Beer #19 Asheville trip. Poured black. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Flavor is a dead on match, rich, creamy, delicious. Hops balance with bitterness only. Very well made beer, one of the best on the trip I think.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 1, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Poured very dark with a medium-sized tan head. Aroma and flavor were roasted malt, chocolate, some coffee. Low bitterness, mildly sweet. Flavorful but not overpowering. A wonderful sessionable stout. Velvety mouthfeel.

Shag (3041) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Pitch black with a tan head. Aroma contains some chocolate, coffee, and cookie dough. The flavor is well balanced with coffee notes for the bitter and chocolate and oatmeal for the sweet. After is bitter. Overall excellent on this cold day.

Suttree (6484) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 26, 2008
On tap (nitro) at the brewery. Looks great, of course, black with rich creamy brown head. Nice roasty aroma, oatmeal and coffee with a touch of cocoa. Very smooth, but full bodied throughout, unlike a lot of nitro beers. pleasent coffee and chcolates throughout. Tasty and enjoyable on a snowy Friday afternoon.

jbruner (5124) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Pours an opaque black on tap with fluffy tan head and good lacing on the way down. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate. Taste follows with a smooth mouth from the oats and a creamy finish. Fantastically done and easy to drink. Wedge has something going here, they need to distribute.

bubbleflubber (2235) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2013
On tap at The Wedge, this pours a deep black with a huge creamy tan head that leaves thick lacing. The nose is of deep chocolates and light roasts. Flavors are of deep roasted dark chocolate, and finishes with a milk chocolate creaminess. The nitro pour makes for a full, smooth, creamy body. Great oatmeal stout! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nitro poured pint at the brewery. This is a fairly black beer with an even, creamy tan head. The aroma sports pronounced oatmeal and chocolate and is hearty and bittersweet. The silkiness imparted by the use of nitrogen suits the flavor quite well. With a mild roasted character, loads of palatable oat smoothness, and dark chocolate bitterness, this is highly quaffable. The finish is just dry enough, but remains semi sweet with a lingering chocolate note.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2009
Draught at the brewery. Pours amber black with small tan head. The aroma is roast, oats, a little bit of smoke, and some nuttiness. The flavor is creamy oatmeal, chocolate, and a bit of roasty sourness. Not bad.

Drake (14061) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Served on nitro at Barley’s in Asheville. Pours pitch black with a large brown head. Great head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, bitter hops and green apple. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, espresso and strong bitter hops. Very bitter finish. Full bodied. Damn good.

timsilvia32 (449) - from Michigan now in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 15, 2009
Nice appearing near black, brownish pour. Sizeable cream colored head. Nitro-like head though this was on a traditional tap. Aroma was roasted malt and oatmeal with hints of chocolate. Very creamy medium body. Taste was a great balance of chocolate, roast malt. Slight coffee finish. One of the best oatmeal stouts I’ve had in a long time, everyone has gone to much more aggressive style stouts. A drinkable, flavorful session stout. The best beer I had all weekend, better than the Foothills Peoples Porter, which was still pretty good.
