12 oz. twist-off bottle, short blurb along the right side of label, no freshness date, sampled in a pint glass. Poured a dark chocolate brown with an tight, compact creamy tan head that leaves a minimal amount of laced sticking. Pleasant lightly roasted malt aromas of caramel, milk chocolate and faint scents of roasted barley grain. The oats lend an appealing light sweetness to the aroma. Smooth and easy drinkability, the body does needs a little heft for the style, but it doesn’t distract from taste. Velvety smooth roasted malts, caramel, milk chocolate and light colored coffee with a dash of sweetness from the oats. There is a good mild roasted bitterness that lasts through out the entire taste. The hops aren’t really detectable, maybe they contribute to some of the bitterness at the end. A subtle flavoful roasted nutty grain lingers a bit in the aftertaste. A pretty decent Oatmeal Stout, not really handicapped by the 4% ABV, quite enjoyable.

Pailhead (4817) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 20, 2007
On tap: The aroma is a simple combination of moderate chocolate and light roasted coffee. It’s a dark brown with a small beige head. The flavor starts with light-moderate chocolate with a well balanced roasted coffee finish and faint burnt grain in the finish. Medium bodied with somewhat lively carbonation for a stout.

nearbeer (3726) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Draft, brewpub at SLC airport. Nearly opaque black-brown with a small, lasting head. Aroma of dry cocoa and earthy spice. Flavor is dry cocoa and metallic herb. Medium bodied, mostly smooth, and slightly watery.

douglas88 (6021) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Bottle. Pours just like a cup of black coffee, and more than any beer I’ve ever had smells just like coffee too. Taste is a burnt malt, maybe some hops, and well...coffee. Not bad, but a little thin. Decent, worth a try for breakfast.

12oz bottle thanks to Padrefan98. Black pour with really nice tan head. Chocolate and coffee aromas with a lot of roastiness. similar flavors that actually surprised me. Pretty Good.

IrishBoy (3836) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Draft at the Brewpub, 10/5/07; too bad Utah doesn’t let them brew real beers! Nose of coffee; transparent very dark brown, with a big, thick, glass lacing, long lasting, tan head; Flavor of coffee, chocolate, oatmeal and light sweetness. Too bad only 4%!

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle: Dark brown, nearly black, large frothy beige head, dies somewhat quickly, sparce lacing.   Mild roasted malt nose, slight chalky cocoa with a hint of basement.   Minor lactose sourness on the tongue.   Roastiness is fairly week, and the body on this one is quite thin.   For an Oatmeal Stout its on the watery side for sure.   Very minor cocoa and roasted malts on the exit.   This one seems to be on the extreme lighter side of the style.   Clean, some flavor, but not a lot of umph!   Actually comes across as a watered down Porter.   Nothing on this one detracts, its just too minor and too weak to really be a stout.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - AUG 29, 2007
Poured an opaque black with a thin cap of head. The nose wasn’t real strong, mostly roasted malt with a touch of coffee and chocolate. The flavor was all chocolate and roasted malts that turned to a good coffee character as it warmed up. This had a rather thin mouthfeel for the style, which isn’t nessesarily a bad thing because it made for a more drinkable session stout. At 4.0% abv you can drink these all night.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Draught sample at Squatter’s Pub & Brewery, SLC. Tried two samples just to make sure. Light roasted grain, mild bitterness. Dark brown-black with no head. Watery body with medium carbonation. Tastes amazingly like the porter. Nutty roasted notes, mild coffee and chocolate. Light bitter finish. Not very good for a stout.

Great Utah Beer Run – Summer 2007
On Tap – Deep dark brown color a tad watery to color. No head. This had a chocolate and coffee aroma. Smokey and deep rich malts in the flavor with a tad watery feel. A nice dry stout this was a decent stout and turned out very good. If more malts used this would be one of the tops in the stouts of the world.
