Bottle from gregwilsonstl, thanks for the opportunity! Solid black color with a smallish off white head. Roasty, earthy, cereal grain, light smoke and burnt sugar weigh heavy on the nose. Thick viscous creamy mouthfeel with a touch if alcohol. Light sweet brown sugary malt flavor with plenty of molasses, roast, and dark caramel. Light dark pitted fruit flavor with hints of ethanol and a light graininess. Medium to full body with a light level of carbonation. Huge big thick stout, I wasn’t quite expecting that from the oatmeal stout on the label, but very nice sipper on this cool fall night.

12 ounce bottle thanks to crajun! Yep, I know who my Secret Santa was! Kickass box! Dark brown, medium sized foamy brown head, decent retention. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate. The taste is roasted malt, chocolate, bitter hops, lactose. Medium bodied, very low carbonation, lingering bitterness.

12 ounce bottle poured into hefeweizen glass. Bit of a boozy aroma when colder than the correct serving temp. Bitter hoppy flavors at start when cold, however as the beer warms the aromas flavors open up to the malts and oats in the used for brewing. I suggest serving at the correct temp at the start. The body is creamy which is to be expected from an oatmeal stout.

Bottle at home, pours dark brown with little khaki head. Aroma is nice chocolate and coffee malts, slightly sweet, a bit of roast and char. Taste is dark chocolate, black coffee. This warms with some slight sweetness and a bit of oatmeal. Finishes slightly bitter. Heavy mouthfeel, high carbonation. Nice.

Bottle at Tortuga Flats. Pitch black with a generous dark tan head that leaves tight lace. Roast nose with chocolate and coffee over toffee and some dark fruit. Medium bitter chocolate with a warming finish. Medium creamy with soft carbonation.
