Bottle. A very easy drinking stout. Maybe, too easy, a lttle thin but the flavors were all there, chocolate, coffee, roasted flavor. I enjoyed this one.

Decent flavor to this one, lots of roasted flavor, with a bit of sweet chocolate, hops, bitter on the aftertaste, easy drinking brew.

Murky black with reddish hints. Smells like oats and a little piney. Deep roasted oats taste, a little coffee, nice bitter finish.

(Bottle) Pours dark to black. Roasted aroma with dark bread, black berries, liquorice and coffee. Just a touch of vanilla and hops. Roasted, liquorice flavour with a burned ending. Notes of coffee and dark bread. Pretty round mouthfeel. Light sweet and light bitter. Medium body.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2007 This could possibly be a spoiled six pack because the flavor is pretty tame even for an oatmeal stout. Either way, its quite good; black in color and with nice sweet robusty grain flavors. I’d buy it again.
Now unspoiled(12/07/07)---- This is a very good effort. Solid worth a new boosted score above (previous flawed bottle was rated 3.5)

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This looks like liquid chocolate with a frothy mocha colored head. Smells of chocolate and raspberry. The flavor is a bit thin and yeasty, but it has a nice espresso flavor to it. Silky smooth mouthfeel. This is well-rounded, but I’ve had better stouts.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottles. Appearance is dark mocha brown with dark tan head. Moderate lacing evidient. Deelish Count Chocula & hops aroma. Flavor is sweet cooking chocolate, oats, malted milk balls and little twinges of roast coffee. Flavors become more bold as they warm. Aftertaste is wonderfully sharp bitter powdered chocolate. I would happily drink this sweet stout again!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black hue with some ruby highlights. Nice sweet, roasty aroma follows through to the finish. Strong American hop character for an Oatmeal Stout. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel, but finishes slightly dry and astringent. A truly American example of a classic English ale.
