Sample at the Taproom. Dark molasses color, a bit thin-looking. Big, creamy chocolate nose, with nice helpings of coffee and vanilla. Really interesting flavors, quite sweet and choco-caramelly with that swath of vanilla throughout; fabulous body, very thick but quite drinkable; bit lactic, sour and vinous at the finish. Somehow manages to be light, refreshing, deep and complex all at once; world-class sweet stout.

The oatmeal sweetness is quickly accompanied by caramel and a touch of hops. Of the brewers products that I tasted, this was my favorite pending the rest...

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2006 On tap at the Bottleworks brewpub. Dark brown with ruby highlights. This is a very mellow stout. Roasted flavor with a great hop tang. A very thick malt finish. Smooth oatmeal balance, but body is slightly on the weak side. Beer becomes sweeter as it warms. UPDATE 11/2006: Not as great as I once thought. Good roastd flavor and rich, but is lacking in the aroma category. Definitely drink this on tap, not in the bottle.

Bottle - big roasty aroma. Very nice! Dark brown with a quickly dissipating off-white head. Roast in the flavor as well with a biting bitterness. Smooth palate with just a touch of fizz. Another good one from Schlafly!

ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Prominent oatmeal aroma gets joined with coffee and roast. A large beige head sits on top. Not quite totally opaque, just a hint of light gets through this very dark brown stout. Velvetly smooth body backdropped against a moderatly bitter ale.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Bottle pours dark chocolate with ruby accents, small off-white frothish head that quickly dissipates, but with decent lacing.   Aroma is very light, mostly roasted malts.   Flavor is equally light, just hints of roasted malts and not much else.   Body & mouthfeel were both thin.   A very non offensive easy to drink Sweet Stout, but I need something with more character.   Thanks goes out to MarkR for the trade.

JCW (1278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2004
Black and opaque, no head. Aroma is mostly roasted, with some malt sweetness and a light dose of carmel. Flavor is slightly smokey but mostly sweet. Mouthfeel is watery and a little buttery. Finish is slighty dry and roasted.

Opaque black color with a medium beige head. Sweet oatmeal, malt, chocolate and roasty aroma and flavors. Smooth, creamy feel. Very nice.
