The roasted nutty malt flavors balance the oatmeal sweetness nicely. Thin compared to other beers of similar style, but the well balanced taste makes up for it. Looking forward to trying again soon.

Aroma of malt and coffee. I enjoyed that part of it. Very dark. Not much body for a stout. Nutty flavor mixed with coffee and malt sweetness and a smooth finish. Pretty decent stout!

Opaque near black with a taller glistening tan head. Mocha and light coffee aroma. Slightly oily in feel. Flavors of choclate MaltOMeal. Finish is a bit weak and dry but good flavors up front save this one.

IF you can get this fresh enough, it blows Smithís oatmeal stout out of the pub. A wondefully dark beer with enough taste to stand up being served well chilled. Excellent with a hearty stew and brown bread.

Well, I cant say this holds a candle to any of the Rogue stouts or really many of those from the west coast, but its good stuff, and I looked forward to it when I returned to the Northwoods. Deep Chocolatey brown with a chocolatey head. Looks nice, just a little thin. Definite sweetness from the oats, hints of dark chocolate and coffee as well. Heavy duty roasted barley, mild hop presence & nice smooth mouthfeel, just seems watery and thin compared to what Iíve had lately.

Black color, no head. Smells of oatmeal more than chocolate. Hmm, yep, taste of chocolate, with the occasional taste of oatmeal. A decent mix of flavors, but not my thing. Thick.

Dark body and creamy head. Malt is a strong roasted chocolate flavor. The problem here is certainly in the finish, as it the intitial flavor seems to disappear and finish dry and bland. A good start but not complete in its complexity.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2004 ReRate (24 May 2004)- 12 oz bottle: dark chocolately brown with garnet edges & a persistent tan cream. Huge roasted nut aroma, along with some dry oatmeal, dusty chocolate and the campfire I remember. Palate was still a bit lacking, but smooth and creamy no less. Finish was a bit darker and more flavourful than before with a slight raisiny sweetness, a solid stout, up one on overall. Original (26 October 2002): Very nice big dark brown head, it made me want to get a spoon and take a bite of it. Sweet, malty aroma. I can only describe the flavour as a sweet campfire. Dry empty finish - seems like they forgot something, still a nice brew.

First of all, this is the first time I have seen these two ingredients coupled together. However, I like the idea. This beer was quite nice, but didnít quite live up to the expectations I had. Thick and dark with a light brown head. The aroma is obviously of chocolate and roasty malts. I also picked up some fruit, perhaps cherry. The flavor is very roasty, dominated by coffee, chocolate and the "oatmeally" malt expected with an oatmeal stout. The finish is very creamy and smooth, almost too much so. Close, but not quite right.

Kind of a strange one. Decent brown head and body. Nice chocolate flavor and aroma. There was a recurring sourness that really marred both the aroma and the flavor. Skunky?
