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.

As good as any Oatmeal Stout out there. Tastes of Chocolate, espresso, and a roasted nutty flavor. Smooth, creamy texture. Highly drinkable. Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great coffee stout, rich heavy body, carries well into the finish, smooth and creamy, almost like coffee cold brew, slightly alcohol tasty notes.

Drake (8503) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run, 5/24/14. Pours a dark brown color with a large tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of nutty notes, chocolate, roast, oats, mild hoppy finish. The taste is chocolate, roast, dark fruits, roasted malts, mild coffee and a touch of vanilla. Thin-medium bodied, smooth, low carbonation, mild lingering bitterness. Quite a nice beer.

GTAEgeek (1206) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 10, 2014
12 oz. bottle, thanks to TheHOFF43. Pours black, with a medium, fizzy, tan head. The aroma is smooth coffee, milk chocolate, light hickory, peat, cinnamon, and syrup. Sticky sweet, with a nice, roasty bitterness. Heavy body, a little clingy, and a little chalky, but generally smooth and relatively clean for a stout. This is a nice, balanced, and very well made stout.

GSH1976 (207) - Delaware, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Pours a dark brown with minimal khaki colored head and no lacing. There is a nice roastiness in the aroma along with some dark chocolate and coffee notes. Taste follows the nose. Smooth but the body is on the light side and the finish is dry and slightly bitter. Carbonation is also low making this a very easy drinking beer. Firestone Walker produces excellent beers.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle at Gilly's Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD. Opaque brown-black with a small khaki head and good lacing. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and roasted malt.

Had to try this in anticipation fo velvet merkin I have in my basement. Smooth roasty malt flavors. Didn’t get much of a typical sweet oatmeal flavor that I am used to in a specifically oatmeal stout but either way a nice rich malty drink.

Darwenus (549) - Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Pours jet black but thin, and the head fades quickly. The aroma is coffee atop rich, smooth malt. Maybe a little hops, too. The flavor is just the same, and that’s a good thing. A little chocolate, a little dark bread. Crisp finish, not a heavy stout at all but a satisfying one.

Chocolate nose. Taste is chocolate, roasty, granola. Alchohol and bitter-sweet on the finish.
