Dans Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #63 of 90. On tap at New Holland in Holland, MI. Pours black/brown with ruby edges. Roasted malts and oatmeal are evident, and it is semi-smooth in taste. One of their better offerings.

Creamy black pour into Ciney glass. Aroma of coffee. Good smoky flavor with chocolate, coffee, salted nuts and oatmeal. This is smooth and creamy. Much better than anticipated.

Chocolate and oat flavors and aromas, blended with hints of coffee, caramel and an aftertaste of cookies. An easy to drink stout, though a bit too light bodied.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - MAR 23, 2008
12oz. bottle served in a shaker pint. Poured a deep brown with a slight tan head. Molasses/burnt sugar in the aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Lots of chocolate malt. Really long dry coffee finish. Maybe a little thin. Pretty easy drinking. Just enough hops to balance malt. Decent brew.

Pours a black color with khaki head. As promised, gets better when it warms to 45 degrees

mcjay (463) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Pours dark with a brownish hue and a medium brown head. Has a nice roasted malt aroma with a rich and silky chocolate taste. Kind of mild for an oatmeal stout but sometimes that’s a good thing.

zappafan99 (463) - ASCENSION ISLAND - FEB 3, 2009
Taste 2/9 Bottle. Looks: Black and opaque with a nice foam. Aroma: Roasted and toasted malt in the from of coffee and chocolate. Sweetness and freshness. Taste: Smooth mouthfeel from the oatmeal with a balance from the acidity. A little simple but very drinkable for a fan of dark roasts.

EyeAmBaldman (461) - Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Pours dark brown, opaque, with a tan head. Aroma is licorice and figs. Taste is raisins, oats, and roasted malt. Not real bitter at all. Has a medium mouth feel. Pretty decent stout.

zeke626 (460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle, pours a dark brown, red-hued body with a short-lived light brown head. Aroma of brown sugar, lightly toasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. Flavors of semi-sweet chocolate, roasted malts, and a hint of coffee. Bitter cocoa and coffee finish. Actually kind of bitter for a sweet stout, but it is enjoyable. Medium-bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel.

demannu (459) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Very pleasing aroma of chocolate with some roasted coffee beans as well. Mouth feel is creamy and smooth like an oatmeal stout should be. Taste follows the smell with both milk and dark chocolates along with notes of roasted coffee before finishing with a surprising smoky slight bitterness. Not an elite stout but still solid.
