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.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle sample at Nejaime’s, MA. Pours rich brown with a big, beige foam head. Moderate roast nose, some chocolate. Wow flavor with more moderate roast, some charred malts, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, hints of bourbon. Medium bodied with average creamy carbonation. Warm finish with lots of dark chocolate, burnt sugar, charred wood, light burnt grass bitterness. Superb beer. Great balance all around.

355ml bottle from Utobeer drunk at home. Says after dinner drink but i had it as an aperatif. Black beer with lasting tan head. Not a huge aroma. Big bit syrupy. Yes some choc some coffee. Not exactly intense. Definitely a bit boozy. I was expecting a bit more. Ok though

Bottle at home, from Cotteridge Wines, 20/07/13. Mid black with a tan head that dissipates to a thin pond like covering atop the glass. Nose is roast malt, porridge with diary milk, light booze, dark fruits. Taste comprises chocolate maltesers, porridge with shavings of chocolate, light booze, dark toffee fudge. Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation with a little prickle, light booze coated finish. Decent offering, the booze is pretty well managed for a 9%er, not a huge amount of depth but an easy drinker!

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.

mcberko (14378) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2012
Sampled on tap at Elizabeth Station, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of oats and chocolate malt - very inviting. Flavour of chocolate malts, oats and a mild sweetness. Full-bodied and chocolatey. ABV is no where to be detected - drinks like a 5% oatmeal stout. Delicious stuff.
