Draft sample. Poured a black color with a medium off-white creamy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium toasted chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted sweet malt flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew.

Ferris (9776) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
Draft - Molasses, oatmeal and lots of toast. Deep maroon with almost no head. Sweet dark fruit, raisin and a sweet finish. Fruity and almost too sweet, but interesting.

Tap at Bent River on Nov. 26, 2011. Dark brown pour with a small head. Coffee and cocoa on nose and taste. Very nice.

3fourths (8879) - 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.

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.

Handbottled via Duane, thanks!

Pours a medium brown hue with a fizzy head and okay lace. The aroma has notes of chocolate, roasted malt, oatmeal, prune, grassy hops, and coffee. The taste follows suit mostly starting with a nice mocha and grassy hop balance with some twangy fruit, earthy yeast and a finish notes some iced coffee character. The feel is fizzy and thin, oatmeal stout should have more body than this, refreshing enough though. A good beer and glad to have tried it.

4oz sampler at the Bent River brewpub. Poured a close-to-black color with a small tan head. Aroma had plenty of chocolate malts, with some grain and oat characters, some cereal. Flavor was nice and chocolate, with oat-grain notes. This was pretty enjoyable. I enjoyed the palate a bit more with this one over the Uncommon Stout.

Nice flavor on this black beer with a sticky head. Roasty, toasty and pretty high on the smoothness meter ... slightly above average.

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.
