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.

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.

HuskerTan (750) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle. A- Roasty, smoke, char, dry cocoa. A- Black color, dark liquid, light brown head. T- Charred, smoke, roasty, dry cocoa. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, dry finish. O- Pretty darn underwhelming. Lots and lots of dry roastiness and a char smokey character to it. Not going to lie. I imagined it to be a lot smoother and more of a coffee taste to it.

katrinaez (537) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2015
For only 5.5% this is really flavorful and rich. Nice coffee scent and slight bitter but the flavors of chocolate raisin and cassis power through. Thick mouth with velvet and heavy stomach. Tap

BeerFunGuy (838) - California, USA - JUN 1, 2015
This beer pours deep dark black with almost not head coconut and chocolate in the aroma. Great flavor and very rich only thing it had a slightly metallic aftertaste. I think the bottle we were drinking was a little older than intended but still a very very good beer. Decadent flavors and very drinkable.

On cask at Rattle ’N’ Hum, NYC. Licorice, soy sauce, and mocha aroma with faint nuts and red fruit. Almost opaque garnet-black under a tan island and ring. Sweet mocha flavour with sweet licorice and horehound. Somewhat weak flavour, low bitterness. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth.

Chadski4 (164) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 17, 2015
Chocolate and coffee aromas which then flow nicely into the flavors. Just the right amount of hoppy bitterness in the finish.

Savage_Night (86) - California, USA - APR 5, 2015
Pours a dark rich brown with a brown/off white head. Head retention is poor. Aroma of malt, coffee, spice, clove, slight hop bitterness and caramel. Amazing flavors of coffee, caramel, vanilla, smoke, spice, chocolate, cereal, hop bitterness and slight pepper. Leaves a silky buttery feel in the mouth with a slight coffee after taste. This is a must try but it is limited so don’t delay.
