Roasted chocolate aromas. Coffee flavors. Finishes with a little orange peel and bitterness. Overall it is just some oatmeal stout. Huhzubendah (3736) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 2, 2012
On draft at the brewery.
The beer is black with an inch of thick, beige head resembling wet sand. The aroma is of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. The flavor is very pleasant with more chocolate and cocoa nicely balanced with roasted malt. The body is thin, but not watery, making this a very drinkable brew. Surprisingly delicious.

Coffee and chocolatey flavors in that order, this is one good stout. Pours dark with a perfect head. Sweet aroma. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
Bomber at laser wolf. Black, flattish. Fudgy aroma with ovaltine. Soft, slightly oily palate. The flavors match--mellow chocolate and oat milk creaminess. Good! More carbo would really help.

Dark brown. No head. Light fudgey aroma w hints if chocolate. Body is a bit thin, with little malt character, perhaps a bit fudgey.

Dark brown in color, thin tan head. Light dark malt aroma with some chocolate coming through. Decent oatmeal sweet flavor this was a light easy drinking brew. smith4498 (3670) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2012
Pours dark brown color with tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and chocolate. Burnt malt flavor with some bittersweet chocolate. Medium body with soft carbonation. Too burnt and ashy tasting for me. craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2012
Bomber from total wine in Jensen Beach. Black pour with almost no head and very low carbonation. Burnt / roast malt nose with sugar and light dark fruits. Med body with sweet residual sugars, dark fruits and roasted malts. Sweet and dry finish with black malts and light dark fruits. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2012
22oz bottle, shared with Kevin during Spring Break 2012 in Siesta Key. Nice, thin light brown head. Good lace. Nice, rich sweet taste. A little bit of bitter. Very light carbonation, easy to drink. Reasonably dry texture. Nice, hearty, toasted malt and chocolate aroma. Slightly sticky, thicker texture. Very enjoyable, great to wash a sandwich down with.

From notes. First reviewed 1/31/2012. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
The beer itself pours a dark chocolate brown color with a soft ruby tint in the corner of my pint glass. A small foamy tan head forms on the pour, fading to a small film and a ring that clings to the edges of the glass.
The aroma is pleasant, simple, and smooth. Milk and dark chocolate, flaked oats, and a little bit of coffee. The flavor generally follows the aroma, with a smooth and gentle flavor. Up front the flavor has a milk chocolatey sweetness and a dark chocolate bitterness that evolves over the sip. This bitterness blends with the oats to form the malt presence, develops a bit of coffee flavor, and finally turns to a soft, general earthy bitterness at the end. The finish is slightly bitter and has a bit of chocolate left.
This drinks a little bit bigger and thicker than the modest 4.7% ABV would indiciate. The carbonation has a smooth creaminess that is partially interrupted by more vigorous bubbles.
This unfortunately named, since I found it to be more of an average Oatmeal Stout than something truly out of the ordinary.
