On tap at Pacific Standard. Really nice, good just use some slight tweaks to be excellent. Lots of rb. Lovely grainy coffee. Very slight melony fruitiness plus the flavors could be melded better aka give it 2 months. Overcarbonation makes it a bit harsh. Fix that and it would be world class, as is, very good.

Beautiful dark brow/blackish pour with a huge dark beige head. Aroma is light chocolate, some coffee roast, cream. Mouthfeel is slippery but a bit light. Flavor is somewhat light, mild coffee and bitter chocolate, some oat. Overall a bit underwhelming, thin for an oatmeal stout. oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Black pour with a tight cappuccino like tan froth. The aroma is quite lactic- creamy sugars intermingle with roasted barley and some oatmeal chocolate notes. The flavor is roasted barley, chocolate, and slightly sour lactic sugar. A slight hop character comes though in the form of grass and floral notes. The palate is very thin for the style- creamy but lacking in body. The finish is roasty and slightly chalky. Not overly impressed for the style.

Bomber. Pours a bruin body with a tan coffee like head with good retention. Malty body with some light oat character, rich chocolate malts, fudge, and molasses. Oatmeal lends a leather and velvet like texture, pretty well attneuated with a short lived sweetness that quickly dries the palate. Finish continues with a smooth and dry finish with a slight chocolate malt and oatmeal lingering. A nice stout. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 13, 2010
On tap at McNeills. Nice black-bodied beer with tan head. Nose of chocolate, coffee and espresso. Delightful. Taste also of coffee and malts. Quite sweet with slight tartness. Was quite impressed vs their other beers I’ve had.

22 oz. bottle via trade on Beer Advocate. Pours a very dark, opaque brown that looks like motor oil out of the bottle. A dark tan head leaves some nice lacing in the glass. Aroma of chocolate and lots of it, along with fresh coffee beans, roasted malts, dark fruits, molasses, and licorice. Flavor of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruits, molasses, rainwater, and the oats show up in the flavor. Full-bodied, with an oily mouthfeel and low carbonation. Lingering roast coffee aftertaste. A little fuller and richer and this is pretty close to an imperial stout. Nice brew. tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2010
22 oz. bomber. Pours an opaque black with beautiful milk orange brown head. Aroma of oats and barley, hay, milk, chocolate malts, roasted nut. Taste is chocolate to a milky oat grits like component, then to spices and sediment on the finish. There are some fairly earthy flavors here - some may not like this but for those who do it’s a nice beer. I was nicely surprised with this one. thornecb (6020) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 20, 2010
Pours black into an English pint. Mocha head with excellent retention recedes leaving spot lacing to skim surface. Espresso and chocolate syrup aromas. Thin with upfront roasted coffee turning to a lasting dark chocolate finish. SanfordBrewer (1608) - Sanford, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2009
