Sask89 (418) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - MAY 21, 2012
Pours an opaque black colour, with a frothy mocha head. Aroma is of toast, roasted oats, a little coffee and chocolate. Taste is sweet throughout with a slight dry bitterness as well. Medium body, good carbonation, smooth on the palate. I enjoyed this very much, on par with Rogue’s excellent stouts.

Deep brown black pour. Nose of acidic roasted malt and toast with mild dark fruit. Flavor is roasted malt with toasted oat and moderate hop bitterness. Lingering acidic roast and mild coffee with hops.

Poors black, no head. Sweet earthy with strong hints of bitter chocolate and coffee undertones. Finishes with bitter chocolate.

Muggus69 (1198) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2014
650mL bottle Near flawless jet black body with a dense, well-sized pale brown head holding. Excellent intensity on the nose; dark chocolate, baked cookies, porridge (in a good way, if that’s possible!?), soy sauce, orange & citrus, and woody hops. Moderate carbonation, creamy texture with a full body. Bit less intense on the body, but still plenty to enjoy; chocolate, caramel, orange, pine, dried leaves, touch of bread. Moderate bitterness on a medium-dry finish. Really good stuff, sets the bar high for the Oatmeal stout!

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - SEP 4, 2014
Dry oatmeal stout with yellowish beige head and very dark brown, almost black colour. Strong coffee-like roasted malts in the nose, raisins, bitter chocolate, leather, tonic water, bayleaf... Taste roasted bitter from beginning to end, very full, creamy and oily mouthfeel, chocolate, dried plums, with a strong citrussy hop bitterness coming up in the end - too strong for this style, if you ask me. Otherwise very interesting, though.

DeanF (1716) - Nunavut, CANADA - SEP 2, 2014
Nice very dark brown body with modest but solid head. Aroma is heavy on the hoppiness, I’d prefer some more barley to shine through to remind me it’s a stout. Flavour is strong on the hoppiness with a hint of chocolate, some coffee. But those hops, they drown a lot of the nuance out. This was sampled at room temperature, perhaps with some chillin’ there would be less illin’.

Bif (1443) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours a solid black color with a tan head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, bit of oatmeal and fresh grains. Taste of roasted malts, dark chocolate and oatmeal. Distinct bitterness and a dry finish. Full body, rich and creamy texture, with lots of character. This beer sets the bar for others to be compared to.

Chocolate cereals. Roasted malt, vanilla, coffee beans, bitter finish. Quite a strong bitter stout for a Rogue, rich roasted flavors but didn’t really do it for me.

Pours jet black with off-white head. Bitter, roasted cocoa beans on the nose. Oak, vanilla, cocoa, hints of chocolate, slightly bready, nice malty sweetness. A delicious stout.

PigMine (33) - San Angelo, Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2014
I don’t see a date on the bottle, but the hops are still sharp. It pours like motor oil, and has no light penetration. It smells like a bitter espresso, with some nice malty sweetness in there. It has a bite of hop bitterness on the front of the mouth. Day-old, bitter coffee taste dominates. It gives a medium mouth-feel; very creamy and smooth. It finishes bitter, with lingering coffee bitterness. The hops are noticeable on the finish, adding to the dry, clean finish. This Rogue is well worth the try!
