UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 Pours black with big off-white head, mostly lasting. Aroma is chocolate, then chocolate and then some chocolate. Flavor is mostly dark chocolate. No detectable hops. Watery texture. Light bodied.

pours black with white diminishing head. aroma is almost not there but it does have hints of chocolate. Flavor is a watery for a stout but it does have a nice bitter chocolate aftertaste. A beer to drink if you are graving chocolate but not much more.

A nice little goodie. Buy this little treat and try it if you haven’t. It sure is a special little guy. The aroma is of roasted chocolate, but its really not too extreme (which is a good thing). Smooth, cool, refreshing has a sassy attitude.

Bottle...Nearly opaque black pour with a frothy tan head. Malty aroma, not entirely roasted malt, however I do detect some roasted malt. I catch some floral hop aromas and some fruitiness. Interesting nose. Sugary sweet to start, crystal malt dominating. A hint of hops in the middle, and roasted chocolate malt. Chocolate flavors are there to finish, nice lingering bitterness to finish. Mouthfeel is a little thin, but all in all, a nice beer to enjoy.

Bought a 4-pack of bottles from New Beer Distributors (NYC). I agree with a previous review that the mouthfeel is a little thin. Has a slight bitter aftertaste. Stick with the Oatmeal Stout.

Draught at Tyler’s in Durham. Black color with thick off-white nitro head. Enticing chocolatey aroma and flavor with coffee hiding in the backround. Chocolate milkshake comes to mind, but it is only slightly sweet. Very smooth, like most nitrogenated beers. This is a very good stout, especially on tap.
