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.

ljthiessen (411) - 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.

RyanMM (411) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Pours nearly opaque, black, with a medium mocha head. Moderate lacing, really nice retention. Nose is rich, chocolaty, mild coffee notes. Rich, velvety as all get-out. Sweet with some nice lactose, and just a hint of barrel-aged character. Really damn good. Very glad to have been able to try it.

beergodd1 (400) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Pours a 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, with a healthy dose of oatmeal in finish to make it very creamy. The mouth feel is light to medium bodied and feels a tad thin, though it is a low ABV stout. This is a very drinkable. I wish I wouldn’t have threw in my other one as an extra in a trade.

natejgood (391) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Pours a dark brown with a light beige head comprised of larger bubbles. Aroma of malts, raisins and chocolate. Light coffee flavor with a hint of dark bitter chocolate. Pleasant in the mouth and the flavor lasts and lasts. Plenty of body without being at all heavy, especially for an oatmeal stout.

acearl (391) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2013
12 oz bottle poured into English pint, pretty much a black pour, tan creamy diminishing head, minimal lacing, smells roasted, some chocolate, texture is medium, not as thick as would be expected, feels like its missing something like some hops, finish is kind of sour, bit disappointing, least from FS I've had as they are typically stellar, it's an oatmeal stout the barrel aged version seems like it would be better

Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2011
12 oz bottle from Whole Foods - Pours a rich, dark black with a tan, foamy head. Very smooth. Starts out sweet and has a bitter aftertaste. Bourbon scent is evident. I think I got the tail end of this one, since it is already March, but it is still really good.

BrewGoblin (386) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Finally, someone bottled wizard blood! This potion pours black with hints of dark plum which I swear is the magic part. Either that or liquid velour. It smells of cocoa, molasses and super espresso and delivers taste-wise with that and nuts, dark toffee and some peaceful hops, just sitting in an armchair by the fire and letting the malt magic manifest. Feels a bit syrupy but not sickly so.
