On nitro @5H in Davis Square, Boston. Brown pour, huge foamy cocoa head. Mild roast aroma, very creamy dark chocolate flavor- a bit bitter. So chewy!!! Like a milkshake. Cray cray.

Finhead (1111) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Deep mahogany with almost no head. The aroma has an interesting mixture of chocolate covered raisin, licorice, and bubblegum. It has a medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. The taste is sweet up front with a more roasted finish.

On draught at Bailey’s Taproom. 2010 vintage. A deep, oxidized aroma. Hints of dark chocolate, oats, and almost a barrel aging. Well worth the try.

solidfunk (2999) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Great. Pours with carpet lacing, black with some clear ruby tinges. Aroma of booze, cereal, sugar and creamy consistency. Leave is sour and a little bitter. Good for oatmeal stout. Tap at Hopcat.

NikkTwist (1387) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Nitro draft at Khyber Pass. Pitch black pour with a huge creamy tan head. Not much aroma due to large head. Tastes like an uber-dark chocolate malted milk shake. Creamy and sweet up front then switches to a lingering finish of nice bitter burnt barrel notes. Creamy mouthfeel, assisted by the nitro. Pleasant dark earthy flavors as well.

jrgratz (113) - New York, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Tap at Jacobs Pickles UWS.. Pour is a muddy brown with thick root beer float head. Aroma is sweet oats, oak, chocolate. Taste is coffee, sweet chocolate, oak, vanilla. Thin body with velvety texture. Not at all what I was expecting from an oak aged oatmeal but interesting in a very unique way.

Beautiful dark pour with an ample long lasting head. Very tasty bourbon and oats. One of the best stouts i’ve had.

steeleliver (116) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2012
On nitro tap. Pours a dark brown, almost black permitting very little light through. Caramel nitro head as expected, about a finger high. Underlying oatmeal stout is apparent with notes of chocolate and nut above. Palate wasn’t excellent, I was expecting slightly better. Solid choice, excellent on nitro.
