Works for me. Produces a sensible, diminuitive head; dark brown body with obvious carbonation. The carbonation is quite noticeable in the tasting, too, though it is soft enough to be overlooked until it burns off a bit more. Good chocolate flavors, relatively controlled sweetness, though I didn’t mind that at all (sometimes finding oatmeal stouts a bit off kilter for my tastes). Poured some onto a chocolate brownie and it totally worked for me! Bottle. Drank on St. Valentine’s Day. burg326 (5482) - Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2012
12 ounce bottle pours a dark brown color with aromas of roasted malt, oats, cocoa, vanilla, and a hint of coffee. Flavors are much the same with a slightly boozy aftertaste, nice beer overall. DalzAle (2037) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle. Dark black pour, a little lasting gray head and an aroma of milk sugar and a little chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, some sweet sugar and chocolate with a very thin body. Decent beer, wished it was a little more hearty. commonshawn (1259) - Minnesota, USA - APR 29, 2016

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2011 On tap at the GTMW 2011. Dark brown with ruby lowlights and a creamy tan topper. Aroma of dark roasted malts, chocolate, grains and mild vanilla. Taste of chocolate, oatmeal, yeast, light sugar, white chocolate, cocoa and roasted malt. Dry finish that’s a touch artificial.

08-16-09. 6-3-6-2-13. On tap at the GTMW. Copper with a thin tan head, doesn’t look much like a stout. Aroma of roasted malt, mild caramel and light sweet malt. Taste of mild chocolate, milk sugar, roasted dark malt and perhaps a hint of coffee. Seemed very thin and had a mild chalky finish.
On tap at Ed’s Bar in Winona, MN. Pour was dark with a creamy light tan head. Aroma was of light chocolate, light roast, caramel, and oats. Flavor was well blended with chocolate, roast, and a creamy mouth feel. This was a real nice oatmeal stout. I was impressed. AirForceHops (7243) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 19, 2012
12 oz. bottle courtesy of Tripplebrew. Served cellar temperature in an English pint. Black as a raven in color with fast diminishing, tan head. Mild lace. Nicely intense roasted malt and chocolate aroma’s. Nice flavors of Milk chocolate, vanilla and a light hop to balance the sweetness. Some lactose sugar. Mouthfeel is creamy. Body is a tad lacking, ABV is only lightly noticeable. Overall a well-executed sweet stout. Not overly sweet. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 26, 2012
