Number one in a series of five stouts produced for the fall and winter seasons. This beer is full bodied with hints of chocolate, roasted barley, coffee flavors and a nice creamy head.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Sampled at Arg0’s Pre-RBSG Tasting at his pad: Dark black, brown head, spotty lacing. Nose of sharp roast and alcohol, light astringency, sweet chewy raisin. The flavor is chewy, lots of astringency, not much oat creaminess but explosive in intensity. I’m usually not fond of things this unbrash, but it just did me up right. Good.

Looked better than it tasted, a real disappointment in the taste. Thin consistancy with weak head, lacking flavor, indigestive finish...

jsquire (3537) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Dark beer with root beer colored edges when held up to the light. Lots of chocolate and roasted malt in the nose. Very faint whispy head. Very roasty taste that was almost like burnt toast. Some chocolate, burnt coffee with some plum fruitiness. Almost harsh on the tongue, especially for an oatmeal stout.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 24, 2006
Quiet dark, almost black, minimal head. Grainy, light acidic aroma, mild roast. Nothing special. Medium bodied, dry roasted character with shallow end.

Bottle. Deep black with a small mocha ring of head. The aroma is pleasing to say the least - rich roastiness consisting of chocolate and toffee. The flavour has roasty bitterness, chocolate, toffee wafers, and as a result is quite tasty. Creamy mouthfeel and the alcohol is well masked. Nice stuff.

Coffee, chocolate and port aromas, black, small cappuccino head. Rich coffee and dark chocolate taste, bitter top to bottom. Terrific! Thanks mds.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2006
Thanks to artusory. Deep brown body with light, swirling carbonation and an oily tan head. Aroma of deep-roasted marshmallow, dark chocolate, plums, and some noticeable alcohol. Sweet malt and oats initially, followed by substantial roast and hop bitterness. Nice, thick, complex sugars on the palate. A solid oatmeal stout overall.

Pours a dark caramel with no head. Smells of burnt coffee, bitter sweet chocolate, and alcohol. Tastes similar with lots of funky paper, fruit esters, and vegetables. Mouthfeel is way too thin.
