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.

24 feb 2012, bottle. Dark ruby, virtually black. Nose is dark chocolate and some wine notes. Med body and a bit fizzy. Chocolate bitterness and oval time maltiness. Nice. A bit velvety as well.

A mildly bitter beer, rife with flavors of dark chocolate and charred wheat. For an oatmeal stout, this brew feels more sedentary than it should be. This Firestone offering isn’t terrible, but it’s far more underdeveloped than silkier, more robust stouts found elsewhere. Bypass this tap.

Westmeister (1839) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Draft @ APEX. Damn I love this place. Pours dark black/brown with a small beige head. The aroma is chocolate, roast, vanilla, and oak. The flavor starts with chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and light roast with some vanilla and cocomut. Quite sweet in the finish, but I really am liking the complexity.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Solid black, creamy brown head. Aroma of roast malts and a milky sweetness. Taste is the same great balance of roast and sweet malt with a dry, bitter finish. A really awesome beer at a great price. Thick texture, heavy body. medium high carbonation.

thome50 (1083) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle from Bearcat Country aka my hometown. Pours a deep brown to black with tan head that keeps its place the entire beer. Aroma is cacao with some oatmeal, cinnamon, dark fruit notes. Really has some oatmeal raisin cookie notes to it but not sure if that is just from the name. Taste, espresso with some sweetness that is quickly overshadowed by the bitterness. Coffee forward on this one but not overpowering for a non-coffee drinker. Overall, awesome and something much deeper than the ABV would indicate.

12 ounce bottle pour. Pitch black with a decent tan head. Coffee, chocolate and roasty. Light black licorice. A nice stout.

Very nice roasted espresso tones. Pours pitch black with a medium creamy head. Roastiness in strongest feature.

reggiedunlop (3227) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Pours deep brown/black with a medium tan head...nice lacing. Aroma has nice roasty coffee notes, mild nuttiness and cocoa. Flavor is loaded with bold coffee and nuttiness...very roasty...some dark chocolate...very tasty! Mouthfeel is mediumand creamy and the finish is roasty and lingers with coffee. Awesome beer!

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2012
On tap at Monk’s Kettle, SF. Nice silky looking dark brown pour. Nose is quite sharp for what I expected to be a rich oatmeal stout, with the chocolate notes suffused with a bit of molasses and char. Mouthfeel is, yes, rather velvety. Tons of coffee and licorice in the flavors, a bit blunt and lacking the mellowed balance I’d expect from a beer of this ABV. Still fairly decent, though.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2012
Bottle from 2011 release. Pours an opaque black color with an tan head. Aroma is of oatmeal and reminds me of Quaker Oatmeal Squares, along with roasted malt, subtle coffee and burnt notes. The flavor is again of the Quaker Oatmeal Squares, a light sugary note, roasted malt, coffee and dark fruit. The body is medium with a lightly creamy mouth feel. Overall a solid brew, but I was quite disappointed in it, maybe it had something to do with the fact that its over a year old...
