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.

From a 12 oz bottle poured at home. Pours a deep cola brown with a thick tan head that recedes leaving lots of lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate. Flavors of milk chocolate with some mild licorice notes. Mild bitter finish.

The initial aroma smelled of molassis with nodes of cough drop. This turned to a sweet raisin smell followed by caramel. The appearance is fantastic, although more head would of been desirable. The stout is medium bodied and creamy with a clean, smooth bitterness. Overall a very drinkable beer that I would recommend.

Damn! What a tasty beer especially for such a low ABV! Aroma was nice and full. Coffee, dark chocolate and just a small hint of vanilla. Pour was a deep dark brown with a thin tan ring for a head. Taste was huge and full. The dark chocolate and coffee flavors were mouth filling and strong. Nice creamy mouth feel with nice strong carbonation. Great beer!

Appearance is dark brown with tan head. Aroma is dark malts with some toffee. Taste is chocolate malt with a creamy finish. Overall good beer that finishes dry but lacks body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma is nice, roasted coffee. Taste is full on coffee and roasted malt. There?s very little bitterness on the back end. Surprising this wasn?t more bitter...but it?s a pleasant surprise.

This is a very well balanced and smooth stout. Pours black with a tan head. Lacing is minimal. The aromas are great - coffee, roasted malt, caramel, and slight hints of alcohol. The body is light and creamy from the oats. Overall a very good and easy drinking stout.

A decent stout, but not overly impressive. A bit heavier on the espresso than the cocoa. The bitterness overpowers the flavors by a bit. Not bad, just not great.

kansascityCW (109) - kansas city, Missouri, USA - APR 23, 2014
Pours very dark brown; no light coming through it at all. Looks black in the glass. Amazing smell of roasted malt, chocolate, and perhaps a bit of leather. Taste has some coffee in there as well as some dark chocolate. Silky, creamy mouth feel is unreal considering this is a 5.5 abv beer.

Pours dark brown with a good sized tan head. The aroma has cream, dark chocolate, deep roast, char and a hint of coffee. It has a medium body that is pretty lush and has gentle soft carbonation. The taste begins with smooth roastiness, dry chocolate/cocoa, hints of vanilla and a nice roundedness to everything. There is a hint of lightly earthy hops on the finish, but the smooth dry cocoa taste really takes forefront throughout. Very nice.

Oats and caramel aroma. Great taste of malt and oats and figs. Not too sweet. Short and boozy finish. Overall very flavorful oatmeal stout without being too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
