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.

[2985-20100627] Tap. Boozy coffee grounds aroma is all roasted malt. Clear, dark dark red brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Smooth coffee stout ground and heavy roast malt flavour has a lingering aftertaste. Full body is surprisingly smooth. Nice stout, thick and luscious.

MartinT (7797) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2010
My Bottom Line:
Chocolate and caramel malts profit from blackberry esters and vanilla undercurrents to develop a satisfying pint of Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the blackness with dark brown hues.
-This is another Firestone Walker brew with a round body. I donít find this one as coherent with the flavour profile as their strong aleís though.
-The tiny, prickly bubbles donít exactly gel with the portly dextrins.
-Light wooden hop bitterness seals each sip.

On tap at Toronado SF.

jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2010
2010-06-27. Very dark brown body with a tan head. Pleasant sweet aroma, light toasty malt character, sweet malt, hints at wood, something else I can not quite place, but I like it. 7+ Flavour is similar, mocha, mild roast and sweet malt core. Something that rounds everything up together nicely. Modest bourbon. 7+ Super smooth average palate is lightly carbonated and while lovely it is light for a stout. Pretty solid, everything just works well together. On Tap at Green Dragon, Portland.

Draught. Poured black with medium beige head. Much lacing. Aroma is oatmeal, roast and coffee. Full bodied roasty flavour, with a comforting oatmeal tinge. Lingering roast finish. Lekker!

BelgianBeerGal (3141) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Tap sample at the brewery. Very nice, rich and cholately stout. Very classic and Iím appreciative that they didnít cram it full of hops and crank the ABV up through 10. Thanks for not following the crowd.

neepsntatties (1207) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Had this a couple years ago at Portlandís Holiday Ale Festival and didnít rate it. Also had some yesterday at Baileyís Taproom in Portland, OR. Colour... nearly black with a thin khaki head. Nose... quite roasty with hints of Postum and day old coffee. Palate... thinner mouthfeel than I recall from a couple years ago but still plenty roasty with with bits if dark chocolate, dried chicory root, creme burlee, hints of Bourbon and a lengthy roasted finish.

DubC5000 (305) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 18, 2010
Light, airy, but not dilute. Mostly grassy hops on the nose, malt noted but not outstanding. Flavor nuanced, light, creamy, a good balance between malt and hops. As far as the less heavy beers go, this one was extremely refreshing.

Several 16oz samples on tap from the Davis Graduate. Aroma is very pleasant with some lightly sweet chocolate notes along with some metallic undertones. Nicely aromatic. Mostly transparent mahogany body present with a nice, bubbly orange-tan head. Starts sweet and quite chocolatey before it becomes somewhat roasted in the middle. Followed by a touch of woodiness, too. Very smooth-bodied, and extremely drinkable. Really, really, NICE! PS - I didnít appreciate much of the bourbon flavor from the barrel aging, and I am quite ok with this.
