Damn this is good and I’ll tell you why. I love dark fruit flavors. Big time prune flavor. Very very strong flavors of chocolate, caramel and coffee. super duper tasty!. A hair too much carbonation. Bitter aftertaste that lingers. Smoke and peat. When I drink this beer I am transported to England.

Very nice solid oatmeal stout. Hits all the key points as well as has a little surprising heat to it! BuckeyeBoy (7937) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 11, 2012
12oz Bottle pours out dark brown almost black topped with a long lasting tan head. Aroma of sweet malts, milk chocolate, oats, and dark roast. Taste light sweetness, little bitterness on the very end. A well done brew. Dodgrblu (752) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 11, 2012

Bottle. Pours black brown with a tiny khaki film that dissipates to a thin collar. Aroma has roasted malt a little soy and cereal and some faint plum. Taste is bitter and roasted malt with noticeable plum raisin flavors as well some soy. Palate is full and slick with a dry finish.

Aroma: The nose is fairly subtle, roasted coffee and chocolate malts, and a little toast
Appearance: This beer pours a dark brown-black color without much head or lace
Flavor: The taste is light-medium sweet, with a good amount of roasted flavor, and a mild bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, though it leans light for the style, with a soft carbonation, and a mild dryness
This one was another solid one from the beer camp series, but it wasn’t a top of style example for me. Still though, this is a good one, and definitely worth trying.
Bottle. Dark brown pour, almost black, cream light tan head. Milk chocolate, roast, cream, and oats. Mouthfeel is fairly heavy. This pretty good, well worth trying once. Suttree (6415) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Black, big brown head. Smells like an oatmeal raisin cookie served with a cup of coffee. Flavor is coffee, some sweet fruity notes, and a dry woody finish. Nicely full bodied. marcus (10337) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours dark brown with an attractive tan head and a chocolate and treacle aroma. There is a smooth dark molasses and roasted malt flavor with a chocolate finish that sticks to the palate. Very tasty. radagast83 (8137) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2012
12oz bottle from Beer Camp box set. Poured a dark brown color with a medium sized, creamy tan head. Aroma was plenty of roasted malts, milk chocolate, cocoa, and some oat, cereal notes. Flavor was pretty great - oat notes, with plenty of malts, milk chocolate. Alcohol is really well masked here. Perhaps a little rough around the edges, but really enjoyed it.
