Jow (3899) - New York, USA - MAY 28, 2017
Draft at stagshead. Haven’t had a stout in awhile I feel. Nice rich blackish brown pour. Nose is coffee and light char. Tastes of rich coffee, light roasted malt, hint of chocolate, root beer, soft red fruit. Not to sweet hint of chalk on palate. Pretty nice.

rxeight (3046) - Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2016
22oz. Nose is bitter chocolate and coffee. Taste is coffee forward, mocha chocolate. Slight touch of orange chocolate at the end. This was surprisingly good considering I haven’t had a good beer from SOB before.

Fantastic brew. Poured from draft at Trellis. Massive cocoa and milky nose. Black with very fluffy brown head. Massive chocolate flavor with a good coffee taste at the end. Marshmallow and milky. Delicious like a milkshake.

napdynmite (91) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2014
Delicious with strong coffee flavor. Sweeter than bitter but enough edge to hit the throat just right. This is up there with the best coffee stouts and is a big step in the right direction for Solemn Oath.

4.1
troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2014
[Tap] Draught at the taproom. Jet black in color. Compact but dense brown head. Heavy coffee and mocha aroma. Taste is of bitter chocolate, blood orange notes, roasted/charred malts and light wooden notes. Oily and coating mouthfeel. Dry, and not as sweet as expected. (That’s a good thing.) Another high quality brew from these guys.

Black with good, creamy, chocolate shake head, wet light lacing / Rich nose of cigar box, roast coffee, citrus, dark fruit / Medium to full body, creamy, acidic, moderately sweet, good fruit and lightly inky, lots of bitterness but excellent balance / Flavors of prune, licorice, molasses, dark roast coffee, grapefruit, semisweet chocolate, grass, lemon / A superb sweet stout.

GI Stout Fest. Pours a dark brown with a light brown head. Big roasted coffee/espresso aroma. Some orange/citrus and dark chocolate. Taste follows the aroma, bitter black coffee is balanced by sweet citrus orange. Dry-ish finish. Medium light body. Very easy drinking.
