From Iron Abbey Sixpoint beer dinner. Notes only. I actually have no relevant notes, though I remember this being quite good. The only thing I have written down is "I never liked Jes. I have no idea how she got invited to the wedding." Spookgolds (241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Had this one at iron abbey beer dinner, I am a huge fan of stouts, and this one is pretty awesome. Coffee, chocolate, with some sweetness. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Otis! My main man! Multiple pints of this at Blind Tiger, NYC. Thanks to my Brazilian homeboys for serving me up a few and for toasting Sepultura. This was the best of the many beers I tried from Sixpoint this spring, a superb session stout that’s perfectly to style and filled with character. Pour was delectable, with a thick sedimental look to it, and a fat creamy head. Nose of very understated chocolate, abundant (but not over-assertive) roast malts, and some hops. Mouthfeel is really lush and inviting, not a milkshake but thick as hell, with a chalky dry finish. Tastes are more or less what’s promised in the nose, but - with the great texture of the mouthfeel and the finish, and complemented by an addition of mild smoke - even better. Great stuff. maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2011
Draught at rattle n hum. Pours a very dark brown with some red hues as well as a small white head. Toasted aromas are prominant with grass and mint coming into play with some typical coffee and wood flavours. Pine, wood and ripe berries are on the tongue.

On tap at Beer for Beasts. Otis is delicious. Silky smooth and velvety tastes of chocolate, coffee, some caramel and hints ofhops bitterness. Very drinkable stout. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2011
Draft at Rembrandt’s
Pours a deep, dark chestnut brown color that appears black and completely opaque in the glass with the faintest of mahogany edges when held to light. Frothy, pillowy two finger light beige head with excellent retention, barely fading into a lasting cap that leaves streaks and splotches of soapy lacing behind.
Slightly roasted dark malt aroma that is kind of bland with hints of cocoa, toast, oatmeal and coffee rinds.
Medium bodied with a nice balance of roasted, dry and sweet flavors. Lots of roasted malt up front with hints of coffee bean, chocolate and a prominent oatmeal character. There’s a slight lactic cream presence mid-palate that provides nice balance and there is some more bittersweet dark chocolate toward the dry, roasted finish.

Draft @ pacific standard. Pours a pitch black color with no head. Smells of coffee, oats and oak. Taste is chocolate with some mild hops in the aftertaste once the sweetness goes away. Almost reminds me of a porter. Pretty decent and easy to drink. mansquito (6437) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Some bar in Williamsburg, NY pint ($6): Pours a black color with a creamy light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, and hops. This is very bitter for a sweet stout (in fact, are not oatmeal stouts typically regarded just as normal stouts?). Good amount of hops complimented by the roasted malts. Very soft carbonation and very creamy mouthfeel work together rather well. Chocolate and coffee notes abound. A solid, easy drinking stout. msojka (457) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 18, 2010
On tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours black with a lasting tan head. Smells of sweet coffee with some chocolate notes. Tastes mesh well on the tongue with some carbination as well. Taste is overall similar to nose, very enjoyable.
