COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our award-winning stout is rich and malty with hints of chocolate and coffee. It’s what espresso would be if it had the gumption to be beer. Makes a great dessert...or meal.

Beerenberger (1423) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Aroma was somewhat confusing - wood, a cheesiness, roasted malt. Pour a brownish-black with a robust lasting espresso head and abundant lacing. Bittness is the dominate flavor. Burnt grain, burnt coffee, burnet wood. Medium body and excessive carbonation. Overall, too much burnt tast and too much carbonation. An oatmeal stout should be smoother and smoothness is not what this beer is about"

12oz bottle from The Beer Store in Wilson. Black hue, zero visibility with fully lasting thick frothy caramel head. Fair lacing. Moderate coffee, chocolate, malt and alcohol aroma. Heavy bitter chocolate & coffee up front with a medium coffee & malt finish. Dry on the palate. I would drink this one again.

harrymel (1499) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Bottled: unk ABV 6.4% Black with some tannish foam. Initial nose comes through with good, strong oats and tootsie rolls, graham and some nice, nice cocoa. Nice nose. Slightly dry, coffee toned, grainy, oaty flavor up front with some nice bitterness on the back end. Nice malt character on this beer - so far soo good on this one. Thick and smooth with a lighter carb and semi dry character. Nice beer, really nice surprise. Serving type: bottle 05-03-2012
