Into a pint glass.
She pours jet black and leaves the same colored body with a one finger foamy off white head that leaves some nice foamy lacing in rings.
The smell is roasty, nutty, and has some strong coffee beans.
The taste has bitter coffee yet also slightly roasty and nutty, bitter coffee aftertaste, super dry finish.
On the palate, its about a medium of sorts and comes across somewhat sessionable, carbonation feels right for the style and for me, decent harshness invading the mouth and tongue, but honestly I say it cuts just right.
Overall, this is a good oatmeal stout that I would have again, especially for the fact that it held up this long, which means I definitely would try again fresher, quite possibly the best one by Kassik’s (I knew there was a reason why I kept trying their stuff). robforbes (2243) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2013
pours a like black crude oil with a large tan head, and good lacing.

taste is slightly creamy, sour malt, oatmeal, a roatiness, and cocoa, ends dry. kathouse (1893) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Black with a thin tan head. White chocolate aroma. Sweet at first and slightly bitter in the finish. Roasted malt adds some complexity. Better as it warms. bleeng (1682) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bomber. Pours black and a light head. Not much nose. Nice mellow taste with some sweetness. Lighter body. Decent. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Black, large foamy light beige head, nice lacing.   Powdery nose of bakers chocolate and burnt malts.   Similar tongue, a bit more sweet than the nose suggested, roasty, dark chocolate.   Seems more dry
and somewhat more burnt or at least has a charred aspect that most Sweet Stouts don’t have.   Not as "sweet" as other Sweet Stouts.   Instead, its a bit drier, roastier, with a more of a charred wood/campfire aspect.   Body
and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean finish, soft roasted malts and dark chocolate linger.   The charred wood/campfir were only fleeting.   Not quite what I think of when I drink a Sweet Stout, as it has no lactose like
sweetness.   As a Stout, its somewhat decent, and perhaps a bit bigger than your average stout.   Different, but enjoyable.   Big hint, don’t think of this as a Sweet Stout when drinking this one.

22. Pours black with a big billowy tan head and plenty of lace. Mild sweet chocolatey nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Great anise and chocolate combination on the mid palate. Long rich roasty sweet anise finish. Very enjoyable. SHIG (4962) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle: Poured a dark black brown with a thick creamy light brown head. Aroma is full on sweet chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is sweet dark chocolate, roasted malts, light hops that work well to balance the sweetness. Very nice to enjoy on International Stout Day 2012.

Dark brown with a tan head. Rich chocolate aroma with tart oatmeal and deep roasted malts. Rich dark chocolate flavor with bitter blackened malts to balance. Nice stout. Draft@ Humpys. savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 25, 2009
On tap. Dark brown almost black with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and a light smokiness. Sweet flavor that has a light bitterness from the roasted grain and a very light hop bitterness. Creamy mouth feel, full body and an average carbonation that helps lighten the body a bit. This is a solid Stout that goes down smooth and is very drinkable.
