look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Bought a single for $1.99. No bottled on date, despite the label promising one.

A: Dark brown, cola-like color. Some scattered lace, leaves a thin wisp of foam.

S: Espresso, chocolate, almost smoky aromas are what this beer's aroma is all about.

T: The taste is mostly all coffee, probably the most coffee-like beer I've tasted without having actual coffee in it. A mild milk chocolate and grape flavor comes out at the end, especially warmed up. The hops add some moderate bitterness, but this beer is about the roasted malts.

M/D: Creamy & velvety, oatmeal stouts almost always excel at mouthfeel. A great beer to drink by itself or with dessert.

Enjoyed in a nice imperial pint, poured dark with a light, tan head. Dark, rich appearance, almost ebony. The nose is pleasant: coffee with chocolate undertones. The mouthfeel is good, but one of the weaker aspects; smooth start and finish, but a bit to sharp in between. Excellent flavor, true stout, and certainly straightforward. Overall a very good beer with little lacking, but not exceptional.

Received a bottle of this from my friend Mr. Doyle's beer of the month shipment.
This poured a dissapointing head. It is dark brown in color and somewhat opaque. Smell is primarily coffee grounds. Now the tasting...now we are getting somewhere. The taste is of coffee and chocolate. Nice hop finish to cap a great taste. Mouthfeel is blissfully creamy and smooth. Has a somewhat high ABV for the style but it is not too much which makes this beer an extremely drinkable one. Unfortunately I do not have any more. Guess I'll have to find Otter Creek when Da Boss and I are in Vermont in October!
