wedgie9 (2703) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 21, 2014
Tasted on 4/21/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Frugal MacDoogal. Pours nearly black with an average tan head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is sweet creamy malt with plenty of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and a touch of vanilla. The flavor is dark with a bit of a nutty note, along with the same lightly sweet creamy vanilla, dark chocolate, and coffee. The body is full and creamy with average carbonation and a long creamy coffee and dark chocolate finish.

12floz bottle, BOD: 10.16.2017, $1.75 unit cost, nonic glass. Pours with a one finger head atop a dark body with hues of brown that show in the light. Smooth aroma invokes roasted and to a lesser extent sweet qualities. Dark chocolate is the dominant flavor, but there is some subtle dark fruit sweetness too (charcoal when taken in bigger gulps). Of course there is the given coffee component. Body is medium and creamy feeling. I self recommend to me, I do.

MaltOne (408) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 16, 2017
Very nice. Pours opaque, dark coffee brown with large puffy tan head. Dark roasted aroma, coffee. Taste is rich lightly sweet, dark roasted toast, coffee, nutty notes, with a slightly acidic/ashy/hoppy finish. Full bodied palate. Overall excellent oatmeal stout.

Pour dark with a thick, foamy head. Aroma is of sweet chocolate and soy sauce. Taste is sweet chocolate with a slight bite of hops. A solid stout with a good deal of availability to people of all beer tastes.

On tap at the brewpub. Long time ago. This was the first and the best one of the night. The type of sweet stout I enjoy. I have little recollections on details. Shameless tickmark here for the hoarding.

On tap. Yummy stout, very nicely balanced. Dark, toasty and just a bit of sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fidemaster (336) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2017
Aroma of coffee. Dark Black Color. Starts off a touch sweet, with coffee, and chocolate. Has a bitter finish, but a but bit too bitter. The mouthful is watery. Its an OK sweet stout but not great.

jrodooo5 (1748) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 22, 2017
Aromatic, pretty, & tasty this is an excellent stout! Pours black w/ a tan head & solid lacing. The aroma has some nice chocolate notes as well as a hint of roasted malt. The flavor is quite similar. It has a lovely soft mouthfeel as advertised. The chocolate carries throughout. Just a very good example of the style overall!

12oz (Educators on Tap)- Nice white head with some lacing. Good dark color but can still see through it. Great vanilla and nutty notes and then roasty malt flavor. A bit cloying tasting.

3.4
Bebum (1121) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 9, 2017
Darkbrown, tall, short-lived head. Full body, flavorful, smooth, not silky, highly carbonated, lively mouthfeel despite low ABV, average length. Moderately bittersweet, just right acidity, predominantly bitter finish. Strong flavor of un-malted roasted grains, dark roast coffee. Enjoyable but not high on my list. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
