Bottle from Letís Pour, pours a very thick charcoal black pour with a rather fast java dissipating head. Nose is sweet and sugary with coffee, chocolate and subtle licorice. Taste is sweet and full of flavor, with chocolate oatmeal flavoring predominating. Finish is dry, short and sweet. Nice sweet stout, drinks quite easily. Quaff Score 8 / 10

Itís got the chocolaty, coffee aroma, taste, and silky smoothness characteristic of an oatmeal stout, but lacks the complexity exhibited by the great ones. Good, not great.

Pours a deep black color with a tan foam head. Aroma of sweet malt with a smooth oatmeal flavor. Taste is silky, with a mild sweet flavor that I canít pinpoint. Easy drinking for a stout, clean and refreshing. Good complex flavor throughout.

STEVE! Bottle from Belmont Station (I think ....). Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma has chocolate and cocoa and oatmeal. Taste is of bitter bakers chocolate, rich sweet caramel malts and sweet cocoa. Perhaps some oatmeal to smooth it out. Medium to full bodied. Fairly smooth and luscious. Nice choco-malty presence.

Tap at Commons Santa Monica. Thick coffee foam. Clear deep cola brown. Nose is tootsie roll, paper, dusty. Taste is tangy, lemon, lots of acid extraction, bitter roasty coffee. Some thick chocolate. Palate is definitely lactic and a bit too tart for style.

Smells like chocolate and caramel, tastes like chocolate and coffee. Nice balance of sweetness and bitterness. Great oatmeal stout.
