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.

A - Pours a dark brown-black color with a finger of frothy chocolate colored head. The head fades down at a fairly slow pace leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of roasted milk chocolate with some vanilla and oats and a bit of coffee. T - Starts off with some roasted milk chocolate, vanilla, some some cola flavor. Through the middle, some coffee flavor comes through with some oats. The finish is a mix of milk chocolate with some roasted coffee, vanilla, and a bit of earthy hops. M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and creamy with a roasted and sweet finish. D - Very drinkable. Really nice mouthfeel with great overall balance.

I think the QC may have been off on this one which is a shocker considering it is SN. But it is the beer camp and they proabbly were hanging by a thread with it. It has some rotten fruit flavors to go with a buttery and cocoa-y stout.

12 oz. Pours jet black with a decent creamy head that fades. No lace. Roasty chocolatey nose, with a little pleasantly musky melon rind hanging around. Creamy medium body, silky smooth, soft carb. Roast, chocolate, and a little touch of fruit sugar on the mid palate. Mild sweet roasty finish. Nice.

bottle. Pours nearly black with a small cream tan head. Aroma is sweet and cocoa, a little bit of a chocolate cake note and some doughiness with a slight roast, Flavor starts sweet with the same doughy cake chocolate character. Really nicely smooth and rich flavors with a slight bitter cocoa finish. Medium to medium full creamy body and a soft carbonation. very good

12 oz bottle from the 2012 variety pack bought from work. Pours impenetrable black with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasty, doughy bread. Taste is sticky sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Flavors include chocolate milk, licorice. Mouthfeel is oily. Dessert in a glass. Another winner from Beer Camp.

Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a deep brown appearance with a nice, dark brown head. Toasty, oaty, light coffee, dark chocolate, roasty, earthy aroma. A bit tangy, lightly boozy, burnt, roasty dark chocolate malty, caramel, vanilla, a touch smoky flavor. Not a huge fan of the flavor, it’s a bit overly bitter, but not bad.

jkwood04 (3742) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 17, 2012
12oz bottle. Looks dark. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee, and some sierra nevada hops. Flavor the same. Average to smooth texture. A good beer, but not the imperial stout.

12 ounce from the box. Nice dark beer with solid chocolate flavor. It has a nice bitter nose and good roast in the taste. Well done.
