Bottle pour ---> tulip. Roasty and sweet malts are the first thing to hit the nose. Some metallic and slight hoppy tones come out next. Light chocolate aroma with a hint of plum or prune. Very faint fruity ester. Poured quite dark with a dark tan head. Solid lacing but quickly dispersing head. Taste is more hop-sided than expected. Some nice lingering roasted malt and hops make this one nice and bitter but not overly so. Light chocolate tones. Somewhat watery mouth-feel. Medium carbonation. Not bad.

Black pour with tan head (a little thin) and good lacing. The amount of aroma is slightly less than expected. Still good though; mostly burnt malt with some chocolate coming through. This beer is a little too watery to be a stout. More like a porter (a thin one at that). The flavor is burnt malt; needs more bitterness AND sweetness. Not a bad beer, it just needs to be more aggressive. decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 14, 2011
Brown/black pour with tan head and lace. Chocolate with a medium coffee aroma. Sour light roasted malt, medium coffee, light chocolate, and just a hinto warmth. A bit thin with medium carbonation. decent beer. TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2011
22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a haze but fluffs up with a stiff pour. Nose is mild cocoa and coffee. Medium body, some chalk, buzzy with a tang. Taste is weak coffee, thin grape juice, oat, lime peel and smoke. drowland (8758) - Georgia, USA - AUG 19, 2011
8/19/11. 22oz bomber. Opaque pitch black pour with a teensy brown head that fades. Plenty of roasty aroma with definite coffee, but a teensy watery. Nice roasty, coffee flavor with milk chocolate and just a touch of tart, but again, it’s a bit watery. Not bad, but could be better.

Pours pitch black with a deep tan head. Smells extremely chocolaty with hints of burnt coffee as it warms. Tastes like bitter cocoa. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, CBBC Not Just Some Oatmeal Stout finishes smooth. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Dark brown color/ lasting brown foam. Dry black malt, toasted dark oat, chicory coffee aromas. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium roasted malt, dark bread, biscuit, light roast chicory coffee flavors--good. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Bottle pours a black brew with a thin tan/brown head. Scent is roasty and coffee. Taste is a quicky fading roasty pop then nothing with a sweet smoked roasted malt finish. Thin Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Bomber. Poured deep brown with a sticky, well-retained dark tan head. The aroma picked up sweet cocoa and vanilla with light-moderate black patent roastage.. sweet and well-presented. The flavor found more dry-roasted chocolates (of the little bit darker variety), with dry cocoa accents around.. black patent carried most of the weight.. tacky and a little sharp on the edges.. overall tasty, but not great. Medium-bodied at most on the palate.. just the slightest bit sour around.. dry, with lots of roast sitting on the finish. This was an average, and certainly drinkable stout.

Bomber pours very dark with thin mocha head. The aroma has dark roasted malts, an ashy note, a mild sense of dark fruity esters, maybe a sort of lactose note and then a short whiff of burnt toffee. The taste starts with dark roasted malts and then rolls into burnt malts, a mild roasted malt astringent tartness and a quick thin pulse of sweet dark fruity esters. Midway and into the finish notes of burnt toffee covered brownie yumminess join in.

Draft @ FBGBF ’010. Pouring up deep darkness with ruby mahogany edges and thin tan head. The modest aroma has a thin layer of pine hops and a sense of malt roastiness to go along with a splash of burnt malts. The taste starts with roasted malts, a touch of pine and then rolls into some burnt malts and a pleasing touch of earthiness.
