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.

Black with a small head that gave no lacing. Roasted coffee, cocoa, cream nose. Taste is roasted malts with very little bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel. Nice brew, not my favorite stout though.

Draft at GABBF: Poured a brown black with tan head. Aroma was sweet with chocolate. Taste was a pleasant mix of cocoa and strong bitter coffee bean, smooth but dry finish.

12 oz bottle poured. Bottled 12/18/14. Pours black with a big cola fizzy head. Roasted coffee flavor, but semi mild. Chocolate finish. Somewhat a typical stout in my opinion, but all is good nonetheless. Roasted malt aroma from a distance. Thick, creamy body. Not bad.

Just an ok oatmeal stout. Pours a thick black with a grey head. Smells of oatmeal and a bit of vanilla. Taste is standard, nothing to write home about. Creamy, with some vanilla. Tasted at the Black and White Beer Ball for SF Beer Week.

Dark body, tan head. Aroma of strong coffee and dark chocolate. The flavor adds some earthy hops and some smooth sweetness. Nice balance, silky mouthfeel.

02/04/15 From 12 oz bottle dated 12/11/14. Very dark with thin head that disappeared quickly. Nice espresso smell and taste but a little thin and watery. Good but didn't get the oatmeal flavor aroma or feel and a bit watery. Lightly hopped without much bitterness. Easy to sip. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
