This buzzes with cascades of hearty, deep chocolate and earthy wheat undertones. It’s like pureed devil’s food cake pumped with hops. This oatmeal stout has a sinister licorice nose and bleeds a hazy brown. One of the best Pyramid brews, no doubt. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2010

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a deep brown, nearly black color with a one finger of a cream colored head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a great level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is a nice blend of roasted malt, oatmeal, and some sweeter smells of sweet chocolate a bit of caramel. Along with these are some hints of vanilla and a bit of a bready smell, overall giving a nice roasty and sweet stout smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweet chocolate and oat taste with lots of vanilla sweetness. A moderate amount of roastiness is present right from the start which fades a bit as the taste advances. A bit of a coffee flavor comes to the tongue more toward the middle with a little bit of a molasses and light earthy hop flavor comes to the tongue. In the end a nice roasted, and sweet oatmeal stout flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly lower side. Both are rather nice for the roasted and sweet flavors of the beer and make for a very easy drinking but soothing feel.
Overall – A rather enjoyable brew overall. Nice, sweet, raoasty, oats, and smooth flavors with a very easy drinking feel. foyle (425) - Wyoming, USA - APR 5, 2014

dark brown/black pour with brownish head - slight coffee/’chocalate aromas - taste of chocolate and coffee - lingering brown sugar and chocolate poisoneddwarf (2624) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JAN 11, 2013
12 oz bottle from the winter variety pack bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours dark dark brown to black with red highlights; has a medium collapsing beige head. Aroma consists of dough, bread, caramel, clove, licorice, coffee. Taste is a little sweet, but it’s more sour (I doubt this is intentional); finishes dry and bitter. There’s a little chocolate flavor in here. Oveall, it’s not too bad, but it’s pretty strange. The off-flavors aren’t off-putting, they’re just a little distracting. bytemesis (9015) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Ok, lets just stop shitting on the likes of pyramid just because we are supposed to. I mean, shit, i agree that the typical pyramid brew is not something to write home about, but they can still occasionally do something right. This is a pretty good oatmeal stout. If you can’t see that, ask yourself how it would fare in a blind rating. I won’t waste my time with my typical rating, cause no one gives a damn anyway. Just know that this beer ain’t bad. So there. haddon90 (1634) - Newport Beach, California, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep black color with a thin, white head. Light aroma of roasted malt and a hint of oatmeal. Decent flavor. Smoked oatmeal with some malt as well. A little milky sense as well. Not bad but could have a lot more in this brew. Zymurgeist2 (2349) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 13, 2013
From bottle to wine glass. Chocolate and roast aroma. Black with a taupe head that lingers. Taste is mostly roast with slight chocolate background. Slight silkiness from the oats. Not bad.
