Nice stuff. I haven't had any kind of stout in a while, and this made me wonder why I had been neglecting the style. Rich and silky, with coffee and dark chocolate. Sweet but not overly so. Opaque black, with a head the color of the "crema" on good espresso. A very sensual experience. (That may just be because I've been single for too long...) I drank this while watching Emir Kusturica's "Underground," which contains the most drunkenness I've ever seen in a movie, ever.

Pretty good - not the powerful goodness of their winter beer, but a hearty warmth of roasts and sweets on its own. Amazingly full bodied and smooth.

Pours with a tall, tan head of microbubbles with a creamy top. Black and opaque. Grainy aroma - actually similar to oatmeal (very interesting). Some cereal notes in the aroma as well. Toasty with a tiny hint of diacetyl. Mildly hopped. The diacetyl is really coming out after I breathe out through my nose. Too many stouts have this problem, IMO but some people must like this taste. It is not way off but is noticeable.

Another good stout. Strong roasted coffee and oat flavor and aroma, rich black pour, stong palate.

Found at Jungle Jimís in Fairlfield, OH. Almost black with no discernible head and minimal lacing. Creamy coffee aroma. Nice toasty flavor of coffee, nuts and some chocolate. Sweet and creamy finish. Rather enjoyable in my humble opinion.

Black, not alot of head, decent lace. Nose of cocoa, oats, coffee and a touch of hops. Rich malts,full body, moderate roast, bittersweet chocolate, smooth oatiness and a tame sweet finish. Decent sweet stout.

Re-rating this beer. Itís great and it won the bronze medal at the 2002 Great American Beer Festival. I think it deserved the gold in the Oatmeal Stout category. **** One of my favorite beer styles, this one lives up to all the writing on the label. Creamy and toasty, very subtle hops and dominated by the rich, dry finish. This oatmeal stout is highly recommended. Alcohol level is 6.4% by volume, slightly high for a stout.

Dark brown color and thick tan head. Roasted chocolate aroma. Sweet malty chocolate flavor. Very smooth and thick.

not a huge fan of stouts but this one is a little too sweet for my taste, slightly burnt for my taste

Roasty, sweet and smooth oatmeal stout. Hops present, but this is definitely a malt-lovers beer.
