I paid $1.69 for a 12-oz single. Holy smokes! I was away from the computer when I reviewed this beer on paper. I couldn't wait to get back here and post this one! Black- inch of fluffy, creamy looking brown head. Light, only when held up to a VERY high wattage bulb, will trickle through here. One gorgeous brew. Sweet chocolate scent. WOW! Just about knocks me on my ass it's so good! Perfectly balanced. Cold coffee-- the best (THE BEST, I say) cold coffee I've had- slight hints of chocolate and winter fruits linger within... wow. VERY smooth and creamy- a dream come true! OUTSTANDING beer. I wish I would have picked up more than a single... well, this beer alone is enough to make me go to the beer store tomorrow =)

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2005 The best oatmeal stout Ive had yet. I was left wanting more. Full body, full flavor, with hints of chocolate. So dark that people thought I was drinking cola. Probably the best beer that Ive had yet.

This beer was my kind of stout. velvety smooth and rich. Like most stouts pours very dark with a light brown top next to a small head. Aroma of caramel, malt, chocolate and vanilla. This stout was very easy to drink and had a very soft hop flavor and bitterness right on the back end. This was a nice drink. I will be getting this one again for sure.

Fantastic, sweet stout!! Great, malty aroma, nice dark, opaque appearance with chocolate colored three finger head and almost total lacing on the glass. The taste made me fall in love with it!! Mouth feel is creamy and thick, very little bitterness, with roasted malts, chocolate and coffee on the finish. This is a great stout, highly recommended!!

I wrote a review for this years ago and its disappeared. It was one of my first high end oatmeal stouts and set the standard. Served at a good temperature and I poured a small to medium sized tan head that settled to a light cover that lasted all the way down and some lace. Color is an opaque black brown. Aroma is malt, roast, cocoa, hint vanilla. Flavors like nose with just right carbonic tang and some bitterness that all balance just right. Body is full and carbonation is exactly right. Finish is like flavor that slowly taper over a while. World class beer.

Pours solid black with a brown head that starts off thumbs width in thickness and dwindles down from there, leaving a slight head on around the edges and in batches across the rest of the surface. A rich and sweet oaty aroma from the malts partnered with a supporting chocolate. Absolutely beautiful. Overall, Id say this falls into the sweeter side of oatmeal stouts. Starts off sweet with some cocoa and coffee flavor, middle you get the characteristic oaty flavor, and finishes off with a great roastiness. A wonderful moutfeel to this; velvet, creamy, and medium bodied. Simply a great oatmeal stout, my biggest complaint is that it isnt more readily available here in Denver. This should be a staple in every liquor store.

This beer introduced me into the wonderful world of Oatmeal stouts. This beer is velvety and dark. Pours thick and smooth with a caramel colored and scented head that lasts a decent amount. The rich coffee, caramel, toffee and slight vanilla aromas meet a delicious smooth taste that seems to coat in inside of your mouth. Easy drink and great introduction into O.S.s and stout in general for the dark beer weary.

Love this beer overall. Pours a deep dark brown with a nice frothy head. Roasty aroma of coffee, chocolate, nutty caramel and creamy malt that all carry over into the smooth creamy taste.

This is a great beer. Silky smooth with a oatmeal flavor. This is an easy drinking beer. Definitely worth a try.
