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.

this one is good. at bevmo for 5.99 or something close. one of my favorite breweries.. wasnít expecting anything bad. didnít get anything i didnít expect. this brewery is hard. i drank all of em, but firestone really doesnít play around. donít make this impossible to buy later! limited release? donít do me like that. better stout than iíve had in a long time. this is a five value wise. a seven even. Iím just pretending i paid what i normally would for a beer of this quality.. thats why the 4.2 . makes no sense i know! lagunitas cappucino stout still wins but this is incredible for the price. donít limit me, paso robles.

Aroma is roasty, biscuit, oak, chocolate. Appearance is almost black with a hint of orange. Small tan brown head. Taste is roasty, chocolate, coffee, woody, oak, biscuit, creamy. Very unique and very creamy. Palate is medium + and incredibly smooth.... or as the name says, velvet-y. Overall an excellent oatmeal stout. Rich and complex. The best American made Oatmeal Stout I have had.

Smooth stuff. Looked great in the glass, dark color but didnít create much of a head. Nice cocoa aroma with some caramel. Nice long finish. Great winter beer.

Bottle thanks to kegergator on tbs. Pitch black with a nice khaki head. Wood, roasted malts, slight vanilla, and a smooth note of oats. Ridiculously smooth on the palate, huge roasted malts, light wood, coffee, and a great finish.

12 oz. bottle from Whole Foods in Bellevue. Fairly opaque, that is - the lets the slightest bit of light through it. This bottle is still very cold, but even given the circumstances, this has quite the roast aroma, and it is also quite pungent. Light pine hop aroma. There is only the slightest hint of oak aroma. Nice milk, roast, pine hop, and oak flavor. The oak actually comes through a lot more in the taste than the aroma. This has a nice texture. Itís starting to become more "woody". Overall, this is a solid stout.

Pretty much a black pour with some faint brown at the edges of the glass and a small, dense, tan head. The aroma is chocolaty and sort of musty with some leather and tobacco notes. Hints of coffee, vanilla, oak, raisins and rolled oats round out the smell. The flavor follows through pretty much from the aroma with a long, creamy milk chocolate body highlighted by notes of rolled oats, dark fruit, tobacco and some subtle noble hopping on the finish. Great mouth feel with a very velvety and creamy, but drinkable medium body and plentiful but soft carbonation.
