Calling it Lux noctus now. Basic oatmeal stout. +++ Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy beige head that left good lacing. The aroma was toasty malts, vanilla and a bit of coffee. The flavor was toasty malts, a bit of wood and faint coffee. Turns dry and bitter on the long finish. Medium body. Meh.

This one poured a dark brown color with a beige head. Aroma was light chocolate, some grainy notes and roasted malt. Flavor was light roastyness, a bit sweet but not too sweet, and also caramel notes. Way too thin for a stout. DocLock (11103) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Draft at King of Prussia. Ebony pour...very little light transmittance, with a creamy, khaki head and great lacing. The aroma was rich chocolate malt, some dark chocolate, and mild coffee hints. The palate was medium in heft, extremely smooth, with flavor notes of chocolate malt, mild molasses, some hops, and dark chocolate, with a somewhat dry finish. Very nice style. donovan1983 (76) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2007
On tap at 16th Street Mall location in Denver. Nearly black body with a light brown head. Had a roasted malt aroma with chocolate and coffee notes. Taste was of dark chocolate and roasted malt, on the sweet side, with some coffee flavour and some bitterness in there. The use of nitrogen instead of CO2 made for a very smooth mouthfeel, and the body was nice and full and almost had a slightly gritty feel, which I rather liked. Overall very smooth and enjoyable. I could have easily had a few of these and am eager to have another the next time they have this on tap and I get over to that location. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2007

On tap, King of Prussia. Pours an opaque black body under a creamy espresso brown nitrogenated head. The nose is dry roasted and burnt malt with a little coffee. Flavor is pretty thin and watery up front, then fades to a lightly roasty dry finish. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with the usual nitrogenated minimal carbonation. A little weak and boring. I think the nitro has takes away some from this beer. I guess you can’t expect too much from the beer that fills the space on their little sampler mat they have on the table that reads "rotating dark beer".

Cask @ the KOP Rock Bottom. Pours a deep brown with a large creamy tan head that sustained and laced. Aroma of milk chocolate, light coffee, lactose, oatmeal, malty sweetness and hints of roast. Flavor was rich, roasty, chocolate, malty, coffee with lots of cream, very light bitterness. obxdude10 (2378) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2007
Draft at the Rock Bottom in King of Prussia, black in color with a big tan head, thick lacing left around the glass, I probably could have gone in there with a spoon & scooped that stuff off the sides of the glass, medium in body, very creamy & smooth, flavors of chocolate & light coffee, could have sat there all afternoon & drank this stout, they also had it on the handpump, but unfortanutely for me I didn’t have enough time to try that as well, I’m sure it would have been even better, smooth finish & more notes of chocolate & biscuit, very good stout zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2006
(draft @ Rock Bottom Pittsburgh - Homestead, PA) Dark black pour with a creamy tan head and red highlights. Aroma is chock full of roasted caramel and chocolate malts. Flavor is very smooth and creamy with a good roasted malt flavor backed by a nice amount of oatmeal to give it that sweet creaminess. Very chewy and good. spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2004
I had the Oatmeal Stout in Denver brewery but its not on here so I figured I’d rate this because I’m sure its similar. Very nice dark, black appearance with medium tan head. Chocolate and caramel aroma. Great oatmeal flavor, very strong. Good stout.
