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.

acearl (409) - 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

asheft (2668) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
On cask at Rattle ’N’ Hum, NYC. Licorice, soy sauce, and mocha aroma with faint nuts and red fruit. Almost opaque garnet-black under a tan island and ring. Sweet mocha flavour with sweet licorice and horehound. Somewhat weak flavour, low bitterness. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth.

Chadski4 (157) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 17, 2015
Chocolate and coffee aromas which then flow nicely into the flavors. Just the right amount of hoppy bitterness in the finish.

Savage_Night (39) - California, USA - APR 5, 2015
Pours a dark rich brown with a brown/off white head. Head retention is poor. Aroma of malt, coffee, spice, clove, slight hop bitterness and caramel. Amazing flavors of coffee, caramel, vanilla, smoke, spice, chocolate, cereal, hop bitterness and slight pepper. Leaves a silky buttery feel in the mouth with a slight coffee after taste. This is a must try but it is limited so don’t delay.

peterschreurs (79) - Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Poured from the bottle. Dark brown with a small lite brown head that faded quickly. Smells like wet oatmeal, coffee, and cocoa. Roasted malt dominates the palate at first but it slowly mellows out with caramel and vanilla. Medium body, nice beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Pours pitch black with a medium tan head and just a little bit of head retention. The aroma is slightly metallic but also has some vanilla and mocha notes. The flavor is really the showstopper here as it just unleashes mocha, caramel and vanilla along with having a silky (or velvet) smooth mouthfeel. A great example of the style and a wonderful beer.
