UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 12 oz bottle compliments of Crajun. Pitch black pour. Aroma of dark chocolate and some coffee. Thick & chewy mouthfeel. Chocolate and raisin upfront, black licorice finish. Thick on the tongue, the way an oatmeal should be. Will seek out more of this! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Man, I love this stout. Probably one the best in the state. Nice roasted malt and coffee aroma. Dark color that you can’t see through like a straight cup of coffee. Small maple head. Flavors are burnt toast, coffee and some bitter chocolate. Oily mouthfeel that coats your mouth. Well balanced with a nice alcohol undertone. Not all that easy to get yet, so pick one up if you see it.

Bitter cocoa and slightly tart aroma. Very dark with a thick but quickly fading dark tan head. Smooth. Lighter bodied than expected. Cocoa bitterness.

Bottle from trade with crajun. Black pour, low disappearing head without lacing, Aroma is sweet malt, roasty, chocolate and a hint of dried fruit; pretty nice. Flavor is very balanced with roasted notes, hint of chocolate and the right amount of bitterness for me. A little alcohol is in there. Flavors linger on the palate nicely, giving this good mouthfeel. Overall, a really balanced but interesting and very drinkable stout. Thanks, Kevin.

TwinBeer (58) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Dark black with a light brown head. Smells of chocolate and coffee, taste is nice semisweet dark chocolate with a light coffee and slight bitter after taste. overall this is a very good oatmeal stout with the 9.2% hidden well.

12oz bottle sent by crajun from his free beer contest, thanks! Pours black with a light tannish head and spotty lacing in the glass, aroma has a nice amount of chocolate with just a little bit of oat coming through, the flavor has a sweet front end with a finish of a little bit of chocolate, the mouthfeel is just a little light though and I wanted more out of it, the abv is well hidden, not bad.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 Aroma is a little alcohol-e with a hint of oatmeal but I?m not sure if that?s not just because I know its an oatmeal stout. Appearance is an impenetrable black with golden btown crown. Tastes great buy not as good as say founders breakfast stout, but its say a close second.

Wordsworth (135) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2013 Draft pour at Whip In. Pours darkest brown nearly black with a thin khaki head that dissipates. Thin foamy lacing clings to the upper glass. Too cold for a smell test. Taste is lightly roasted malts, coffee and a hint of chocolate. Thick mouthfeel that ends sort of sudsy. Pretty good stout from Independence.
