Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 Beers this beer poured a black color with a large foamy brown head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was toasty malts, cocoa, a bit of marshmallow and was a touch dusty. The flavor was dryish and roasty with notes of wood, cocoa and a touch of vanilla. Medium length dryish roasty cocoa and vanilla finish. Moderately full bodied and creamy. Decent. djroehler (292) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Summit tap room tour. Pour was beautiful, best rolling cascade I’ve ever seen. Settles black with thick creamy mocha head. Aroma is rich roasted malt, oatmeal and coffee, vanilla and molasses. Taste is incredibly smooth and creamy, oatmeal and coffee upfront, vanilla, caramel, slight chocolate. It’s sweet throughout, but never overpowering.

Draft. Inky black pour, khaki head lasts forever. Aroma: roast coffee, chocolate, hints of caramel. Medium-full body, smooth creamy texture, soft carbonation. Taste follows nose, smoothe and easy going down, slightly sweet with short, dry roasty finish. Overall: this is really quite nice.

On tap at Ike’s in Minneapolis Airport. Served in a 14 oz sleeve. Black with lots of tan nitrogen head here. Took a few minutes to settle down. A rather sweet stout with chocolate and coffee overtones. Very smooth and mild. Nice! falco242 (398) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 8, 2013
On tap at the brewery! Great foamy head and nice creamy aroma. Taste is a bit bland but smooth and malty. Overall a decent oatmeal.

Pours black with a tan creamy nitro head. Aroma, chocolate, some oats, vanilla, and roasted malts. Flavor, lots of oats, and sweet chocolate malt, roasted malts, an odd tangy flavor towards the end. But over all, pretty good. Nuffield (4202) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2013
This beer shares many of the same good qualities--but also some of the same weaknesses--of Guinness. You get the attractive appearance (rich head, clear line between head and body), though without the cascade effect (at least as far as I saw...it may have happened before the waiter got the glass to me.) Similarly, the flavors here are in the right direction but aren’t vivid or deep--it’s a beer that sits "in the background" of the drinking experience, with the foreground being anything else that is happening at the table. The mouthfeel here, too, is light and slippery: it feels good but only for a flash. Overall, this is nice, but that’s all. (cask at the Muddy Pig, St. Paul)
