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.

Black with a small head. Aroma is black coffee and roasted nuts. Flavor is bitter and roasty, but actually very approachable. The mouthfeel is very thin, which is the only thing Im taking away points for. However, compared to some other stouts Ive had recently, this is just underwhelming. Its still very good though.

Pours very dark brown with an average amount of whitish head that is gone before you know it. Roasted coffee is the dominant aroma, with some chocolate and oatmeal sourness in there. Taste is similar, with more of the oatmeal malt going with the coffee well. Earthy, with some dirt in both nose and taste. Carbonation is minimal but adequate. Very solid mouthfeel feeds into the great finish of the malty coffee. Drinkability is excellent. Very good oatmeal stout.

12 oz bottle. I can smell chocolate, coffee, dark malt. Flavor is complex and rich as the description states. I can identify vanilla notes, coffee, oatmeal, and a little bourbon. Very tasty.

On draft. Dark creamy pour with a slightly brown bubbly head. A lot of chocolate in the aroma, along with roasted malts and oats. Creamy mouth feel along a slight milk lactose flavor. Very enjoyable.

Bottle. Picked up a six pack the other day while in San Diego to give it a try. Poured into a pint glass a dark brown color with a light tan head. Nice aroma in the nose of roasted coffee, slight chocolate, some vanilla, and a tad bit of leather. Nice and smooth medium mouthfeel. The creaminess of this is really its shining star, it just drinks so smooth for me. The flavors are a nice balance as well between sweet and roast bitterness. Starts with a nice sweetness of chocolate and vanilla that is nicely rounded out with some roast bitter flavors along with some subtle muted hops.

Nice dark head body. Flavor is good. Roasty up front, but a middle-bodied finish. Pretty good but not a wow beer for me.
