COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This classic oatmeal stout is big. From the thick, rich head to the light coffee aroma and flavor, to the long creamy finish, this beer is as big as a Madison winter is long.

Pours a dark black colour, thick body, with an initially small tan head that quickly dissipates. It leaves behind little evidence of a head. Aromas of espresso beans, chocolate and burned toast. Taste is creamy, black cherry, toast and oak flavors.

Pours a nice dark brown/black color with a tan head. Great roasted malt and coffee aromas. Flavor is of roasted malts,coffee, coco and maybe a hint of caramel. Great smooth mouthfeel with anice bitter finish. Not bad! Thanks Brewblackhole!

Dark color. Smell of roasted coffee, malt, hops, sugar and minor caramel. Taste of malt, coffee, light caramel and coco. Light finish and thin. Still decent. Thanks brewblackhole.

Warm chocolately aroma, background roasted malting,,very delicious,taste is the warm chcolate batter with a smooth roasted oatmeal finish,close to being sweet ,but not quite there,this one needs to be at perfect cellar temp to bring out all characteristics

Near black with a frothy, lightly diminished tan head. Roasted malt aromas with a backdrop of mild green hops, or perhaps green coffee. HInts of caramel and pale malts, and oats as well. Big thick rich feel. This is a stout feel for me. not sticky and lip smacking, but lush and lightly oily, with just a few tiny bubbles to keep it active in the mouth. Just looked at the ABV, much stronger than I expected. I was thinking session, but this would be a dangerous sit-down quaff. Light roasted flavors, with a little malt, a little coffee, and a touch of chocolate. Hints of licorice in the finish and linger. Dangerously drinkable. A touch more depth in flavor and this would be killer.

Well, it is big, slick, and a stout. Full on coffee with light cocoa and a smack of ham. The sweet meat taste is odd, and is the sweetness gets a little cloying with the thickness.

Far and away the best of the 11 AA beers sampled at the brewpub. Black, rich, and decadent describe this oatmeal stout to a T. Silky smooth mouthfeel, roasted cocoa, some caramel. I loved it.

3fourths (7977) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2008
24oz (?) happy hour mug at the Come Back In in Madison. Deep brown body. Sweet, sticky rich chocolate and toasted grain flavor, with soem coffee and toffee notes, mildly sweet. Very good, you sense that instantly, but there’s something homebrewish about it. Some plum fruit flavor, some black cherries as well, the kind of fruit notes you find in imperial stout, but here in something more medium strength. A good stout.

On tap. Pours a nice rich black color with a dese dark tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts, chocolate, some coffee notes. Flavor is caramel, chocolate, coffee. Palate is full bodied, mild carbonation, finishes with a blast of roasty bitterness. Good, but not great.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours an opaque black with dark mahogany edges and a dense, frothy brown head that leaves a nice web of lace behind. Aroma of sweet dark caramel, chocolate and roasty coffee. Starts with a dense, fairly-full body with nice earthy sweet dark caramel and molten chocolate flavor toward a thick, lingering roasty finish. A very nice oatmeal stout.
