Nothing wrong with this but I wanted to like it more.

L-Dark brown....tan light lacing..

S-Sweet, sugary chocolate...

T:Sweet chocolate is big up front...also light notes of black licorice and java

F-Full bodied....a little sticky sweet...almost a doppelbock like feel...or perhaps a Baltic Porter feel.

O-Glad I bought a four pack of this but that will be it for me. Good, solid beer but lacks special qualities I'd expect in the Imperial Stout category. As a basic beefed up chocolate stout it is solid. As an Imperial stout it lacks..

On-tap at Three Cellars, Franklin, WI:

Pours black with a thin white head. Some lacing sticks.

The smell is of chocolate, slight roast, a touch of anise and some alcohol.

The taste of chocolate is certainly there. It could be richer, but it works to give it a strong chocolate character. A touch of anise and mild roast balance the sweetness in the finish. A touch of alcohol warmth comes through.

It hits full-bodied, but could be creamier and and a bit thicker for an imperial stout.

Overall, it's a good choice for a warming, chocolate-forward, yet reasonably balanced, sweet-leaning brew!

Poured from a 12oz. bottle I got while on vacation from the Four Firkins in Minnesota.

A - Pours kinda thin, with a 1/2 finger of brown head. No lacing left behind as I sip...

S - The smell is of a decent oatmeal stout. A little smokes, with a sharp bitterness of dark chocolate.

T/M - The taste is better than I expected. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel. Notes of chocolate, a little dark fruit and some unsweetened coffee. Nice lingering roasted malt aftertaste.

O - A very good, easy to drinking Double Chocolate Oatmeat Stout without almsot no hint of alcohol. I would buy this one again if it was available in the Las Vegas area.

Received this bottle in a trade. Thanks Ed. There is no date on the bottle.

This poured black with a thin head and left nice lacing. Sweet malts dominate the nose with a little smokiness. The taste is similar, slightly sweet, a little smokey, excellent aftertaste. You don't really notice any alcohol component.

A very tasty brew that reminds me of Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout but it doesn't have the hard water component and I think the mouth feel is a tad thinner.

Pours dark brown/black with 1/4 inch head. Served in a pint glass

Smells like chocolate covered coffee beans with a hint of smoke. Tastes like the average stout with an after taste of coco. It is smooth, no off flavors, everything seems to be accounted for, but I find it to be a little thin. A good tasting stout, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Thanks to ncketchum for this brew. Poured this 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Served slightly chilled.

A) Deep brown in color. A very thin tan with okay retention. Not much lacing, a little bit of traction.

S) Like rum cake, or butter rum, some type of rum flavored desert. It's pretty sweet, a little bit woody and smokey too.

T) Darker malt and roast flavor. Not as much chocolate as I anticipated, but enough to note it. Actually this was pretty sugar sweet, and pretty boozy. The booze gives way to and earthy finish and aftertaste.

M) Actually thicker than it looks, which is odd to say, given the color. The feel is pretty smooth, not quite full bodied, light carbonation, kind of oily, bordering on syrupy. Gets a little sticky.

O) Not a boozy mess, but this just didn't get there for me. The alcohol could have been a little better hidden and at times the sweetness was a bit much. It was worth a try, but I don't see myself returning anytime soon. It was okay....
