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.

Wittales (761) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Appearance was clear root beer with creamy diminishing tannish 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are sweet chocolate, soft coffee, oats, caramel, roasted malts. Taste are sweet chocolately, vanilla, oatmeal, roasty expresso malts, hints of herbal spicey hops. Palate was smooth creamy CO2 with meduim body, an average sweet oaty cocao creamy cleanish finish. A prime example of a oatmeal stout.

Thisis12ptfont (1107) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Aroma of oats, vanilla, herbs and barley. Thick black in color with a small tan foam. Remarkably smooth flavors of oats, cocoa, espresso, coconut, vanilla and barley. Finish brings notes of roasted caramel, molasses and coffee beans. Overall, very complex flavors with a strongly noticeable roasted trait to it. I’d give this an A+ rating. It’s thoroughly delicious.

Aroma is chocolate and subtly coffee. Pours dark brown and a light head, very inviting. Tastes of chocolate and coffee, but neither is overpowering. Making it a very well balanced stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice beer. Yummy taste.... Front beat: sweet but not too sweet perhaps its Something on the back beat that was a tad rough...distinguishing it from other stouts. Well done! ---Posted via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 RE_RATE 03/13. kept at 3.4 rating. not bad but me; could have more of a palate; I don’t get the smoothness of oats; finish is just slightly off/odd. 12 oz bottle to glass; purchased in CA during vacation. was looking forward to this one - overall a little dissapointed; nothing bad but nothing stands out. not much aroma - dark brown almost black pour. palate is medium with much light carbonation (if that makes sense). Taste has some powdery cocoa flavor to it with slight roast and maybe coffee. finishes slightly dry and bitter.

natejgood (480) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Pours a dark brown with a light beige head comprised of larger bubbles. Aroma of malts, raisins and chocolate. Light coffee flavor with a hint of dark bitter chocolate. Pleasant in the mouth and the flavor lasts and lasts. Plenty of body without being at all heavy, especially for an oatmeal stout.

Deep dark winter stout. Lots of coffee and creamy roastyness. The nose is a little soft. Pretty high carbonation might be adding to bitterness and taking away from something otherwise very very good.

Bottle. Pours very dark (filtered) red brown with some fine khaki head. Settles in minutes with sparse lacing. Aroma is roasted, sweet, oats/cereal, caramelized sugar. toffee. Flavor is mildly roasted, sweet, with a nutty, mildly roasted finish. Soft carbonation, medium body and smooth texture. A tasty, toasty oatmeal stout.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with fine off-white head, settles quickly with no lace. Aroma is roasted malt, mildly smoky, mildly nutty, sweet oat. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate up front, with a mildly roasted, smoky finish. Soft to moderate carbonation, medium-light body, and mildly smooth texture. Smokier than I recall, and not quite as smooth. A good oatmeal stout. Score: 3.7

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2013 Very enjoyable, rich, and smooth oatmeal stout. It taste just like its aroma predicts of malty coffee and chocolate. My favorite stout so far. Yum!!
