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.

Thanks Dan! Pours a dark chocolately brown with a quickly fading tan head. Aroma of coffee, oats, and leather (that I suspect is due to the bourbon). Slightly sour with weak flavors of chocolate and oats. Medium to watery body, with little and leaves little to write home about. Not a bad aroma, but relatively weak as it moves across the tongue.

Oatmeal is very prominent. Silky smooth body with excellent texture. Very rich for the ABV - swear its 7% plus! Lots of bitter chocolate and caramel, with hte finished product being wholly integratred in a fascinating way.

Very good oatmeal stout at a great value. Only gripe was the lack of aroma, but pours beautiful with a dark thick head. Flavour its chocolate and caramel with a full body and a smooth finish from the oats. Highly recommended oatmeal stout.

12oz bottle pours a watery, opaque black with a cloudy, white head. Nose is malty, bready, reminded me of a doppelbock, chocolate. Flavor is sweet, malty, chocolate, bread, grains, light wood, light smoke. Medium bodied. Disappointingly average.

Lightly transparent red-brown, thin beige cream head. Lots of cardboard. Lots of soy chocolate, bit of paper and oats. Thin body, plain. Ill pass next time.

(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. Didnt realize it was bourbon aged at the time. Very mild flavor of bourbon with a big roasted finish.

Courtesy of Daknole!
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 dont 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!

UPDATED: APR 30, 2014 > The superlative easy to find, cheap, low abv roasty stout

[ Bottle ][ Texas Liquor ][ 12oz ][ $1.50 ][ Russian River Nonic Pint ][ 4/29/14 ]
>> 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
