jet black, an initialy dark brown head that left to quickly for my liking. pleasant to drink, mild oatmeal. hops are constantly present beneath the surface keeping it interesting. thick and very coating. A good stout. Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2002
Nice burnt flavor, but the alcohol is a little too apparent for my tastes. Try the Samuel Smiths.

Huge creamy light brown head. A bitter chocolaty flavour that mixes pretty well with the roasted malts. Not bad. apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2003
Aroma is chocolatety and inviting, but the flavor doesn't support that so much. It is pretty creamy, and very strong tones of lactose and also very yeasty. Not quite sweet enough, in my opinion, to be called a sweet stout - it's too smokey. I think that Young's Oatmeal Stout is superior, but even more so, Heartland Brewery's Oatmeal Stout if you can get it. The bitter finish puts me off, but really this isn't a bad beer, I'm just making it sound that way, I guess. stoutosaurus (157) - Clinton, Mississippi, USA - JUL 5, 2003
Pretty good. Very rich flavor just as can be expected. Not terribly oatmealy, but good nonetheless.

Aroma is hoppy with some oats and malt hiding in the background. Pours a deep brown with a thin tan head. Beer has good carbonation, but a thin mouthfeel. Odd for an oatmeal stout. Strong bitterness that stays well after the beer is gone. Some roasted notes with definite oatmeal taste. Light chocolate. Don't know what it is, but this beer doesn't leave a lasting impression.

Nice stout coloration, including a nice darker creamy head which ran off quickly. Aroms is a little bit hidden. Flavor is a nice rounded malt character, with a decent crispness at one end and the other a good grain feel to it. Not a bad stount, but lacking in the sweetness dept. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2004

Dark brown. Cocoa nose, with a touch of menthol. Creamy milky mouthfeel. Not very roasty. Medium bitter. Long finish. Nice hops presence, considering the style. Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - NOV 28, 2004
Muddy brown body below an average tan head. Nice vanilla, chocolate, mocha and malt aroma. Good hop balance, with a bit of hop aftertaste. Another qulity brew from a California Micro Staple.
