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! ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2004

(druaght) Deep black with tan head. Aroma is faintly sweet oatmeal. Flavor is roast malt, slightly sweet, with some coffee and hints of chocolate. 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 (6900) - 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.

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. flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - APR 26, 2004
Opaque black color with a medium beige head. Sweet oatmeal, malt, chocolate and roasty aroma and flavors. Smooth, creamy feel. Very nice. flemdawg (563) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2004
Oatmeal domintates the aroma, but there are dark roasted chocolate, and some malts in there as well. Murky brown color with a very sparse tan head that was left over from a decent sized beginng. A very oaty taste up front, but that give way to a nice bitterness. Hints of cocoa in there as well. A rather dry finish that seems to linger a bit. Over all rather tasty.

Black opaque with light tan head. The aroma is lightly fruity with lots of roastiness & light smoke. The flavor is very nice with some light hop balance & lots of mocha, chocolate/coffee goodness. Finishes creamy & milky with a lingering roastyness. Thanks MarkR! Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2004
Ahh! Opaque brown. Smallish head and little lacing. Roast and coffee, light soy sauce and smoke. Smoky flavors. Roasted malts, more coffee tones and bitter hops. Body is on the thick side and a palate filled with smoke.
