Pardon the cliché! But.... OMG! This beer is amasing. I was enjoying the place and the beer sampler i ordered. After this I ordered another one... Nough said! HighlanderOne (1373) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - MAY 22, 2001
Ahh, what a beer. I'm a real sucker for oatmeal stouts, and this one's a classic.
It has a smooth, creamy head that persists right to the end of the pint.
There is a faint aroma of oats and coffee as you take your first sip.
The flavor is full and well balanced. To me, it was similar to Guinness Draught.
Definitely one of my favorite beers of all time. Fienddom (1) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2001 does not count
Probably my favorite beer ever. A must have for stout fans................. freekyp (2408) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2011
pours a deep dark chestnut color. Toffee, chocolate, candy flavor with a light sassafras component. Aroma is roasted coffee and root beer. Very balanced with a super creamy and light mouthfeel. Finishes sweet and tart along with a strong roasted nutty flavor.

Woo. Just woo. Woooooooo. Beautiful dark with a slightly reddish tint. Big mocha-colored head, barkeep had to let it settle several times to top off. Nose has nice roasts with a bit of smokiness and some chocolate. Initial flavor is very subtle roasts. At the swallow, becomes very milky with more chocolate at the end. Very dry and smoky, hints of tobacco. As it warms, becomes hoppier and drier, a nice bitterness. Lovely texture, certainly not incredibly thick, but I tend to expect lighter textures from oatmeal stouts, so it hit me perfectly. Simply amazingly quaffable, full and rich yet very drinkable. Great, great stuff.
