On tap at the brewpub with golubj. Poured a dark brown to black color. Aroma of oats, oatmeal, cocoa, and roasted malt. Not overly sweet in the flavor or aroma. I thought that was good. Flavor was oaty, coffee, and roasted matl. Pretty solid beer.

On tap @ the brewery. Great, rich oatmeal nose with good complexity. Flavor was full, with chocolate and malt, with a very smooth mouthfeel. Very nice brew.

On tap @ Buffalo Bills poured a clear dark reddish black with a small dissapating tan head. Aromas of coffee, bitter chocolate, vanilla and a hint of smoke. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roasted malt, milk chocolate, a hint of coffee and some roastiness with a smooth lightly bitter finish.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - DEC 22, 2004
On tap- Poured pitch black with a thin head. Far too carbonated, in my opinion. Judging by the other ratings, maybe they just had the CO2 screwed when they kegged. The oatmeal flavors where great but unfortunately, thats all this beer had. A good stout for people who dont like stouts.
