COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full body and a well rounded flavor comes from a foundation of nine 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.

Licorice in the aroma... licorice and a grainy (in a pleasent way, not a bad way) flavor... I only had one... couldn’t really get a feel for it... I should probably try it again... not bad though!

bottle trade with RobertDale-then-on tap @Barley’s Brewhaus - Shawnee. Sharing some beers with RobertDale again, as he had traded a bottle of this after RBSG-StL, trying on tap too seemed a likely choice. Rich tan-black. A-roasty/chocolate-dk malt. T-roasty/chocolate-dk malt/oats, hint of hops.

jmohno (1137) - Iowa, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Black ,kaki head, light froth, lace. Cola chocolate aroma, planty herbal and leather, some hop or yeast funk, some dark berry. Sounds complex for an oatmeal stout. Really its fairly mild though overall. Taste is some mild roast, chocolate, some herbal planty citrus, caramel. smooth dark malts. Pretty good.Fairly rich.

AirForceHops (3526) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 20, 2014
12 oz. bottle thanks to GrandaddyKC, thanks Brad. Nice light fluffy foam on top of the pitch black stout. Aroma is toasted oats, roasted barely and mild earth tone.

The flavor is what you expect with a nice body from the oats no doubt, the flavor of the oats does’t come through but the chewy texture is there with a mild creaminess. Mild earthy hop for bitterness. Decent stout.

Aroma is chocolate and dark malts. The flavor is chocolate, dark/roasted malts, a low undercurrent of hops and an acidic/slightly sour fruit in the finish.

Bottle. A- Cocoa, chocolate, tobacco, alcohol. A- Black color, black liquid, tan head. T- Cocoa, bakers chocolate, roasty. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, roasty finish. O- Not bad, not great. There is a bitter lingering taste after a while that it not all that enjoyable but otherwise a decent beer. Not sure what it is with Kansas Breweries and putting bison on their Stout labels (see Tallgrass).

Received in a trade -- Poured into a pint glass. Shows up as an opaque brown/black, with small white bubbles. Aroma is faint molasses and wood. The taste starts out with a roast coffee, that fades to Chocolate and toffee. Very drinkable Stout with a creamy smoothness throughout.

Ibrew2or3 (7107) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 14, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a dark body that supports a thin dark tan head. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, a bit of burnt malts, some spicy black licorice and then sweet smelling blueberry jam and cherries. The taste starts with a pleasing modest richness that delivers sweet malts, some dark roasted malts, chocolate and then sweet prunes and cherry like fruity esters. It gets a tad spicy here and there with a black licorice type note. Pretty nice stuff.
