very rich tasting, but also very smooth... a little more carbonated than some others, but not in a bad way.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2010
Pours black, with flashes of deep brown. Thin dark-tan head, quickly reduced, spotty lacing. Nose is malted milk, big oats, some fruit; Flavor is rich & sweet, great oat character, banana, toast, more milk chocolate. Great oatmeal stout; I just don’t find them terribly complex anymore...

MarinaMarket (219) - POULSBO, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Love this beer...strong nutty, coffee, & chocolate flavors with a nice slightly bitter oaty finish. Beautiful brownish head and black as Wesley Snipes. Medium body with decent legs. A little oily & sticky too. Definitely sticks around the mouth for a bit. Tasted from the bottle @ 65°F. Get it if you can!

beerguy101 (5319) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Sampled on 3/5/2010. This sweet stout pours an eclipse black color from a 22oz bottle. Medium to full sized white foamy head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee and a touch of vanilla. A medium bodied sweet/oatmeal stout. The malts are roasty, chocolate and coffee. The hops are herbal. Nice carbonation. Seems a little overly roasted and a touch thin in the mouth for a oatmeal stout. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

alexanderj (3385) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 20, 2010
Bottle from Bevmo. Poured a dark brown/black color with a smallish, milky brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, oatmeal, coffee, earth, molasses and citrus. Not much sweetness in the flavor, but it was a quality beer. Alot of coffee, nuts and roasted malt. More sweetness would have been preferred to provide some balance. Some earthiness in the finish. Expected a bit more, but it was good.

Bottle. Blackish beer with a brown colored head. Roasty and coffee aroma with light oats. Caramel flavor with roast and coffee. Medium bodied. Roast and coffee lingers with caramel and light hops.

ericsondr (48) - Camano Island, Alabama, USA - APR 11, 2010
Great oatmeal stout flavor but falls a bit in body. Super smooth initially but leaves a nice finish with a slight coat in the throat. The head was a beautiful foam.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 10, 2010
22oz bottle. Rating #117. Dense, dark black pour with a very full and thick dark tan head, moderate lacing, it stuck for a brief moment before it started rolling down the glass. Roasty light chocolate aroma, very nice. Roasty, smoky flavor, very smoky as a matter of fact, it really sticks to the tongue. Nice and smooth, but it was a little too roasty/smoky for my taste. (1170)
