Roasted coffee notes impart a slight bitterness and a dry finish. Medium sweetness. Very nice sipping stout. It does have a smooth palate with a lively carbonation at the finish.

Bebum (895) - 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Bottle; pours nearly black with a thin brown head; aroma of chocolate; roast malt, and a hint of coffee; taste is sweet with chocolate, malt, and coffee; dry finish with just a hint of bitterness; simple, yet good

6oz sample at Liquor Barn. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Taste is a nice balance of sweet with some bitterness.

smroush (256) - 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.

migwell (348) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 7, 2017
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 Ill stick with Samuel Smith and others for this style.

Dal9000 (588) - Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2017
At Whole Foods. Pours dark dark brown with no head. Aroma of toasted grain. Initial taste of caramelized toasted mild cocoa. Very smooth and mild and creamy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Tranquillity (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2017
Draft. Black body with a small brown head. The aroma is slightly alcoholic with some smoked whisky notes. The taste is vanilla and toasted malts. Nice kick at the end.

At the risk of sounding like I plagiarized from the brewerys 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.
