4.59/5  rDev +4.8%

A- pours with a pitch black color with nice brown head.

S- more chocolate than anything with some hints of vanilla at the end and some coffee.

T- taste matches the smell except taste more like dark chocolate with minor coffee and vanilla.

M- little more of a thicker feel to it which is nice for a stout some carbonation pretty smooth.

O- overall I think this is an excellent stout one of my new favorites love the can it comes in.

I've had this beer dozens of times and was shocked to see that I've never reviewed it.
12oz can with 9-24-12 and "Haulin' Oats" stamped on the bottom of the can. Pours a super viscous dark black color with an inch of dark brown head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, caramel, and hints of vanilla. The taste is chocolatey booze upfront followed by some roasted malts and more chocolate. Notes of coffee and earth. Hints of caramel. Bitter dark chocolate and malts at the end. Good amount of alcohol flavor throughout, but time has mellowed it a bit. Heavy mouthfeel. Overall, classic beer worth seeking out.

4.35/5  rDev -0.7%

Pitch black, with no highlights. Or lowlights. Just black. Deep black. There is, however, a hefty tan crown of foam, and thick, loopy lace once it clears. Gorgeous.

Nose is roasty dark chocolate, with an element of char in there. Mmm.

Taste is a deep, cavernous burnt chocolate/cocoa. I get a hint of some fruit and hops near the finish, but these are deep down, submerged in the murky darkness.

This is a superlative, delicious, and monstrous imperial stout. And it's from a can.

this is not beer this is sweet sweet orc blood.

pours like syrup, no head.
inky black

not a lot of smell but some malt, and schwartz beer esque smell

a little too sweet, i dont know if ive been drinking to much ipa, at first it seems sweeter than it needs to be, still complex and interesting with some cold press coffe notes. after it warms up it the flavor gets mellow and less sweet.

coats your tongue , heavy and sticky.
