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.

3fourths (7859) - 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.

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

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

Cornfield (5437) - 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.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2006 Recieved a hand bottled sample courtesy of Duane. Thanks. Black body that shows a beautiful ruby color when held to the light. The aroma is strong roasted coffee with some chaocolate and peanuts. The taste has roasted peantus and coffee. There is also some caramel. A fairly sweet finish. Nice. I had this again at Old Chicago in Coralville, IA. Got about the same rating. Good stuff.

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.
