Sampled at HotShotz Indy tasting May 24, 2008 - Aroma is dark malts, oats, grease and chocolate. Pours light black with a small head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma and is pretty mellow. This may be due to itís place in the tasting. Palate is creamy and smooth. Not bad and will probably rate higher when I get it on itís own.

Had this one on draught as part of a sampler at the brewpub in Lafayette, Indiana. Opaque dark brown pour with a coffee and soy sauce nose, very sweet chocolate and bitter coffee balanced out into an outstanding oatmeal stout.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 4, 2008
12 oz bottle: Deep black core with tan highlights and a thick brown head. Notes were light but present, mostly nuts and caramel. The body was even and balanced with chocolate, nuts, caramel and coffee. The oatiness was missing though. A well done brew that didnít extend itself in any direction to warrant a second look. Solid but expected.

Very dark brown pour with no head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, toffee. Nice, subdued aroma. Taste is slightly acidic with an oatmeal and roasted malt presence. Decent.

[Bottle] Pours black with no head and nearly no bubbles. Aroma is pretty decent, lots of smoke, some roasted malts, and a touch of oats. Flavor kind of drops off, though. Watery and flat, mostly harsh roasty malts and plenty of smoke. Thereís really no sweetness to be found. Thereís also some light band-aid and detergent in there as well. Bummer, I generally really enjoy oatmeal stouts.

Thanks to Bob, Michelle, and mostly my baby Jana for the 12th annual Indiana Microbrewers Festival today! On tap @ the fest. Nose of coffee, vanilla, oats, and flowers. The beer is black. The fully lasting brown creamy head leaves good lace. The brew is very well balanced, and has moderate acidity. The long finish is of espresso. The full soft body is creamy and the finish feels dry. Lafayette was definitely the biggest surprise today! I made a new friend.

Had this on draft on a recent road trip. Served in a pub pint glass. Appears a very dark brown with a good one inch head on top. Looks good. Smell is roasted oats and malts. Taste is roasted oats with some molasses. Mouthfeel is really thick/creamy and smooth. Little to no carbonation to speak of. This is a good offering and a very good representation of the style. It goes down very easy and with no signs of the alcohol content. Which makes this a very sessionable beer.

Growler thanks to Bobby91w. Very, very, nice, although maybe more of an oatmeal porter than stout, like CharlesDarwin said. Pours a nice brown with a red hue. Nice aroma: oats, cinnamon, cookie dough, and chocolate. Flavor is much the same, tastes a bit like an oatmeal cookie with hints of roasted barley and maybe even a touch of coffee. Nice local brew that I was glad I got to try.

Bottle from VBS. Pours Pours opaque black with slight brown edge and minimal quickly disappearing light tan head. Nose is dark malt, coffee, some chocolate and a little red meat. Flavor is well watered down nose, most of the nose has disappeared, whatís mainly left is black coffee and dark malt/chocolate. Much thinner and more watery than I was expecting and hoping. Still very decent sipper, smooth and easy on the palate. A slight sweet side and very faint hop background. The thinness is just too distracting IMHO.
