Fully black with a mildly lasting tan skin. Aroma first of chlorine, then rich milk chocolate. Raspberry jam on grahams. Vanilla with some plum presence underneath. Distant roast and chocolate chip cookies. Clean, sweet taste of bland coffee - cream, sugar - with a touch of tannin. Sharp and smoky, with some astringency of pine resin and soap. A soft touch of grape seed extract, and something stingingly clean like fabric softener. Creamy and tired texture. Meekly bitter finish. Definitively uninteresting; decent.

Bomber. Dark, dark, dark with a nice mocha head that has some good lacing. Aromas of toasted oats, fruits, smoke and chalk. Taste is smokey oats mixed with some roasted malts and cigar tobacco. Light flavors of dark fruits on the finish. Easy to drink. Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 17, 2007
On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Opaque jet black with a thin, fine, medium-tan head. Sweet, dark roasted malt aroma with pronounced fruitiness over a perceived oatmeal toastiness. Sweet and malty with "burnt" grain, toffee, fruit and raisin flavors. Body is surprisingly thin and light for the style which leaves a somewhat unsatisfying finish. jason (1836) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Bottle. Dark body with thin head. aroma is of rich chocolate, sweet oatmeal. Flavor is smooth, rich and creamy. The oatmeal is done right, balanced well. Lightly bitter chocolate taste. elmatador00 (519) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Pours a dark black with a white head. Hints of oatmeal, roasted malts and barley. Has a cocoa aroma. Finishes with low carbonation, and a sweet burnt malt flavor.

Excellent night cap at the Cleveland’s Winking Lizard. Oily with no lacing but thicker int he taste then I expected. Mocha and coca in taste--nice iwth a smooth finish. RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2007
Pours pitch black with a massive dark tan head. Nose is thick with chocolate. Not overdone by any means. Flavor is thick with a mild coffee edge. The flavor doesn’t really live up to what has preceeded it. Overall quietly sweet. Feel is pretty thick as you’d expect from the style. Very drinkable. Upon my first sip, I probably downed 1/4 of the bottle because it was so smooth and I couldn’t help myself. Overall a pretty darn good oatmeal stout.

Pretty damn good stout. Dark DARK stout, very chocolaty. Coffee is also present in this stuff. emacgee (4705) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Poured a very impressive dark black. medium light brown head. Roasty nose. Coffee and bakers chocolate abound along with a unique sweetness possibly from the oat. Flavor is sweet, very sweet, chocolate and coffee. Burnt roasted character here as well. I enjoyed this sweet stout. pintsize (1041) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Bottle. Very deep brown color with tan thick head. Rich, roasted chocolate aroma. The first sip is indicative that it is, without a doubt, an Oatmeal Stout. Rich and creamy with a good flavor. Not too heavy. Nice subtle bitterness. Good overall, just want more of the flavor.
