OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 29, 2013
A - An almost completely black body with a thick 1 finger espresso head that sinks quickly. Nice lacing lines left behind. S - Sweet roasted malts, coffee, subtle dark chocolate notes. T - Follows the nose. Soft roasted malts, coffee, turns to a caramelized brown sugar sweetness in the middle and finishes off with hints of vanilla and a slight citrus kick that sticks on the tongue. M - Good carbonation and medium bodied with a smooth texture. One of the best Oatmeal stouts I’ve had. There was alot of love put into this beer. Serving type: bottle 11-11-2010

bottle from Utah Liquor store Park city. Pours dark, dark brown with a thin head. very malty on the tongue with a bit of smooth softness from the oatmeal. a bit of malt on the nose. A bit of chocolate lingers on the finish. Solid but it’s not knocking me out.

digopossobon (291) - MACAE, BRAZIL - SEP 21, 2014
Perdi a conta. Acho que foi a nona ou a décima cerveja da noite... Lembranças muito confusas neste momento... Enfim... Creme castanho, denso e bem formado. Líquido negro intenso, turvo. Aroma forte de café. Apesar de seca, muito café e caramelo. Boa acidez.

BiffNilsson (223) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2014
Svart vätska med kraftfull brun krona som lämnar mycket rester. Doften är syrlig och frisk med lätta kaffeinslag. Smaken är ganska tunn och syrlig med lätta kaffeinslag. Ganska lätt och tråkig men inte dålig

Rich and complex chocolate aroma, top stuff. Flavor is a bit of a disappointment considering a great aroma, no bitterness presence or roasted malts... Long and satisfying aftertaste thou, chocolate and coffee. Good one, I would expect a richer body when it comes to oatmeal stouts

Aromat zbyt delikatny. Piwo treściwe, a w smaku wyraźnie czuć dobrą kawę, mimo to piwo nie jest kwaskowate.

Based on the aroma alone, you know this is going to be good. The taste is rich and not bitter with an overall smooth and balanced taste - very flavorful with oat/caramel/chocolate notes and a bit of hop. Color is very dark, not quite black but what you’d expect from a stout.

Fuerte aroma a tostado y caramelo. Color café muy oscuro. Agradable al paladar suave y con cuerpo. Sabor muy tostado como tomar café. Final seco. Buen ejemplo de una stout avena. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

islay (1135) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2014
12 oz. can, consumed on 9-4-14. Malty, tinny, tarry aroma features a plum scent. Subtle and refreshing smell. Pours an opaque, dark brown with a large amount of dark beige head. Very nice, even head with a creamy consistency. Produces some lacing. Simple but enjoyable taste emphasizes the roasted malts and features a dark chocolate flavor. Dry, roasted aftertaste. Light body. Easy to drink. Oaty softness and some liveliness in the palate. Nice softness, but too aqueous to stand out. Overall, likable enough but simple.
