Thanks to Wil for this one! Love the nostalgic name.
Creamy smooth from the oats, mellow roast malt aftertaste. A compact layer of stained parchment foam that settles briefly, leaving behind a thin broken skim and spotty lacing. Flavors of carob and unsweetened milk chocolate, dark roast coffee. Slight lingering bitterness. Light toasted bready malt aroma. Flavorful but mellow and sessionable at the same time.

3.51/5 rDev -7.9%
A - pours nearly black with a nice finger of thick mocha colored head. Retention is so so, only a thin outer ring remains after two minutes, lacing isn't sticking much at all.
S - rosary malts, Smokeyness and a rich underlying cocoa nib aroma.
T - lots of smokey rosary malts up front with sweet chocolate kicking in a but through the finish. Toasty smoke is the dominant flavor throughout (aftertaste as well).
M - perhaps a bit too much carbonation, not quite as thick and silky as I'd like.
O - not bad at all but Smokeyness and carbonationay be a bit strong. Not really getting any oat flavors

A - Dark brown, close to black. Small tan head leaves fast. Some very spotty cling lace.
S - Coffee, burnt malt.
T - Taste is similar to the smell, but more complex. More sweet malt, a little cocoa, the coffee is less pronounced. Still very similar.
M - A little harsh on the tip of the tongue, fair balance, good carb.
D - One and done for me. Good to try.

A: Pours an opaque almost jet black in color with some light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and very dark amber and ruby red highlights. The beer has a finger tall dark tan head that quickly reduces to an extremely thin film that covers the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of roasted malts along with some very light notes of chocolate and tobacco. Just a touch of caramel.
T: Similar to the smell, there is a light to moderate amount of roasted malts without any hints of being burnt. There are light amounts of caramel, bittersweet chocolate, and coffee. Light amounts of bitterness in the finish which lingers for a short amount of time.
M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with slightly more than moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin for the style and very light amounts of dryness in the finish.
O: The beer is a decent American Porter from a brewery that has to date impressed me but I really wish it had a more roasted, bordering on burnt malt flavor and aroma. Easy to drink but nothing exceptional.

Pours a mahogany tinged brown with a finger of cream colored head. Good lacing & head retention
S: Coffee & chocolate
T: Follows the nose, plenty of charred grain too up front, just a touch of steel too. More roasty notes as this warms, just a bit of figgyness, some carob & chocolate. Finishes dry, roasty, slighlty fruity with a touch of chocolate covered raisin
MF: Fairly creamy, medium bodied
A nice American Porter, holds its own with some of the better porters out there. Drinks easy enough
