2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Upping my stout AND Iowa cred with this one. Pour is dark as expected, not quite black but surely not clear. Thin palate gives way to some roasted oats, I dunno, some of the other 200 ratings will be beter for you to read.
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2017 12oz bottle. Pours black with a humongous pale tan head. Aroma is raisins, grain, light molasses, and wet leaves. Taste is roast, metal, some dull chocolate, and a faintly caramel sweetness. Oatmeal doesn’t really come through. Decently bitter. Fairly light bodied. Moderate but too astringent carbonation. Thin, foamy mouthfeel. From the bottle, the mouthfeel is sudsy and unbelievable bad - Palate’s a 2 when poured, 1 from the bottle. Ronritter (874) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2017
12oz bottle black pour with foamy tan head aroma was chocolate, roasted coffee and cereal taste was mostly sweet unclemike (3170) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - MAY 1, 2017
It seems a little light in body, but has a great flavor. Strong roasted coffee flavor. Nice brown head formation on a black beer. Retains its head. Good finish hop. Little or no nose hop. Aroma of roasted barley. Could have more smoothness from the oats. Patrickctenchi (6690) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 13, 2017
Black, with a large, dark tan head.
Chocolate, raisin-oatmeal aroma.
Taste is mildly tangy....chocolate malt, oats....
A little too lactic.
Not bad. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2016
Definitely a product of a bad brewery getting bad ratings on a good beer just because of who they are. Aroma was roasty and big chocolate, clean. Flavor similar, nice clean oatmeal stout id be happy to drink anytime.

Draft at Iowa Taproom, De Monies. 3-16-2016,from notes. Raven feather black color, no head when it arrived at the table. The aroma is bitter chocolate, some grain and chocolate notes. The flavor is bitter chocolate, weak roast and a bit of sugar. Nice dry finish with a somewhat smooth mouthfeel. This breweries standard stout offering. Really weak in the body category. Not bad just very ordinary. DuchessOfIowa (161) - Iowa, USA - FEB 3, 2016
On tap. Rich opaque black hue breaking mahogany on the edges. Thin white head that has minimal lacing. Nice chocolate aroma and taste that has a nice amount of sweetness. Mild earthiness and hazelnut in the finish. Mouthfeel has a silly texture. Very good. rustbucket0873 (460) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Pours black with very tan to brown head that quickly dissipates. The aroma, caramel, sour, coffe, and small amounts of roast. The flavor is caramel and sweet up feont followed by roasty, coffee, and some chocolate. Leaves a sour or astringent flavor at the end. Body is a but sweet and thick. Overall think if it had more flavors up front. Itzjerm (3074) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Appearance and aroma are perfect. Malt with some astringent off flavors. Light Carmel. Tangy.

Pours deep brown with a medium tan head. Mouthfeel is a bit watery for me, but its got a lot of nice chocolatey sweetness.
