UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 Props to Hellbilly for sending this one my way! This is a really good one, just below what Id consider the upper echelon of sweet stouts. Smells better than breakfast, rich coffee and oatmeal, some maple syrup and sausage...mmmm. Ok, maybe the last one was just my imagination! Pours very dark. Body is a tad on the watery side, no real lacing. Flavor is very good, lots of coffee and oats with a candy finish. Notes of roasted barley and chocolate and syrup. Very creamy on the palate. Very nice! Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 4, 2008
12 oz bottle. Poured into a pint glass with an oily black color and small tan head. Nose of roasted malts and mild nuts. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. Wow this stuff is light. Initial taste is vinous, soy sauce, mollasses and roasted malts become apparent. Mid palate of red fruits and mild cocoa. Finishing roasted and mild hop balance. Palate duration is good despite the watery mouthfeel. Roasted malt leaves a good impression. Mildly dry. Good head retention. Too light for me but not bad.

Bottle from a generous friend in Phoenix!. Thanks Mojo! Pours an almost black color with nice tan head. Aroma of roasted malt with a hint of chocolate and coffee. Taste is slightly sweet and creamy from the oatmeal. Has a bit of hops in the finish. This is a nicely balanced sweet stout. Very drinkable and smooth.

Pours dark with brown head and some lacing. Notes of chocolate and a hint of coffee. Balanced taste that is smooth. Crispy34 (496) - Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Draft. Aroma is dark malt with some yeasty sweetness. Appearance is black with a creamy head. Taste is sweet then got to the dark malt, but not too dry, surprisingly. Palate is pretty neutral. Overall, a decent stout. Would buy again.

Poured from a bottle, dark, with a good tan creamy head. Aroma is immediate with the oatmeal and roasted coffee beans. Taste is light than some others in this style, but still good flavors: dark chocolate, roasted coffee. A little bitterness at the end. Decent beer.

From bottle thanks to Immy. Pours black with thick coffee head that dissipates quickly. Nice lacing. Nose is slightly acrid, with chocolate and coffee. Flavor follows, a touch sour, with bitter in the finish. A little on the thin side. Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 14, 2007
The aroma was full of coffee, roast, smoke, and a hint of oatmeal. The beer poured an opaque color with thin lasting head and lacing. The flavor had coffee, roast, smoke, and light oatmeal notes. The roast was really prevelent. The mouthfeel was medium to full, a little thin for me, and decent carbonation. realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - DEC 17, 2006
12oz bottle poured black with a nice brown head. The aroma was rich with oats, chocolate and roast. The taste was slightly bitter at first then rounds out with a big palate. Overall a nice rich oatmeal stout more than a sweet stout. wildbeercat (359) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 30, 2013
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a Guinness glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Dark roast, Some bittersweet chocolate. Pretty mild aroma.
Appearance: Opaque dark brown body, sparse dark tan head. Nice lacing.
Taste: Pretty mild. Not bad, but mild. Roasty. Straightforward.
Palate: Full bodied. Moderate finish. Kind of creamy, but not as creamy as Murphy’s. Better body than Guinness.
Overall: Pretty good stout. Nothing really jumps out at me, but it’s a pretty good stout.
