On tap at brewery. Dark brown with almost no head. Faint malty aroma. Roasty oat cereal taste with a mild coffee finish. rayOfBeer (674) - El Cerrito, California, USA - JUL 15, 2008
Poured from tap at Marin Brew Breast Fest an inky black with large mocha head. Aroma is sweet roasted grain. Flavor is chocolate, caramel, coffee - all mildly sweetened - and finishes with a grain roast. The palate is not a big mouthfeel but is good and somewhat creamy. Light drinking for a stout. I really liked this one. I definitely want to try it again. illidurit (2340) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 29, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. 6 oz. sampler. Opaque brown with a light tan head of about a half finger’s height. The foam leaves no lacing on it’s way to becoming a thin halo. Smell is of bittersweet chocolate. Smooth oaty texture, black coffee and baker’s chocolate in the flavor. Roasty finish. SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Draught at the brewpub. Black with brown edges and a small tan head. Sweet coffee aroma with a tinge of hops. Sweet and roasty flavor with no roast harshness. Lots of silky chocolate. Oatmeal smoothness in the mouth is really nice. A solid sweet and smooth stout, and the modest strength makes it go down quite nicely. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Bomber - thanks Steve! Poured clear, deep brown with a short cap of tan head. The aroma picked up lightly-roasted sweeter chocolates, toasted oats, and buttermilk.. nice, but just a tad too buttery. The flavor was also buttery-sweet with milk chocolate, light lactic sourness, and herbal/earthy bitterness.. the back-end found some brown sugar and more lactic sourness.. sweet overall and well-composed. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation that moved the beer smoothly across the palate..
