Pours dark brown with a faint head. Smell is chocolate, A robust roasty flavour with light chocolate and hop characters, Not a bad porter. I had good judgement buying this beer.

doubleipa (224) - Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2006
Nice crown head on top of the black body. A good amount of lacing. Typical aroma for a porter: coffee, burnt, toasted, but little in th eway of hops. Didn’t smell much that would label this an "oatmeal" porter. I would’ve expected a little more bread/dough aroma. Taste was good, but not great. A nice little bit of coffee in the long finish.

Pours black with a thin light head and good lacing. Smells roasty. Tastes very roasty with a little dark chocolate bitter/sweetness. Thinner mouthfeel than expected, but a pleasant surprise. Enjoyable.

beerandrugby (210) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2005
bottle. poured out an enticing rich, super dark rugby, nearly black. Foamy tan head, lasted and laced nicely. initial chocolatety malt that turns to toasted, roasted finish. The hops were not very prevalent in the finish but it has a nice overall finish. I liked how the malt was not very sweet and highlighted the toasted flavor.

12 oz bottle: pours a very dark brown/black with a fluffy tan head. the aroma is of roasted malt, chocolate with hints of citrus and coffee. nice dark chocolated roasted bitterness with some grapefruit and more chocolate. very nice creamy mouthfeel. a nice burntness on the end.

firemarshal (204) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle. Poured a very dark brown with minimal tan head. Great chocolate coffee aroma. Taste was everything I hoped for. Great malty flavor balanced well by the dark roast. Initial sweetness fades to light bitter aftertaste, but smooth overall. Good stuff.

molassesfan (202) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 20, 2007
Pours near black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted sweetened coffee. Taste is more of roasty chocolate. Hops are restrained for a lighter finish. Creamy but thin. A decent offering.

ATOmemphis (200) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Well I enjoyed this beer directly after having the Stout. This was a deal more malty and sweet via the Oatmeal but tasted entirely too similar to the Highland Stout. I enjoyed this, but it isn’t there best brew.
