Love it, love it, love.

This beer tastes like hershey's special dark, maybe better. It has the nose of a cigar and a nice rich foam.

Until I met this beer, Hinterland's Winterland was my favorite dark chocolatey brew, now its this.

The orange color on the bottle is a little deceiving, cause its a nice dark chocolate brown.

I just wanna put one in the freezer in a paper bag for half an hour and see if I can make a slushy out of it.

Appearance - deep mahogany brown around the edges. A tan head, thin but sticky.

Aroma - strong roasted grain with accents of coffee grounds.

Taste - good roasted grain again, as it smells. A fine coffee flavor in there also. A brief touch of sweetness on the swallow and lots of roasty flavors on the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - smooth with a good body. Medium carbonation, in step with the style.

Drinkability - a fine session stout. Much thanks to brdc for this diamond in the rough acquired at DLD08.

Great beer. I had this beer as the people i was with wouldnt try it they are all busch light drinkers and nothing else. It was my first oatmeal stout and it was good. At the time I wasnt big into craft so i didnt pour into a pint glass. Oatmeal and nuts was the taste. i was addicted but havent had the beer since. Also willing to trade for some of this beer

New at this but I don't think words will be too difficult to come by after a couple of these.

A - Almost totally black. A mohogany color lines the bottom of the glass where just a tiny bit of light is able to peek through.

S - Roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee in the nose of this one.

T - Seems to change with every sip. Strong notes of espresso, dark chocolate, and roasted malts as evidenced in the smell are backed up by undertones of toffee and caramel.

M - A little thin for a stout for me. Medium carbonation.

O - A very sessionable stout that should probably be stocked up on as it is seasonal.

This beer pours an inky black color, with a thick brown head. The head fades slowly, leaving few laces.

This beer has a malty sweet aroma. It smells of dark chocolates. I also smell the burnt malts. A slight coffee aroma is present. Molasses is also noticable.

This beer tastes strongly of coffee. It has a sweet malty, dark chocolate flavor. It has a very slight smokey flavor, but only if you look for it. I think this beer tastes great.

This beer is a little thin for a stout. It goes down smooth, leaving a coffee like aftertaste. It is carbonated well for the style.

I think this beer would make a great session beer. It tastes great, and the alcohol content is not too high. I think that if I could get this beer more often, it might be one of my regulars.

Thank you thomashardy for this nice surprise. I owe you one.

Part of a resent trade with my buddy Jerod out in Iowa. Thanks again! This is easily my new favorite oatmeal stout.

Pours black as night with a fluffy khaki colored head that dissipates pretty slowly and laces well throughout. Smell is of sweet oats, toasty malts and some cacao. The taste is fantastic.. Fluctuates gracefully from sip to sip.. Toffee, Milk chocolate, espresso, sugary oat flakes, milk, and Caramel. Toffee notes lingering sip to sip. This was way to smooth and delicious to sip on with a bag of chocolate covered pretzels.
