chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2004
Bottled, post DC gathering. Red/brown colour. Not that dark. Dry, roast malt aroma. Vague chocolate and a touch of licorice on the palate. Slightly thin mouthfeel. Decent, but not too rich and not too inspiring.

sebletitje (7473) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2009
courtesy of hwwty4. Pours deep black with coffee/tan head. Aroma, light malts with chocolate, oat and roasted malts. Taste, roasted malts with hints of coffee and oats, light bitter chocolate and hops. Leave a lingering bitter palate feel. Bitter chocolate finish. Was really expecting something better.

phaleslu (7363) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Draft at the Schlafly Tap Room. Pours a super dark brown, cloudy but not quite opaque and highlighted with some clear brown-amber. Two-finger thick beige head. Aroma of roasted caramel malts, toasted grains, oats, coffee, and some light, earthy hops. Flavor of roasted caramel malts, oats, chocolate, coffee, toast, cream, and brown sugar. Medium-bodied, with soft carbonation and a dry, gritty mouthfeel. Nice oatmeal stout.

Ibrew2or3 (7361) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Courtesy of CigarCityBrew. Pours deep garnet with mocha head. The aroma is roasty to dark roasted malts leaning toward burnt malts and some biscuit. The taste is roasty moving more in the direction of mild malt astringency. Then thereís also notes of caramel and chocolate blending into sweet malts and dark roastiness. The roasted malts grow in strength as it is warmed and more of it is consumed. I didnít really notice the signature creaminess the oatmeal tends to bring along.

Ughsmash (7327) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 27, 2007
On tap at Schlafly Tap Room. Poured a clear, medium-depth mahogany with a short, but well-retained cap of creamy beige head. Aroma seemed artificially-sweetened with chocolate at the core.. just a pinch of dried coffee.. too sweet. Flavor was of very sweet chocolate, oats, and some lactose sugars at the base with a mild bitterness emanating outward.. the sweetness seemed too amped up, which detracted from the enjoyment factor a bit. Lighter-bodied with OK flow to it.. again too sweet.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2003
A very dark and viscous brown color with a creamy white head. Aroma is roasted and buttery. Sweet malty body with coffee and chocolate finish. Good complexity. Very smooth and robust, a must try if you can get it.

alexsdad06 (6730) - Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Bottle. Pours dark reddish brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malt with a touch of chocolate. The flavor is much of the same, roasted malts, chocolate, and some coffee. Dry throughout, not sweet. It was ok, but I would opt for many other stouts before doing this again.
