Draft - Roasty notes and some oatmeal. Deep black with a nice light brown head. Dark roast and a nice mouthfeel. Solid but nothing special.

TheAlum (6812) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Flight pour on tap at the brewpub (Corvallis, OR). Pours a darker deep blackish brown hue, a near opaque middle shows some healthy roasty cocoa brown glow on the edges and bottom. Creamy light brown head atop stays as a pleasant frothy layer, solid ringer with subtle layer laces nicely. Aromas present toasty and roasty oats, black malts and some cold press coffee. Caramel and cocoa elements offer some depth and darkness, jabs of sweet and dark roast mingle well. Initial is medium bodied, gentle smoke and roasty coffee hit the palate. A bit dark and bitter, a more dry appeal in the body and on the palate than expected. Nothing sweet or overdone. A more dry and toasty experience, a dab of silkiness into the backend. A touch creamy, the oats smooth this one over the palaate but again, this one never ends up sweet or malt driven. Dry and subtle roasty finish, lingering cocoa, toasty biscuits and bitter nib. Pretty masterful Oatmeal Stout, eschewing a sweeter chewy experience for a more dry and bitter feel at times without sacrificing the toasty, roasty and cocoa appeal and flavor. Pretty and good on the palate.

hopwine (663) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Chocolate oatmeal cookies, barely noticeable hop presence that only acts as a balance, a little char, earthy roast, dry.

Steve_0 (3730) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Scott. Thanks man! Pour is deep brown with a small tan head that quickly dissipated. Cocoa, roasty, earthy, nutty, bready, and grassy aroma. Taste is chocolate, coffee grounds, bready, toasted bread, light grass, dark fruits, earthy, and dirt with a bitter finish> medium body with soft carbonation. Well-built just very uninspiring.

Bottle @ Stephen’s house. Pours a dark brown appearance with a thin brown head. A bit of coffee along with a bunch of cocoa, dark chocolate, oatmeal, and vanilla. A bit twangy fruitiness from the coffee in the flavor. A lot of chocolate with a nice soft body. Pretty nice.

On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with a mocha head, dark roasted malt aromas, smooth with dark roasts malt notes. Some bitterness, that tangy coffee bitterness. Average body and mouthfeel.
