malrubius (2519) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 21, 2015
Bottle from Brewfest. Black with tan head and lace. Tangy oaty aroma with some dark roasted espresso and ripe plummy aroma. Very roasted nuts and plums tangy oats sweetness and breadiness (aroma) with bitter roasted nuts and ashy notes in finish. Medium body. Fairly aggressively bitter for an oatmeal stout, but still quite good.

ThreeCats (802) - ISRAEL - AUG 16, 2015
Almost black with ruby highlights and a huge dark mocha head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, dark carmel, and roast. Taste very roasty, with lots of bitter chocolate and espresso. Not as sweet as aroma would suggest, but very full. If the aroma promised cappuccino, the flavor delivered really good Italian espresso. Great beer.

Great coffee like aroma with some oatmeal sweetness. The roast in this stout is cut significantly by the oatmeal but does not cause it to be too sweet. I'm biased against this category because I like my stouts bigger and heavier but this is good for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
