hotstuff (5139) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2006
Bottle and bottled on June 20, 2006. Tan small head that mostly diminished, poor lacing, semi-opaque, very little carbonation, and a dark brown hue. Nose was roasty, malty, caramel, and somewhat sweet. Flavor was sweet, thin and watery tasting, roasty, malt, caramel, and a tad bitter at the end. Smooth, thin mouthfeel. Light body. Decent, but a bit too thin. Better ones out there of this style. jimhilt (2609) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 5, 2006
Pours a five finger head that fades slowly to thin layer leaving some lace. Deep mahogany color. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Roasted coffee nose. Starts sweet roasted coffee/chocolate flavor some bitterness at finish. Little thin for a oatmeal stout. 12 oz bottle part of mixed 6-pak for $7.99 from Friar Tuckís Peoria, Il.

Bottle. Poured dark brown with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate roasted caramel malt aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy texture. Medium roasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expextations where met. vyvvy (6387) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 8, 2006
Pours dark brown with a decent sized brown head. The aroma has some roasted malt, light chocolate, but something about it reminds me of a lighter beer aroma. Medium body with some sharp carbonation. Taste has roasted malt with light char. The finish is more crisp than expected for an oatmeal stout. Okay stout. Rictus (126) - Dothan, Alabama, USA - OCT 29, 2006
It has a nice woody smell. Not much else to detect though. Black color and no head. Very intimidating. It tastes kinda bitter and very manly. Definately a stout but I dont see how itís "sweet" (itís got a hint of sweetness thatís barely noticeable). Regardless, I do like it alot. Itís alittle thicker than water and doesnt have alot of carbonation (nothing special). Overall, I really like this. Wouldnt mind designating this as a "go-to" beer.

Pours black with a good head. The aroma is all roasted grain. Has an initial taste of raisin that develops into a coffee and chocolate bitterness. Not much of an oatmeal presence. A decent beer. holdenn (2116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2006
12oz bottle pours black with a fizzy tan head. The aroma is mostly roasted barley with a little bit of chocolate. Thin bodied but still rather creamy palate from the oats. Sweet taste of oatmeal, barley, and bitter chocolate. Finishes lightly bitter, an enjoyable brew. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2006
This pours an opaque, very dark brown with ruby highlights and a small light brown head. The aroma is roasted barley with coffee and a hint of bittersweet chocolate. The latter become more prominent in the flavor as does a nutty bitterness that last long into the finish. Not bad, but I was surprised at the lack of an oatmeal presence in mouthfeel or flavor.LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2006

Bottle from TannerTavernboys. Black in color with a slight brownish tinge along the edge when backlit. Decent light beige head, good lacing. Aroma is deep roasted coffee, a touch of smoke. Medium bodied. Creaminess from the oats is nice on the palate/tongue. Decently done.
