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 (12oz $1.75): Dark brown with small tan head. Aroma was strong burnt malts. (almost like ash). Taste is mellower than the original smell. Roasted malts with light cocao, coffee notes too. Pretty cream. Slight bitterness. Very good.

SlovakSniper (3429) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
Bouteille de 12 onces bue dans mon camp de chasse. Stout embouteillé le 25 septembre 2014. Brun est sa couleur avec un bon col qui perdure. Par contre, aucune dentelle n’est visible sur mon verre. Le nez est profond et presque sublime, chocolaté avec une touche de vanille, de la réglisse, du café et le parfum habituel de la céréale d’avoine rôtie. Le goűt me semble un peu moins riche. Ceci dit, il est tout de męme solidement agréable. Les malts rôtis développent des saveurs de caramel, de chocolat, de mélasse et d’avoine qui convergent vers des flaveurs de café. En bouche, le corps présenté est moyen-mince avec un pétillement modéré et une texture presque crémeuse. La finale est rendue amčre par les céréales maltées noircies. Trčs facile ŕ boire. Le genre de truc que je pourrais acheter réguličrement.

Bottle from Bert’s Solid dark brown black color with a decent sized tan head that shows moderate retention. Aromas of creamed coffee and chocolate dominate. Light earthy hop, cereal grain, and a faint pitted fruit round out the aroma nicely. The flavor is rich mocha with just a touch of vanilla. Light earth and fruit for posterity. Medium body with a creamy silky mouthfeel and a light level of carbonation. I could drink the hell out of these given half a chance.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2015 Bottle: The pour is a very dark brown, topped with a thin beige head. Rich notes of chocolate, roast, espresso, and vanilla permeate the air. Smooth… rich. The taste is heavy roast and lightly bittersweet cocoa. Lingering roast in the tail. Creamy texture.

12 oz. bottle purchased at the Beer Store, Nashua. Very dark brown / black with thin lasting head. Aroma is burnt espresso beans, chocolate, roasted nuts. The thing I love most is the creamy mouthfeel and the thicket body for such a low gravity stout!

Full body for a stout under 6 % ABV, real impressive! Chewy oats, solid chocolate malts with a mild bitter coffee finish. This is how an oatmeal stout should taste and feel. Very fine example and I only paid $2.10 for the bottle! I could drink 5 or 6 bottles easily in a session.

Burnt on nose. Too thin in body to be an oatmeal stout. Good chocolate flavor.

BroSpud (1773) - , Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2014
12oz bottle dated 9/18/14. Pours dark brown almost black with an off white head. Nice fall stout with woodsy notes of chicory, coffee and chestnuts. The oatmeal gives it a nice full body.Not bad.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle into a glass. Deep brown pour, somewhere between cola and coffee. Not much head to speak of. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, dark roasted coffee, Bit of a milk chocolate thing as it warms. Taste is creamy, rich, slightly bitter dark chocolate with roasted espresso notes. Nice balance of sweet and bitter with a constant deep roasted malt backbone always in play. Easy drinking, full of flavor.

Sejtelmesen áttetsző, kólaszínű testén egy vékonyka habfedő pihen meg hosszasan, mely alól a pörkölt kávés, földes étcsokoládés, tölgyfacsipszes aromák indulnak útjukra a palack felnyitását követően. Vagy nagyon régen, vagy még sohasem ittam ennyire krémesen lágy, tejszínesen selymes, bársonyosan puha sört, állagra tehát az egyik legjobb, amivel valaha találkoztam. Pirított karaktere kenyérhéjas, kávébabos jegyeket hordoz, majd füstös szárazságra és étcsokoládés kesernyére vált, mindezt azonban jótékonyan öleli körül az a zabos krémesség, ami az egész benyomást magával ragadóvá teszi. Bár a szimpla stoutok nem a gyengéim, ezt a típust bármikor örömmel kortyolgatnám újra.
