(Backlog) Dark, black in color, beige to tan colored head. The smell is oats, chocolate, coffee, malts, and roasty. The taste is the same with slight coconut.

This was a pretty decent oatmeal stout, but it lacks the smooth, slick character of the oatmeal that I wanted.

jmikolich (1477) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2013
12oz bottle, pretty standard, unfortunately I could not find the oatmeal profile here, then again its not often that I can detect the oats, its smooth and easy drinking for 9%

Vcoggins (53) - Cypress, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Pours pitch black color with a nice 2 finger dense dark tan head. Smells of chocolate, caramel, molasses, light coffee, roasted malts. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, molasses, coffee. Slight bitterness from the roasted malts I suspect and not from the hops. Medium carbonation with a creamy, slick, really nice mouth feel. 9.2% ABV is there but well hidden. There is some warming on the finish. Overall this is an very nice oatmeal stout.

artmcd8 (1927) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle thanks to a local BIF. Pours a dark cola brown with no head, just a slight foam. Roasty aroma, some coffee and some fruity aroma of grapes. The taste is typical of the style and the mouthfeel is thick. On the verge of dry but still sweet. Light carbonation.

Steverus0 (209) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Tasted in a standard pint glass from draft at Alamo Drafthouse. Comes through with decent caramel notes (but I have a cold and this beer was probably a bit cool for the style. Flavors come through robust with caramel malts and chocolate in abundance. Oatmeal comes through, but a bit sweet which to my surprise is a positive here. Roasted barley and again the oats leave a pleasant but not quite full character lingering on the palate ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Decent beer. Pours a jet black with no head. Not a lot of aroma. A little toasty. The taste is where its at. A lot of oatmeal and very malty. The back end is where you get all of the taste.
