Chris brought this one too me from a trip to Utah. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large foamy brown head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was dry, roasty, woody and had notes of vanilla and floral hops. The flavor was bitter, dryish and toasty with cocoa, coffee, vanilla, wood and a hint t of red meat. Long finish. Moderately full bodied and smooth. Nice. olio (10681) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2016

A decadent oatmeal stout that pairs really well with cheesecake. Oatis pour a rich mahogany and settles out to be midnight black in the glass with dark brownish ruby at the edges. The head is short-lived creamy light brown. Vanilla and caramel permeate invitingly from the glass. Vanilla, caramel, subtle roast, cocoa and plum dance on the pallette.

Bottle. This is a nice thick and roasty sweet stout with lots of body. I like it a bit better on the colder side to cut down on the cloying tendency of the style.

On tap at St. Augistine’s. Pours a very dark brown with a brown head. Aroma brings out chocolate cake note with vanilla notes. Same character taste and aftertaste with hoppy and burnt malt bitterness. Excellent! Darwenus (1163) - Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Decent, if maybe a little underwhelming. Pours very dark brown, no real head. The aroma is bitter baker’s chocolate, but it’s very restrained. The flavor is restrained, too. I don’t pick up on the usual rich, cereal malt thing that I enjoy about oatmeal stouts. The front of the tongue is watery, but the finish is a little better. A little bitter, roasted malt, and just the slightest hint of vanilla show up on the back end. BVery (11458) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Bomber. Dark oily pour with a tan head. Roasty, vanilla, some cocoa. A bit dry. Quite good. sulawang (1208) - - JUL 10, 2016
Visual: Part of a 4-pack, mixed bombers. Pours jet black with a quickly dissipating small head, a thin layer of retention, a few bubbles here and there.
Nose: sweet medium roasted caramel barley malt, prominent vanilla (lvl-8)-pungency
Attack: slick-oily-thick, crisp bite
Mid-palate: thick liquid deep roast barley malt, (lvl-6-sweetness), background dissipating tangy sour, milk sugars
Finish: chocolate, vanilla, lingering roasted bitter intermixed with bitter hops
Summary: A deliciously decadent mix of dark roasty chocolate vanilla - great balance, drinkability, and complexity. Lots of flavours you can focus individually on. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUL 2, 2016
