portableparty (2104) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Bottle. Pour is watery black brown with a kahki head that dissipate to a ring and is calm. Aroma is soy coco and hints of coffee along with some cereal. Taste cereal and coco with subtle coffee and malt. Palate is somewhat watery with a dry finish. Decent beer for the money.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2010
Pours an opaque nutty/chocolate brown with very little head, just a tiny bit of tan froth. Aroma is light, notes of nuts. Flavor is earthy with notes of grassy hops, toasted malts and mild cocoa notes, definitely nutty tones.

arminjewell (8674) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2010
Pours deep brown with off white head, aroma is some charred and burnt malt with some coffee notes. Taste up front is some coffee, roasted malt, and a bit of acidity. Not bad, but pretty watery and some off tastes.

Another fun regional bottle from a coworker, thanks Mitch! - Pours thin and dk dk brown with a medium tan head....aroma is full of roasted oats and grain, dry cocoa and slight day old coffee...flavour is similar, lightly astringent, burnt wood and burnt coffee, not bitter burnt, just kinda charred...finish had a nice grittiness to it...

kramer (5395) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small short lived fizzy light brown head. The nose is deeply roasty with some oats and black strap molasses. There’s a bit of a metallic note as well. The flavor is a balance between the roast and a weird burnt rubber taste. Some earthiness, oats, and sweet burnt caramel. Mouthfeel is a bit flat with some light clinginess and light fizzy carbonation. The finish is especially watery and thin. Not the most well made beer. That burnt rubber quality really bothered me the whole time.

jake65 (2901) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Bottle: Pours a dark brown color with a thin beige head. Nose is mostly roast at first, but becomes a rich and sweet chocolatey melody. The taste beckons back to the heavy roast of the aroma with a little charred wood, light oat presence, and some bittersweet chocolate. Medium bodied and increases it’s charm as the glass warms.

aetheon (85) - The Gutter, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2009
pours typical stout brown black, smallish head very little lacing. Flavor is mostly of slightly blackened malts with lite but noticeable hops. Otherwise its sharp cheese, a little coffee, burnt nut and some creaminess. mouthfeel is moderate with a fairly clean finish. Overall for an oatmeal stout its OK.
