COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big oatmeal stout is midnight black in color--with a big roasty, mocha-like aroma. It has a silky body from the use of rolled oats, and a round and lasting finish. Perfect as an after dinner treat.

The beer has a black body, appearing dark brown at the edges, sporting a thin beige cap. The aroma is mild, with light scents of dark roast, molasses, a hint of chocolate. The flavor is roasty and chocooalty, with subtle coffee notes. The flavor is decent. A smooth and creamy mouthfeel with moderately low carbonation. Palate coating, with abv hidden well. While this beer has some nice things going on and shows potential, I find it to be generally unexciting. This was ok.

Brown/black with a nutty aroma, with slight tartness. Taste is the same, with bakers chocolate notes, and sprucey bitterness into the finish.

DYCSoccer17 (3226) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 2, 2012
On tap at the Davis Beer Shoppe. Roasted aroma with a slight sweet chocolate character. Mild metallic and anise notes are also present. Fairly pedestrian. Slightly transparent dark mahogany body with a creamy tan/mocha head present. Great lacing, and decent carbonation. Starts thick, and chewy with unsweetened chocolate flavors present. A bit ashy and burnt in the middle. Finishes with more sweetness and a little anise and pine. Pretty chewy and tasty.

DocLock (7481) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle from variety pack at Pat’s. Pours turbid jet black with creamy one-finger brown head and spare lace. Nose is roasty black patent and chocolate malt, cacao, and nuts. Tastes of roasty and slight charred chocolate malt, cacao, black licorice, and backup hops. Palate is rich, very complex, dense, and with well hidden alcohol, but not hidden so well you don’t realize that this is a big monster of a stout, and will destroy any lightweights who dare to drink more than one at a sitting.

12 oz bottle. Pours nearly black, and absolutely beautiful. A luscious thickness to it, with incredible mouthfeel. Taste is dark chocolate, with deep rich roastiness. Very, very good stout here. I’ll definitely be trying this again.
