(Bottle) Pours a inky dark brown color with a small brown head. Aroma of roasted grain, toffee, and coffee. Good amount of oatmeal notes in here as well. Chocolate notes in the finish. Average mouthfeel and palate. I enjoyed this beer. Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Pours a dark cola to chocolate brown. Considerable transparency is evident when backlit. A small, foamy, light tan colored head settles quickly to a thin layer. Large swaths of sheet like lacing coat the glass well. The aroma is roasty, with light baker’s chocolate, coffee, and toasted barley. Surprisingly, a heavy dose of resinous pine and green, grassy hops come through on a deep inhale. The flavor confirms this green, hoppy component, as it does with the bittersweet, dry, roasty malt components. The mouthfeel is on the light side, especially for the style, with a fizzy carbonation tickling the tongue and lingering for a good while. Finishes medium-long, with almost an IPA-like, grassy finish. Not at all what I was expecting, but pretty drinkable. Sort of resembles a poor man’s Stone 11th more than a sweet stout. jbean (110) - Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Draught at Maproom. Black with thin tan head. Nice stout, pretty robust flavors for an oatmeal stout. Very nice. jeffwilliams11 (310) - hooterville, Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2008

Awesome stout. Great taste with an amazing aftertaste. Finishes strong but smooth. Amazing bouquet also.

Not a bad stout! Nice and sweet with a fine coffee taste. The smell though is outrageous! I could smell this all day! The bottle caught my eye and Im so glad I got the last sixer! Haslinger (929) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Not the best stout I have ever had. Probably would never buy again but had a strong taste and didn’t really stand out to me in a good or a bad way. IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Poured a dark brown/black with a medium brown head. Not as much flavor as I would have expected from a stout. Tasted of light chocolate, coffee, grain. I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy again. Still not a bad beer at all. fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - DEC 30, 2007

Had This on draft at Teller’s in Hyde Park a suburb of Cincinnati..If you have not had this on draft i highly recommend trying it on draft to enjoy the true beauty of this stout. Creamy sweet nice carmel roasted malt overtones. Gentle on the palette and easy to drink alcohol hidden very well and was an awesome choice with my steak dinner!
