It pours a dark brown close to black colored body with a slim half finger off-white/tan foamy head, some lacing slides into the body as it goes down. The aroma has some dark roasted malts, light coffee, slightly oaty. The taste has some roasted sweetness, slight chocolate, bittersweet chocolate aftertaste, and ends with a dry finish. Its somewhat easy on the palate. Overall, this is a good oatmeal stout, definitely worthy of many more pours and as a breakfast stout.

on tap @ Provisions Market, pours a deep brown with a frothy foamy head, smells a bit lackluster, slight hops but not much else, taste is smooth malt and a hint of oatmeal and bread. Quite good

Bottled: unk A: dark brown on black with a sheet of light mocha foam. Spotty lace. S: Smells like a bag of buttered popcorn (before it gets popped). This is a complete failure to the nose for a stout. That being said, itís almost fetish like with itís tones. T: Still buttery, with some roasted malts, burnt caramel, a weird manure tone. M: medium on full bodied with lower carb, semi dry finish. Pretty decent here. O: This beer is not a good example of an oatmeal stout. could be the bottle, but I wonít know unless somebody else gives me some of their bottle, because this is shite.

Black color, tan head. Aroma of cinnamon and charcoal. Sips full and with alcohol up front with big oat taste. ..duh itís called oatis! Creamy texture with the roasted burnt malt flavors. High alcohol is pretty prevalent, but Iím drinkin it fast so it might be different as it warms.

Served in a glass at a local fishhouse - not sure if it was from a bottle or tap. Black with aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Similar flavor, and lots of it, neither sweet nor bitter. Creamy.

Dark malt, chocolate and cream aroma. Black black red hue with a thin tan head. Dark malt and coffee start with a cream and of course oat aftertaste.

DocJitsu (826) - Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Pours a very dark brown with a pillowy, sudsy, dark, grey-taupe head. Coffee, smoky, date, English bitter aromas. Underlying wetness with some light astringency overarching. Ripe, British fruitiness, a little smoky coffee, all well-blended. Very nice stout.
