My Bottom Line : DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Roasted malts turn to dark chocolate in this lean, quaffable Stout.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the brown-hued blackness.
-The carbonation is a tad too much for my tastes in the style.
-The chocolate-y finish is long and highly pleasant.
-Leafy hops tag along and eventually create balance.
12oz bottle. Almost total black color, nice brown head fading to minimal, some lace. Carbonation is a little pronounced, but crisp enough. Great roasty coffee aftertaste. Great oaty aroma, nice hearty big body. Good sweet taste. A satisfying, easy to drink, oatmeal stout. arminjewell (9661) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Pours nice black with tan head, aroma has notes of chocolate, roast, oats, and a touch of coffee. Taste is oat, roast, and a touch of chocolate/coffee mix, finishing slightly bitter. A bit one-dimensional, but a quality, solid beer. 3fourths (9345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2004
From bottle and tap. Bottle smelled like butt... musty and thick chocolate. Tap didn't have much flavor to offer at all. Watery but gritty. Just a little roasted malts. solidfunk (8953) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Nice oatmeal stout. Smells like coffee with oats. Tastes like roasted cereal. Finishes bitter. Average carbonation. Elements come together very well here. Pours black with good head and lacing.

Bottle to taster. Looks good; a semi-opaque dark cola with light beige lacing. Smells solid; dark malt and chocolate. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. A decent example of the style. drowland (8676) - Georgia, USA - AUG 19, 2009
I’ve had this from the bottle once and on tap a bunch of times. Not a bad beer. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Courtesy of CigarCityBrew. Pours deep garnet with mocha head. The aroma is roasty to dark roasted malts leaning toward burnt malts and some biscuit. The taste is roasty moving more in the direction of mild malt astringency. Then there’s also notes of caramel and chocolate blending into sweet malts and dark roastiness. The roasted malts grow in strength as it is warmed and more of it is consumed. I didn’t really notice the signature creaminess the oatmeal tends to bring along.

Becky, I think I speak for all of us when I say, "When’s the ice cream going to get here?" jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Keg @ Beer Run. Deep brown with a tight creamy head. The nose is strong oatmeal. Deep, earthy roasted malts. Cocoa. The taste is quite sweet. Chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. A bit of cinnamon and vanilla. Slightly spicy in the dry finish. Light, effervescent body. OK.
