Very smooth, chocolatey, delicious stout. The taste really stays with you. That chocolate malt lingers on the palate well. Not an undesirable lingering taste. Exceptional. The only way you could make this better is to make it a Velvet Merkin.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours dark black with tan head, smells of milky sweetness, coffee and chocolate. Taste is much the same with a touch of bitterness that keeps it in balance, very smooth with a good thick mouthfeel and lively carbonation for a stout but finishes a bit dry with some cocoa lingering on the palate. One of the best oatmeal stouts on the market today

Draft at GABBF: Poured a brown black with tan head. Aroma was sweet with chocolate. Taste was a pleasant mix of cocoa and strong bitter coffee bean, smooth but dry finish.

12 oz bottle poured. Bottled 12/18/14. Pours black with a big cola fizzy head. Roasted coffee flavor, but semi mild. Chocolate finish. Somewhat a typical stout in my opinion, but all is good nonetheless. Roasted malt aroma from a distance. Thick, creamy body. Not bad.

Just an ok oatmeal stout. Pours a thick black with a grey head. Smells of oatmeal and a bit of vanilla. Taste is standard, nothing to write home about. Creamy, with some vanilla. Tasted at the Black and White Beer Ball for SF Beer Week.

(Tap) Very smooth. The only downside is it tastes pretty flat. Otherwise nice and smooth and nice.
