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 the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center Denver 18/09/2010 Coffee roast aroma. Dark coloured a little rich on the palate strong in alcohol hoppy and fruity with a hint of dryness in a bitter coffee roast finish.

12oz extra given to my Craytonic, served in a Bruery tulip...A dark brown pour with a brilliant light tan head. At least six fingers of head rises and stays forever, tightly compact bubbles on this are great. Unbelievably thick lacing. This is a looker...A fairly muted aroma, lots of oatmeal, a little roast and bitter, pretty sweet. A little alcohol and the sweetness bring my score down a touch, not balanced enough...The taste is pretty muted as well, disappointed. Light roast, oatmeal, a little sweet chocolate cake. Better balanced, just not strong enough. The more I drink it the more I like it as its so easy to drink, yet flavorful. A nice full feel. Above average oatmeal, worth a shot.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2011 Smells like an oatmeal stout, tastes like an oatmeal stout; distinct coffee component. Very good example of a style I really like. Not getting any barrel character though. Goes down almost as easy as water.

Bottle at home. Pours clear black, with a slight reddishh flash, thick tan head, lacing is spotty to good. Aromas of fresh oats, cocoa-roast barley, nice licorice and graphite here too. Further nosing reveals a certain smokiness and minerality that I didn’t notice at first. Flavours of mouthfilling oats, very similar to the St. Ambroise, which I consider to be high praise. Nice inky, oaty, lightly roasty flavours, that persist into a long, slightly smoky finish. The oats and smoke finish it off 45 seconds later. A really classy stout that doesn’t try to do too much.

deyholla (6834) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle thanks to somebody, I forget but thanks! Pours black with a gray head that dissipated quickly to the edges. Aroma has a nice roasted malt note with a good amount of oat and just a bit of bourbon backing. Flavor starts with roasted malt and a bit of oats that blends nicely with the backing bourbon note. A nice beer.

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2011
12 oz bottle from Whole Foods - Pours a rich, dark black with a tan, foamy head. Very smooth. Starts out sweet and has a bitter aftertaste. Bourbon scent is evident. I think I got the tail end of this one, since it is already March, but it is still really good.

Barreras (1026) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Pours a deep purple almost black. Aroma of coffee, pine nuts, and bread. Taste of rich coffee and chocolate, with an aftertaste of hoppiness. Overall a decently smooth stout that was not as aggressive as it looks.

Lightly creamy, lighter feel, some apparent barrel character - some wood, boozy smudges, vanilla - some watery edges as the beer thins. Feels light at 5.5. Would love to knock this one down to session levels.
