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.

Tons of over roasted espresso on the nose, dry cacao powder, burned oak logs, oats and granola. mouthfeel is medium bodied, less creamy and full then i expected for an oatmeal beer. pretty solid all around but not outstanding or best in class.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4348) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle from Craft Beer Base. It poured an inky black with a brownish-white head. A mild chocolate aroma which is followed by a crisp tasting beer with rich caramel notes. It was very flavorful for such a low ABV, very well balanced & easy to drink. A satisfying brew!

Doghair (312) - Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Dark brown with a light brown foam. Disappears quick to a nice ring. Aroma of roasty malt and coffee. Light but it?s there. Taste is roasted malt, some sweet coffee in the middle, with a little hop finish. Clean up front with very clear flavors. Light palate with good carbonation. Very good beer. Easy to drink. Very enjoyable.

tmoreau (3563) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2013
On tap during Lunar Brewing Co.’s Firestone Walker Tap Takeover gathering. Dispensed to a FW logo shaker not necessarily viscously, with a black/brown hue, brownish tan, cream & bubbles head, and thick strands of ribbony lacing on the glass. The aroma was heightened roastiness, coffee, a little burnt/smoky character, with a touch of baker’s chocolate on the back. A moderate, earthy hop bitterness partnered with the smoky/woodiness in the flavor, along with a good, creamy malt presence, and maybe just a slight hint of treacly sweetness. Not necessarily full bodied, with soft carbonation and a dry finale, but definitely a fine, mellowed Stout.

Scipio (817) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Pours an inky looking black with a very thin tan head. Aroma is dominant of coffee, some chocolate, and some smokiness. As opposed to the aroma, the chocolate really comes out in the taste. Earthy malts here, along with the smoke flavors. Coffee takes a backseat until the end. Aftertaste is smoky coffee, and is rather short. Light to medium in body, smooth when drinking, and short on carbonation. Not bad here, although I enjoy other efforts by Firestone Walker more.

Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2013
On Tap at Denver Winter Brew Fest ’13. Pour is pitch black with a medium brown head and good lacing. Big roast and chocolate notes, wood, coconut, light spice, coffee, and brown sugar in the aroma. Taste is toasty, dark chocolate, dark fruits, toffee, oats, and caramel with a light bitter/roasty finish. Creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Really easy-to-drink stout.

BigSound (196) - New York, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Pours black with a thin tan head. Roasty, smokey notes in the aroma. Roasty malt and dark fruit flavors, a hint of dark chocolate. The carbonation is a little strong, long bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2013
12oz bottle from Binny’s Plainfield. Pours a black body with a finger-width, creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is smooth oats and roasts with a nice dark chocolate backing, a good amount of earth, and touches of vanilla. Flavor is similar. Roasty and earthy with a smooth dark chocolate and oat backing. Touches of vanilla towards the end before this finishes smooth and dry with a medium-light, roasty and earthy bitterness alongside a nice chocolate backing. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a soft, creamy, moderate carbonation. Overall, a really solid oatmeal stout. Smooth, earthy and roasty with a solid chocolate and light vanilla note. Great beer.

Slight roast malt aroma. Has a nice rosted malty taste. Nothing really stands out on this one. Very subtile cocoa taste. Not much else. Basically an oatmeal stout light.

12 oz bottle. Pours black with a decent, tan head that dissipates quickly. Roasted malt aroma with notes of coffee and chocolate. Medium-full body with a very smooth and creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Rich sweet and robust flavor with a great, toasty dry finish. Smooth as hell!
