Canned (backlog). Deep brown, close to black colour with a beigeish brown head. Aroma is chocolate, some nutty notes as well as tobacco and liquorice. Flavour is very similar along with some nice burnt wet wooden notes as well as mild coffee too. DrnkMcDermott (3099) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Single can from Binny’s, Downers Grove. Frothy brown head over a brownish black body. Chocolate nose, but not quite as roasty, thanks to the oatmeal. I note the texture first, since it’s been carbonated, and that’s worth noting after so many stouts with nitro and widgets. But it’s also leaving some stickiness on my lip and has a hint of a tangy Guinness sour note, followed more of that chocolate roast. Then there is a slight note of vanilla once my palate has been brought into equilibrium. An enjoyable session beer to welcome back cold weather, though being in a full pint can may make it seem a bit less sessionable. Nephilium (1817) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2015
Roasted aroma, with a hint of milk chocolate. Pours an opaque black with a full tan head. Slightly sweet flavor, nicely balanced by roasted notes. Lighter in body then one would expect upon looking at it, with a full mouthfeel. Very nice and approachable stout. madelfonatree (317) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2015

Pint can. Opaque ebony with a lasting thin covering of foam. Nose is nearly charred grain, dusty grain, and old coffee. Tastes of semi-sweet chocolate, dark roast coffee, caramel, lightly tart berry and bitterish green herb. Near-medium body has a medium-high but mostly smooth carbonation. Nice balance and pretty drinkable.
