650!ml bottle from giant eagle. Good sweet smoky nose and good thick pour. Full body and great balance. Oats come first and little chocolate finish. Could be a bit thicker and more full to make an unstoppable beast but still wouldn't pour out for my homies. ---Rated via my mouth

Pours black with a caramel head that is nice and dense. Nice mouth feel as you would expect from an oatmeal stout, along with a charcoal and sweet malt mid palate. Smoky chocolate finish that lingers. Only truly reveals its oatmeal origins right at the very end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 500mL bottle. Appearance is dark chocolate black, huge head. Aroma is heavy tobacco, vanilla bean extract. Taste is earthy and oatmeal, with milky taste. Palate is medium bodied and semi-creamy. Overall, its pretty darn good but you already knew that.

trapped (1305) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 16, 2015
Draught @ Stag’s Head. Inky black with small creamy beige head, faint coffee aroma, low carbonation, bitter coffee beans taste, long bitter finish. I missed the chocolate aftertaste, feeling just the bitterness. Very good stout, simple and straightforward.

Black pour..no light, just black. Small toffee colored head. Nose is coffee and coco nibs. Bittersweet. Middle is unsweetened coco, huge dark roasted malt backbone,charred wood. Finish is dry. This is better than chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven.

stevecrawshaw (2) - bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2015 does not count
The aroma is wonderful, honey, blossom, rich sweet malt. The interplay of cascade and the chocolate malts creates a lovely floral nose. Taste is rich, chocolatey with some bitterness from the dark malts but not overpowering. Head is initially tan but fades to cream and dissipates somewhat. Long finish and smooth mouthfeel. Full bodied and very satisfying. A cracking beer.
