UPDATED: JAN 26, 2016 On tap poured into a shaker. The aroma is fresh baked oatmeal, raisin, and chocolate chip cookies. It pours an opaque black brown with an espresso colored head. The head reduces to a medium thick, creamy ring with an okay surface dusting, and has a runny sheet lace. The taste is medium light bitter and medium sweet. There’s lots of small bubble, prickly carbonation in this slick, medium-full bodied beer. The finish is mostly chocolate with some oatmeal raisin cookie. The aftertaste has moderate staying power with notes of roasted grains. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 2, 2014

Aroma is chocolate but not picking much else up. Appearance is dark brown almost black with a small light tan head. Taste reminds me of a Guiness but much sweeter and more flavorful. Palate is a bit thin but ok. Overall pretty good.

Keg @ Beer Run. Deep brown with a tight creamy head. The nose is strong oatmeal. Deep, earthy roasted malts. Cocoa. The taste is quite sweet. Chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. A bit of cinnamon and vanilla. Slightly spicy in the dry finish. Light, effervescent body. OK. Boutip (6627) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle: Poured a black color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of rich roasted malt notes with a side of black chocolates. Taste is also dominated by some roasted malt with a side of black chocolate. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Not the most complex beer but well enjoyable with good balance between the flavours and good drinkability.
