1/14/13 Bottle Four Firkins SLP, MN. Pours jet black with disappating tan head, very little lacing. Aroma is oats and slight raw cocoa. Taste is grain roasted malt bitter cocoa aftertaste. Very palatable and it hides the 8% well. Very smooth and drinkable, not the best choco stout I’ve had but pretty darn good.

Near black with a tan head. Sweet chocolate, malty nutty aroma. Medium sweetness to accompany the smooth creamy texture. Medium towards heavy bodied. Delicious.

Served at a good temperature with a nice, tan, foamy, thick, fine head that settles and a little lace. Color is an opaque black brown. Aroma is malt, roast, cocoa, trace vanilla, coffee, walnuts. Flavor’s similar to nose with very good balance betwixt the sweet, tart, and bitter. Body and carboantion are very good for style. Finish is like flavor with vanilla and a little booze coming forward. Deceptively easy drinking beer. Great for chilly willys. And I like it too!

Smokey, full-bodied and nutty. The perfect winter beer to warm up to, I think...........

A very nice chocolate oatmeal stout. Doesn’t have the body or complexity of Victory Storm King or Founders Imperial Stouts. No surprise there. Very drinkable and a superior example of the "Chocolate Oatmeal Stout" breed. Lesser brews should be considered "Nevermore".
