Oh, Barney Flats, he was a good man....oh wait, that's Barney Fife, anyways on to the beer. Pours out into a nice black stout with cappucino colored head standing about 1/4" thick. Roasted malts and chocolate dominate, but I also pick up scents of the oatmeal and coffee. Pick up scents? What am I a trail man? Concentrate, dang me. Nice, smooth, and boy there are some hops to be tasted at the end. Initially, the caramel and chocolate malts are all I taste but as the brew works back, the coffee undertones chime in nicely, and then, out of nowhere a little hop bite at the end. A good combination. A smooth beer, not outstanding, but good. The sweet chocolate, creamy feeling comes crawling in after a feel sips, now I am hell bent on Dairy Queen. Ah, beer and ice cream, I wish there was a planet of thee just for me.
