Draft. Pours brown/black with red highlights and a small tan head. Deep aroma of roasty, burnt cocoa. Nice smell. Full mouthfeel, roasty chocolate taste. Smooth and easy to drink. This is pretty good.

12oz bottle. Poured a dark brown with red edges and an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of roast, milk chocolate, cocoa and light coffee. Tastes of milk chocolate, roast, and a light coffee finish. Body on the somewhat thin side.

wmubronco1992 (709) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Bottle - Pours a dark black with a heartly tan head. Plently of chocolate and carmal flavor. Not much carbonation. I never get that excited about trying a new stout, but this was a good beer. I would drink again.

Guerde (1295) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2007
(bottle, thanks Brewfiend) Pours dark with ruby around the edges and a nice tan head. Nice aroma of roasted coffee. Flavors of dark chocolate with a nice roasted coffee finish that was slightly bitter. Not bad at all.

Black color with solid oatmeal and roasted malts on the nose. Slightly watery finish with a similar flavor profile to the aroma.

The only thing missing from this Sweet Stout is head! I poured three from a bottle and not a single one had head. There was nice lacing though. Aroma is great -- malt and cocoa; flavor matches and has a little coffee too. If there were a light brown or tan head this might be my top-rated stout.

12oz bottle. Pours a dark roasted coffee color; medium tan head with lacing keeping patterns on the sides of the glass. Sweet, chocolate-laden aroma, showing some milk chocolate and cocoa; roasted coffee. Medium-to-full, creamy mouthfeel: chewy toffee and chocolate presence upfront - especially creamy and milk chocolaty throughout - with a dry roasted coffee presence coming through mid-palate. Ends slightly dry, with nuts and bitter chocolate.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - AUG 28, 2007
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. This oatmeal stout poured a super dark brown color with a thin, bubbly, dark tan head that quickly faded away. No lace. The aroma consisted of milk chocolate, roasted malts, a note of mocha coffee, and also a slight hint of hops at the backend. The flavor was made up of strong, rich milk chocolate, coffee, and just a hint of roast. The roasted malt definately took a backseat to the chocolate. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and lightly creamy with minimal carbonation, finishing just slightly bitter. An excellent stout.

bottle - Pours very dark brown with a one finger head. The aroma has plenty of chocolate and dark roast malt. Similar flavors are abundant and very tasty. Medium with some light hops in the finish, this stout is very good.
