Growler provided by Rich: Nearly opaque with a small frothy tan head and some lace. The aroma has notes of mocha, coffee, smoke, floral hops, earthy esters, and a hint of fig. The taste starts malty and moderately sweet with noticeable chocolate overtones. The finish is more towards the smoky and coffee twang. A bit of oat does appear but is subdued by the bitterness. The aftertaste display a touch of fruit and lactic notes. The feel is smooth and a tad watery. A good stout and easily drinkable as I finished the growler (minus one 12 oz handbottle for later) in one setting. THX

On tap at BBW, an almost black glass with a persistant, thin tan head. Chocolates and some coffee are strong in the nose, and lead into a heavy chocolate flavor. Malts and coffee are minor taste elements, and they are blended smoothly into the sweetness of the oatmeal, which I could definitely taste. A rich velvety mouthfeel gave way to just a tad of bitterness when the glass got a little warm, but this is easily the best brew at BBW, and I may be biased as a local, but this beats alot of the stouts I’ve had to this point.

Their "flagship beer" so I’m told. Bubbly and creamy, but soft! Very nice. Still not tasting much "oatmeal" flavor, what’s with that? I’m not sure I’m comprehending this style after a couple tries on it. Liking the tie in with the Steelworkers of Bethlehem.... if only some were still around to live up to the tale. Sigh.

Just a really nice stout here. Very smooth, just goes down so easy. The oatmeal kick is there in the finish I think, even if it is a little faint. Always on tap at the Brew Works, a delicious stout that you are never sorry you ordered.

Tap at the brewpub. Deep brown, tan nice head. Nitro. Roasty aroma. Smooth roasty chalky flavor. Nice slight tartness.

got this at the brewworks for my friend's 21st birthday during the great northeast blackout. Very good stout overall, but not very "oatmeal". Doesn't really detract from it though. I still recommend this beer, and the Bethlehem BW as a whole

I made my first trip to BBW in early March, 2004. I was very impressed with the food and beers. I had this one as part of their sampler. It is very dark, with a thick light brown head. Very malty, with subdued hops. Overtones of chocolate, roastiness, and raisins. BBW is worth the trip.

Stopped at Bethlehem Brew Works for a business lunch, only got to sample the stout. Started off well with my pint having a dark body, and off white head. Aroma was roasted malts, just what you would expect from a stout. As I drank the stout I noticed a harsh salty / bitter aftertaste.

Black, with dense tan head. Full-bodied. Roasty and sweet with a slight bitterness. Lots of coffee and chocolate.
