Really great beer. The oatmeal is obvious, blunt, and savory. The high alcohol content is welcome as well.

very good example of this style. Most of the local brewpubs are hop-mad, and this was o good find. Pours a dark black, little carbonation. The aroma is roasted coffe and barley malts. The taste is smooth, balanced, and not at all overpowering. This is the kind of stout that you can sit and sip 4 or 5 pints of very easily.

Opaque black color. Creamy tan head. Some roast. Very silky. Wonderful mouthfeel. Slightly hoppy. Very nice. The best beer I've had from Buffalo Bill's by far!

On tap @ the brewery. Great, rich oatmeal nose with good complexity. Flavor was full, with chocolate and malt, with a very smooth mouthfeel. Very nice brew.

Draft at the brewpub! Black with a medium cinnamon tan head. Nose of chocolate, coffee, and granola. Flavor was light hop bitterness, chocolate, and light pepperiness.

Nice, rich stout. It pours dark brown with ruby tinged edges. The aroma is roasted grains, coffee, and toffee. The flavor is the same. I really appreciate the mouthfeel on this one. Velvety smooth and rich without being overpowering. I agree that it’s a little too sweet, but overall, it’s an enjoyable beer.
