atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Pours black with creamy but thin tan head. Aroma is noticeable from several feet away. Its toasty, roasted, chocolate, earthy, beef jerky, and some sweetness but more lighter malt aroma than expected from a stout. Its a nice aroma but it doesnít seem to fit the style. The flavors are smooth and dry. Roasted coffee and sweetness that is toffee like. Oatmeal and a strong bready feel lend to a nice sweet and dry finish where the roasty malt lingers.

nike (889) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Excellent sweet stout. Black color with tan head. Creamy chocolate caramel taste, with hints of coffee malts. Good balance with hops, roasted barley and malts. Not overly sweet, but definitely hint of sweetness.

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Dark beer with a light tan head. Little lacing. Slight roastiness in the nose with a bit of oats and caramel. Sweet. Smooth velvety creamy mouth-feel. A slight bitterness. Very drinkable and almost a session beer.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Poured into a pint glass. A: Charcoal black color. Thick creamy head with good retention. S: Roasted dark malts. Oats and some coffee. Not strong enough. Grassy hops. T: Big phenolic taste that is a bit off-putting. Bitter hop backbone. Oats and dark malts create a bittersweet chocolate taste. Unwanted aftertaste. M: Medium body. Great carbonation. Really smooth. D: Just not what Iím looking for. This is my first oatmeal stout, so maybe I just donít like the style. Iíll try another one next chance I get. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-16-2008 00:24:26

Tranquillity (1387) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2010
Draught at Beer Temple in Amsterdam. Black body, with a huge thick light-brown head. Very nice cookie aroma, not too strong though. The palate and taste are amazing, with a depth and complexity and a long finish. Simple but simply great.

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2010
Black colour. White head which disappeared surprisingly quick. Chocolate smell. Really light taste. Aroma is milk chocolate and unfortunately a bit watery. Not really exciting beer, but not bad either.
