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.

Terminus (3380) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 26, 2012
bottle-purchased at Jubilation in Albuquerque NM Aug 2012-pours opaque black with a small dark kacki soapy/somewhat sprtizy head. no lacing or legs here. nose is full of char. roast, lite astringency, tar, dark chocolate, alcohol-big nose! I think this beer would age pretty well. flavors of huge char, dark chocolate, roast, but mostly char here. a huge black patent malt bomb. finish is long with hints of alcohol, roast and char. body is somewhat fizzy for an IS however, could calm down with some age. A very solid rendition of this style however, not overly complex to be in the top tier of this class.

Bottle to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks good; pitch black with thin tan lacing. Smells of chocolate and malt. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Abv is hidden well too. Solid beer.

umich03jm (2897) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2012 Pours a deep black color with almost no head. Aroma is very roasty and coffee-like. Slight amount of chocolate comes through too. Taste is overpowering roasted coffee and not much else. Slightly sweet up front and very bitter in the finish. Finish has a pretty big alcohol burn too. Very thin and oily body is not very good here either. This beer should be better. Not complex enough and too much alcohol burn.

12oz bottle. Deep brown pour with a smaller sized tan head. Aromas potting soil, roast, coffee grinds, oats, and some chocolate. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, caramel, oats, earthy, and a splash of vanilla. Alcohol content well hidden for 9%.

Viscous and black on the pour with a finger of tan head. Rich oatmeal and toffee sweetness on the nose. Plenty of roasted malt, a nice creamy chocolate character, coffee, and some hints of vanilla to it as well. The flavor is pleasantly sweet with chocolate, toffee, and vanilla notes. A moderate roasted malt flavor along with a touch of coffee give a light bitterness. There’s a touch of licorice on the finish. Carbonation is a little high for me, but nothing that ruins the beer.

RyanK (261) - Rhode Island, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Pours a dark, impenetrable black, with a small coffee like head quick to dissipate. Smells of yeast, and more lightly vanilla and oats. Medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. Despite not smelling it, actually quite bitter. Hits with a dark malt bitterness, hits with some alcohol that the bitterness then balances out for a dry finish. If anything, taste more of dark coffee, just real bitter. Not bad but I’m still searching for the perfect Oatmeal Stout

Poured from bottle, pours a very dark brown with a tan head and lacing, aroma has a good amount of chocolate and malt, flavor has a nice chocolate front end with a finish malt and toffee, really not all that bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
