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.

Pours black with a thin tan head. Roasty, smokey notes in the aroma. Roasty malt and dark fruit flavors, a hint of dark chocolate. The carbonation is a little strong, long bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beachmaster (195) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 5, 2015
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours black, with a very small tan head that quickly fades. Nose is cocoa and coffee, and the taste follows the nose. Very smooth, well balanced stout, with a creamy mouth feel and a nice short finish. Delicious.

Unbelievable oatmeal stout. Insanely big bodied and creamy, yet easy to drink and almost refreshing and crisp. Lots of toasted chocolate and coffee notes, and a bittersweet, slightly bitter and long chocolate finish. I love this beer.

Thanks Dan! Pours a dark chocolately brown with a quickly fading tan head. Aroma of coffee, oats, and leather (that I suspect is due to the bourbon). Slightly sour with weak flavors of chocolate and oats. Medium to watery body, with little and leaves little to write home about. Not a bad aroma, but relatively weak as it moves across the tongue.

Bottle. Wonderful aroma of cake, oatmeal, and espresso. However, the palate is quite weak. Slightly aqueous. Based on the palate, I would have expected this to be a full bodies beer, but it's a lot weaker than expectations. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle. Beige head tops a brownish-black body. Aroma is light coffee, chocolate, a good amount of oats, and some molasses as it warms. Taste is medium sweet and bitter. Flavor is roasted malt, wood, more coffee and chocolate, and drying bitterness. Some bourbon notes in the finish. Medium body and carbonation is bit fizzy for my tastes. Nice stuff.

tool2scream (188) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 29, 2011
Nice roasty flavors, oat sweetness, some malt bitterness. A pretty standard oatmeal stout but with some real oomph to it. Nice mouthfeel and texture, too.

12oz bottle. Pours black with a thick tan head. The aroma consists of caramel, roasty, chocolate, coffee, earthy, woody, nuts. Tastes semisweet with moderate bitterness and a slight astringency.

flylikeabanana (179) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle. Black pour with a fleeting tan head. Smells faintly of espresso. Taste is creamy chocolate, nutty malt, and a bit of coffee. Also tastes a bit flat; finish is dry and abrupt.
