Black, as one might expect. Vanilla and chocolate in the aroma, very nice and subtle. Has familiar coffee and chocolate flavors, too. Smooth and tasty.

Maybe I didnt let this warm up enough, but it wasnt what I expected. It poured brown/black and had a roasted coffee aroma. It was light in flavor and had a sweet finish.

strangaj (250) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Pours a dark brown....almost black...with slight tan head. Aroma is a bit unremarkable, but I can pick up the roast and chocolate. Taste is smooth and even with roast and chocolate and suprising light for a stout. Couldnt really identify the coffee flavoring.

This beer is a bit lighter than others Ive had in the stout style lately, but this very drinkable beer still fits the category, and is still qutie good. This beer doesnt pour inky black the way Speedway Stout or Old Rasputin does (Ive had both recently), although it is still rather dark, with some less serious head formation. Aroma is of dark roasted malt ("burned pizza crust") and is good. Taste is a bit light, but very roasted malt tasting...good. The beer is very dry in the front, but the finish is a bit sweeter. Mouthfeel is very light for a beer of this style. This is the most drinkable stout Ive had in recent memory.

Black with white head. Nice rich aroma with some roast and chocolate. Rich malty flavor with good roast. Medium-full bodied, but lacked the slickness usually associated with oats. Overall nice.

Theres a lot of chocolate in the aroma and flavor. Also, some noticeable oat sweetness in there too. A pretty solid stout, no doubt.
