Pours a solid black with just the faintest of brown highlights on the edges. A vigorous pour produced a minimal khaki head that dissipated quickly. Smells of toasted malts, roasted coffee, hints of milk chocolate and steeping grains as well. Tastes of creamy chocolate up front, roasted coffee and toasted malts mid way through with a long lingering roasted bitterness in a fairly dry finish. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, light carbonation and a slightly thin body. Very tasty brew. I could certainly see myself throwing a few of these back. That said I could have used a touch more body and maybe a hair more carbonation but I didn’t take much off for that because it tasted so damn good.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and lactose. Flavor of sweet roasted malt, chocolate malt. Pretty good oatmeal stout, easy drinking (although not very complex). I also got to try this dry hopped with Warrior hops on cask , which was also good obviously more hoppy (although I didn’t love the cask effect on it - would’ve loved to try a tap version). This one is probably a little overhyped, but it’s a pretty good oatmeal stout.

On tap at Portsmouth brewpub. Pours out a dark brown topped with a nice brown head. Aroma was nice with lots of sweet roast malts, chocolate, and a little smoke. Taste was more of the rich roast, coffee, pit fruit, and a little bitterness on the end.

Bottle from Goodgrief. Pour was typical for an oaty stout, perhaps a bit short on the head but good nonetheless. The aroma was chocolate syrupy, grains, and a touch of smoke. Flavor followed, the oats breaking up the sweet chocolate syrup, smoke firming it up, caramel, and molasses too. Not a bad brew, hard to get good oat stouts in bottles, so cheers, cheers! Thanks, Tom! AirForceHops (7318) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 25, 2010
On tap @ the pub.Pours dark brown to black with a brown head. The aroma is strong coffee with some cream in there as well. The flavor is more of the same with coffee, cream and chocolate as well as roasted malts. You also get the oatmeal taste. The mouthfeel is very creamy. dogfish120love (1333) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Pours a moderate to dark brown. The aroma consists of Oatmeal, Coffee, and Chocolate. The alcohol shines through slightly. The flavor is nice and smokey, while also being rather sweet Goodgrief (2039) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 20, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2010 Dark, nice head, some lacing. Strong roasted aroma...smells like breakfast. Lots of roast, bitter, but pleasant. Lots of chewy oatmeal flavor. Amazingly smooth in the mouth. Really odd to have a beer so smooth, yet so bitter. Pretty good. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2010
