The flavor is big on coffee and chocolate. There is a great malty profile that is right on the verge of bitter, but doesn’t quite cross that line. The hops are more pronounced in the flavor than in the aroma. The oatmeal gives it a silky mouthfeel and medium body. Quite complex and rather enjoyable.

This is a good porter. It pours a nice deep brown, has a robust nose of oats and a definite bittersweet, roasty, coffeelike finish. It’s a nice effort and I would purchase again.

I've been a little spoiled with dark beers, but I really see an oatmeal beer having greater depth than this porter brings to the party

This oatmeal porter has everything; it is grainy, bready, chocolaty, intense with coffee, and very drinkable. Nice bittering finish.

Dark brown with big, foamy, tan head, good legs / Nose of sour malt, coffee, and chocolate / Medium body, a touch thin, creamy, good balance and bitter finish / Somewhat weak, but smooth and otherwise rich flavors of dark roast coffee, bittersweet chocolate, grass, and lemon / A solid, if undistinguished, porter.

Draft at Proof. Almost black pour with a creamy tan head. Light roasted and chocolate malts with a touch of sweet creaminess. Good roasted and dry chocolate flavor with a nice bitterness with a quick dry finish. Not too shabby and easily drinkable.
