Aroma is roasted malts and some milk-like sweetness. The flavor is coffee, roasted malts, cocoa and has a milky consistency. Definitely better in a glass than out of the can, this was a very smooth stout. mcjay (463) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Pours dark with a foamy tan head. Mild roasted aroma. The body is actually rather rich and malty, not as dry as your usual oatmeal stout. The flavor has hints of coffee and vanilla. reggiedunlop (3725) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Pours black with a thick mocha head. Aroma is subdued but roasty with a bit of coffee and sweet chocolate. Flavor is more roasty and less sweet...a bit one dimesional...tastes a bit like a nitro irish stout. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a dry, roasty and slightly metallic finish.

Can from Pawola22 - thanks, Brian! Nice oily pour with a medium carbonation and some powerful stickiness. Huge nose of sweet roasted malts, molasses, and coffee slightly burnt. Mouthfeel somewhat slick, could be a hair fuller. Taste is quite rich, almost too sweet in places for me. Would like a greater accentuation of the roasted elements and a heftier oatmeal component to dry this out a bit. CanIHave4Beers (4194) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Pours black with a medium light brown head that sticks to the side of the glass and leaves a nice lace.

The aroma is very mild, very clean, & nicely roasty. There is a bit of the mocha coffee on chocolate thing going on. This beer smells nice, but it doesn’t smell of much, it could stand to be a little more pungent.
The flavor is fairly dry, roasty and bitter with a touch of that black patent "burnt" kind of flavor just in the back. There is a mild coffee flavor but this is much more centered around dark chocolate.
The light carbonation on this is nice, but the beer is a little bit thin, that mixed with the low carbonation give it a bit of a watery sensation.
This is perfectly enjoyable beer!
I sure didn’t find it to be very sweet, which is not a problem really.
On tap. Pours a dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of lactose, chocolate, and light roasted malt. Flavor is sweet, perhaps a touch medicinal too. Just ok, certainly has its flaws.

Rich smooth , sweet. Taste the chocolate notes in there.Not my favorite style of beer but this is certainly enjoyable. Wouldn’t pass up another one. DrnkMcDermott (3123) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2012
12 oz. can from build-a-six at Binny’s. Hey, nice smell right out of the can, hearty roast grains without the usual burn or astringency. Rich chocolate notes. Pours a solid black body, head is foamy since it’s still canned with CO2, but hey. Taste does offer creamy texture of an oatmeal stout. More dry than sweet. Some coffee bitterness once I get more tasted. Very slight citrus edge, perhaps some PNW hops in there. I note that the can currently reads 6% abv.

Not bad, but that’s the best compliment I can make. Very flat, more like flat soda than creamy beer. Nothing special about the taste; not strong, almost as if it’s a light beer. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2011
[Can] Pours a very dark shade of brown with virtually no head on it. Strange aroma is of dark malts, residual sugars, metal and hints of vanilla. The taste is distinctive of ’homebrew twang’. Tastes like stale malt extract, soured grains, light ash, metal and brown sugar. Very low carbonation levels make this one a bit flat. I didn’t care for this particular brew.
