Almost black in color...great head on it...a good moreso 'sipping' beer, only served on tap, I wish they'd bottle this stuff and sell it, but it's a very impressive stout... HighlanderOne (1377) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2001
Had this again during Musikfest 2001, right after finishing a Guinness. richlikebeer (839) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2005
This is very similar to Guinness, actually a bit more complex and somewhat nuttier flavor.
On tap at BBW, an almost black glass with a persistant, thin tan head. Chocolates and some coffee are strong in the nose, and lead into a heavy chocolate flavor. Malts and coffee are minor taste elements, and they are blended smoothly into the sweetness of the oatmeal, which I could definitely taste. A rich velvety mouthfeel gave way to just a tad of bitterness when the glass got a little warm, but this is easily the best brew at BBW, and I may be biased as a local, but this beats alot of the stouts I’ve had to this point.

This is a very rich tasting stout. Very flavorful and even better than Guinness. obxdude10 (2378) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Loved this stout, black in color with a nice full & rich brown head, excellent roasted flavors, nicely balanced with a medium body, almost like a Murphy's or even a Guinness in its body, this was so drinkable, hints of chocolate, a bit of a dry finish, overall a great stout

Black, with dense tan head. Full-bodied. Roasty and sweet with a slight bitterness. Lots of coffee and chocolate. SiddFinch (156) - Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2002
Great tasting stout. I've had this a few times and once it seemed a little flat. This was an exception though. If you ever get to Bethlehem, PA, you won't be disappointed with the Brew Works. They usually have a few Belgians on tap and they seem to get better every year. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2007
This was an outstanding oatmeal stout. I felt it was a winning version and had a nice flow with that excellent chocolate flavor. scraff (2125) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Draft - Black, creamy dark tan head. Deep roasted sweet coffee aromas warm to notes of milk chocolate and hints of blackberry. Dark chocolate roasty tones mingle with soft caramel oat and coffee-like flavors. A touch of back end bitterness pulls this together very well. Medium bodied, soft smooth carbonation, lightly bittersweet finish. A great session stout...
