COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our inky-black, oatmeal stout has a smooth, round palate with a dreamlike undercurrent of bittersweet chocolate. This dense liquid-silk summons hope from hibernation and balances winter’s endless white snows with a rich swirl of creamy black rapture. Available in the Winter, reintroduced in Winter 2012 after a hiatus.

Dark black with dark brown foam. Very burnt and dry, but short, flavour. Dangerously drinkable.

High hopes off the name. It pours wonderfully with a beautiful, dark, lasting head. Smells nice like a fine french roast. Taste: Wheres the body? Whose got the body? Way to lacking in malty chewiness and was a real dissapointment. Certainly not enough abv to warrnt being a winter warmer. Similar to Saranac mocha stout

This beer didn’t seem full enough. Light for an oatmeal stout.

Great outmeal stout, one of my all time favorite stout, and my favorite Magic Hat beer. Love the bittersweet chocolate flavor.

One of my all time favorite beers. A touch on the sweet side, but still remains hearty as a stout should be.

Pretty good, but lacking in body.
