COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A decadent Oatmeal Stout brimming with cocoa and espresso aromas. This beer features a rich, dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavor with a creamy mouth feel and wonderfully dry finish. The addition of U.S. grown fuggles hops contributes the perfect amount of bitterness to this exceptionally balanced beer.

On nitro at hopleaf. Big foam, nice. Some muted coffee nose. Dark tan with some red hue. Taste is pretty good, the body is excellent. Not much tasting to note, to be honest. Coffee is all I’m really getting. The mouthfeel is the best part of this, probably due to the nitro which works perfectly on this beer.

sawbuck (594) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Aroma of some coffee, toffee, and a hint of dark chocolate. Ebony color with a tan head that fades fast. Sweet and creamy up front. Dark chocolate, some charcoal, and a hint of vanilla. Slick mouth feel, finish is bitter chocolate, and some smoke. Not bad.

tillmac62 (638) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAR 22, 2016
BOD 10/28/15. Pours black. Normal head volume, lacing and retention. Light but very good nose of coffee, chocolate, roast and a bit of char over a slightly sweet malt base with subtle caramel notes. Almost medium body with a bit of creaminess in addition to being smooth - a bit light for an oatmeal stout. World class carbonation with a burst of effervescence in the middle and a finely bubbled prickly finish. The flavor profile is very good but falls short of outstanding due to low flavor intensity. The flavors of the nose all appear and do provide a tasty very well balanced experience. The base is mildly sweet, the middle mildly bitter (roast and hop) and the finish delivers the coffee notes.

vadie (1183) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2016
Noir très foncer avec une petite mousse marron. L’arôme du café, chocolat et malt torréfié. L’arôme est très intense, comme un porto (mais du seigle au lieu des raisins!) En bouche c’est onctueux, avec plein du malt torréfié et du café. Bien équilibré et très bonne.

OK, it is good but not great. No sharp edges, cocoa and coffee ce through, but it misses more complexify and fruit. Not bitter, easy drinking...

RRistow12 (607) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2016
Tasted from bottle. Pours black with thin tan head that quickly fades. Aroma is not quite as robust as I like but still solid with notes of coffee and roasted malt. Very smooth tasting with well balanced sweetness and bitterness. Flavors of coffee, roasted oats, and a hint of chocolate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
