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.

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!!

Year old bottle poured black a quickly receding fizzy head, once settled with zero head all that remained was a very fine rim of lacing. Aromas of coffee, chocolate and toasted malts. Flavors of strong coffee, bitter chocolate, and smokey malts with subtle notes of hops. The finish is dry and smokey. I generally do not care for this beer but I feel it has gotten better with age, this has been an enjoyable session!!!

Huge thanks to LuvMtdew420 for sending me this beer. Dark inky black, tan head, looks like a stout should. Smell is oats, stout, chocolate, mmmm. The taste is very rich oats and chocolate, silky almost and really impressive. I really, really wish I could buy sixers of this because it’s probably the best low alcohol stout I’ve tasted so far. Good job FW. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-09-2011 20:28:46

Draft. Pours a medium, short lived beige head, with some lacing, over a clear dark brown (SRM 30) body.....nose is coffee, chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, light bourbon.....taste is chocolate, heavier coffee, cocoa, very light bourbon, vanilla, becoming slightly sweet, ending with a slightly harsh bitterness....mouth feel thick, creamy, carbonation adds light spritz. This is nicely balanced, complex and typical of the style. The finish is consistent with the increase in hops. BJCP 7/3/13/4/7
