Not a bad oatmeal stout from a local brewery. This is probable one of my favorite brews from this brewery.

Pours an opaque brownish black from the bottle worth thin lacy tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma is cold brewed coffee with hints of chocolate and soy, roast opens as it warms. Taste follows, drop the soy, add more coffee. Silky smooth mouth with no hint of the booze. Pretty nice breakfast beer.

Bottle from Samís Quik shop. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves a bit of lacing in the glass. Fairly big coffee on the nose. Lots of coffee on the tongue which naturally lingers after you finish it. Itís a little thin on the tongue but certainly very drinkable.

12oz bottle from Harrikaís Brew Haus. Black pour, zero visibility with fully lasting one finger thick frothy light brown head. Excellent lacing. Milk chocolate, coffee bean, dark malt, booze aromas. Light roasted coffee up front with a short milk chocolate finish. Dry texture, soft carbonation.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 26, 2014
Appearance: Very dark brown, near black body beneath a light tan head thatís a bit on the thin side.

Smell: Roasty nose of darkened malts with just a hint of basic chocolate and a touch of dark fruit.

Taste: A light chary, ashen roast with a minimal backing of chocolate and estery fruitiness. Minimal hop character, bitterness. While waiting for the coffee character and some soft, succulent oats to burst forward, well, thatís when you hit the drying, lightly fruity finish with a bit of alcohol. This ride is over.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Just a bit of medium carbonation.

Overall: A little thin and lackluster considering the words "oatmeal" and "coffee" being prominently featuring in its name.

12 oz bottle ($2.49) purchased at Johnís Grocery and poured into a pint glass at home. Almost black with a frothy tan head. Strong coffee and espresso aroma with roasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla and light caramel. Similar flavor, adding a mild earthy bitterness and a touch of ash. Medium body, creamy and pretty smooth, easy to drink. Pretty good. First rating from SC.

Thanks to drowland for the share. Oily dark brown pour. Fruit and coffee in the aroma. Real burnt and sweet in the taste. Some chocolates and hops. High carbonation. Pretty mediocre.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 22, 2014
3/22/14. 12oz bottle from 5 Points. Not quite black pour, more of a dark brown, almost black, I guess, with a small khaki head that fades and doesnít lace much. Burnt cheap coffee aroma, fruity esters, a bit of an alcohol burn... not too promising. Sweet flavor, a little fruity, burnt coffee, ashy, some dark chocolate. Lightly slick mouthfeel killed by burning carbonation. Meh.

Brewers have proven that fresh coffee and dark beer make a phenomenal combination. Thomas Creek brings something new to the table by adding coffee to an oatmeal stout. A brilliant idea, if you ask me. Like many of Thomas Creekís creations, this brew is gorgeous to look at. For a stout, though, I would liked to see a darker color and a bit more lacing on the glass - especially with an ABV of 8%. The aroma is almost perfect. Loads of fresh coffee with a bit of chocolate. While this is a completely drinkable brew, I wanted more balance between the coffee and oatmeal. The subtle hints of chocolate are delicious but they tend to get overpowered by the coffee. This beer also didnít quite capture the silky smoothness of an oatmeal stout, either. As a coffee stout, this beer is a great accomplishment. As a coffee oatmeal stout, it doesnít quite cut it. All nitpicking aside, this is a satisfying stout from a brewery that loves to buck beer conventions.

(Bottle). Well roasted malt and coffee aroma with brown-black complexion and tan head. The taste is somewhat charred malt with burnt coffee and some alcohol. Thin palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
