COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full body and a well rounded flavor comes from a foundation of seven different grains. The oats add a special silky texture that complements the roasted malts. The rich malty flavor is spiced with plenty of Northern Brewer and Fuggles hops for balance.

A very decent oatmeal stout. One of the better of the standard bottled offerings from Free State. Rich maltyness with a smooth thick body.

EtTuCthulhu (991) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUN 15, 2014
The appearance of this beer is a very, very dark brown color that is opaque due to its darkness, and it has a small tan head that fades quickly. The aroma blends roasted, caramel, and chocolate malts with vanilla, and the flavor is a nice blend of mild umami, slight sourness, slight malt bitterness, and a touch of sweetness. The mouthfeel has a thin texture, medium-light body, soft carbonation, and a malty finish.

An ok beer. I would say average or a hair above for an oatmeal stout. But no need to buy again any time soon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thegreenrooster (3154) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Pour is a black with a small tan head. Aroma is a nice roast with a ever so slight hop presence. Flavor is a nice oatmeal roast with a bit of pine hops. The roasted oatmeal malt really shines here. The hop additions make this even better.

Bif (1379) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2013
On tap at Shamrocks. Served a deep brown color with a thick foamy head that faded slowly to ample lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malt, bit of grain and nuts in the background. Taste is malty with semi-sweet dark chocolate, roasted malt, bit of nuts and a hint of dark fruit in the background. Subtle bitterness and a finish that is quite clean. Full body, smooth and creamy, almost silky. Nicely balanced. Enjoyable beer that is an easy drinker.
