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.

deyholla (8114) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle thanks to somebody, I forget but thanks! Pours black with a gray head that dissipated quickly to the edges. Aroma has a nice roasted malt note with a good amount of oat and just a bit of bourbon backing. Flavor starts with roasted malt and a bit of oats that blends nicely with the backing bourbon note. A nice beer.

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2011
12 oz bottle from Whole Foods - Pours a rich, dark black with a tan, foamy head. Very smooth. Starts out sweet and has a bitter aftertaste. Bourbon scent is evident. I think I got the tail end of this one, since it is already March, but it is still really good.

Barreras (1261) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Pours a deep purple almost black. Aroma of coffee, pine nuts, and bread. Taste of rich coffee and chocolate, with an aftertaste of hoppiness. Overall a decently smooth stout that was not as aggressive as it looks.

joet (2385) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Lightly creamy, lighter feel, some apparent barrel character - some wood, boozy smudges, vanilla - some watery edges as the beer thins. Feels light at 5.5. Would love to knock this one down to session levels.

Beerman6686 (5321) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2011
This poured a very dark brown color with a beige head. Aroma was deep roasted malts, light bourbon and some chocolate too. Flavor was much drier than I was ainticipating from the aroma. Dry bourbon and roasted mlat and hardly no aftertaste. Interesting.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Appearance: black with dark brown highlights. Swirls with spotty khaki bubbles, leaving a collar in its wake.
Nose: roasty with dark fruits. Burnt, toasted oats. Figs and dates. Sense of ancient forests with twigs, sticks, and dirty earth. Black root.
Palate: clean forward flavors of roasted oats along with chilled chocolate covered oats. Burnt, ashy, and woody which dries tongue and mouth. Figs and dates are both dry and meaty. Pleasantly sessionable.
Final Thoughts: a straightforward oatmeal stout which is highly sessionable and screaming for some raw oysters.

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAR 2, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a black which looks cola brown at the edges when held up to the light. Two finger light brown head which dissipates pretty quickly and leaves a very small amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted coffee, light earthy hops, and light dark chocolate. A bit of vanilla and licorice comes out as it warms up. Initial taste is roasted coffee going into light dark chocolate with some hints of vanilla and licorice. The finish has a slight tea-like bitterness. Don’t really get any bourbon. Medium body. Low carbonation. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty standard for an oatmeal stout. Pretty great beer, especially for the cos.

StoutFest (77) - Stoutville, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Above average on the carbonation. Thin to medium bodied. You can see through this one. Aromas of chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is similar to nose with some lingering soft roast flavors at the end. Thin, watery , and clean mouthfeel.
