The beer poured a dark brown to black with a full tan head. I immediately got notes of chocolate syrup on the nose along with coffee and sweet malts to round it out. The taste was right along with the nose but with a more roasty profile along with the chocolate and sweet malt notes. The coffee flavors were more subdued in the taste and I only got a hint of the maple syrup, but more in the sweet tone it gave the beer rather than a syrupy pancake bomb. This is a brew you definitely want to allow to warm up a bit as all the flavors really begin to shine. The beer was a creamy and silky smooth which made for a rich and deep drinking experience. Definitely seek the Armadillo Ale Works beers when in Dallas

Something must be wrong this one poured with no head at all, but it was still a great beer. After it warmed up for a couple minutes the aroma is fantastic with butter toffee and caramel, smells exactly like Buc-ees Nug-ees the caramel ones, amazing! Taste is sweet with malt and dark caramel flavors.

Pours pitch black with a tan foamy head, smells malty with slight coffee and chocolate, tastes of heavy malts chocolate and slight on chocolate with a clean finish and silky chewy mouthfeel. Great beer

Pours a very dark brown with khaki colored head, thin viscosity for an imperial stout. Chocolate and roasted malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some sweetness.

This sleek, black brew is crowned with a respectable tan head that clears out in its own time. Has a soft, fresh-baked bread and sugar aroma. Tastes of dark bread, cereal grain, milk chocolate, wood, a pinch of cinnamon, a shot of dark fruits and we're off to the races! Medium-bodied and smooth with some rough edges scattered at the end. Armadillo got this one right in all respects, and I will be seeking more.

big thanks to Bigbear968 for this excellent extra. enjoyed from my e snifter.

a - brew pours a watery brown that settles in the glass almost black with a nice off white cap that dissolved leaving a ring on the surface. spotty slippery lace.

s - nose is surprisingly char for a stout and not a porter. crisp roasted bakers chocolate.

t/m/o - wow, what a silky brew. taste is really nice roasted chocolate. the feel really compliments the flavor to give it a full lush vibe but still be fairly light. abv is invisible...super drinkable. very enjoyable. like a milk chocolate stout.

A: Dark brown almost pitch black with a small tan head.

S: Ahhh this smells good. Maple syrup, raisins, chocolate, burnt bread.

T: Similar: Maple syrup, oatmeal, raisins, chocolate, rye bread (as stated by another reviewer), burnt toast, and big marshmallow. I love the marshmallow note that this beer has.

M: Heavy side of medium. Kinda velvety. Nice feel.

O: Awesome awesome beer. The price tag makes it even better. It has that perfect balance of oats, syrup, malt, and chocolate. I am satisfied!

Poured from a growler into a snifter.

A: Very dark brown. Pours a slight, brown-white head. Dissipates quickly leaving merely a ring around the surface. Spotty but persistent lacing.

S: Very light nose consisting of roasted espresso, and charred malt.

T: Rye bread, and a little licorice with a little peat.

M: Lighter in the body than expected. Very grainy. Pungent dry finish. Kind of an earthi-ness lingers on the palate.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is okay. Slight head, and spotty lacing. Nose is very light but characteristic of the style. Pungent earthy flavor with a grainy texture with a little bit of bitter finish. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.

Rated their blond....can never judge a brewery by just one beer... so I went out if my way to try another. It was fantastic. This oatmeal stout, honestly is one if the best I have ever had. There was a butteriness that was incredible. The diacetyl really worked to the advantage of the beer. It reminded me of the southern tier creme brulee almost, but without the terrible aftertaste, and was more toned down. The finish was very clean, with a nice bitterness and had me wanting more. Very nice chocolate notes, vanilla, almost barrel aged... 9.8% was nowhere to be found, but does begin to creep in as it warms.
