Chocolate-brown body with a resilient chocolate head. A nice deep, roasty aroma with a roasted coffee body and a dry finish.

A great Oatmeal stout with a fantastic flavor. Smooth rich malt flavor with a hint of smokiness that made this a beer to drink on a cold winter night. Pssst. Can I have another?

Draft at the brewery. I thought this was pretty good. Great aroamas of chocolate. The flavor fell off a bit, but it looked really good with a super dark pour and a decent dark brown head. Decent hop finish. Pretty tasty.

Looks like a stout. Dark with good tan head. Very subded aroma. Mouth feel was also a little weak. Not bad.

Portlandrunk and I shared the same pitcher, so you may have to take this with a grain of salt...but there was most definitely a serious vinegar thing going on here. Vinegar, molasses, and diesel - very thin and a terrible, terrible combonation. Let's not jump to conclusions though, this may be good most of the time, but for now all I could think of was the 'Rattlesnake' bite - venomy.

Didn't like this at all. Why does this stout taste and smell like vinegar? Too thin and uncomplex. What went wrong here?

Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2002
Very smooth, kinda syrup like, very thick. Notes of coffee, nut, caramel. Bitter finish.

3.7
Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2002
This was a decent stout, I enjoyed the chocolate, and coffee, flavor on the palate, It was thick and dark. A tad too carbonated for my taste, and probably could still be somewhat complex.
