At the risk of sounding like I plagiarized from the brewery’s own description, I must say this classic oatmeal stout is a clean and exceptionally smooth example of the style, featuring a fresh and flavorful roasted malt taste, with roasted hints of coffee and milk chocolate. Pours a pleasant translucent coffee-brown color with a nice creamy and foamy head. Truly a silky smooth mouthfeel with a simple but superior roasted malt flavor profile.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. NHTP pours very dark brown with a smallish off-white head that settles quickly. It has an aroma of burnt popcorn, oak and coffee. The body is a little watery for a stout. The flavor is nice and enjoyable if a bit boring. Charcoal sweetened with chocolate is the predominate taste. The finish lingers with a carbonated hop-filled bitterness. This is an average beer and falls short of my local favorite, Schlafly Oatmeal Stout.

On tap at The Map Room. Nearly opaque with a small head. Roasted malts and coffee with hints of smoked wood. Finishes with a subtle hop kick. A solid stout.

Black pour, mahogany pinstriping when illuminated beneath a short, fading, mostly tight khaki head which creates a solid ring and pair of short peninsulas of lace

Aromas and flavors of coffee infused vanilla, treacle and caramel with biscuit accents on a medium body with a dense character cut with plenty of lively carbonation leading to smoke, damp wood and subtle soy sauce with nuances of slightly wonky umami - flash of creamed corn - chocolate in the finish and residual, ultimately a welcome heavy feel and richness considering the alc %

12 oz bottle code K184 09:43 served at 45º into 14.7 oz Zwiesel Cognac snifter

Dan’s Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #63 of 90. On tap at New Holland in Holland, MI. Pours black/brown with ruby edges. Roasted malts and oatmeal are evident, and it is semi-smooth in taste. One of their better offerings.

Strong oatmeal aroma and amber black pour leads to a strong coffee chocolate taste and pleasant mouthfeel. An easy drinking stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Chocolate and oat flavors and aromas, blended with hints of coffee, caramel and an aftertaste of cookies. An easy to drink stout, though a bit too light bodied.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - MAR 23, 2008
12oz. bottle served in a shaker pint. Poured a deep brown with a slight tan head. Molasses/burnt sugar in the aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Lots of chocolate malt. Really long dry coffee finish. Maybe a little thin. Pretty easy drinking. Just enough hops to balance malt. Decent brew.

mcjay (463) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Pours dark with a brownish hue and a medium brown head. Has a nice roasted malt aroma with a rich and silky chocolate taste. Kind of mild for an oatmeal stout but sometimes that’s a good thing.
