Squat bottle from Blue Dog. Pours dark brown with 1-finger clingy tan head. Nose is roasty dark malt, cacao, mild coffee and oak. Tastes dry, with flavors of black patent malts, cacao, some hops, coffee, and a bit of earthy oak. Beaver (1807) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a big creamy light tan head that retains well and laces the glass a little.LilBeerDoctor (3997) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2012
The aroma is roasted malt, oatmeal and some coffee.
The flavor is a little on the mild side - some sweet chocolate and caramel malts with some earthy coffee notes. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and fairly watery.
Overall, a decent oatmeal stout, but a little on the mild and sweet side. I slightly preferred the Slow Elk by Big Sky which is very similar.
On tap. Pours black with a thin light head. Aroma of roasted malt and light roasted coffee. Flavor is mostly roasted malt, less coffee and barrel notes. Bitter finish. Decent stout but lesser quality than I was expecting from this brewery. Overall it is actually pretty bland.

Black pour brown hue thin bubbly creamy head light lacing ... aroma of coca and roasted coffee ..... taste is of roasted coffee, coco, light lactose and caramel malts ... mouthfeel is slick and oily .... dry and bitter hop in the finish roasted notes linger for a little ..... a decent oatmeal stout bourbon barrel wasn’t evident beergodd1 (400) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Pours a deep, brown out of the bottle, sitting almost black in the glass. The head is small and tan, leaving streaks of lacing. Aroma is mainly toasted chocolate malt and oatmeal. There are hints of coffee and cocoa powder as well. Taste is more of the same and predominantly chocolate with bitter espresso, with a healthy dose of oatmeal in finish to make it very creamy. The mouth feel is light to medium bodied and feels a tad thin, though it is a low ABV stout. This is a very drinkable. I wish I wouldn’t have threw in my other one as an extra in a trade.
Tybalt (212) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Pours dark - very small tan head. Smells carmely/sugary. Almost a bit watery up front - slowly draws out a nice roasted coffee aftertaste. mtjoseph (244) - Murderapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a light bodied dark brown with not much of a head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and some roasted malt. Maybe a hair of tinny metallic notes too. Light bodied and kinda dry for a stout, flavors heavier on the bittersweet chocolate side with some coffee. Slightly roasty and dry with some bitter hops in the finish. For an oatmeal stout, it seems like there should be a little bigger body. mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Bottle shared by mtjoseph. Deep, dark brown color with a small off white head. Very nice looking for a regular porter. Big roasted malt aroma, with plenty of chocolate present, and some sugary creaminess present as well. Taste has chocolate and a good amount of roasted malt present. Creamy mouthfeel. Just a really nice stout that I could drink a bunch of in the winter. Reid (2558) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2012

Taste is mainnly roasted oats,dark chocolate and esspresso coffee..the bitter ness lingers.
Great mouthfeel and even better aftertaste that goes on for some time after the beer is done.
Great beer at a great [price Leafs93 (2305) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Pours black with a creamy beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate, roasty, toffee and traces of oatmeal. Expected rhe oatmeal to be more predominate then it was. Taste was sweet with some bitters. Light mouthfeel and not as creamy as the head made it appear.
