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.

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.

acearl (386) - 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

CLevar (376) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Bottle from Armin. Thanks! Pour is a fairly dark brown, with a very light brown head that quickly fades to very little lacing. Aroma is light chocolate, lots of light malt, nothing overpowering. Taste is huge oatmeal up front, with some dry coco powder on the back. Fairly dry, if somewhat chalky, finish. Nice beer.

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAR 2, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a black which looks cola brown at the edges when held up to the light. Two finger light brown head which dissipates pretty quickly and leaves a very small amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted coffee, light earthy hops, and light dark chocolate. A bit of vanilla and licorice comes out as it warms up. Initial taste is roasted coffee going into light dark chocolate with some hints of vanilla and licorice. The finish has a slight tea-like bitterness. Don’t really get any bourbon. Medium body. Low carbonation. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty standard for an oatmeal stout. Pretty great beer, especially for the cos.

Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Pours dark with creamy mocha scent. Malts in the nose. Roasty malt taste but lighter than what I am used to. To be honest, I had this later in an evening of beer tasting after some heavier stouts and it feels like I should have started with this. A decent stout but there are better out there.
