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.

Bottle. Black pour. Nice flavor of chocolate and coffee. Great smooth mouthfeel. Velvet would be a good description.

Ernest (6540) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, cocoa powder), with light notes of chalk and vanilla. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Perfectly serviceable stout, but admittedly rough around the edges and lacking in depth and finesse. This is an ordinary "everyday" variety of brew that isnít trying to be much, and while that shows in both the simple/powdery/chalky nose and thin-ish/watery mouthfeel, itís still drinkable if thatís all the occasion requires.

hophead21112 (218) - Louisville, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Black pour, amber on the edges, tan head, good retention. Sweet roasted malt aroma with hints of chocolate & coffee. Medium body, light carbonation. Starts off sweet then slowly moves to dry and mildly bitter balancing it all out. Pretty good stuff.

12oz bottle 9/30/11 (Courtesy of RSRIZZO)-44į in English Pint-Pours black with a one finger tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt. Taste of coffee, chocolate, and slight bourbon. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty. Nice job.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - SEP 30, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a nearly opaque black color with a small tan head. The aroma features chocolate, mocha and spices. The flavor is similar to the aroma lots of chocolate and mocha nicely counterbalanced by spicy hops. The palate is full, smooth and creamy with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Kick ass stout.

tool2scream (188) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 29, 2011
Nice roasty flavors, oat sweetness, some malt bitterness. A pretty standard oatmeal stout but with some real oomph to it. Nice mouthfeel and texture, too.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2011
pours black with finger of tan head. Aroma of soft roast, char, some cocoa powder. Medium to full bodied, very smooth. Flavor is chocolate with traces of bourbon and rich espresso lingering on a long finish. Nice.

badhack (380) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Poured a dark brown, no sediment or floaties that I could see. Almost no head. Palate had some oatmeal creaminess but less than I expected. It had a very dark roast with quite a lot of hoppy bitterness that hit up front instead of in the aftertaste. Tasted of dark fruits, hints of sweatness and whisky (but without the alcohol). Smooth and a treat.

onceblind (5147) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Rich and dark with clear brown around the edges. Faint light beige head that doesnít last long. Shame. Aroma is rich and lovely. Rich dark chocolate and espresso aromas, with oak and whisky notes with an edge of smokiness. Taste was immaculate. Smokey dark chocolate and light espresso flavors, with some boozy flavors (but without the boozy warmth), and mild oak. Very smooth from the oats. Amazing.

Bottle via trade. Pours out a moderate brown color with a small white head. Aroma is lots of chocolate, some sweetened coffee, and light roast. Taste is chocolate, light sugary sweetness and a body a little thinner than Iíd like for my stouts. Not bad.
