Bottle. Metallic lactic aroma. Black brown with a minimal beige head. Astringent slightly sour malt, earthy oat flavor. Light body, soft carbonation. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Bottle. Deep black, thick, tan head. Rich chocolate with some coffee- not sweet. A little strong carbonation is the only downside. baraciisch (3165) - California, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Deep black with tannish head... Sweet roasted malt aroma... Flavor is rich, roasted malts with more of typical stout roasted mouthfeel than a smooth creamy one of a typical oatmeal stout... Decent

Brown black with an inch of velvety caramel colored head. Aroma is light chocolate and mole-asses. Taste is the same with very prominent mole-asses notes like a holiday cookie, right down to the burnt notes in the finish. $2/12oz Holdwine (1227) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Good amount of coffee and dark chocolate on the nose and tongue. Pours nicely. The 6% seems a bit low, or maybe it is not well hidden. Nice mellowness from the oats. Good effort.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a moderate off-white head. Nose is somewhat malty with a little bit of smoke, actually. Taste is much the same. Not the greatest... hopdog (12341) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2013
12oz bottle. Black pour with an off white head. Roasty, chocolate, bread, oats, and some earth. highibus (821) - Vail, Arizona, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Nice deep black with pillowy carmel head. Nice toasty aroma with a hint of coffee and cocoa. Flavor usability but full. Roasted grain, nicely estringent and a long finish. I really like this. Bricks (1119) - Delaware, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Deep black pour with a minimal light brown bubbly head. I smell roasted coffee and maybe some molasses, but it is simple and a tad thin. Tastes exactly the same as it smell, but it definitely is thin. Palate is more carbonated than I like, but has a nice slightly chewy feel...somewhat bitter. It’s decent, nothing more. Way too fizzy. blipp (9168) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle. Big roasted malts, toasted oats, dark chocolate, lighter nutty notes, and light coffee. Beautifully rich and flavorful.
