[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]
The pour was a murky dark black with a small (less than 1 finger) foamy light brown head that diminished in a minute or so and had fair streaky lacing.
The aroma was very mild of a roasted cereal malt and a doughy leathery yeast with notes of chocolate, coffee and flaked oats.
The taste was lightly sweet and mildly malty with a hint of chocolate and a nice creamy oat taste from the start, with the finish being lightly bitter and mildly roasty with a bit of coffee at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time following the swallow, with a mild smooth coffee flavor that was left behind to linger for just a short while longer.
Mouthfeel was a just bit above medium in body with a smooth watery texture and a soft carbonation.
Overall this was a light thin Stout with a decent roasty taste and a good drinkability...

After drinking the IPA, I wasn't too excited about this one. Fortunately, this was a little bit better.
It was black in color with a small tan head. There were a few specks of lace.
Roasted malt aroma, not too strong. Some coffee and chocolate.
Strong coffee taste, some chocolate.

A- 22oz bottle purchased at Total Wine in Orlando. Pours a dark black color with a light tan head.
S- The aroma is roasted malt and sweet cocoa.
T- The taste like the aroma is dark roasted malts, milk chocolate and a touch of coffee as well. The taste is a little on the thin side.
M- The mouthfeel is between light and medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.
O- Overall, this is a pretty average porter that I probably wouldn't purchase again.

Pours black with a beige head. Good retention. Little lacing.
Coffee and aluminum aroma. Very strange.
Lots of coffee up front. That metal aftertaste hits like I've been licking a spoon. Very astringent finish and not much complexity.
Fairly light mouthfeel with carbonation levels that are too high for the style.
This one is a mess and all over the place. Flavors aren't very complex to begin with and there are flaws in the aftertaste and mouthfeel. One of the few bottles no one wanted to finish at the end of the night.

Bomber poured into an efes tulip. Low head and retention. Minimal lacing. Almost opaque in color. Aroma includes coffee, light chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is mildly creamy, coffee and roast malt dominate. Touch of sweetness. No alcohol noted, no off putting flavors, pleasing mouthfeel and an overall solid stout.

Pours a deep mahogany brown, not quite black but damn close. Even with an extremely hard pour there was only a handful of bubbles that formed. What little bubbles did exist stuck decently to the glass but hardly what I would call lacing.
Smell is odd, to say the least. Lots of dark fruits, almost sour but not quite. Very light acrid roast aroma mixed in with the fruits. The combination is not pleasant but not all together bad either.
Taste is better with less of the dark fruits and a little bit more chocolate. The roast isn't as bitter as the smell would make you think. It's actually not that bad by itself but that aroma sticks around and in this particular glass it is focused to my nose which just makes it worse and somewhat difficult to enjoy the good flavors.
Thinner body with light, but very much present, carbonation. I would like this to be a tad bit thicker as an oatmeal stout but it's not bad at all.
Overall, I might try this again down the road, it's a bit different but not really bad. As it is though, if I want an oatmeal stout I will probably go elsewhere.

Enjoyed at the brewpub on Sept. 8, 2010 after hitting the beach.
Appearance: A very black/brown body with zero head because of the way he poured it. Not cool IMO.
Smell: Cocoa with a charcoal & bitter aspect to it.
Taste: Oatmeal with less charcoal than in the aroma. Some hops in the background which was nice and a brief appearance of cocoa. The taste is good but it doesn't linger.
Mouthfeel: A bit thin actually and not as full bodied as a stout should be though it is still pleasant enough.
Drinkability: I might have this again but it's not one of my favorites.
Overall: A decent effort that didn't make a lasting impression on me. I would have preferred a more fuller body and for the taste to last just a bit longer. Still, i think it's worthy of checking out.

I two servings from the tap at the actual home office. It was certainly a good surprise. I loved the dark almost black color of the beer. The guy that poured me my cup went to great lengths not to pour a head. He did, just a little and it had a nice brown color that was pleasing to my eyes. The beer had a distinct odor of coffee and a very pleasing stout taste. Mouthfeel was average - almost too strong carbonation but not overpowering either.
Overall, I was very pleased over the choice (I coulda had something they called a "Von Braun"), good look and good taste - it's the reason I had two.

Dark black with creamy tan head that leaves great retention and foamy lace. The smell is roasty with burnt sugar edges, dark chocolate, coffee, and smoke. The taste is ashy. Too much black patent. Perhaps others enjoy this, but there is a charcoal, burnt taste that is a bit much for me. Smoky, bitter chocolate, and roasted coffee. Quite roasty and ashy tasting. Strong with alcohol peeking through. Overall an average stout.

Poured on-tap at the Cocoa Beach Brewery, the beer was served up in a pint glass. Pours a nice jet black with a thick ring of chocolate colored head. The beer has a thick, viscous appearance to it. Once it hits your mouth, you can't help but notice how surprisingly ligh and crisp it actually is, with a great smoothness to it. The brew also leaves a great lacing along the glass while you imbibe. The nose is heavy in coffee aromas, with a strong dose of smoke. Very inticing. The flavors are a very balanced blend of rich malt, dark chocolate, and coffee. The sweetness and bitterness play very well with each other. There is a hoppy and coffee bitter aftertaste, with a smooth, yet somehow dry, finish. Great beer!

Brought back from Fla. by a buddy's father. Shared among 4 friends.
Aroma had a pleasant roasty character initially. It moved to a duller and less specific aroma and at the end seemed to hold a stale oxidized quality.
Poured with excessive head that was tamed with time. Very black.
Strong roast flavor that held burnt and then acrid quality. Finish also held ash flavors. Not pleasant. Flavor, feel nor body seemed to contain any oat quality.
Excessive carbonation covered a very thin body.
Ultimately not an enjoyable experience. Three of four were barely able to finish the 4 to 5 oz pour. One noted it as acceptable.
