Beerfest in Chilton. This was a nice sweet stout. Aroma is almost smoky. Tastes sweet with some oatmeal-like qualities in the flavor. Nice.
I had a generous head on my sample, and I found it darker than what is described in many of the ratings here. Generous flavor, robust, yummy, light hopping, good malt sweetness. (On tap at brewpub in Hayward, WI) Sammy (13013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2015
A tad thin and dry stout for a sweet stout, but drinkable. Black bodied without a lasting head. Some oatmeal and sugar and roast. Nero55 (947) - Nevada, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Draft. Clear dark brown with medium creamy tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malt, and a hint of coffee. Very light (unusual for an oatmeal stout), creamy, roasted malt, and slight burnt astringency with a dry finish. EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Very dark, black malt, some caramel and coffee, identifiable grain and, well as the name suggests, oak, and I’d say a bit smoked. Sweet and good. Ratman197 (15636) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2012
16 oz can poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee and bakers cocoa. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a watery finish. Flavors of roasted malt, coffee and bitter chocolate with a smooth watery lingering roasty finish.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at Angry Minnow on Nov. 18, 2011. On nitrogen. Very dark ruby-black pour with a huge creamy nitro head. Nose was roasty and sweet. Smooth creamy palate. Taste was mild roast, not as much sweetness. Very good stuff. dcschiller (2211) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 17, 2011
(16oz can courtesy of Nuplastikk). Pours. A dark brown color with creamy tan head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma has cocoa, coffee and a bit of dark fruit. Taste is roasty bitter and slight sweetness. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Not a sweet stout at all. Very dry and roasty. nuplastikk (6514) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 5, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2011 16oz can picked up in Wausau WI. Pours an opaque brown black with a thin, steady beige head which laces the glass. The aroma is a little suspect, with some butterscotch tones, lots of butter. I’m not what they were going for for, but this comes off almost like a Caribbean Stout on nitro. Chalky, brown sugar and chocolate tones, not unlike an Eastern European Dunkel, cheap burnt raisin finish. Grows on you for sure. I enjoyed this a lot more the second time I had it. esjaygee (3902) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2009
On tap at the GTMW. Opaque brown with a thin tan head that moderately laces my glass. Aroma of roasted malt and mild chocolate. Taste of mild roasted malt, light chocolate and very mild oatmeal. A bit thin, kind of reminded me a bit of guinness. Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2009
On tap at the Wisconsin Micro-Brewer’s Beer Fest. Poured deep brown with a short-lived cap of beige head. The aroma opened with an odd sourness and vegetal notes over toasted chocolate and a pinch of vanilla.. it lost the weirdness as it breathed, but it still wasn’t all that good. The flavor had mostly black patent maltage at the core joined by some baker’s chocolate.. vanilla and a pinch of caramel came through on the finish. Medium-bodied with some sourness on the palate that definitely didn’t help.. otherwise smooth feel. This seemed slightly off.
