Decent, with a modestly dry backbone holding together a mocha-tinged sweetness. The oatmeal eases out the texture, leaving the brew velvety despite its thin appearance. Finishes dry and quick. Not enough of the big-bad stout flavors for me in this bottle; it could be great with just a few tweaks. Still worth trying, though.
12 ounce bottle. Not bad but not particularly memorable. Definitely had better stouts, better oatmeal Stout's, seen better lacing, and sniffed better aromas.

This absolutely hit the mark for me, and with less than a month before coding out. Pours black with a decent sized tan head that leaves some spots of lace. Nose involves dark chocolate, woodsy forest notes of tree bark and light pine, marshmallow, and an after the rain earthy quality. Somewhat sweet, not overly, with quite a bit of bitterness, though not inappropriate. Medium bodied, oily and slick, pretty actively carbed, surprisingly effervescent with a scrubbing quality, finishing rich with notes of toasted malt and chocolate. Really dug this, would have grabbed a 6er had I known what I was in for. Good work. Onslow (1512) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2017
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear but very dark brew, small head that immediately settles to just a bit of scrum. Moderate aroma of toasted malt with coffee and some chocolate notes. Taste is sweet malt up front, roasted notes, some coffee. Middle is a little more coffee. Ends the same. Palate is weak - watery, almost no carbonation, unsatisfying.The weak palate and unremarkable taste profile makes me pine for a better stout. I’m disappointed - this really missed the mark for me.

Way better than I was originally expecting. strong flavor, more coffee than chocolate, pretty good consistancy, nice and thick, fine low carbonation, not much head. This is up there with founders, just a notch lower I think. Not quitee as much flavor or thickness, but dang good Wim (4108) - Weelde, BELGIUM - NOV 7, 2016

Draft at firetap, black beer, skiff of almond colored foam. Aroma is chocolate and dark malt. Taste is chocolate, dark malt, oats. Palate is smooth, carbonation almost nitro. Nice stout. canddw (100) - - AUG 27, 2016
Black stout with no head, softly carbonated. Fruity nose with smokey, solvent hints. Taste is fizzy, smokey, berries. Fizzy gently bitter finish. A really nice stout.sirzekel (65) - Georgia, USA - JUL 25, 2016
