COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Extremely complex malt and oat flavor; sweet with nice chocolate and roast overtones. The addition of a healthy amount of brewers oats is detectable with a smooth, silky finish. This moderately hopped ale is a great choice for the majority of our dark beer lovers.

shigadeyo (3646) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Roasted malt aroma, dark brown color, chocolate and roasted makts in the flavor, not bitter or overly roasty at all, soft and smooth mouthfeel, perhaps a touch thin... good overall, but not great.

A very basic sweet stout with an emphasis on the stout, not the sweet. Looked for a bit more smoothness and sugar, but this beer unfortunately has neither.
