COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with over 200 pounds of organic rolled oats in each batch, this smooth-as-silk stout is brimming with darkly roasted malts and rich notes of chocolate and coffee. A mocha-topped, black-as-night body gives way to a surprisingly smooth, full-bodied experience in this unfiltered offering.

This stout is very much roasted coffee/chocolate-centric. The robustness found here doesn't settle on the palate as well as it could but...umm...it's organic so I guess it's a good trade off? A fairly middle of the road beer that was kind of a strange choice for cross-country distribution.

canary dog (680) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - FEB 8, 2004
A relatively unexciting micro-brewed dry stout. Not a lot of flavor, save a bit of roastiness. Very little head.

Rich burnt chocolate aroma, a little salt, some rasins. Thin head, black body. Molasses, burnt coffee and cream flavors. A bit thin.

nice oaty aroma, medium brown, very dry and oaty, weak body, simply too dry and bitter

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Pours dark and deep black color, I can't see through the glass when held up to a light, decent creamy light brown head that leaves good lacing in my glass, has a chocolate and coffee aroma. Dark roasted malty chocolate flavors, medium body that has a soft and creamy mouthfeel, nice bitter and sweet chocolate flavors in the finish, well done

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Dark brown with tan head. Decent oatmeal stout, though it doesn't compare to Sam Smith's -- roasted malts, chocolate and oatmeal.

Shag (2649) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Dark appearance with a moderate off white head. Aroma is chocolate and oatmeal. Flavor is coffee, chocolate, and oatmeal. Bittersweet aftertaste. After this malthead paradise of an evening I'm dying for an IPA :)

I am rating the Otter Creek version, which I understand came out a few months ago. All coffee here in a light black pour. Defineatly a coffee lovers delight here. I'd like to try this over some Haagen Daaz Vanilla. These guys also make a Roasted Garlic Mustard and a nice Beer Mustard worth trying.
