realaledrinker (35) - Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Pours dark but with little to no head retention. Not as much roasted character as I would like and very little mouthfeel, especially for an oatmeal stout. This beer left me very disappointed as the style they were trying to brew is one of my favorites when brewed correctly.

harrymel (1496) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Fall 2011 A: Pours dark brown with less than a finger of transient latte foam which leaves a scratched mirror surface with a border of foam. No lace. When available near excellent clarity. S: Oats, bitters, roasted malts, earthy hops (faint), slight sweetness. T: Semi bitter with some earthy flavors from the malts. Slight american ale yeast flavor. M: thin for the style with moderate carbonation. Semi dry finish. O: Meh, not at all impressive for the style. Serving type: bottle 10-10-2011

PhilJackson80 (307) - Oklahoma, USA - NOV 30, 2013
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 12 oz Bottle. The beer pours to a black color with a small tan head. The aroma is malty, roasty, coffee, deep caramel flavors. The taste has a nice slightly sweet upfront taste followed by a rich finish. Overall a good Stout.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Taste roasted malt, slightly sweet. I thought this was un impressive. I would pass on drinking this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tectactoe (1658) - Michigan, USA - OCT 10, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Deep brown with ruby red hints, lighter hued than expected for an oatmeal stout, I guess. Big, light-tan head that takes a while to dissipate fully. Aroma has some deep roast, mild cocoa bean, and a bit of caramel. Kind of light and a little astringency. A tad too simple and muzzled, maybe. Taste is a bit better. Nice mild cocoa flavor, roasted malts, a touch of brown sugar, though it still could use a little surge. Mouth feel isn’t quite up to par for the style. A merely "okay" oatmeal stout at best; a tad too simplistic and possibly mundane.

Ibrew2or3 (6835) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 27, 2013
12oz bottle pours with a dark mahogany to copper body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, dark roasted coffee and earthy dark chocolate notes. The taste has a smooth mix of nearly dark roasted malts, coffee notes and a mild earthy chocolate. That’s about it. It’s pretty roasty but not really burnt either. Pretty nice.

Headbanger (3276) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2013
12oz bottle 6/29/13 (Binny’s Naperville Clearance Rack)-42° in English Pint-Pours black with a small tan ring for a head. Aroma of roasted malt and slight chocolate. Taste of sweetness, malt, and chocolate. This medium bodied brew is not bad.
