On tap. Black pour, brown head. Aroma is sweet, mostly dark chocolate. Only a hint of coffee, some black cherry. Nice creamy full body. Smooth and sweet. Simple but satisfying.

Smells like coffee beans, tastes roasted and coffee like, not too heavy bodied, pretty nice.

Kauge (1557) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 8, 2016
Can from LCBO. BB Aug 2016. Pours reddish dark brown with moderate light tan head. Aroma of... well, yea, some roast and ground coffee. Tastes sourish-bitter roasty, dark bitter chocolate and ground coffee. Pretty mellow on the palate but hardly the oatmeal softness I’d have expected. Very thin but in a way active carbonation, livened by the stimulating effect of coffee. Overall pretty good but I would’ve loved even more coffee in this, and perhaps more softness too.

Johnsense (1323) - - MAY 7, 2016
Dark pour, large offwhite head and good lacing. Fresh brewed coffee, chocolate in the aroma. Roasted malt, coffee,dark chocolate taste. Medium body. Not bad at all. Would like a bit more oomph behind it.

probstblueribbon (3700) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2016
473 ml can from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep brown-black with a fairly firm mocha head. Aroma: Roasted malts, light to moderate coffee, a little dark chocolate, sort of a thick, grainy/cereal thing, a touch of molasses. Palate: Medium to medium+ body (expected more) with fairly full and prickly carbonation (expected less). Flav.: A bit more coffee, still plenty of roasted malt, doesn’t get astringent or roasty bitter though, a touch of dark chocolate, fairly dry and stark; dry with moderate bitterness and a smooth, roasted malt finish.

Fairly competent. “Oatmeal”, to me, means a bit more body and mouthfeel than this offers. The coffee is nicely expressed (expressoed??).

Metalchopz (3055) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
Can from the LCBO listing 5% ABV. Pours a dark brown, almost black colour with very little highlights. The head is creamy, bubbly, long lasting with some nice dirty lacing. Chocolate malt aromas with hints of coffee and roasted malts. The taste is mildly sweet from the oatmeal, over the roasted malts, chocolate and coffee notes. Decent Oatmeal Coffee Stout but nothing too exceptional.

On tap at The Loop, in Toronto. Pours a black colour with a generous tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, chocolate. Taste is same. Pretty good.

GlennHendry (262) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2016
Inky black pour with a creamy tan head that dissipates quickly. A ton of roast coffee on the nose with dark chocolate and more roast coffee on the tongue. Very nice.

CurbDog (114) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2015
Very small tan head, fades quickly and clings to edge of glass. Very dark brown / black. Roast, chocolate, oats, coffee aromas. Matching flavours with an ashy finish with malty sweetness. Slick silkiness from the oats, med-high carbonation. Coffee balanced.

KoNrRiI (1182) - Århus, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2015
0.473 can. Pitch black color and a small, brownish head. Aroma of coffee, burnt malts, dark chocolate, and a bit of smoke. Taste is obviously dominated by coffee, rather sweet, dark chocolate is also in the mix. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is medium long, coffee-like, a tad chocolaty. Overall not a bad beer but I never particularly liked coffee stouts; their strong flavor seems to only cover up what would-be flaws.

deepeary (405) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2015
Can from the LCBO. Smells like sweet roasted, malt, bitter chocolate, touch of smoke. Taste is rather mild on the coffee, but it’s there. Sweet roasted malt, nice bitter finish. Good stout, though not much coffee present.
