appearance nice beer with a thick tan head. Smell of oatmeal of course. And taste of oatmeal. Mouthful. of oatmeal and liquor that just begs to be drank more and more rising the drinkabilty to a higher standard. This beer is worth trying. A great oatmeal stout for stout lovers. Quoth the raven nevermore

You know a brew is special to me when I pour it into my vintage 8 oz glass with the raised painted owls on it. And it certainly is! This is the darkest chocolate coffee stout that I've had yet. Throw in some rolled oats and you've got a new favorite fourth meal! It's a double-barrelled swarzbier, a stout that I can imagine three guys man-handling the Keebler elf and his latest bacth of chocolate chip cookies into the wort mixer and stirring until the foam rises to the top leaving a creamsicle circle about the rim of the vat.

Poet-wise, being that is its namesake, it is Etheridge Knight: black, brunt and over-the-top sans the profanity and emotional irascibility. It's not quite as severe as joining the black panthers but there is a portent to extreme things waiting inside this bottle. Just don't drink it at the local coffee house or you might be pre-disposed to wrangle with some old man-haired poetess who reaches the divine muse via Granny Clampett and the fat man sitting in the corner perspiring poetry with a cheshire grin on his face always exclaiming with contained joy, "Mmmmm. Mmmmm. Mmmmm. Yes. Mmmmm."

I can not find anything wrong with this beer. A perfectly balanced, rich, smooth stout. Not too overpowering of a flavor, very smooth and easy drinking, while still having LOTS of very good, delicous roasty malty flavor. The bitterness that is there fits in with the roasty flavor very well, it does not seem very hoppy, more toasty/burnt, but very, very tasty. I can not reccomend this beer highly enough.

I especially love the label art. It fits the flavor of the beer perfectly. It makes me want to sit outside on a summer night under a full moon and sip on a few of these, staring at the moon and contemplating my place in the cosmos...
