Very deep brown color almost black with a brown tint. The head comes in at a thin nice mocha color.

Very heavy oat smell along with a toffee, coffee and dark chocolate a good mix but weighted towards the grain.

The taste is reminiscent of the smell, but with more complexity. The oat fades to more of a smoothness that intertwines with the light caramel and the heavier flavors of the dark chocolate and coffee.

This is one smooth tasty oatmeal stout. A real good sipper. If your ever in western Kansas (and I don't wish that on anyone) at least you can stop by Liquid Bread for some awesome beer.

Now this is more like it. I felt their IPA fell short of the style, but this one is really good. A good thick looking, but clean pour with off tan foam sitting atop the black liquid bread (nice, huh?)

Balance of the coffee, chocolate and dark fruit is great. None stand out, but all are present. Raisin and toffee come and go. Good dry smack to it to let in the malt. Dark chocolate. Easy drinking. This one can be dangerous.

My pint arrived an opaque, espresso black with some ruby hues along the meniscus which were only visible when held up to sunlight. Two finger tan head dissipated after a little while to a clingy ring. Decent lacing. Aromas of chocolate malts, coffee and some caramel sweetness. The flavors were downright delicious. Brown sugar, maple, coffee, charcoal (heavily roasted malt) and hints of black licorice. Slightly tart as it warms and the hosp provide some balance. Complex and developed like the girl you had a crush on in high school. Long finish. Full bodied without being heavy, smooth and generally well thought out. Great theory and equal execution. Bravo, nowhere Kansas!

my pint arrives black, with a tall beige foamy head. After quickly receding, I am pleasantly surprised by the staying power of the final quarter inch of creamy cap.

Nose features coffee, but it is rather mild and not overly roasted. Chocolate follows in cocoa powder form, and there is a nice toffee background.

Flavor follows aroma but in amped up fashion. This is a rich brew. I'd like to session it but I generally feel pretty full after a couple. Body feels quite full, with a nice creaminess. Carbonation has been a little hit and miss - sometimes spot on, sometimes a bit prickly.
Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, delicious beer. In addition to the chocolate and toffee I get a hint of liquorice, balancing hop bitterness plus a bit of bitter char. In addition to the moderately bitter finale the finish is slightly sweet and dry.

as mentioned, it isn't quite as drinkable for me as I'd like. Then again, as I'm always on a road trip when coming here, I suppose that's a good thing. Very good beer, highly recommended.

Pours coal black with a dark brown fine creamy 3 finger head. Aroma of caramel, coffee and chocolate malts. Flavors follow with a medium full mouthfeel and excellent complexity suggesting a Kalamazoo Stout! Perfect finish with lingering malts and well bounced hop bitterness. A absolute session beer!
