COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A robust, Irish-style stout with 75 pounds of rolled and steel-cut oats included in the mash. The oats add a creamy texture and velvety smoothness that help round out the roasted barley bite. Served nitrogen-conditioned for a thick, frothy head.

Tstamba (314) - Maryland, USA - AUG 29, 2013
On draft at the brewpub. Pours black with two finger thick foamy head, nice cascading lace... I get coffee and roasty malts on the nose, well balanced with a little sweetness from the oats to balance the finish... Well done... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stine (1573) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Polished, roasty aroma. Chocolates, brandy cherries, coffee, more.

Graham cracker maltiness and sarsaparilla bittersweetness make up a simple, top-heavy flavor.

Mouthfeel is round and delicate, lacking in a certain pillowy depth that characterizes better examples.

radarsock (913) - Vermont, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Had on tap, and served from a bartender who probably went as a "nerd" in high school. Reddish dark-brown pour which sustained huge frothy mocha head. Smells and tastes of refined sugar, Coca-Cola, licorice, and ash. Oats, roast and vanillin by swallow. Alright. Too sweet for the style, IMHO.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Cask at GBBF 2012, London. Pours rich brown with a fine, bubbly head. Rich chocolate aroma with moderate roast, some char. Medium sweet flavor with dark chocolate, dark toast, modest earthy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Faint dryness to finish with loads of rubust yet restrained chocolate and roasted malts. Superb.
