Poured a dark brown color with aromas of chocolate, light vanilla, and some earth. Flavors were the same. Had this in bottle as well as on nitro, on nitro it had a light creaminess to it, a nice beer overall.

Appearance: the head is extremely nice on this beer, very dense and in tact, does not dissolve quickly, the beer is completely opaque, dark brown roasty color Aroma: chocolate, roasty, earthy, slightly faint Taste: roasted chocolate malt flavor is very present, earthy and oaky, the oak aged taste is definitely coming through, no overwhelming flavors, slight bitterness, heavier beer Palette: bitter on tongue, mid to heavy body Overall: winter beer, the beer could have a bit more flavor, definitely drinkable and easy to to drink ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ Radio Maria. Nitro creates a thick beige foam pad atop a near black body. Faint aroma of sweet roast. Creamy, roasty palate with notes of coffee, vanilla, chocolate. Mildly bitter finish, creamy mouthfeel. Very good.

Very light tasting actually. It tastes like a less impactful/alcohol imperial stout. Smoother than heavier imp stouts and easier to drink. If you were to water down something like a wake up dead, it would get you here. It's still quite good, just not amazing or all that unique.

From tasting notes. Pours almost black with a small brown head. Aromas of roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, light wood and a hint of vanilla. Flavors of roasted malts, caramel, coffee, light chocolate, vanilla and a hint of wood. Stronger wood notes in the finish.

Draft @ Oakquinox 2013. Dark brown in color with a khaki head. Some oak, lots of roasted malt, coffee, and a fair amount of ash. Some dark fruits, a lot of grass, and water. Bitter flavor of roasted malt and ash. Coffee, mild cocoa, charred oak, and grass. Pretty mediocre.

Boulder Beer Obovoid Oak-Aged Oatmeal Stout is similar in style to a Guinness, but better. Nice aromatics when first poured, but they dissipate quickly. Beautiful dark color with an effervescent creamy, tan head that settles into the liquid well. Slight roasty to the taste, but I didn’t get much of the oak-aged notes. Slight bitterness but mostly a dry chocolatey flavor. Boulder Beer Obovoid Oak-Aged Oatmeal Stout is a nice version of a classic style.

Aroma is dark fruit, chocolate and a hint of oatmeal smoothness. The flavor is dark fruit, chocolate, malts and a mix of acidity and smoothness in the finish. Interesting, although I prefer oatmeal stouts that are smoother, the acidity took away some of that.
