This is a full bodied oat stout. Whole malted oats are used for 10% of the grain bill. Roasted barley from the United Kingdom and chocolate malt make up 10% and the rest is two row barley. The whole oats leave behind a slightly nutty flavor. The coffee and chocolate flavors come from the roast and the chocolate malts.

PorterPounder (7404) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2006
Had on tap at the brewpub in downtown St. Paul. Dark black mocha, thick, creamy mocha colored head with sticky lacing. Aroma has hints of coffee and dark baker’s chocolate. Very earthy and flavorful. Good bitter background with prominent coffee and chocolate up front. Mouthfeel, thick and creamy, some good oiliness that feels just right. Cold and rainy night - wife describes this stout as "the beer equivalent of comfort food".

A respectable oatmeal stout. Black. Some smoke in the aroma; a standard oatmeal stout scent. Flavor is a little bitter, some more smoke. Very light chocolate and some coffee. More of a dry stout than a sweet stout.
