UPDATED: OCT 13, 2013 12oz bottle. Poured into pint glass brownish black color, very little off-white head. Aroma of coffee and smokey malt. Taste adds some light chocolate milk. Lighter then expected but smooth. Not bad. DiarmaidBHK (5078) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2012
Bottle from bruisin ales. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Dark chocolate on the nose. Hints of cocoa on the tongue with a slightly bitter finish. Not as silky or as creamy as I was expecting. Solid but not spectacular example of style. Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2012

12 ounce bottle pours a dark brown color, aromas of roasted malt, chocolae, and oats. Flavors of creamy oatmeal, coffee, malt and some chocolate. Reynolds314 (3459) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Boring and very simple. Taste is light chewing on oats. Residual sweetness and a bit thin. Oats dominate and its really not an interesting flavor to dominate something.

pours very dark brown with thick white head. very robust aroma of roast coffee and some smoke. taste is kinda thin on mouth with some ash/smoke flavor on the finish very nutty also. Braudog (6763) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Bottle. Classic pour ... ruddy black with a quick-to-rise tan, fizzy head. The initial aroma is somewhat restrained, but once the consumption begins, I get a sturdy quotient of boldly roasted malt and coffee. Interesting consistency -- lighter than you might expect, but also well-matched to this easy-to-drink toasty stout. Well done! (#4414, 12/19/2011) Brewbie (479) - New York, USA - DEC 4, 2011
