Tessic (1077) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2008
This stout poured a deep black colour with a nice rich tan head. To the nose there is scents of cocoa, oatmeal, cream and smoke. First taste is smooth and smokey with flavours of cream and molassass, with a tiny bit of chocolate. Finish is thick and lasting with the smoke flavour.

DubC5000 (305) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Jet black body with minimal head. Dark chocolate and bacon aroma, accentuated by hints of sweet malt. Creamy chocolatey flavor, lots of dark malt with a pleasantly nutty, lightly salted aftertaste, along with a little wheat. No hop bitterness, with only the slightest grassy hop flavor. Thick, molasses-y mouth feel.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Deep brown with a thin slowly dissipating tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, oatmeal and coffee. Flavor is heavy on the roasted malts with molasses, oatmeal and chocolate as well. Mild bitter finish.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2008
It poured black in color with a thick head of fine light-brown bubbles. The aromas were sweet with scents of maple syrup and oats. The color and scents have me expecting a thicker, richer beer than reality brings. The palate was rather light and smokey with some bitter hops evident on the finish.

WeeObese (18) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 29, 2008
Bottle. Deep dark brown color, with a medium sized tan head. Great initial smell with roasted malt flavors and almost a slightly bourbon/oaked aged flavoring(?). Bourbon/oak flavoring vanishes, giving way to roasted chocolate malt aromas. Flavor is well balanced between roasted, chocolate and hop flavors and slight oat-like finish. The mouth feel is slightly lighter than I prefer for an oatmeal stout. Overall a very drinkable beer with good balance.

skmikeg (1822) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2008
very creamy, rich flavor. notes of choclate and coffee with a little hoppyness to it. overall all, a great oatmeal stout.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle. Dark oak black color. Limited beige head, mostly ringing the glass and lingering. Mocha, coffee, somewhat milky and creamy in aroma. Nutty. Flavoring is flat, like black coffee gone cold, albeit with more pleasing finishing notes. Thin in body, certainly smoother than most oatmeal stouts. Itll work but memorable enough to come back to.

Juelze (1144) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 23, 2008
Pours a dark brown color with frothy tan head. Aroma is light chocolate and light toasted malt. Also has a slight buttery nose to it so Im guessing this bottle is past its prime. Taste is light chocolate and coffee with a mild hop finish. Finish is a bit too bitter for my liking. Meh.

illidurit (2286) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 13, 2008
Dark brown color with a mocha head of about a finger. Leaves some solid lacing on the glass. Chocolate and roasty aromas emanate from the foam. Flavor is hearty chocolate malt with a little fruity hop character. Too much carbonation hurts the mouthfeel and disrupts the richness of the body.

3.4
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Derek881 (1260) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2008
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. The aroma was heavy with malt, mostly chocolate character, with some lighter coffee and caramel notes, and a touch of hops. A thick, black color with a creamy, dark tan head that had average retention and size. Sweet, malty and chocolate/coffee-like flavor, with some bitterness for balance. The palate was a little bit too watery, with average carbonation, but some good fizz; a creamy, wetter mouthfeel. Definitely a very solid oatmeal stout, but falls short of some of my favorites.
