COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copious amounts of dark and sweet malt give our stout aromas of coffee and a rich mouthfeel with a dry finish.

Good beer. Walks an interesting line between a dry and sweet stout. The flavor profile is quite good, lots of nice bitter roast and some solid chocolate. The mouthfeel is fine, but not as rich as I would hope in a beer brewed with oatmeal. Overall, though, a very solid take on the style.

On draft at the brewpub. For some reason I always think that I don’t like this beer as much as I should and every time I try it I am a big fan.

Very good but not up with the best: not as thick and creamy. Drier and slightly bitter

Draft pint at the new brewery. Pours a dark coffee brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted malts, chocolate, mild coffee, brown sugar, oats, maple, and nuts. Flavor of milk chocolate, mild roast, sweet toasted nuts, oats, and cream. Medium-bodied, with mild carbonation and a sweet, toasty mouthfeel that’s a little sticky at the end. Well done. Just to style.

Has some big bold coffee roast and chocolate scents. Taste is similar to the scent, but the roast comes out in a big way, gives it a little smokey character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at the brewpub with ck1, thanks bro! Pours a very dark, dark brown with a surprising fine carbonation. Aroma has a nice sweet semi-burnt malt smell, with chocolate, molasses and charcoal. Taste brings sweet oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, molasses and some lactose. Quite thick. Finishes dry and much quicker than I expected. Mostly sweet in the end. Rivaled Hopalicious as best at the brewery, I thought.

Slick. Slightly sweet. Nutty earthy aromas. Roast notes are low but this beer is just wonderful.

Almost black with a thick tan head. Up front chocolate & light coffee aroma. Flavor is chocolate, sweet. Medium-heavy body, silky, light hop bitterness. A very well made sweet stout.

On tap @ Ale Asylum. Pour is deep brown/black with a tan head. Aroma smells like a chocolate oatmeal cookie with a touch of coffee. Flavor shows the same with nice roast and a touch of nutiness. Overall body is moderate and creamy soft with a nicely roasted bitterness on the finish.

Enjoyed on tap as part of a sampler at Ale Asylum in Madison, WI. Appearance a very dark black with rich off white head. Aroma of coffee, light lactose, oats, very nice. Taste is very good, oat comes out, light hop biiterness, also very nice. Very good oatmeal stout!
