tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - MAR 14, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 Bottle: Jet black, no color, topped with a huge, dark-tan head made of fine bubbles that lasts for seemingly days; chunky lacing left behind. Aroma full of sweetness & roasted grains... small dose of ashy, leafy hops bite the nostrils. Light cocoa powder, smooth cut oats, & a current of creamy sweetness that ties everything together. Deep, robust flavor of heavily roasted malts, nuts, wood, bittersweet cocoa nibs & cocoa powder, & a hint of bitter espresso bean on the very back end. Strong hop presence; earthy, leafy, mildly floral, acting as a good malt offset. Nice creaminess from the oats, which are flavorful in the aftertaste. Lasting, lightly hop-bitter, earthy-cocoa finish. Might be the best beer I’ve had from Rogue.

Patersoi (49) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2015
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 (1309) - 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.
