No real head on this beer. Taste is average at best. Slightly disapointed by this brew.

Dark reddish brown with little head. Toasted malt and coffee aroma with a little toffee. Medium bodied with a quick finish. Moderate roast and coffee flavor. Little hop flavor.

Creamy head melts into foamy mounds. Tar black with a touch of caramel around the rim. The aroma is cocoa and sweet chocolate, with little to no roastiness. Loads of carbonation in the body - drinks almost like a cola at first. Easy boy! More sweetness in the body, coupled with a touch of bitterness. This stout is headed in the right direction, but could use more of everything (except carbonation!)

A pleasant-enough beer, but smelled and tasted more like a good lager. Little roasted malt, jsut a touch of sweetness. Thin with lively carbonation and a slightly bitter aftertaste. Certainly, smooth. Not displeasing, but also nothing to distinguish it.

Pours black with a good head. The aroma is all roasted grain. Has an initial taste of raisin that develops into a coffee and chocolate bitterness. Not much of an oatmeal presence. A decent beer.

Reviewed 11/15/2008 (Tap Sampler @ Schlafly Tap Room, St. Louis, MO): Pours a red black brown color body, looks like a flat cola with a tannish head. Oatmeal, coffee aroma. Some alcohol in the nose too. Effervescent. Coffee taste, some liquor taste like whiskey. Watery taste, almost like a porter, but it does have that taste of a stout, almost. Some bitter chocolate taste. Maybe some oatmeal in the taste too.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy beige head. The nose is more grainy than roasty with a bit of coffee and oats. The flavor is a bit thin with some roasted malt, nuttiness, maybe a touch of oatmeal, and some coffee and light bitterness on the finish. Lighter bodied with a too much fizzy carbonation that thins out on the finish. Overall fairly decent and drinkable, but it could use a bit more malt density and heft in the mouthfeel.

nearbeer (3660) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 30, 2013
12 oz. Opaque with a lasting film of cream. Faint nose is coffee, dark chocolate and scorched grain. Tastes of dark chocolate, sourish berry, caramel, old coffee, and wood. Medium body is balanced and has light-medium carbonation.

Poured from a cold brown bottle. Dark brown color, short lived tan head. Oyster smell. light taste for an oatmeal stout.

Very heavy oatmeal, almost has a little bit of steak aroma... pretty effing odd. Body is of a typical stout, black with a thin tan head. Taste is chocolate and oatmeal... pretty standard oatmeal stout, nothing great, but a good beer to drink on ocassion. Mouthfeel is a little rougher then I’d like though.
