Tap @ Free State. Dark brown color pour. Aroma of roast, distant coffee, some molasses. Very complex flavor. Not what I expected. Roast, bread, coffee, woody hops. Nice bitter finish. Very good. Lots of hop character in the finish. Woody.

Had on tap at the brewpub while visiting the university. Smooth and creamy, but not deep, complex, or roasty enough. Has a smokey-bacon type flavor... on purpose? Doubtful.

Growler from Kerrianne our wayword son, the Lawrence drug mule, with many thanks. Superb traditional oatmeal stout nose with lots of chocolate and oats. Taste is very smooth with almost no viscosity. Great back-end taste profile. I can feel my cholesterol going down as I type.

Black pour with brown tint, tan head with beautiful lacing. Aroma is the norm of roasted malts of coffee, caramel, and chocolate. Flavor starts sweet, finishes bitter. Unfortunately, this had a metallic aftertaste but at least it didn’t linger...velvety and smooth otherwise.

Draft at the brewery. OG 1061 IBU 42. Pours a lasting head with slight lacing, over a blackish brown (SRM 20) clear body.....nose of coffee, chocolate, beef very rich......tastes of roasted malt, mild bitterness, coffee cocoa, dry throughout.....mouth feel rich and creamy. A nice example of oatmeal stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Free State during the 20th anniversary. Pours a very very deep brown, almost black body with a good looking, full and fluffy, tan head that dissipates very slowly and remains nicely laced. Soft, but solid aroma. Some light smokiness, swift roasts, sweet caramel malts, and some creamy light chocolate hints. Flavor is very soft and delicate as well. Good amount of sweet coffee roasts as well as a subtle smokiness. Light milk chocolate and a bit of astringent citrus in the end. Slightly chocolate, smokey, light bitter aftertaste that lingers for a good amount of time. Palate is very smooth thanks to the oats and medium bodied. Overall, a really nice oatmeal stout. Full of flavor and gets better as it warms. Nice body and aftertaste. Really glad I came to this brewpub.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2008 Hey they made an Oatmeal Stout and forgot the oatmeal. Pint pour @ brewpub served way too freaking cold. A completely black body with an off-white head. Aroma is thick grassy herb matliness. Taste is a bit astringent mineral and root plant. Not sweetness at all, no oatmeal, very basic and uninteresting.6/3/6/3/13
Re-rate: Much better this time. Aroma is lightly sweet and slick tobacco with light burnt roast. Taste is lightly ashy with a bitter hop finish. Much better, basically a different beer than the first time. I will change the rating to this. 7/4/7/3/15

Hand bottled courtesy of BBB63. Consumed early summer ’06. Appears black until held to light, transparent brown almost, minimla tan head. Aroma slightly muted. Faint coffee, milk choclate and roast. Flavor much the same, roast shows up a tad more. Some residuel sweetness through the middle. Finishes very clean and dry in a way. Almost no aftertaste. Just average.
