Had a couple glasses from a growler supplied by Rooftoprogue. Pours dark brown with tan head. Aromas of roasted coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. Flavor was dominated by roasted coffee with some chocolate, and fair amount of roasted malts. Finishes with bitter coffee. Mouthfeel was a tad thin. Had a stronger coffee flavor than the java stout.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2010 Have had on tap many times at Bent River, and this is one of my favorites, and is my fiancee’s absolute favorite. Great coffee and chocolate notes, a creamy mouthfeel, and an all around great beer.

3fourths (8553) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Full and frothy, lip smacking with some sweet oats and some bready, malty and dry notes, good sweet roast flavor, with a doughy, chewy mouthfeel. Good stuff.

JPDIPSO (5045) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Very dark brown with a light tan head. Fully toasted malts with hints of dark chocolate in the aroma. Light mocha flavors along with a touch of roasted malt. Not the big and full feel I expect for an oatmeal stout. Quick quaffable though.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2007
22oz hand bottled from Duane! - Thanks! - Pours dark brown fairly transparent with a short offwhite head. Aromas of slight coffee, lots of roasted malts and a little chocolate. Flavor is mostly roasted malt but I got some definite chocolate and a good amount of coffee as well. Medium body but a little watery on the palate and a slight bitterness at the finish..

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2006
Nice pour, a clear dark brown with ruby highlighting and a modest off-white head. The aroma is coffee with lightly roasted barley and some bittersweet chocolate. Smooth. The flavor is a nice blending of the three, but sadly a touch of lactic sourness comes forward in the finish. Otherwise pretty decent.

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - APR 16, 2006
On tap @ Old Chicago. Poured a dark ruby with a small eggshell colored head. Aroma of oats, lots of dark chocolate and roasted malts, and some coffee. Taste was of lots of roasted malts and bitter chocolate, with a little coffee, finishing with a lingering bitterness. Low carbonation, a little watery. I didn’t think this was particularly exceptional.
