Bomber from the local. Pours a deep black, no light getting through this guy. Big foamy coffee colored head eventually recedes leaving gobs of thick lacing. Chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts attack my olfactory system as I wait for this guy to settle. Bold bitter chocolate flavor backed up by an earthyness and roasted malts. A slight bitter tang and notes of coffee at the finish. Quite tasty, not too in your face intense...nice mild mannered stout.

Fruity aroma. Toasty coffee chocolate flavor. Creamy body well balanced by a nice hop bitterness. Delicious beer.

On tap at the Saucer. Deep dark brown with light tan head. Aroma is slightly floral and citrusy which is unusual for a stout. Tastes of chocolate, light coffee, and grapefruit. Must have used American hops for this one. Like a light version of an Imperial Stout. Different and interesting.

Thin head, coffee flavors, kind of weak boquet for a stout. More of a bitter stout rather than cream. Wonderfull opaque color, almost black. Looks like Sheaf's Stout, tastes much better. Not my favorite stout, but a good brew on the whole. I've always like my stouts a good deal lower than room temperature, so that may make my opnions a bit less relevant than most stout drinkers. All in all tho, great label design, a drinkable beer. Hard to calsssify this one, not a 'beginner's stout' but I can't see hardcore stout drinkers not looking for more either.

flylikeabanana (179) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2013
On tap at Pete's. A black pour with a frothy, retentive light brown head. Good lacing. Aromas of sugary malt and coffee. Taste is oatmeal, espresso, and a semisweet chocolate finish. A well balanced, albeit bitter stout.

An excellent oatmeal stout, well balanced with a good combination of hops and malt. Pleasing in appearance and pours with a well defined head.

bottle 9/27/05. Pours a very thin brown head and a chocolate black color. Smoked malt nose and flavor with a very smooth finish. Fairly full bodied. Roast taste and smell. Excellent brew.

All stout characteristics are in play. Nose and flavor have a distinctive hop bite (of the Cascade variety) to them that adds a nice finish to this brew. The creamy sweetness is nicely rounded off by the hops. This is a very enjoyable stout and if it is lacking in anything it is only in that is not an imperial or stronger version.
