Dark black, no head. Bitter like cocoa nibs. Creamy. Fairly flat. Dark roasted. Good, not great. Needs something more. Thx andrewje41 mcberko (18557) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2016
On tap at Old Schoolhouse, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out medium roasted malt upfront, with a touch of coffee. Flavour is medium bodied, with roasted malt upfront, a touch of coffee and dry cocoa. Lots of body for a non-imperial stout. Very nice stuff. nealblind (1965) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JAN 14, 2016
dark brown pour slight orange brown head. Smells like chocolate oatmeal cookies. Tastes chocolate char bittersweet. slight oatiness on finish Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Pours an almost black color with a sugary malt and coffee aroma. Taste is similar, with a roasted malt and sweet caramel flavor. An easy drinking minute oatmeal flavored beer for the style. Oakes (18517) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2015
Sweet, bitter, molasses, chewy and full-bodied, and there’s a rich malty, complexity.

Pours a deep black with a creamy mocha head. Smaller than I would expect, but leaves decent lacing as it disappears down my gullet.
The aroma hits as soon as you pop the lid: creamy sweet chocolate. Roasty and smoothe. Really inviting.
Starts off with a smoothe incline of roast bordering-on-but-never-quite-reaching char. Hints towards acrid coffee, but with all the harsh acidity stripped, so you there’s no sharp bite to it, just the backing flavour. Moves into layers of sweet chocolate and molasses, but there’s an almost green bitter hint riding around the top edge. Finish is more of a burnt bitter than the one noted above, with a creamy sweet touch underneath.
Really tasty stout. Nothing that hasn’t been done, but done absolutely well. Grabbed it almost on a whim in honour of the pounding that region had taken in recent weeks (fires and floods, etc), and glad I did from a tasty-beer-standpoint as well. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a moderate dark tan head on there. Nose is quite roasty, and has some nice oatmeal coming through on it. Taste is actually a little more bitter than I would have anticipated, but I can get some oats as well as a whole lot of roasting. Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2014
