Near black colour. Big up front oatmeal aroma with nuts and hints of chocolate and coffee. Incredibly appetizing. Starts off roasty, then fades to a great milk chocolate character - very smooth, sweet and pure. There is a light nuttiness in the finish for variety. Creamy, full mouthfeel. Satisfying light stout with all the elements you want in a traditional oatmeal stout. Ratman197 (15228) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2008

Not bad but a fairly one dimensional beer.
Draft sampler at the Columbus. Poured a dark brown color with a medium off-white frothy head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Medium smokey toasted malty aroma. Medium body. Medium roasted sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew. BeerandBlues2 (13718) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 12, 2007
Draught at BJs Aurora, CO. Pours opaque with a spare dark brown fizzy head, mostly diminishing. Aroma is heavy malt (burnt, chocolate, coffee), light hops (grass), heavy yeast (leather, dough) with notes of tar, smoke and prune. Full bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation and a metallic finish. Light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness; heavy roasted malt flavor.

On draught at the Columbus location. Pours black with a wispy off-white head and thin stringy lacing. Light coffee and chocolate aroma, as well as a bit of malt. Medium-bodied and smooth with a roasted malt character, and mild hops and coffee flavors underneath. The finish is creamy and smooth and leaves a chocolatey aftertaste. Pretty good, and an encouraging start to my first exposure to this brewub chain.

black, wispy beige head,
roasted and dark chocolate aroma with hints os espresso,
creamy oily body,
lots of dry roasted and dark chocolate flavor, nice coffee bitterness, long bitter finish,
the dark chocolate keeps the roasted and coffee characters in line and keeps them from being too overwhelming
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 7/10; Overall: 11/20
Tap at Cincy location. Pours dark brown with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is roasted malt with a sweetness from the oatmeal and a hint of chocolate. The flavor is drier than the nose may suggest. Pretty average roasted malt, oatmeal,and a touch of chocolate. Medium bodied, nothing is really jumping out at me with this one.

Poured up on tap at Citrus Park, FL location. They tried to serve me this ale in a chilled glass. But they were nice enough to go in the back and bring back an unchilled tumbler. The beer coming out of the tap was still way too cold and caused the beer to taste harsh, near acidic and not at all tasty. It poured up dark brown with tan to mocha head. The aroma was a little off until it finally warmed up when I started getting some chocolate, roasty malts, a bit of burnt malts, sweet molasses, nuttiness and a touch of coffee. Again once it started to warm up it began to taste pretty darn nice with an unwavering nuttiness mixed with roasty to chocolate notes and black licorice. I also get a mild burnt maltiness to go along with a tasty sweet molasses creating a pleasing balance. The oatmeal creamy mouth feel was only just there in the end due to the slightly over carbonation and being served generally too cold. Do yourself a favor and order this in a room temp glass and twenty minutes before you’re ready to drink it. If not it will taste like crap!! Get a clue BJs.
