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.

Coffee and dark, bitter chocolate. Very drinkable, light body. Good lacing, my kind of stout-highly attenuated.

12 oz bottle. Aroma is nice and sweet: toasted marshmallows and chocolate. Pours opaque black with a medium collapsing tan head. Taste is sugary sweet (not cloying) and finishes bitter. Carbonation is average and the mouthfeel is, well, velvety. Delicious.

jrodooo5 (1457) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - APR 9, 2012
Pours an opaque black with a tan head that quickly fades into nice lacing. The smell is magnificently full of espresso notes and a touch of chocolate. The taste doesn’t quite equal the smell but is still very good! It’s pretty well balanced with bitterness hitting up front and leaving a nice velvety chocolate feel at the end. A very good stout but not quite the same as the bourbon aged merlin on draft.

daleharshman (1035) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 2, 2012
12 ounce bottle purchased a year ago at Total Wine in Las Vegas ($1.79). Pours a dark brown color with dark ruby highlights and two fingers of tan foam. Aroma of milk chocolate, coffee with vanilla creamer, and toasty-roasty and nutty malts. Flavor of creamy milk chocolate, roasted nuts, mild coffee, vanilla, some oatmeal, and a hint of ashy malts. A subdued sweetness really adds to the taste. Medium bodied with a nice smooth and creamy mouthfeel. A bit simple but works so well. (345, 682)

Terminus (3544) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 1, 2012
Tap at 1702 Tucson, AZ-pours deep brown almost black with a small tan head. nose is very char forward-char and not much else-maybe a little husky roast and chocolate, but very faint. flavors are similar but has a salty ote that is kind of odd. kind of different-lite body but that could make this a very session-able stout. lots of flavors for a beer of this body. decent but not great-must revisit again!

davey101 (750) - Connecticut, USA - APR 1, 2012
Bottled on 09/09/11. 12 oz bottle into a DFH signature glass. A - Pitch black body with a small one finger light mocha cap. Tight and small bubbling with low retention. S - Sweet milk chocolate, roasty malts, and light coffee. Simple, but amazing. One of the better noses on a beer I’ve encountered. T - Doesn’t live up to the nose. Milk chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and a slightly bitter and dry finish. A bit thin and plain. O - Damn, this beer had an excellent nose. The flavors and body are just above average for me. I wish I could buy this though, its a nice and simple oatmeal stout that does everything right. It doesn’t stand out, but its a safe bet.

[Bottle, thanks cbkschubert!] Pours dark brown with a nice brown head. Aroma contains a blast of coffee, and is a little one-dimensional, albeit not bad by any means. The taste has a nice mix of coffee, dark chocolate, deeply roasted malt, and a subtle, underlying sweet fruitiness that shows up as it warms. Very well integrated, with nothing coming across as rough, or out of place. Good mouthfeel, smooth, long finish. Overall, I was really impressed by how well this beer was put together, and I could definitely drink a lot of it in the fall and winter. Thanks again, Craig!
