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%

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 (1787) - 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 (199) - 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.

VatMasterson (52) - Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Pours thick and dark, good head and good lacing. Excellent Stout, sweet strong roast. Some chocolate, some slighter coffee, tastes concentrated. Most excellent proud bold flavor. A great Imperial stout.

GIJOE (688) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Pours black with a thin head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is dark roasted grain, molasses, hint of anise. Flavor is a beautifully balanced blend of burnt bitterness and malty sweetness. Thick and creamy mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Toffee aftertaste. Very nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

timjr2500 (3) - Boerne, Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2013 does not count
Dark as night poor with a deep red and brown head that lingers. Some protein in the head gives it lasting retention. Smells if rich chocolate and roasted nut. Taste is much the same as the smell but the real jewel is the mouthfeel that accompanies the taste. Creamy but not like a milk stout, more something of it’s own kind. Whatever it is, it makes you want to drink more and more. Even with it’s strong flavors it is drinkable and desireable. One of those beers that I can’t get enough of.

Good Texas brew! Dark. Laces glass with foam. Smooth head. Chocolate notes. Deep. A bit simplistic but nonetheless tasty. Not as deep as an Imperial Stout but very drinkable. Would have liked to have seen it taken further though.

Ratman197 (10216) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, bakers cocoa, light vanilla and a hint of coffee. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth. Flavors of bitter chocolate, roasted malt, smoke and light vanilla with a smooth lingering roasty smokey finish.
