Had this one at Oskar Blues in Lyons on 12/29/09.
This beer is a excellent stout. Had a good finger width of brown creamy head that reduced to faint wisps as the beer neared the end of the glass. Light aroma greeted the nose. The taste followed suit with the chocolate. Not too sweet but it wasn't dry either. A good roasted tone with chocolate left as aftertaste of the brew. Overall this brew was another great beer from Oskar Blues. (435 characters)

Actually, the serving type is a mini-keg. Oskar Blues doesn't fill growlers anymore and fill mini kegs instead.

A - Pours really black. First few glasses from the mini keg had a lot of head, but at the end of the keg there wasn't nearly as much at all.

S - mildly sweet. Chocolate and malty. Not very big but just enough. May improve while warming some.

T - Chocolaty. Not syrupy or too sweet. some roasty coffee.

M - Full mouthfeel and silky smooth. No alcohol burn. Not a huge after taste. Very pleasant.

D - Very drinkable! I enjoyed every drop from the mini keg. (582 characters)

On tap at the Liquids and Solids location yesterday afternoon. Poured a rich black color, with a medium brown head. Aromas of baker's chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. On the palate, medium bodied and lightly smoky, with coffee, roasted malt and chocolate. Enjoyable. (269 characters)

"That's a dark mysterious fucker," I giddily chortled towards the wife. Black with a nice cinnamon mocha crown.

Smells of day old grounds. Not super old balls, but not fresh either. Unfortunately, that's all that's here. Disappointing after the looks of her. We've all been here.

Stout meet acrid bitter roast. A union not meant to stand the test of time. A one trick pony that should have stayed in the barn.

Having arguably the best coffee stout in the world, Central Water Brewhouse, mostly readily available to me I am a difficult prick to impress when it comes to coffee beers. That, coupled with my general admiration of the bean itself, makes this a one and doner. (706 characters)

i believe it was 6.9 or 7.0

Apperance - black and opaque with a good head. a nice start.

Smell - burnt chocolate, not much else there, some malt, minor oats, some coffee

Taste - more oats, minor chocolate, malt, light tasting, more a summer than a winter for me

Mouthfeel - good body, creamy as possible.

i like the name and its not too shabby. a middle class for a great brewery or a great brew for a shabby brewery (421 characters)

On-tap at Oskar Blues on 3/19/09

I'd say it's more of a dry Irish stout than an American.

A: Pitch black with a one-finger creamy head. Good sustain, but not much lacing.

S: Very little. Light chocolate aroma.

T: Nearly non-existent. A slight roasted flavor on first sip, and barely anything else after that.

M: Light-medium bodied with a typical nitro creaminess. A bit of bubbly carbonation as well.

D: Nothing about this beer was offensive, but there was absolutely nothing about it that made me want to take another sip. I gave serious consideration to abandoning the pint before I was even half way through. (618 characters)
