I think that beers need to stop calling themselves oatmeal stouts unless they have a distinct oatmeal flavor and feel. This has neither, but has malt and faint chocolate flavor aroma and flavor. The use of nitrogen gas definitely gives this a great look, thick and creamy but I think it takes away from flavor. The finish is fine, but doesn’t leave you wanting to take another sip.

Nice dark body with a tan head. Smoky, roasted malts coming up rather nicely in the aroma. Flavor is like drinking a breakfast meal, and in that respect the beer has done quite well. Nice and sweet. A little thin on the body, but otherwise, quite good.

Tan head, nice lace, sponge like in it's density, ruby to dark brown color; floral/rosy aroma, kinda tastes like cherrios and dark chocolate milk, with some late bitterness and roasted grain. Nice, unique oatmeal stout.

Black body, beige/brown head standing throughout consumption. Aroma of light caramel. Not too dark. Smooth palate, slightly biting hop yet clean finish. I will try this again for sure.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Truly a pitch black body, a few fingers of fluffy khaki head recede to a thin cap that goes on to retain from start to finish.
Loads of fresh oatmeal, milk chocolate, some faint dry flaky hops, fresh cream, some brown ale characteristics.
Super smooth and velvety, oatmeal, slightly bitter chocolate... incredibly smooth and easy to drink. I think this growler’s gettin’ kicked tonight no problem.

very dark black color with a tan head, Nice aroma, surprised by how strong the carmel flavor was, pretty good overall beer, I liked the mocha porter better, but this may have been a close second

very dark with a scent and taste of bittersweet chocolate and coffee. smooth finish with very slight oat nut. more of a chocolate coffee stout than an oatmeal stout, but still very good.
