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.

Bottle. Pours black with very little head and lacing. Mild aroma of coffee and chocolate and some dark fruit. Taste is a little coffee and chocolate and plum or prune. Good but tastes more like a porter.

drpimento (2293) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Excellent! Appearance is a thick velvety tan head that lasts forever; lots of lace and an opaque brown black color. Aroma at first is just dry dark roasted coffee and then the mall to comes on and I pick up more of vanilla and Cocoa and toffee. Flavor is like aroma; carbonic Tang is upfront but toned down there's a bit of sweetness but also tonedown; lovely beer. Body is perfect. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LilBeerDoctor (3505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2014 On tap at Ale Asylum. Pours black with a thick chocolate colored head. Aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla, toffee, roasted malt. Flavor of rich liquor-laden chocolate syrup, dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla. SO chocolatey! It is like dessert in a glass. Not the artificial tootsie roll chocolate either- rich dark chocolate and dark chocolate fudge. Heavenly. 7/4/9/4/16 (4.0/5)

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Inky black color with a medium creamy tan head that dissipates steadily to a wispy film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium bodied with a strong charred malt character and notes of coffee and cocoa. The finish is roasty with a coffee and malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

Draft. Black with thin brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate and coffee. Medium/heavy body, extra dark chocolate, coffee, and a chocolate finish.

Indra (2656) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On draft at the brewpub. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, cream, milky sweetness, roasted dark malts, touch of the oatmeal and a faint hint of yeast esters. Largely black in color with a lasting, creamy, fine, khaki head. Flavor profile is a touch sweet, more chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and some faint bubblegum/banana, very faint bitterness and dark breadiness appearing at the finish, some bittersweet aspects throughout. Smooth and fairly hefty in feel, body is full as well. A rather proper Oatmeal Stout, all in all.

DrSilverworm (6937) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2014
7oz shorty on tap at the brewpub. Black color. Thin light brown head, leaves very good thicker lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Kind of chewy texture. Light slick finish. Moderate bitter taste, moderate sweet, light hint of the alcohol. Some dark chocolate, mild coffee roast, light bit of dark fruit and a hint of metallic in the flavor. Alright bigger bodied oatmeal stout. Solid.
