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. deaconmike (470) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - SEP 20, 2013
On tap. Deep walnut with thin tan cap. Aroma is roast, coffee and chocolate. Moderate to heavy sweetness with slightly bitter finish. Body is a little thin, but creamy. Carbo is soft. Enjoyed this stout. M82 (469) - Kansas, USA - APR 11, 2015
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 %

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. mwbrady12 (469) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Strong oatmeal aroma and amber black pour leads to a strong coffee chocolate taste and pleasant mouthfeel. An easy drinking stout.

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.
