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.

Pours dark brown with a nice tan head with good retention. Aroma is roasted grain, leather, brown sugar and a hint of vanilla. Roasty burnt malt flavor, some light bittering on the finish. Definitely salty, chocolate, licorice, and toasted grain flavors. Medium bodied with a lasting flavor. Tasted from the bottle @ 57F.

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle thanks to funkybrewster. Pours a very dark brown, creamy, with a fine frothy head. Very roasty aroma with just a bit of creamy vanilla oatmeal, nothing striking about the aroma but well balanced. Flavor follows, very well balanced, plenty of roast, dark cookie, noticeably hopped, not really citrus but certainly fuggles, little bit slick, quicker finish with a bit of acidity. Medium bodied, sharp carbonation, slightly creamy slick oily. Really solid beer but doesn’t get me going.

VertBaconStrips (2060) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2011
On tap at Horse Brass back in Nov 2010. Ultra dark brown brew with a decent ultra light brown, silty ring. Vanilla nose with chocolate, almond, coffee, cream, oak and roasted malts. OK aroma of roasty things with bitter chocolate and vanilla. Had a long bitter and drying finish. Just a bit better than average. Then again , it’s 10:30AM...

12oz. btl bought from Nugget Market. Poured into tall tulip glass. Pours a dark brown/black with a tan colored head. Some carbonation still apparent after dissapation. Aroma is heavy with coffee, toffee, molasses and chocolate. Taste first starts off with the subtle bitterness that coffee endures. Well balanced sweetness met with pleasant bitterness. Smooth and creamy on the palate, aftertaste of roasted malts and coffee beans. I would def buy this again when able to, a quality beer that comes in 6pk form.

Ughsmash (7087) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Bottled. Poured deep cola brown with a fine cap of tan head.. looked good in the glass. The aroma was sweet and very toasty, with black malts, chocolate, and vanilla leading the way.. sweet and decadent. The flavor found very lightly-smoked black malts and smooth rolled oats at the core.. vanilla was laced throughout.. just a kiss of bourbon accented perfectly on the back-end.. delicious stuff! Medium-bodied and well-balanced on the palate.. very smooth feel to it.. loved it!

Bottle:   Deep cola, nearly black, large pillowy light brown head, nice lacing.   Nose of molasses, graham cracker, soft hops and burnt malts.   Smidgen of chocolate as well.   Sweet mealy malts on the tongue, very toasty, hint of dryness.   Smooth, not terribly malty.   Could stand to be a bit heavier, at least more "Velvety".   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Drops off quickly, very slight lactose like presense on the backside.   This is one very pale, and clean Oatmeal Stout.

12oz bottle. Poured a deep black, with a tan/brown head that dissipated quite fast. Coffee, roasted malt, and dark chocolate on the nose with a hint of vanilla and oak. The palate was a bit too light imo. Flavors follow the nose with lots of coffee, roast and cocoa. The beer also left no lacing at all. Nice beer overall, and wouldn’t expect anything less from FW.

Tried on tap at the Monk. Real smooth at the start, this was a solid beer , liquorice, grains and coffee in the taste. Could drink plenty of these.
