Bottle. Pours almost black with thin brown head. Nice coffee aroma. Bold beginning with the taste of roasted and chocolate malt and a bit creamy. The finish lingers with bitterness from the roasted malt. This is a good stout, maybe not as smooth as some others but full bodied and full flavored.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Huge mocha colored head recedes slowly over the black body. Aroma of bittersweet chocolate with a hint of dark fruit. Coffee and chicory stand out in the initial taste while the earthy roasty flavors play catch-up. More chocolate in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering finish.

12oz bottle into an English pint glass. Pours a rich black with a thin creamy head. Rich roasted malt and coffee aroma which is unfortunately not matched in the flavour department. Rather light on the palate with a sweet flavour and a light bitter finish.

Bottle. This is a pretty lack luster sweet stout with a decent body bit not much flavour.

Poored out of bottle into a glass. Poors dark with a thin tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, and a nice nutty smell. I really enjoy the aroma of this beer. The initial taste of the beer is that of a barley, alcohol taste. Soft notes of bittnerness, which in my opinion is great. The after taste is what makes this beer shine. The after taste is of barley, chocolate, and coffee. I love bitter beers, and stouts nonetheless so this was a great beer to drink for my tastes.Thanks for the great brew! Cheers .

Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma has some milk chocolate, coffee, and roast malts. The flavor is similar but very harsh. Thin in the end. Great start, so so finish.

Single 12 FL. OZ. bottle purchased from Top Shelf Brews... for $1.79? I honestly canít remember, but I know it didnít exceed $2. To snifter it pours a dark charcoal brown with trim a toffee tanned head, not even a fingernail in length. Smells and tastes of cheap bourbon, sorghum molasses, booze, Lodndon yeast, vinyl, leather, and some brief roast/ash. Where the hell was the oatmeal? If it was there, it was well hidden. Meh.

pours black with no head. This beer tastes like watered down coffee, it is lightly bitter and has a bit of a roasted malts taste with a medium sourness

12oz bottle, thanks to tmoney99. Best by date: Dec, 2012. Black color. Good 1-finger thick brown head. Nice toasty, oaty, chocolatey nose. Good lighter carbonation, lighter body. Easy to drink, smooth... But still a light chewiness to it that is very enjoyable. Nice roast, light coffee, light burnt malts. Good bittersweet taste. Slight metallic. Lightly smokey. Hint of tobacco. Some chocolate-cereal.. Some sediment visible at the bottom of the glass. Very satisfying oatmeal stout... Much better than expected
