SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a dark brown/black with a tan head. Aroma is tart, some dark roast. Flavor is tart, as well as dark roast. Mouthfeel is medium body with high fizzy carbonation. Overall, not bad, just seems a little weird....too much tartness.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Draught sample at the brewpub. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of nuts and chocolatey. Tastes peppery with some roasted malt and sweet caramel on the finish.

egajdzis (6437) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Poured an opaque black color with no head, and no lacing on the glass either. Aroma of caramel malts, roast, chocolate, and toast. Taste of anise, light smoke, roasted malts, caramel, and a bit of chocolate. Not a stellar oatmeal stout.

Growler from the source. Filled my pint glass with this bewitched black/brown (mostly black) potion. The 1/4" head faded pretty quickly into a nice thin ring that leaves some nice lacing along the edges. Coffee, chocolate, licorice and a nice subtle hint of oatmeal in a very mild aroma. Bitter sweet taste. of oatmeal and coffee with the tiniest hint of oatmeal and licorice. A nice after taste that doesn’t last for more than a minute or two. Silky smooth feel with a really nice thickness without being at all overwhelming. This is a mouthful at a time beer. No sipper, no gulper. But you should sit back and enjoy.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 16, 2008
Great aroma of Hershey’s chocolate and coffee beans. The flavor is disappointing, though; thin and bland with a fairly thin palate.

mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 19, 2007
Light brown pour with an average head. Sweet notes in the aroma that are more prevalent than the underlying coffee notes. Strong coffee flavor. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Good beer, not great. As this one warmed, I got some diacetyl in the aroma that grew more pronounced.
