Bottle from Oxford beer store. Joe gave me one. Sharp sweet nose and full thick pour. Medium thick mouthfeel and smooth body. One strange sweet malty chocolatey hint in there but still decent. Not the best but a decent oatmeal stout. Hides the 7% easily. ---Rated via my mouth

Pours black with a thin caramel colored head. Aroma is dark chocolate and coffee. Thick mouthfeel with a strong taste of coffee and dark chocolate bitterness. Funny itís labeled as a sweet stout...Thatís nothing sweet about it. Good beer.

Bottle-Poured black with thin tan head. Aroma-Sweet bakers chocolate and coffee. Taste-Same as aroma with chalky bitter finish. Palate-Thin body and average carbonation. Overall-ok sweet stout. Tastes blend well but seems to be something missing to make it great.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2014
Appearance: Pitch black. Two fingers of a dark brown head that doesnít last. Basically no lacing. Smell: Mm. Roasty and giving off the typical chocolate and coffee aromas, but also a caramel note that really makes me want to try it. Taste/feel: Definitely get the creaminess from the oatmeal, thatís the first thing I notice on every sip I take. The carbonation is very mild as well. The flavor is some deep roasted malt with a dark chocolate and black coffee finish. Not as robust as I was expecting, but very good. Aftertaste is a bit bitter with a burnt/ash flavor a bit there as well. Quite drinkable for the ABV, but still a bit light in the flavor. The mouthfeel is nice, but could use just a liiittle bit more carbonation, as this almost comes off as flat. Iíve had One, I have Two, and will need to get myself Tres and Fore to try out when I head back to the store. This is a very respectable oatmeal stout. Itís not a fantastic one, but a damn tasty beer that Iíd seek out again.
