MMM... Well crafted beer. Very thick and creamy. Sweet taste and heavy mouthfeel made this beer exceptional.

Nice balance you could taste the oatmeal. This one is smooth and creamy. Good Stuff

One of the best stouts I have ever had, oatmeal or otherwise. Incredible head and creamy body, almost a roasted nut flavor on top of the chocolate flavor typical of most stouts. God I love this company.

Full but quickly dissapating head, very fragrant aroma rich smoky. Nice bitter finish but initial taste a little thin. Overall enjoyable but unlikely to become a regular stout for me.

Black color. Very thick full cascading “G” type head. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolates. A nice silky smooth. Medium bodied sweet stout. Mild malts and hops. A very flavorful beer. Nice chocolate and coffee flavor. Well balanced. Just wish it were in a brown bottle. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and a touch dry. What a sweet stout should be

Damn fine beer!! This has the full flavors that make beer worth drinking. It has better a cleaner creamy finish that comes unexpectedly after that full bodied flavor as well. You can taste a hint of coffee among the complex roasts, but nothing overpowers ... just tastes great.

I really do not get the smell form this brew as I do with other Oatmeal Stouts. It lack that, and the taste is good but cannoot amke up for the missing strong smell present in most oatmeal stouts. A good smell gets the mind and the mouth going in antisipation of the beer taste to come.

It’s good, but not that good!. Has something like a aroma as sherry, which is found again in the taste. But I didn’t find it so good a combination for a beer.
