On tap at Eccentric Cafe. Served in a 16oz imperial-like pint glass. Pour was completely black, head was white but not very substantial. Smells like oats and vanilla but very faint. Medium mouth feel with relatively low carbonation, and a bit tangy. Bitter oat-y taste with some malt and vanilla mixed in. Pretty low-key, nothing outstanding but solid and good. Finish is all vanilla.

Tap @ Bells: Deep, rich black color, almost oily with a foamy film that builds up on top with a nice chunky collar laced around the edges. Creamy oat forward aroma, light milk & cream sweetness with soft cocoa nibs, bakerís chocolate, & hints of caramel-like sweetness. Flavor contains a bit more roast & even some light coffee bean, although the presence of semi-sweet, creamy oats is still very much the front runner. Milk chocolate & oats play well with a leafy & lightly earthy hop profile. Finished with notes of chocolate covered burnt grains. A nice & easy drinking stout.

Another A+++ stouty from this brewery....perfect aroma of coffee and roast. Flavor is so smooth and rich with carmel and malt expressions. Finishes not too malty, but awrae that its there. GREAT

Mmm stouty! I got this at a tap takeover because I had never heard of it before... Itís great, one of those stouts that has that stouty creamy attitude but still manages to be somewhat refreshing.

On tap at Tap and Mallet Total Tap Takeover. This one had to go after some other world class Bellís beers, thus itís rating will suffer. This one falls short of world class and the standards of oatmeal stout IMHO, but is still a decent beer. Rocky foamy head. Thick. Nose is cocoa and powered. Mouthfeel is a bit dry, odd for a sweet stout.

Bottle gift from SJ. Nice notes of chocolate malts, roast, coffee, and oatmeal. The body was a bit too thin for the way I like my stouts, but it was stil a well-blended brew.

On tap at tap house. Black thick pour light head. Aroma of chocolate malt. Taste is a slight sweet slight bitter chocolate stout. Reminds me of a lift breakfast stout.

Draft at Bells. Pours black with tan head. Lots of chocolate and dark fruit in the nose. Taste is earthy oatmeal, sweet/roasted malt, chocolate. Nice sweetness but not overly so for a "Sweet Stout". Heavy body, rich and warming.

Solid stout as always. So damn smooth and drinkable. Great roasted malts balanced with notes of chocolate and oat.
