COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A delicious Oatmeal Stout with just enough hops to balance the copious quantities of dark roasted malts, oatmeal for a creamy smooth drinkability, and whole vanilla beans for a rich complexity.

Bomber. Pours dark. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate and the usual suspects. Pretty sweet but worth trying.

22 oz bottle. Dark brown with tan foam. Nose is dusty grape, wood, vanilla and bittersweet chocolate. Smooth and creamy finishing with a sharp tang. Taste is oats, mocha, prune and earthy vanilla then dry with coffee bean and toasted marshmallow. Suitable for breakfast.

vulcanmeister (196) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours a dark thick with heavy tan long-lasting head. Aroma malt,coffee, caramel, and maybe a touch of vanilla. Medium body and carbonation with smooth mouth-feel. Like someone else said, it’s like a roasty cream soda. Bittersweet chocolate and long roasty finish. Very satisfying.

adnielsen (9013) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle @ booze cruise. Deep brown appearance with a dark brown head. Roasted dark chocolate, cocoa, light coffee, bacillus, sweet aroma. A bit thick mouth flavor. Nice flavor. Lots of dark chocolate, vanilla bean, and coffee. A bit sweet but drinks pretty good.

Jow (2091) - New York, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Tap at Fools Gold. Pours black with one finger head that dissipates. Nose is vanilla and malt. Tastes of subdued vanilla, burnt malt, rye bread, chocolate, and hoppy. Lactose on palate.

Bpasquini (10) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 3, 2014
AROMA: Very simple here, vanilla, chocolate, and oats, but it smells really good! APPEARANCE: Pretty typical here for a stout, black, with a nice little mocha colored head that goes quickly TASTE: WOAH! This is excessively hopped with buttering hops! Besides the bitterness, the taste follows the smell exactly. If this beer wasn’t so bitter it would have an immense amount of potential to be very good. PALATE: Very light, leaves your mouth dry, very uncharacteristic like of a stout OVERALL: Needs less buttering hops, just way too much for a stout, stouts are supposed to be on the sweeter side, not the bitter side

AbbeyRoade (303) - Missouri, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Not sure about this one. I feel like the body is too thin to hold such strong flavors. Good complex vanilla, oat, chocolate, stouty flavors but the flat brew doesn’t do them justice like it should.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Deep black pour under a thin sticky light khaki head. Lovely chocolaty nose with some vanilla and earthy caramel and a soft oat tone. Flavor is rich but not too sweet. A little dry and roasty but tones of rich oats and earthy chocolate and a touch of dry earthy vanilla. Pretty tasty nightcap.

Bottle - Bittersweet chocolate and light vanilla. Jet black with a beige white head. Nice chocolate and vanilla with a nice finish. Nice all the way around.
