, licorice, brown sugar, a touch of alcohol and a slight solvent smell. Taste is chocolate, licorice and roast. Lingering bitterness in the finish could be roast or hops I can’t tell. Creamy/oily mouthfeel, medium body, light but ample carbonation. Nice oatmeal stout, could be a bit creamier but tasty as is. Reminded me more of a porter than a stout, but that line is so blurry I’ll say its as advertised. Great stout, great price, from an up and coming local brewer.

(bottle from mcox90, 5/10/10). Black color. Medium tan head. Moderate roasted malt aroma with light alcohol. Flavor of moderate roasted malt and moderate dark chocolate. Avg duration. Light bitter finish. Thin texture. Soft carbonation. Spare lacing. crusianbeer (116) - Oregon, USA - SEP 25, 2010
bottle from awesome girlfriend from some place in the boston area.
pours a nice inky black with little to no head or lacing.
not much on the nose, though I think it is too cold to be honest.
taste... nice smoothness from the oatmeal, but is is really thin. some chocolate and coffee roasted flavor, but not much else. It was clearance priced, and I think that is the only way I would have her buy his again. nothing much there. Has a bit of a bitter aftertaste on it. Just average. I want a bit more from an oatmeal stout.
Edit, I was surprisingly mistaken... as this warms, it does not get better or more aromatic... very odd. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Pours deep darkness with light mocha head. The aroma is caramel, black licorice and roasted malts. The taste is a pleasing mix of toffee and dark roasted malts then moving towards some caramel and mildly burnt malts. Nice stout achieving a modestly creamy body too.

A deep dark stout with a thick brown head. A pleasant torrefied coffee aroma with some fruity esters, smooth chocolate. In mouth, a classy stout with bitter chocolate, smooth herbal hops, torrefied coffee, quite nice, oily mouthfeel. Tasted June 20, 2010. sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2010
AH just for mentioning the ever shroud of mystery around Bldg 7, this beer should get 100.

Pours very dark brown/black. Aroma is chocolate, cola and some roasted malts. Mouthfeel is very, very chewy with some carbonation. Tastes cocoa chocolaty, and not *super* interesting., but tasty for sure. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 9, 2010
