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.

Bif (1295) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head and only bits of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and fresh coffee. Has a deep rich coffee flavor with dark chocolate and roasted malt. Has a light bitterness and a dry finish. Body not quite as full as I expected but still rich and craemy. Nicely balanced. Enjoyable beer that goes down easy.

Very dark brown/black, with a small brown head. Aroma is nice, chocolate, coffee, burned malts, roasted bread. Taste is similar, roasted coffee, bit ashy/charcoal, some chocolate, maybe oats and a bit nutty. Decent carbonation, not that sweet, some bitterness. Overall it is pretty dark but with a creamy finish which makes it easy to drink. Nice stout.

Bottle poured into tulip during #bottlecherwednesdays at Beachwood BBQ Seal Beach. Appearance is clear, dark brown with two-finger tan head that leaves patchy lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, cereal, slight chocolate. Taste is similar with balancing herbal bitterness in the finish from the fuggles. Medium body, texture on the thin side, average to soft carbonation, and mildly bitter finish.

ljthiessen (159) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle. Lighter aroma for a stout, but complex and pleasant. Coffee and chocolate flavours, caramel, some dark fruits. Not the heaviest or most full-bodied stout, but tasty and very nicely balanced.

fraternie (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Dark as night, with roasted coffee and chocolate aromas. Thick and creamy, with a malt profile that leans towards the bitter edge of the mocha bean spectrum, with expressive espresso flavors dominating the rich body, with dark chocolate nuances creeping in through the wonderfully bitter finish. This is a beer that packs a lot of flavor for its sessionable abv, and you are all the happier for it. My only complaint is that the overwhelming bitter coffee notes cut the finish off a bit.

Pours a black brown color with a lacy light brown head notes of roasted malt, dark chocolate, Oreo cookie, and earth caramel hops. Very well balanced.

Black pour with a nice khaki head that slowly fades to a ring. Aroma is roast, milk chocolate, and a little coffee. Taste is dark roasted malts, and baking cocoa with a black coffee finish. Silky palate. Easy drinker.
