blatantdream (78) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2005
On tap at the Union Square location. Pretty decent stout but what makes this an "oatmeal" stout not just a stout? I dont taste much of a unique oat taste. Chocolaty, dry and malty toasted flavors. Full bodied.

Part of a seasonal voyage platter at the Heartland Brewery and Chophouse, 43rd St, NYC. Pours almost black with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is syrupy, chocolate, toffee and molasses. Moderate sweetness, quite heavy bitterness. Full bodied, slick texture, soft carbonation. Syrupy finish.

On tap at the brewpub. It poured an almost black color with a tan head. The aroma was of coffee and chocolate. The taste was similar to the aroma with more coffee, chocolate and some malts. Not bad.

tombyars (1666) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 9, 2015
Tasted this at the Heartland Brewery, 8th Street New York on the 20th September 2015. Keg, nitro dispense in a pint glass. Dull black in colour with a pale creamy buff head. Roast coffee notes present in the malty aroma, intensifies as it warms up. Creamy smooth mouthfeel and excellent lacing. Dark malts give a moist maltloaf base with distinct notes of black coffee, liquorice and plain chocolate. Slight dusty hop prickle noted in the brief aftertaste. Finish is malty with dark chocolate, black coffee, ash and burnt toast full in the mouth. Very easy to drink despite the 6% ABV.

yngwie (16879) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2015
On tap at Heartland, Empire State, NYC. A dark one, almost black, with a creamy, light tan head on top. The aroma is roasted and coffee-ish, with some licorice. Rather boring and uninteresting, but not foul. Theres some sourish notes in the flavor, some berries too, but its mostly roasted malts. Full to medium body, smooth and with some acidity. Not much of the sweetness promised. Overall, a decent beer, but too acidic for me. 150624

StueyD (1579) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2015
A pitch black coloured beer with a thick tan coloured head. A strong aroma of roasted malt, loads of coffee and dark chocolate. Medium mouthfeel. The taste is a smooth and bittersweet, dry roasted coffee, nutty, then a smooth creamy chocolatey flavour in the end. The finish starts off dry and nutty then the sweet chocolate flavour comes through. Draught @ Heartland Brewery, 8th St. New York.
