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.

Poured very dark brown/ruby/black in color with a small, creamy, dense, tan head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of small and medium-sized particles throughout. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of roasted malt, oats, light coffee, light chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Roasted malt, light coffee, oat, and slight chocolate finish is dry.

On tap in "Guinness" imperial pint at Downey Brewing Co., Downey CA. Opaque brown/black with tan head that lasts. Not much to the aroma, some caramel and chocolate. Beautiful complex malt flavor- roast, chocolate, biscuit, vanilla. Not catching the barrel-aged influence, beyond the vanilla. Medium body. Substantial but not sticky or filling. Begs to be tasted again. This pint didn’t last long.

Tastes like a charred barrel. Dry and dark with plenty of wood and faint alcohol. Wasn’t as full bodied or chewy as I expect from an oatmeal stout. I thought this would be much heavier, but it was actually pretty thin on the mouthfeel (once you get past all of the burnt wood flavor). Faint coffee and dark chocolate, but mostly I taste the bourbon barrels.

Pours black as usual. minimal head. Nose is largely coffee like and chocolate, some malty breads, roasted malts, maybe cereal, not much bready malts, or fruity esters. Taste is coffee, roast, sweetness at first then fades to mild dryness. Bitterness complements. Smooth mouthfeel and full bodied. Good but not extremely complex...not that it really a should but I would bet my left nut that it has coffee added.

Thanks Dan! Pours a dark chocolately brown with a quickly fading tan head. Aroma of coffee, oats, and leather (that I suspect is due to the bourbon). Slightly sour with weak flavors of chocolate and oats. Medium to watery body, with little and leaves little to write home about. Not a bad aroma, but relatively weak as it moves across the tongue.

Oatmeal is very prominent. Silky smooth body with excellent texture. Very rich for the ABV - swear it’s 7% plus! Lots of bitter chocolate and caramel, with hte finished product being wholly integratred in a fascinating way.

Very good oatmeal stout at a great value. Only gripe was the lack of aroma, but pours beautiful with a dark thick head. Flavour its chocolate and caramel with a full body and a smooth finish from the oats. Highly recommended oatmeal stout.

12oz bottle pours a watery, opaque black with a cloudy, white head. Nose is malty, bready, reminded me of a doppelbock, chocolate. Flavor is sweet, malty, chocolate, bread, grains, light wood, light smoke. Medium bodied. Disappointingly average.

@Rudolph Throwdown-got in trade with jtclockwork-12oz bottle-pours a dissipating light brown head and black color. Aroma is sweet dark malt/oat-chocolate/roasty. Taste is sweet dark malt/oat-chocolate/roasty, secondary earthy hops. Soft carbonation.
