Very smooth. Silky mouth feel and a very nice finish. One of the better oatmeal stouts around. Sweet and crisp up front and sweet and crisp on the back. Nice all around beer.

Bottle. Almost black, beautiful dark brown head with decent retention and solid lacing. Aroma of chocolate oatmeal raisin cookies with macadamia nuts inside. Taste is silky coffee grounds and burnt espresso. Very nice.

Pretty nice oatmeal stout by the Brattleboreans. Quite thin palate for an oatmeal was a bit strange. Smell was roasty goodness with light coffee. Taste was roast, caramel and a bit watery. Overall decent and tasty.

Roasted and creamy stout. Low abv and a quaffer. In big gulps it tastes roasted and tasty. Good job

22 oz bomber from the dirtiest brewery/brewpub in America(most likely). Once again another shitty infected beer but being a "bigger" beer, well bigger then the other shit they are pumping out, the infection isnít that noticeable, yet. Poured the normal black body with a rather unimpressive bubbly super dark mocha colored head, love the color though. The aroma is just "off", notes are of sour milk, earth, flowers, bad orange slices, funky chocolate. Body is thinner with soft carobantion and just weak. Flavor is about as good as the aroma. Blah, damn I wish this brewery didnít have a last name so similar to mine that I feel like trying all their offerings. Why couldnít it be Singhís brewery??

jgb9348 (4734) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2011
Deep pitch dark brown coloured body with a frothy, one centimetre tall light brown head with only a little brown showing when held up to the light. Aroma of cookies, oatmeal, roasted malt, coffee, alcohol, oak and a bit of earth - potent. Full-bodied; Pungent roasty, oatmeal and lightly spiced flavour shows strong at first, but covers the whole palate well with a little alcohol, a lot of sweetness and a good complex flavour that is actually not cloying nor overly potent - a perfect combination. Overall, one of the best oatmeals Iíve had - a perfectly rounded beer with great strong flavours but not too potent and even showing a light hop bitterness on the finish - great! Definitely one to sample if you can find this at all! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Liquor Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 08-May-2011 sampled at home in Washington on 06-July-2011.

Dorwart (2374) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Decent sized dark brown head of very fine bubbles. Light aroma with some chocolate malt and roasted grains. Very dark brown in color. Thick and chewey palate with lots of malts, oatmeal, toast and a bit of black licorice. Light alcohol presence. Finishes roasty and strong with a lingering bit of molasses and licorice. A decent oatmeal stout.

mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Bottle is deep, deep brown with a small khaki head. This is about as close to pitch black as it can get while retaining a brown hue. Aroma is sweet chocolate, a little bit of roast coffee, but iím getting a slight soy sauce component as well. Taste is slightly smoky, dark chocolate, but a little watery and thin. Finish is slightly bitter and somewhat out of place.

abcfan (720) - New Jersey, USA - APR 19, 2011
Pretty solid brew. Pours black, with a small tan head. Aroma is of roasted oats and bitter chocolate. A bit thin in the mouth, very drinkable roasted oat flavor, with a bitter dry finish.

On cask at the brewpub. Dark black, dense head, slightly sour aroma. Mineral, british-style flavors.
