Good stuff, but Oatmeal Stouts usually are. Not as smooth as others, but that might be in the bottle. I have had smoother and creamier, but still very good.
Aroma of coffee. Dark Black Color. Starts off a touch sweet, with coffee, and chocolate. Has a bitter finish, but a but bit too bitter. The mouthful is watery. Its an OK sweet stout but not great. jrodooo5 (1638) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 22, 2017
Aromatic, pretty, & tasty this is an excellent stout! Pours black w/ a tan head & solid lacing. The aroma has some nice chocolate notes as well as a hint of roasted malt. The flavor is quite similar. It has a lovely soft mouthfeel as advertised. The chocolate carries throughout. Just a very good example of the style overall! svandyke (231) - USA - JUN 21, 2017
12oz (Educators on Tap)- Nice white head with some lacing. Good dark color but can still see through it. Great vanilla and nutty notes and then roasty malt flavor. A bit cloying tasting. Bebum (964) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 9, 2017
Darkbrown, tall, short-lived head.
Full body, flavorful, smooth, not silky, highly carbonated, lively mouthfeel despite low ABV, average length.
Moderately bittersweet, just right acidity, predominantly bitter finish.
Strong flavor of un-malted roasted grains, dark roast coffee.
Enjoyable but not high on my list.

Nice drinkable beer. Not overwhelming in any way. Some roast flavor with a little chocolate at the end. Epic it is not.

Bottle from Colonial Spirits.
Pours a solid dark brown with faint garnet at the edges and a frothy creamy tan head that persists. Roasted coffee milk on the nose with faint chocolate dark fruit and earth. Creamed coffee and light dried fruit wrapped in a creamy bubbly mouthfeel. Pretty damn tasty.

6oz sample at Liquor Barn. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Taste is a nice balance of sweet with some bitterness. smroush (277) - Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2017
Aromas of roasted coffee with a touch of chocolate. Just a slight touch of spice - cinnamon or nutmeg.
Color is dark brown, almost black. Sparse tan head.
Taste is slightly sweet, moderately bitter.
Body is a little things for a stout; carbonation average; average length finish.
Overall a reasonably good beer, though just a bit thin and simple.

This is a fairly ordinary oatmeal stout, lacking in complexity, thin bodied, weak and the black malt ashiness is overdone. Great label design attracted me to this one, and I will say, for a sweet stout it is by no means cloyingly sweet. Roasty, burnt toasty, somewhat smooth and pretty easy drinking... but I think I’ll stick with Samuel Smith and others for this style.
