COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich, round and roasted our oatmeal stout is a glass of pleasure. Itís a bold smooth-bodied concoction that oozes aromas and tastes of dark chocolate. We round out these heady flavors with a dose of flaked oatmeal for a creamy texture and semi-dry finish.

Poured from a 22oz bottle purchased at Total Wines. The beer pours dark and I aggressively poured into tulip style glass. Created 2.5 finger foam with some cascading affect. The head lasted a good while which led to a nice dark roasted coffee aroma and palate. I found it to have good cream notes from the oatmeal and a nice balance and crisp finish. A solid brew for $6.99.

Cybercat (3333) - Georgia, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Strong, smoky aroma has notes of quality coffee, licorice and semi-sweet chocolate. Pours a dark chocolate brown that lets in a little light just at the edges and has a thick and fairly persistent tan head. Smoky flavor has coffee, licorice and chocolate notes with hints of caramel, woody hops and molasses. Body seems a bit thin for a stout, and fizz leaves something to be desired - but the texture is this beerís only real weak point.

22oz bottle. $8.99 Total Wine, North Point. Dark brown color. Aroma of smoked malts, some cocoa, a hint of coffee. Tastes of chocolate malt, charred malts, burnt grains. Some wooded hops and light licorice notes, leaves hints of molasses flavors. Finishes with a oatmeal character; charred bitterness, close to an Italian roast. A very good Chocolate Stout, perhaps the best of this brewery Iíve had so far. (3462)

smaynard6000 (635) - Apopka, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2013
22oz bottle. Pours a black color with small beige head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt. Roasty flavor with a bit of chocolate in the finish. Not quite as bold or full-bodied as I expected. I enjoyed this.

22oz bomber pours dark mahogany with tan head of foam. The mild aroma offers up somewhat oxidized earthy malts, faint chocolate and thatís about it. The taste has a flash of the same earthy maltiness that quickly gets over run by dark roasted malts, burnt malts and then a coffee sensation. To midway sweet malty earthiness and a dash of chocolate come to the surface before roasted to burnt malts take over and run this thing into the finish.

nearbeer (3735) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 25, 2012
650 ml. Opaque ebony with a lasting disc of cream. Nose of espresso, dark chocolate, dusty oats, burnt toast. Front tastes of dark chocolate with some sour cream; then some charred grain, espresso, oats and hints of blackberry. Medium body is sweetish, but is balanced well by the deep roast flavors and is slightly watery, as a good-drinking stout should be. More than a pleasant surprise, this is a shockingly good beer from a brewery that I had nearly given up on. It seems they know how to brew darker ales better than other brews.

Braudog (5748) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle. Dark, roasted brown color, the head a thin but resilient cauldron of tan foam. The aroma is nice -- reminiscent of roasted nuts and campfires. The beer drinks with a pleasant taste of nutty chocolate, kinda like youíd get from a chocolate-laced granola or something. Quite good. (#4795, 9/30/2012)

Suttree (5144) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Dark brown, thinnish brown head. Smells like espresso and dark chocolate. Fairly rich body. Taste is more dark chocolate and coffee. Dryish finish. Not great, but not bad, either. If you find yourself in the mood for a tasty, uncomplicated stout, this will hit the spot.

marcus (6517) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours dark brown with very little head and a chocolate aroma. There is a hearty chocolate flavor, smooth and not overly sweet, with a dry finish.
