UPDATED: JUL 2, 2007 Jet black with a creamy, light brown head. Lots of used coffee grounds in both the nose and flavor. Also notes of bitter-sweet chocolate and tawny port. Lightly sweet at first, but then balanced out by the burnt, roasted flavors. Medium-bodied with a thin, watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Textbook oatmeal stout. Quality beer! Thanks to robertsreality for the growler! daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2009
JW77 with another great beer he brought to Cigar City. This one was really delicious. Almost a black pour with a rich tan head. Chocolate, coffee and some light molasses on the nose. Flavor is roasted and very smooth(oatmeal)...creamy as hell. Chocolate and coffee. Very good. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

Some pulls from my wife’s two pints at Town Hall. This one pours a dark brown with a finger of beige head that dissipates into a film and ring. Notes of roasted malts, chocolate, oats, cream, caramel, toasted nuts, vanilla, and toast. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Roasty, sweet, and right to style. arminjewell (9635) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Pours thick black with deep tan head, smell is roasted malt with coffee and chocolate. Taste upfront is coffee and bitter chocolate, really creamy mouth feel from the oatmeal, and ends nicely with smooth roasted/smoky malts. Excellent beer!

Tap. Pours opaque black with a small brown head and little lacing. Aroma is strong coffee and dark roasted malts. Flavor is about the same, with notes of vanilla and molasses. Medium sweet, lightly bitter on the finish, and a light citric astringence. Body is medium to full. Nice beer. PorterPounder (7961) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2004
Black Olive colored pour; mocha colored head with good lacing. Good sweet chocolately aroma. Has a bit too much lacticity for my taste. Good bittersweet chocolate notes make a presence but the mouthfeel is just a bit thin. Overall, not bad and would order a pint or two next time around.
