On tap at the Man of Kent,poured from the tap an ink black with a very thin almost fizzy almond colored head that was gone very quickly.Highly roasted in the nose and quite dry nearly burnt,very thin boarderline watery mouthfeel led to lesser flavor in my mind it was pretty roasted with a hint of coffee.Not to impressed with this it just lacked alot of depth flavor and mouthfeel wise in my opinion.

From bwyker in the SecretBunny.07 BIF. 22oz bottle with note dating.

Deep brown/black like coca-cola. Thin looking. No head/lace or detectable carbonation. Off-putting nose, packed with butterscotch and acetaldehyde; possibly infected.

Zero on the carbonation, it's much like a flat watered-down cola. Slightly tangy, tons of carmel, sticky sweet. Isovaleric, phenolic, and some mercaptan (off-putting defects). Maybe too much roasted barley made it too thick? Undrinkable. Has a sweet roasted porter-type flavor. I don't think this was a very old bottle, and I also think they need to be alot more thorough with the sanitation around the brewery. Hope this helps.

Had this on tap at Brown's. It pours nice and dark with a small off-white head. There is a good roasted aroma with a bit of sweetness. The taste is really good. It has the classic oatmeal smoothness and a good amount of sweetness and roasted malt too. The slight disappointment is in the mouthfeel. It is a bit thinner than i would like. The drinkability is high though.

Had this on tap at Brown's last night. Poured a nice black, with a brown head that settled down to a nice lacing. The smell was nice and roasty, with a hint of coffee. Taste was of toasted oats up front, with a bit of typical roasted coffee in addition. Mouthfeel was surprisingly light, a little thinner than I usually like. Overall, a very good and drinkable beer.

22oz bottle poured into a chalice.

A: Completely opaque with a slightly red hue at the rim of the glass. Virtually no head. Slight carbonation.

S: Mocha coffee and sweet cherries. Subtle oat aroma.

T: First rich, dark coffee and cocoa, followed by hints of sweet toffee. Minimal bitterness. Lasting coffee taste in the finish.

MF: Silky smooth, with a dry finish.

D: Light enough to enjoy on a hot day, yet full enough to notice its craftsmanship.

The beer pours a deep dark black color with a thick frothy tan head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a sweet crystal and chocolate malt scent with some roasted notes and a dry oatmeal aroma. The taste is decent. It has an extremely dry flavor that boasts of roasted, crystal, and chocolate malts along with lots of oats. It has a dry, earthy finish. The mouthfeel is decent also. It is a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a pretty good brew. It is so damn dry, I'm not sure I could drink more than one.

22 oz bomber picked up at the brewery last weekend.

Fizzy, light brown head that doesn't have much retention. Spotted lace throughout the glass with pretty good strength. Opaque dark brown in color.

Roasted coffee beans, light caramel, milk chocolate. Oats with light vanilla aromatics.

Milk chocolate, toffee; a big chewy-chocolate roasted maltiness. Moderate hop bitterness that finishes quite dry. The aftertaste is filled with almonds and hazlenuts.

Full bodied; over carbonated. Prickly versus thickly smooth on the palate.

A pretty middle of the road Oatmeal Stout. The nutty character is what makes this one unique for the style. Drinkable but nothing special.
