I know this is supposed to be an oatmeal stout, but it reminds me more of the porters that Ive become fond of. Great malty aroma, beautiful dark pour, and just a wonderful flavor and taste profile. Ive only had 2 of these, but Im going to need to drink it side by side with my current favorites and re-rate them against each other, because this one could tie or better some of them.

The only thing missing from this Sweet Stout is head! I poured three from a bottle and not a single one had head. There was nice lacing though. Aroma is great -- malt and cocoa; flavor matches and has a little coffee too. If there were a light brown or tan head this might be my top-rated stout.

Bottled. Pours dark black with a medium tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, toast and coffee. Smells better than it tastes. Chocolate and roasted malt. I was expecting more sweetness with an oatmeal stout. Finishes with a burnt toastiness. decent

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Bottle. Pitch black coloring. 1/2" head. Lacy. Cereal, malty, bready. Milk smooth entry with powerful and pleasing oatmeal nostril exhale. Body is thin - bordering on a little too watery, but flavor is rich and bountiful. A truly quality stout and a new favorite. Especially happy to find this in South Carolina in the land of ABV restrictions.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - APR 1, 2008
Pours a dark black with brown highlights and a thin tan head that quickly dissipates. Nose is musty, earthy, with strong coffee notes and a wooden smokiness, like the smell of a campfire on a cold night. Not too heavy on the palate but smooth, with added body from oats along with a correlative cereal taste, a mild vanilla sweetness and again a dominant oaken smoke character. Finishes very faintly medicinal, with a lingering but gentle herbal bitterness. A pretty decent sweet stout.

TerryR (391) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Murky brown with a tan head that quickly fades away. Roasted malt, coffee and chocolate aroma. Roasted malt dominates the taste with notes of coffee followed by a lonf dry chocolate finish. Chewy body.
