Purchased at the flagship Whole Foods in Austin, TX; enjoyed while binge-watching House of Cards. Appearance is a moderately thick pitch black with a thin white rim. Aroma of light molasses, chocolate, light sweetness. Taste goes down with a light burn, rich chocolate notes, oats, light hops. Overall it's pretty good.

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

(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.

Aroma of coffe and chocolate. Nice head. Smooth finish. ABV not noticeable. More chocolate flavor noticeable than coffee.

Vcoggins (39) - 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.

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%
