Strong, smoky aroma has notes of quality coffee, licorice and semi-sweet chocolate. Pours a dark chocolate brown that lets in a little light just at the edges and has a thick and fairly persistent tan head. Smoky flavor has coffee, licorice and chocolate notes with hints of caramel, woody hops and molasses. Body seems a bit thin for a stout, and fizz leaves something to be desired - but the texture is this beer’s only real weak point.

Darker than coal miner's lungs with a thin white head into my glass. A-yup. No offense to actual coal miners.

Creamy with lots of roasted malt and a touch of cocoa. Seems about right to me. Wonder what it'll taste like.

Cocoa powder explodes upfront, leaving a chalky residue in the mouth. At least the roasted malt doesn't overpower.

Mouthfeel is slick but not enough to impress. Chalky cocoa powder dominates the rest.

I have to agree with the previous reviewer on the chalkiness. I can tell. This isn't the greatest example out there (I think Wolaver's Oatmeal Stout is the bees knees but that's just me) but it's also not as overproduced as Ass Kisser's other offerings.

Speaking of such, I couldn't think of a worse name for a brewery.

A: This poured a nearly opaque black ruby with a little light tan head.
S: It smelled like strong copper hops and bitter dark chocolate, with some dark roasted coffee and soy.
T: It tasted like bitter dark chocolate, with some dark roasted coffee and copper hops. It had a clean and bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Light body.
D: This was a mediocre stout to be generous. The looks and scent and taste and body were all at or below average for the style. The finish was smooth, and the flavor was really light, so it was super easy to drink. But that's a really small silver lining to an otherwise unimpressive beer. I doubt it would age well either. Not recommended.

Clear dark brown colored ale with a small tan colored head.

Chocolate and patent malt. Toasted bread and coffee with a little caramel.

Starts out sweet with a little chocolate and more coffee. Slight milky flavor abundant Lactose. That's about it, not super complex.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall an average beer on the sweet side for the style.

I poured this big looking beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer poured very black with a serious giant tan head. Very impressive and I was hopeful. The smell was of roasted nuts. The beer had great lacing. However it was strange tasting with a bitter finish yet a too sweet beginning. Very conflicting brew. I will not buy it again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A-Dark pour with a thin, beige head that retains poorly and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass.

S-Bitter dark chocolate, milk sugars and coffee

T-bitter chocolate again, hops, coffee and dry wheat

MF-Medium bodied, light with a dry finish.

O-Looks good, but the taste and smell are just flat. Too bitter and not well-balanced. It's light and drinkable for a stout, but that's not what I want when I seek a stout out.

22oz bottle poured into my Great Lakes glass. Dark brown color with a frothy tan head filling the top inch of the glass. It's definitely light and thin looking for the style.

Aroma shows roasted malts, caramel and some milky chocolate. It's got a little more of a nutty quality to it reminding me a little of a brown ale.

Taste shows more of a roasted, slightly burnt flavor to it. The finish is dry with some roasted coffee notes. It's definitely got some of the nutty, milk chocolate flavors to it up front as well.

The mouthfeel feels very thin and watery for an oatmeal stout. Carbonation is moderate. Overall, a decent beer but not an outstanding one in the style. I thought it was more like a brown ale in a lot of aspects. Not nearly enough of the chocolate or oats coming through for what the label says.
