Oatmeal domintates the aroma, but there are dark roasted chocolate, and some malts in there as well. Murky brown color with a very sparse tan head that was left over from a decent sized beginng. A very oaty taste up front, but that give way to a nice bitterness. Hints of cocoa in there as well. A rather dry finish that seems to linger a bit. Over all rather tasty.

Black opaque with light tan head. The aroma is lightly fruity with lots of roastiness & light smoke. The flavor is very nice with some light hop balance & lots of mocha, chocolate/coffee goodness. Finishes creamy & milky with a lingering roastyness. Thanks MarkR!

Ahh! Opaque brown. Smallish head and little lacing. Roast and coffee, light soy sauce and smoke. Smoky flavors. Roasted malts, more coffee tones and bitter hops. Body is on the thick side and a palate filled with smoke.

I had this out of the tap and bottle. Pours dark brown with a mimimal head. It is smooth and the taste is subtle, but not bitter. I can't wait to try it again a few times just to be sure.

Dark brown coloured body with a lighter tan head. aroma of chocolate and coffee flavours. Medium-bodied; Strong malt taste with chocolate very noticeable. Chewy aftertaste with sweetness coming out of every tastebud. Overall, a very nice oatmeal, definately worth trying! I got this twelve ounce bottle from Phil (haddon90) in Knoxville, Tennessee...thanks again Phil!

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2004 2003 bottle. Pours a dark greyish-brown but has some softer amber tinges. Good cream colored head. Smells immensely creamy and oaty. Like a bowl of thick creamy oats but also a scent of vanilla. Man I love flaked oats. I enjoyed the aroma so much, that I couldnt stop myself from diving right in to the tasting of this one. And what a flavor. Smooth, creamy, silky. Big oats flavor, vanilla hints, malt in the background. Just incredibly drinkable. I drank this beer in about 2 minutes and immediately wanted another. No trace of alcohol. Not as complex as say Bell’s Double cream, but the oaty goodness is out of this world and the palate could not be any more rich, smooth and balanced.

From bottle and tap. Bottle smelled like butt... musty and thick chocolate. Tap didn't have much flavor to offer at all. Watery but gritty. Just a little roasted malts.

Not too impressed. Smells like butt - seriously, I don't know what was wrong with it. Appearance is cark with a slight head. Flavor is very light - some chocolate but mostly a slightly-nasty aftertaste that left my mouth begging to make it stop. Also, it seemed pretty thin for a stout, even a sweet one. Don't think I'll try this one again.

3/7/04. Poured out of 12 oz. bottle, obtained in a trade with igneous1 on RateBeer. Pours a dark brown-black with ruby outline, good-sized, frothy and rocky dark tan head that fades to a rocky tuft. Lacing is pretty good, a bit lumpy and blotchy but quite nice. Aromas of light coffee, cream, roasted malt, and a wood-like trace of dirty dishwater. First taste reveals medium-thin body, very smooth with a slightly woody tang and dark roasted maltiness. Pretty decent and drinkable, but it's lacking in complexity and depth, in my opinion. Finish goes smooth and pretty elegant, lingering with a smokiness to the malt and a subtly dirty hopped bitterness and burnt black pepper taste. More going on in the back end than when you first take a drink of this stuff. Quite nice to linger on after a swallow. A solid, drinkable oatmeal stout, but not close to my favorite.
