On draft at the Beer Baron. I guess this one has been revived. It pours a dark brown color with a nice dark tan head. The aroma is full with chocolate and coffee. Medium roast. The flavor is really nice with strong dark chocolate, coffee, burnt toast and mild acidity. The body is light, but the oats add some substance to the palate that makes this a bit richer considering the low gravity. All the flavors are in balance. This is really a top notch oatmeal stout.

Draft @ Schooners. Pours a dark, clear, cola-brown color; creamy, fine-bubbled light-tan head; nice lacing. Nice, basic roasted notes and dark chocolate in the aroma. Medium body; medium-light CO2; no alcohol showing. Lengthy, rounded roastiness and dark chocolate, along with some connecting red fruitiness; comes together like a chocolate-covered cherry with muted fruitiness and just enough balancing, quiet bitterness; tasty and balanced. Nicely bitter finish: roasty, toasty, dry.

Cossacks19 (5) - Brentwood, California, USA - JUN 20, 2010 does not count
From the tap at the brewery. A good stout with some coffee flavors along with malt. Not very strong with any of the flavors but very drinkable.  very small off white head with no carbination. A very clean non-bitter finish that instantly make you want to have another one.

GABF 2009. Black in color with a nice creamy tan head. Aroma is roast, coffee, and chocolate. Flavor is more of the same, typical oatmeal stout profile, with chocolate and coffee mainly standing out. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, although maybe not as much so as you’d expect from an oatmeal stout, and body is medium. Pretty good overall. Maybe I’ll make it over to this brewery someday.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - OCT 1, 2009
9/28/09 notes: 2009 GABF Friday session. Rich coffe in the aroma, a pleasant surprise. Body is a bit light, as I find most oatmeal stouts tend to be. Flavor has the typical chocolate-coffee-roasts, but everything is muted. Still not a bad beer by any means, just not all that interesting to me.

(10/29/08) Bottle at Valley Brew brewery in Stockton (thanks a lot Mike!). Black with a brown head. Aroma of coffee. licorice notes and fruity notes. Sweet roasty flavor with some coffee, oatmeal notes and quite a bit of dark fruits. Finishes dry with some alcohol hints (?!). Full-bodied.

This dark brown ale poured with a rich fluffy tan head and a smoky aroma. There is an intense creamy chocolate flavor with notes of treacle, toffee and coffee. There is a little pleasant bitterness at the finish.
