bbrock81 (304) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Pours opaque brown-black with a smallish tan head. Aroma is standard stout, roasty, malty, coffee. Flavor is fairly typical as well, very well balanced, coffee and roastiness, a bit of hoppiness, a nice malt base. Palate is excellent, this is where the oats really come in to play, smoothing everything out very nicely. Overall a good oatmeal stout.

tmoreau (2128) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2012
On tap at the annual CBS picnic, and self served to clear plastic with a black/brown color, light tan, creamy head foam, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was some graininess, and well toasted, nearly roasted malt at this point. Roastiness came forward in the flavor as dry coffee and a little cocoa. Also present were low hop bitterness, not much sweetness, soft carbonation, light to medium body, and a somewhat thin texture. Okay.
