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 chocolate notes. Dark with a light head and some lacing. Body is a bit light for my liking, but good for an oatmeal. Finishes very clean. Nice balance. Sessionable stout candidate.

Bottle at Q-Brick. Black with a great, fine, tall head. Rich malt aroma, oats, grains, light berries. Meaty and moreish flavor, grains, light roasting, light fruits, cream. Smooth, full palate. Quite sweet, but with a nicely bitter hop finish. Lovely.

Fatalstrike (130) - Cerritos, California, USA - OCT 22, 2011
This is probably my favorite beer from Firestone. It just does everything right. Smells like a stout should - roasted coffee and chocolate. Pours a pitch black with a very nice tan foam. Tastes like it smells - sweet chocolate upfront with a dash of molasses giving way to roasted coffee and finishing with a balanced earthy hop note. Such an awesome little stout. Stock up on this while you can!

Crushed at Liquids and Solids. Dark black pour with a reddish tint in the light. Aromas and flavors of dark chocolate and coffee roast. Medium bodied with a huge flavor. Excellent.

yackery (159) - California, USA - OCT 21, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2011 Draught. Very dark reddish brown body just a couple of shades lighter than opaque under a frothy off-white head that dissolves to a pinch of sand on thin black-ice and lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is appetizing - baked fudge brownie, toasted grain (maybe oats cereal) - with some metal shop flecks, and a note of hair tonic with hints of mewn grass - bottom of mower and all. Taste carries aroma well. It is quite bitter, and bittersweet. Palate is creamy with fine, lively carbonation and body is full. Very good beer.

Poured from 12 oz., picked up at Trader Joe’s. Poured a nice dark brown with a large tan head. Nice roasty nose, complex, with hints of coffee and chocolate. Mouthfeel was indeed creamy, full and heavy bodied, with a nice long finish. What I like most was that you often have a higher alcohol beer with something as good as this.

notalush (5351) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Pour is dark brown - high, fizzy carbonation - a fair amount of tan lace - nose of espresso, bittersweet chocolate, licorice, a bit of hard water mineral/chalk - the carbonation is a bit too high at first, not giving you themcreamy texture you really want, but it settles after a while and is a little more mellow - a tiny bit watery, but the flavor is good - medium dry and moderately bitter - baker’s chocolate and espresso - a bit of vanilla and anise - slight mineral - dry, semi-tart finish, with a touch of earthy, woody character - opens up considerably as it warms, adding a warm, spicy character - a damn fine stout, just needs a tad more heft to launch it into awesome territory.

dmac (4677) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Bottle shared by Dean. Poured a super dark brown body of medium density under an average sized light beige super tight bubbly head. Aroma of oats, grassy hops, chocolate, bread crusts, milk and a slight hint of metal. Body is a bit on the thin side with very strong carbonation and an average duration on the finish. Flavor of grass, chocolate, lactose, tobacco, earth, nut shells. Very solid aroma/flavor but the palate is to thin/carbonated.

RSRIZZO (1899) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2011
12oz bottle poured into an English Pint at 45°. Color is black with light carbonation and a thin wispy head. Aroma is an earthy roasted malt scent. it has a mild medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is deeply roasted with coffee notes, chocolate and a mellow bitterness. After taste is a mellow lingering bitterness. Overall it’s just an ok Stout, seems a little light and they (Firestone Walker Brewing) say its an Oatmeal Stout, so its just not as creamy I think as it should be.
