Pours a deep brown with a small tan head that dissipates into a film. Aroma hit me as soon as I opened the bottle but weakened substantially after the pour. Features: Oatmeal, roasty nuts, hops are very difficult to pin, dough, and light alcohol. Taste is fairly well balanced: sweet, followed by sour, then light salt... bitter. Full body, creamy, average carbonation, with a longer bitter finish. Not my favorite stout but would drink again... Would not BUY again.

pictoman (521) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2013
Poured from a 355mL bottle (12 fl oz). Opaque dark black with decent beige head. Precipitating chocolate aroma with roasted malt nose. Light roasted malt flavour with very mild chocolate. Very light body. Little finish.

Tastes really good. Rolls around your mouth like clothes in a front load washing machine. Slight but not terrible hoppy aftertaste, but well worth it. Pours thicker than just any ale, actually pours like a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the better oatmeal stouts on the market, it is the watermark to judge other oatmeal stouts by. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Thanks to Andres and Brittany! Deep brown, almost black pour with a creamy head. Aroma of Whoppers, oatmeal and roasted malts. Light chocolate and roasted malt flavor with oat sweetness and a dusty crisp ending. Easy drinking stout. Not bad.

Smokey and chocolatey. Mouthfeel is a little sharp but softens. Smooth finish to the bottom of the bottle.

fezzy (82) - California, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Balanced roasted malt with mild bitter cocoa on the finish, smoothed by oatmeal behind the profile. My bottle pours with low very low carbonation; not sure if this is just correct for the style, or that I cellared this for a couple of years and it lost carbonation. Very, very dark brown, near-black, close to opaque. Very drinkable, due to balance hopping, and tasty, but lacking in complexity. Which isn’t inappropriate for the style, just nothing out of the ordinary for a decent stout here.

Mora2000 (5727) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Reviewed from notes. Thanks to someone (5000?) for sending this bottle. Black pour with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate with some roasted malt and oats. Flavor is light smoke with some nice chocolate. Very dry. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Not one of the better oatmeal stouts out there. Tangy, astringent, light roast, lgiht caramel.

Fatehunter (1239) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 6, 2013
Poured a thick two fingers of tan head on a black body. The aroma is great: roasted malt and chocolate. The taste follows suit but with a mild bitter bite at the end. The texture is smooth and soft with moderate carbonation. It hits all the notes for the style with an added extra bitterness.
