Bottled. Pours dark black with a medium tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, toast and coffee. Smells better than it tastes. Chocolate and roasted malt. I was expecting more sweetness with an oatmeal stout. Finishes with a burnt toastiness. decent

Nothing really doing it for me with this stout. About average. Carbonation a little high for the style, which messed up the feel a bit. Sweet chocolate malt was ok. Balance towards the sweet side. Might be better on tap or perhaps sitting in bottle too long. Not a bad beer, just sort of forgettable.

Bottle from Old Town. Pours a deep brown to black with a finger of beige foam that lingers. Milk chocolate aromas with some chocolate cookie and soy sauce notes. Creamy and soft on the palate with a roasty bitterness that comes out. Roasty finish that lingers.

12floz bottle, BOD: 10.16.2017, $1.75 unit cost, nonic glass. Pours with a one finger head atop a dark body with hues of brown that show in the light. Smooth aroma invokes roasted and to a lesser extent sweet qualities. Dark chocolate is the dominant flavor, but there is some subtle dark fruit sweetness too (charcoal when taken in bigger gulps). Of course there is the given coffee component. Body is medium and creamy feeling. I self recommend to me, I do.

MaltOne (417) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 16, 2017
Very nice. Pours opaque, dark coffee brown with large puffy tan head. Dark roasted aroma, coffee. Taste is rich lightly sweet, dark roasted toast, coffee, nutty notes, with a slightly acidic/ashy/hoppy finish. Full bodied palate. Overall excellent oatmeal stout.

Pour dark with a thick, foamy head. Aroma is of sweet chocolate and soy sauce. Taste is sweet chocolate with a slight bite of hops. A solid stout with a good deal of availability to people of all beer tastes.

On tap at the brewpub. Long time ago. This was the first and the best one of the night. The type of sweet stout I enjoy. I have little recollections on details. Shameless tickmark here for the hoarding.

On tap. Yummy stout, very nicely balanced. Dark, toasty and just a bit of sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Meijers, pours creamy brown. Nose is full chocolate, coffee, dried fruit. Palate is creamy chocolate, red grapes, coffee, hoppy finish. Great sweet stout! Nicely balanced.
