Dark brown pour. Aroma espresso walnuts oatmeal. Tastes well toasted bitter. Quite watery. I've enjoyed their other dark beers but this flagship didnt do it for me. BuckeyeBoy (8281) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Backlog from notes on tap at the brewery. Pours out a black topped with a tan head. Nose is nice sweet milk chocolate a little spice some vanilla maybe and a coffee touch. Taste is more of the nice sweet chocolate some coffee and a light spice. SinH4 (6114) - Garching b. M?nchen, GERMANY - JAN 18, 2017
Tap. Black color with tan ring. Aroma is chocolate, malty, cereals. Taste is cereals, chocolate. Super-silky oat mouthfeel. Nice, but it’s a bit too watery. ACHops (1614) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2017
On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours slightly watery dark black with thin mocha head. Aroma is roasty dark chocolate malt, fresh coffee. Taste is similar - rich, roasty flavor in spite of a light mouthfeel. Tons of flavor for a relatively low abv stout. Very nice.

On tap at The Loyal Legion, pours a deep dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma brings out notes of dry cocoa and light toasted malt. Flavour is smooth, with notes of cocoa and light toasted malt. Dry and fairly complex. Light-bodied but still delicious. Very good. Ferris (16274) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
Draft - Roasty notes and some oatmeal. Deep black with a nice light brown head. Dark roast and a nice mouthfeel. Solid but nothing special. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Flight pour on tap at the brewpub (Corvallis, OR). Pours a darker deep blackish brown hue, a near opaque middle shows some healthy roasty cocoa brown glow on the edges and bottom. Creamy light brown head atop stays as a pleasant frothy layer, solid ringer with subtle layer laces nicely. Aromas present toasty and roasty oats, black malts and some cold press coffee. Caramel and cocoa elements offer some depth and darkness, jabs of sweet and dark roast mingle well. Initial is medium bodied, gentle smoke and roasty coffee hit the palate. A bit dark and bitter, a more dry appeal in the body and on the palate than expected. Nothing sweet or overdone. A more dry and toasty experience, a dab of silkiness into the backend. A touch creamy, the oats smooth this one over the palaate but again, this one never ends up sweet or malt driven. Dry and subtle roasty finish, lingering cocoa, toasty biscuits and bitter nib. Pretty masterful Oatmeal Stout, eschewing a sweeter chewy experience for a more dry and bitter feel at times without sacrificing the toasty, roasty and cocoa appeal and flavor. Pretty and good on the palate.
