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 12 oz) Dark black with a thick tan head. Incredible amount of roast in the aroma. All I got was big roasted coffee and malts with some toasted oats. Rich and roasty flavor at the start. Tons of roasted chocolate malts with a very mild sweetness from the oatmeal. Didnít realize it was bourbon aged at the time. Very mild flavor of bourbon with a big roasted finish.

Dark brown with a huge tan head. Tons of dry malts and oatmeal flakes come through in the aroma and flavor. Some dark chocolate as well. I donít pick up on much bourbon, except for just a bit of sweetness that leads to a long, dry finish. Medium bodied with super smooth texture. If it were more available, it would be my new session stout. Good stuff!

>> This beer is do for a re-rate as it has improved dramatically over the years to become one of the best stouts on the market for the money and for the abv. It is dark, it has a rocky mocha head. The aroma is robust with mild coffee, smoke, cocoa powder, dark chocolate. Taste is bitter, never thin, with powerful roast and a silkier, dense body that puts many RIS to shame. Really, this is a masterpiece that we should all appreciate more.



355mL courtesy of argo0. This poured a deep brune with a medium tan head. Aroma of smoked meat, really a massive amount of smokiness. Taste is roasty, some milk chocolate, light, some tart lemon coming through. Fairly thin on the palate. No bourbon comes through. 12/21/2010 7/4/6/4/13=3.4

this one is good. at bevmo for 5.99 or something close. one of my favorite breweries.. wasnít expecting anything bad. didnít get anything i didnít expect. this brewery is hard. i drank all of em, but firestone really doesnít play around. donít make this impossible to buy later! limited release? donít do me like that. better stout than iíve had in a long time. this is a five value wise. a seven even. Iím just pretending i paid what i normally would for a beer of this quality.. thats why the 4.2 . makes no sense i know! lagunitas cappucino stout still wins but this is incredible for the price. donít limit me, paso robles.

Aroma is roasty, biscuit, oak, chocolate. Appearance is almost black with a hint of orange. Small tan brown head. Taste is roasty, chocolate, coffee, woody, oak, biscuit, creamy. Very unique and very creamy. Palate is medium + and incredibly smooth.... or as the name says, velvet-y. Overall an excellent oatmeal stout. Rich and complex. The best American made Oatmeal Stout I have had.

Smooth stuff. Looked great in the glass, dark color but didnít create much of a head. Nice cocoa aroma with some caramel. Nice long finish. Great winter beer.

Bottle thanks to kegergator on tbs. Pitch black with a nice khaki head. Wood, roasted malts, slight vanilla, and a smooth note of oats. Ridiculously smooth on the palate, huge roasted malts, light wood, coffee, and a great finish.
