Medium brown, thick head. Not much nose but a rich, nourishing malty stout with mellow hop bitterness and balanced roast/chocolate taste. Ratman197 (14686) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Bomber poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of cocoa, roastiness and light cola. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roastiness and cocoa with a smooth lingering cocoa finish. djd07 (14366) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with medium beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is dark chocolate and roast. Medium mouth, very sweet, chocolate malt, roast, lingering dry finish, good. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAR 28, 2013
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. Ernest (7662) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 14, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2015 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, unsweetened chocolate, husks), with a hint of vanilla. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Simple with kinda rough malt, and a bit too tart for my tastes too. Ok but fairly clunky.

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. 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. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JAN 18, 2014

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).

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. rondphoto (4383) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Thanks, Terry Stovall, for bringing this from Anchorage, AK --- Opaque Black color, big 2" tan head that lasts and lasts, bands and swirls of lace. Taste is clean roasted malt that grows earthy and adds some dark chocolate in the palate before allowing a bit of hops to enter late in the finish. A spectacular stout, not overly sweet, no oily residue, satisfying to drink. High recommendations.
