Courtesy aspidites. Black, dark brown edges. 1.5cm of dense, light brown foam. Very nice nose- roasty malt, creamy dark chocolate, coffee, and a light dose of bitter hops. Similar flavor with a little less impact. Medium body, smooth with just enough carbonation. Very good oatmeal stout. 1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Thanks Alan. The beer pours to a black body with a thin tan head. The aroma is really nice. Chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal, sweetened condensed milk, black patent. The flavor is an oatmeal cookie/brownie, seems like toasted coconut, hazelnut or almond, and chocolate. Tangy, dry, medium bodied. willblake (2664) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUN 2, 2007
20060922 Bottle shared by Frumptylicious at Dickinsonbeer’s O-Fest. Here’s another brewery I’d never even heard of before having a chance to sample their beer. Good stuff with a decent balance of roast and sweet flavors and aromas. Somewhat thin and hints of DMS but overall drinkable and nice. yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2007
(Sampler at the brewpub) Pours solid black with no real head. The aroma is of dark black malt and perhaps licorice. It’s thick and pretty smooth. The bitterness in the flavor approaches mocha. Great stuff. scanman (150) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Pours a dark black/brown with brown/tan head. Initial flavors of brandy, malts, chocolate, coffee and coal. Not bad, but very intense for an oatmeal stout. Not very creamy or fruity like other "sweet" stouts. Recommended with reservations.

Thanks to Ryan for bringing this to my oktoberfest party. Similar to the devout stout, but has a bit more body, sweeter, and fuller mouthfeel. Nice orasted barley character, some chocolate, and a dry almond-like finish. Pretty smooth and has a slight slick sweetness in the end. MullMan (1099) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 11, 2006

GABF 2006: Cear dark brown color with a beige head. Sweet coffee notes with a nice smooth roast make up the aroma. Matching coffe and roasted malt flavor. Not bad. Light to medium bodied Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Pour is cola like, brownish black with no head...roasty chocolate aroma...lost a lot of the chocolate flavor between the nose and mouth...slightly sweet and roasty but no real coffee flavor either...thin bodied... AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 7, 2006
Very smooth and silky, also very sweet. Good burnt/coffee flavors and aroma. Decent.
