Look: dark black with ample amount of head that lasted for a long time
Smell: Full of cacao, chocolate and coffee notes. A lot of maltiness smell also.
Taste: again, full of cacao and coffee notes. Very malty. The hoppiness is well hidden, as well as the bitterness from the roasted malt.

An excellent oatmeal stout.

Aroma is dark/roasted malts, dark fruit and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is roasted malts, dark fruit, a hint of chocolate and a mix of mild sweetness and acidity in the finish.

Got this at the Rail, with a stout-soaked burger and a Great Lakes/Rail pint glass!

Look: deep brown, small head
Smell: coffee, roasted malt
Taste: coffee, malt, hops

I like it! A smoother stout, not very bitter.

This is an excellent stout. It's nice to see it around town in bottles. We really need it year round.

It is very pretty in the glass. All black and lacey. The aroma is actually quite outstanding (raised my original rating). Malty brown, roasted and hopped just the right amount.

The taste is very authentic - not really American. I wish it were more American (over the top). It is, none the less, very good.

I don't know what this brew costs elsewhere, but in the brewer's home town, these things are a steal. Highly recommended as an easy drinking stout.
