Bottle. Dark brown, soft light brown head. Roast and bitter chocolate, creamy oats, medium sweetness, low bitterness. Solid. esjaygee (3902) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Dark brown with ruby lowlights and a creamy brown slowly fading head. Aroma of roosted malt, coffee, oatmeal, salt and soy sauce. Taste of chocolate, soy sauce, oatmeal and dark roasted malts. Silky and sweet with a zippy finish that packs a bit of heat. Chudwick (3439) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - NOV 24, 2013
12oz bottle thanks to DrSilverworm!!! pours black with rich brown head. Nose is milk chocolate with a tiny bit of roast. Sip adds toffee, coffee and what I guess is oatmeal. Boozy afterbite with a big body. Almost dry. When I saw ""oatmeal stout" on the label I was expecting a 4.5-5% ABV beer and so I got a English pint glass, but to my surprise this in an imperial. Not overpowering for an impy stout, but still quite tasty. all kinds of bitter, but fairly balanced. skoisirius (1908) - Earth, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2013
I’m currently rating every SN brew I’ve ever had in one clean sweep.
I grew up on the classic SN Pale having it around during high school, and since have watched SN grow into a national representation of incredible craft beer. Living 45 mins away is a treat for the random growler fill. Keep up the amazing work and thanks! laiti (8531) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2013

Aroma is a bit odd with oaty notes, some wallpaper paste, roastiness and cocoa. Flavour has milk chocolate, some lactic acid notes, sugar, cocoa and hints of metal. Decent, although I find the milky notes not so nice here.
355 ml bottle @ RIP camp.tiong (7754) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Pours a pitch black colour with a beige thick head. Aroma of roasted malts, oatmeal cookies, milk chocolate and some syrup. Rich flavour of roasted malts, oatmeal cookies, lactose, grassy bitterness and unfortunately some metallic notes. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and really soft carbonation. Finishes slightly dry, malty and tart (probably from the lactose). Weird, but works on some level.

Bottled June 21, 2012 -
Pours pitch black with a large brown head. Aroma of roastiness, cream cracker, sweet oat, hints of ash and dark chocolate. Taste is roasty, sweetish and syrupy with notes of dark chocolate, cream cracker and biscuit. Finish is dry, roasty, biscuity and chocolatey with hints of syrup and oat. A bit untypical, but quite tasty imperial stout.
355 ml bottle @ RIP Camp.wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2013
Pours black color with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, wood, oat and hops. Flavor of chocolate, cocoa, caramel malts, faint vanilla notes, hops and wood. Sweet milky chocolaty palate with a somewhat bitter malty finish. Good.
Bottle, Corks, Bristol. Good looking label. Deep dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Choc, roast and dark fruit in the nose. Sweetish flavour with more choc, roasted malt and a little booze. Smooth, rich sipper. Very enjoyable stuff. cfrancis (3612) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2013
Pours a dark brown with a small brown ring. Aroma is deep roasted malts and oatmeal flakes. Taste is roasted malts and chewy oatmeal. Small dark chocolate bitterness in the end. Thanks to spinrsx for this.
