Iíve been sampling a mixed six pack of Schlaflyís and this is by far my favorite. Beautiful rich color with a light brown head. Subtle toast aroma. Huge flavor -- sweet burnt chocolate malt wonderfully balanced with hop bitterness. Full bodied and a long, warm finish.

From a twelve ounce bottle purchased at "Liqour Direct" in Covington, Kentucky - This one pours a black brew with a tan head and a dry, malty aroma. Tastewise, itís a good stout, with rich burnt chocolate overtones, but the oatmeal taste doesnít appear until the finish. A ood beer, but somewhat atypical of the style.

Appearance: dark burnt woods with garnet glints along the bottom. Khaki head spreads out from the middle like a spider web with a tight collar. Swirls thick but no lace.
Nose: roasted oats, dry brittle chocolates, burnt toast ends. Twigs and ash. Dark fruit stones in the back, almonds. Mulled oats tossed in bakers chocolate powder. Old earth undertones.
Palate: smooth creamy mouthfeel. Soft oats rolled in chocolate powder. Chocolate sits amidst rich earth littered with dry twigs and fallen leaves. Raisins and grapes in the middle. Tannic and fruit stone bitterness along the edges. Very soft mouthfeel. Dry chocolate finish parches the throat.
Final Thoughts: loved it. Itís been a long time since Iíve tasted a Schlafly beer and yes, they are still good. So many beers, so little timeÖbut I am going to darn well try.

Pours dark brown to black with a small head fading quickly. Nearly no lace. Aroma is sweet bread malts, caramel, dark chocolate, medium roast, coffee. Taste is chocolate, light sweet caramel, coffee, and sweet enough to provide some balance. Smooth and silky but is slightly disrupted by carbonation. Pretty good stout

Black ,thin head,some lacing. Aroma is malty chocolate,plum,anise,fruit,and a strong vannilla oakish,kindof woodiness.Comes off as an exotic type fruit. I guess it would be the raison,I think its some yeast esters.Fine tobacco. Taste is same as aroma all of those notes intensify in a complex taste. This is a really good oatmeal stout. Has a nice unique character to it.

rangerred (937) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - APR 2, 2013
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours nearly pitch black with a one and a half finger dark tan head. Excellent head retention with a cap remaining over halfway through the glass. Nearly a solid wall of lacing as well. Impressive. Lot of coffee in the aroma along with a solid shot of dark chocolate. Nice dark roasted malt and a touch of dark fruits. Rich roasted malt, espresso, and dark chocolate on the taste. The chocolately roast just carries on for what seems like forever and is perfect with the silky smoothe mouthfeel provided by the oats in the mash. The more I drink this, the more I pick up on some plums and dates as well. Just a moderate bitterness that is enough to balance out the sweetness. Overall, one of the better oatmeal stouts I have had. Lots of roast and chocolate and a great mouthfeel. A wonderful dessert beer.

Had at the Tap Room in St. Louis in the summer of 2011 or thereabouts. Very nice beer. Didn't let good notes for this.
