COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is a heavenly marriage of an Irish-style dry stout and an Oatmeal stout. By complimenting the dominant roasted barley accents of a dry stout with the unmistakably rich and silky finish that only oatmeal can provide.

Bottle to a tulip, nice black beer with a fairly rich off-white head. Not detecting much of anything in the way of nose, but the flavour really does make up for it; quite rich on the tongue, bitter coffee backed up by sweet chocolate, comfortable hops on the way down. A very nice oatmeal stout.

Bottle. Pours very dark near black with small offwhite head. Aroma of malt and tastes roasted and coffee like flavours.

Lagerboy (1334) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2013
Bomber. Clear deep dark amber, foamy tan head settles and mostly lasts. Rich sweet aroma of chocolate and dark toasty malt. In contrast the first sip is sharp bitter coffee bean, followed by bittersweet dark roasted chocolate malts, some nuttiness. Soft smooth carbonation, medium-full body, moderately hopped. Clean coffee finish. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Pleasantly darker than most oatmeal stouts Iím used to, and somewhat more astringent, but beyond this it doesnít have much presence. Fairly smooth and drinkable.

solidfunk (4492) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Seems a little underrated to me. Aroma is nice, spot on style with some dark chocolate and breakfast oats. Not quite a silky finish as the blurb says but a nice leave of chocolate bitter. Pours pitch black with good head and some lacing. Medium consistency. Bottle from BCLS.

Very bland and boring flavour. The pour is a dark brown verging upon black with a heavy tan head subsides to a thin spotty layer. The nose is mildly roasted, toasted toffee and a lite burnt minerally aroma. Light roasted malt flavour profile with a light cocoa taste and lacks an overall stout flavor

Pours a clear very dark brown with a few thin off white-tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, mild sweetness and some oats. Flavour is roasted malts mixed with a moderate bitterness which gives a big of a burnt taste, coffee, watery and a slight sweetness. Bit thin for my liking.

mcberko (7244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2012
341mL bottle, pours dark amber brown with a small off-white head - barely looks like a stout. Aroma of sweet chocolate, oats and some light roast. Flavour is simple, but pleasant, of some sweetened cocoa, oatmeal, and some roast. Very watery stout - one of the most thin Iíve encountered. The flavours are decent enough, if weak, but this is missing body. Not so good an attempt.

reebtogi (4388) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2012
341ml bottle pours almost black in color with a finger of light tan head that leaves some pretty nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains and chocolate with some mild hops. Taste is roasted barley with some chocolate malty sweetness and a dry hop bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied with some decent carbonation leaving a slight tingle on the palate. This is a well done brew that is worthy of tasting, definitely recommended.

341ml brown bottle. Deep reddish brown pour, good sized tan head with a creamy bead, lots of sticky lace. Nose has some chocolate, roast, a bit of toffee and toasted malt. In the mouth the beer has some dark chocolate up front, some sweetness, sort of brown sugary, a slight metallic roast note. Finishes with a pleasing roasty bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation. Decent, drinkable, better than I was expecting. Like a dry stout with a heavier body and more cabonation.
