This quite probably the best Oatmeal Stout in america, and a contender for best over all. Pleasant mix of fresh oats and roasted chocolate combine for a very pleasing smell. A decent head with excellent lacing in a 16oz pint glass. The taste is thick and savory, nutty sweetness blends in well to form an almost perfect combination, there is a hop presence but its mild enough the bitterness doesn’t interfere.

Pours a rich dark brown with a moderate tan head. Smells of caramel and cocoa. Taste is bitter and sweet - toasty cocoa and rich bread, floral hop bite.

Bardzo przyjemne piwo. Nagazowanie średnie. Aromat: sos sojowy, kakao, karmel, kawa, lekka paloność. Smak: słodki, karmelowy, kakaowy, metaliczny; piwo jest średnio pełne i całkiem gładkie. Bardzo sesyjne i relatywnie lekkie. Solidne.

Bottle from Whole Foods Glen Mills. Blackish pour tan head but only some, lace was prevalent not so much now, aroma is lots of roast, barley, earth, malt, coffee. Flavor is a shadow of the smell. Love the roasted barley and coffee. Smooth.

SinH4 (2180) - Garching, GERMANY - APR 29, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma is chocolate, oat, quite intense. Taste is chocolate, oat, some green peppers, leather, nutty, light and refreshing. A bit too light after this intense aroma. Fine-bubbled carbonation. Sweetish, but not really sweet and a little bit too watery. Quite light actually. Good.

Fairly aggressive pour with a 3-finger light brown head... very nice lacing.. Brew is very very dark dark brown.. the only light shows up at the tail end of the glass. Very smooth aroma.. black malts with a touch of chocolate and some yeasty fruits on the tail end. Drinkablity is very high.. burnt grains and light dark chocolate are offset by a pretty astounding palate.. good bitterness with a middle of the road maltiness.. Medium body with creamy palate.. the carbonation pushes the flavor through.. dry cocoa finish. Very tasty and a spot-on body.. what I want in an American Oatmeal Stout.

BOTTLE 12 OZ. Opaque black with ruby highlights, dark beige head. Big sweet chocolate liqueur aroma, rum-infused candies. It’s all desert-like, not much roast/coffee notes. The taste is similar, but less rich, possibly due to carbonic acid and thinnish mouthfeel. Again, it’s on the sweeter desert-like side, not much roasted barley here.

ffbot (278) - Oakland, California, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Pour is a deep black, still and frothy head that slowly degrades. Leaves no lacing. Poured it out of a 22 ounce bottle. Smell is bitter oats, raw cookie dough, leather and wood. Taste is close to that - lots of bitter stout taste to this one. Tastes like a bitter oatmeal cookie

Can. Dark brown pour. Big tan head. Aroma of mineral water and a little mocha. Flavor is roasted malts with a slightly bitter finish. Body is thin and level of carbonation is low.
