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.

ben4321 (3849) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/10/12

Aroma: The nose is fairly subtle, roasted coffee and chocolate malts, and a little toast
Appearance: This beer pours a dark brown-black color without much head or lace
Flavor: The taste is light-medium sweet, with a good amount of roasted flavor, and a mild bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, though it leans light for the style, with a soft carbonation, and a mild dryness
Overall Impression: This one was another solid one from the beer camp series, but it wasn’t a top of style example for me. Still though, this is a good one, and definitely worth trying.

Bottle. Dark brown pour, almost black, cream light tan head. Milk chocolate, roast, cream, and oats. Mouthfeel is fairly heavy. This pretty good, well worth trying once.

Suttree (5127) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Black, big brown head. Smells like an oatmeal raisin cookie served with a cup of coffee. Flavor is coffee, some sweet fruity notes, and a dry woody finish. Nicely full bodied.

radagast83 (4548) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2012
12oz bottle from Beer Camp box set. Poured a dark brown color with a medium sized, creamy tan head. Aroma was plenty of roasted malts, milk chocolate, cocoa, and some oat, cereal notes. Flavor was pretty great - oat notes, with plenty of malts, milk chocolate. Alcohol is really well masked here. Perhaps a little rough around the edges, but really enjoyed it.

thetmaxx (745) - West Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Poured from the bottle, dark, nice tan creamy head. No lacing. Aroma is roast and chocolate. Flavour is roasty, not so much chocolate. More oak, vanilla, and some of the alcohol heat. The palate shows some oatmeal. Overall fantastic!

bnoel09 (416) - Elk Grove, California, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Poured into a shaker. Jet black with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate milk/mocha with very little roastiness present. Flavor is much more complex than the aroma suggests. Roasty with vanilla and oak notes, some chocolate and coffee, and some alcohol. Full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel from the oats and a long finish. Overall a very nice stout.
