12 Oz bottle. Pours black with a big, brown head that dissipates quickly, leaving strong, slow legging. Tons of chocolate, coffee and roasty malt with some cherry on the nose. Lots of chocolate flavor, quite sweet with lingering burnt malt bitterness and alcohol at the end. Thick, creamy mouthfeel with cloying sugars. Overall, really decent. Hits all the senses well.

This is probably one of the smoothest beers I have ever had. Comparable to Dark Horses Too Cream Stout in that regard. Has a typical dark/brown coloration of a stout with a bold yet smooth mix of coffee, chocolate, and a hint of roasted nuts. It is a thin for a stout but makes up in drinkability and SMOOTHNESS.

Pours raven black with a creamy tan head. Coffee, chocolate and oatmeal greet the nose. Taste is chock full of dark roasted malt with chocolate and coffee notes accompanied by an unparalleled creaminess. Very muted hops. Pouring and enjoying this beer is poetry in motion. Pairs well with beef, soft-ripened cheeses and chocolate.

Light bodied stout, dark rich color, small head. Hints of hops and malt in the aroma. Rich smooth chocolate flavor on first taste, mellowing off to a light coffee flavor on the finish. Great beer, would buy again.

Poured from the bottle a deep brown/black with a beautiful tan head. Not much aroma, but a bit of chocolate and raisins. Malty and rich, balanced with distant hops. This beer has a silky mouthfeel. A delight to drink.

Superb. Very much a prototypical oatmeal stout. Smooth. Great malt flavors. Sweet, but not too much.

Deep black pour with a thick creamy white head. The nose is really lovely. Nice oaty aroma with a deep rich chocolatey base. Has a really complex and lovely base. Toasted grain, milk chocolate, softly herbal and a little bit of umami. Unctuous and rich. Really delicious.

Dark pour. Nice head. Smooth going down. Not a ton of chocolate taste but a great tasting stout.
