Bottle from Beer Geek. Pours near opaque with ruby transparency at the edges under strong light. Large frothy tan head that laces a bit. Aromas of chocolate and coffee. Very light coffee. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is chocolate and oatmeal. Extremely smooth finish. Going very well with Black Forest Cherry gooey cookie!

Bottle poured a clear dark brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee and light vanilla. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of dark chocolate, coffee and carmel with a smooth malty finish.

Not a bad stout just a boring one.

3.8
Dogbrick (13013) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2004
This beer is an opaque dark brown (almost black) color with a medium beige head that dissipates slowly. Thin curtain of lacing throughout the glass. The aroma is very roasty, with coffee and dark chocolate. Medium-bodied and closer in consistency to a Porter than a Stout. Roasted coffee at the forefront, with molasses, chocolate and some hops in the flavor. The finish is mildly bitter and roasty. Overall this is a pretty good Stout, but it is lacking richness.

3.4

Decent Oatmeal stout, started out very nice, got a little boring by the end, but overall good.
