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.

12 ounce bottle from AJ’s in Phoenix. Black with tan ring. Chocolate licorice mild bourbon chocolate chip cookies aroma. Chocolate licorice subdued dark fruity oat tang espresso mild roast with very dry earthy woody bourbon finish. Very good. I hope session beers like this can make a comeback.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle, thanks to markwise for the share. Near black pour with a thin tan head. Roasty dark malt nose with big notes of coffee and chocolate, lighter notes of vanilla and earthy hops. Full body with a creamy mouth feel and good carbonation. Flavor is quite balanced between earthy bitterness, roasted dark malt, sweet chocolate, and coffee. Finishes moderately sweet with lingering coffee.

Bottle shared by Eric. Pours a dark brown color with a medium off-white head. A sweet milky cocoa and woody nose. The flavor is very interesting; dry rich caramel, smoky, light vanilla and bourbon, earthy chocolates and malts.

CampesinoTino (798) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2010
Bottle. Charcoal black in appearance with an inch of milky cappuccino head. The aroma is mostly charred and smoky roasted malt with some espresso and molasses in there as well. The taste starts with bitter coffee and roasted malt flavors along with dark chocolate, cola and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is soft and creamy with medium carbonation and a dry, roasty finish. There’s a pleasant burnt smokiness to the overall flavor that gives it a nice bite.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2010
12oz bottle from rhertan poured into a tulip. Pours deep, deep brown out of the bottle, sitting almost black in the glass. The head is small and tan, leaving streaks of lacing. Aroma is mainly toasted chocolate malt and oatmeal. There are hints of coffee and cocoa powder as well. Taste is more of the same and predominantly chocolate with bitter espresso and lactose with a healthy dose of oatmeal in finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and feels a tad thin, though it is a low ABV stout. This is a very drinkable if not very complex stout.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2010
Fresh 12 oz. bottle, 2010 vintage. Dark but translucent, the deep cola to mahogany brown body is topped with a small, smooth head of dark khaki foam. Fading away rapidly to just a thin outer ring, the head leaves minimal spotting and wet, diagonal flares of lacing behind. The nose is nicely balanced, showing a roasty dark cocoa malt base and toasted oats, with secondary notes of blackened caramel sweetness. Hops are primarily earthy but also suggest of some citrus. I don’t get any bourbon, per se, but there is a very faint scent of barrel char, while coffee serves to lend further roasted edge. Flavors follow suit, darkly roasted, dry and chocolaty, with loads of toasted oats and some black coffee. Caramel again lends just a bit of sweet roundness, but earthen hops are there to support the roasted malt in its campaign for dominance. Overall, nice balance is achieved. The palate sports a medium-plus body that clearly gets its heft from the oats, though carbonation is a little overly active and prickly for my tastes. That lively tingle ushers in a relatively dry body. Definitely one to be consumed fresh, this is a pretty solid session stout, though I don’t find it to be overly impressive in any facet.
