COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional stout using dark roasted malted barley to create a full-bodied ale. Rounded with the smooth flavor of oats, the addition of English Kent Goldings hops produces a creamy stout that has proven to be a favorite.

Liquorice, raisins, and heavy molasses on the nose. Jet black in color with almost no foam. Nice plethora of flavors including roasted coffee beans, burnt molasses, toasted oats and some subtle cocoa. Overall, this is a well done stout boasting some assertive and complex flavors. I’d give this a B+ rating.

Bottle from BevMo Tucson. Pours black with a ton of khaki foam. Big chocolate and roast notes on the nose. Taste the roast on the tongue but it also feels slightly burned as well. finishes clean. eh.

Cybercat (3516) - Georgia, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Smoky, earthy aroma has nutty, yeasty and hoppy hints. It pours a beautiful opaque dark-chocolate brown with a fairly thick and persistent tan head that leaves some generous lacing. Sublime flavor has smoky, roast malt, coffee, nutty, earthy and toffee notes of varying prominence, quite tasty. Texture has good body and fizz - not full-bodied, but still impressive. Heartily recommended.

maekchu (2300) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle. Creamy chocolate and a bit of coffee in the nose. Dark brown, translucent at the edges, and little head. Decent chocolate flavor, some brown sugar, and not a lot else. Very mild aftertaste. Smooth, thin, and a bit fizzy. Mild and pleasant. Okay.

bottle. nice looking, thick, light brown head. chocolatey sweet oatmeal aroma. flavor has good blend of bitter roast and sweet milk chocolates. the body is thin for an oatmeal stout, but the oatmeal addition does make the palate creamy. kind of dry finish.

DrSilverworm (6983) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2012
12oz bottle, thanks to Radarsock. Good, half-inch light brown head. Black body. Decent lace. Good, hearty texture, but light-tan medium body. Lighter, smooth carbonation. Great aromatic nose. Nice creamy chocolate malts and oat flavor, some good roastiness. Satisfying, robust flavor, good mild bitter sweet roasty taste. Satisfying solid oatmeal stout. Can’t complain. Good example of the style. My mom had a sip, she really seemed to like it.

Strykzone (5075) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Sampled at the brewpub. Stout looking. Chocolate aroma and flavor. Softer roasted notes. Lots of malt with only a hint of hops that are noticed more in the after taste. A creamy feel. Nothing here is big but it is nice.
