On tap at a Hilton near MSP, pours black with a thick tan head, looking like a Guinness. Kinda chocolatey carbonated aroma, but nothing very strong. Taste is very chocolate, wants to be heavy but the nitro tap keeps it fluffy, like mousse. Chocolate dominates, but is not an overwhelming flavor. Some light roasted malty bitterness at the very end, but otherwise very smooth throughout. A pretty good beer here Nsanders (1190) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Tap at Blue Door Pub. Deep brown with a big tan head, probably on nitro. Oatmeal, earthy hop, mineral water, and milk aromas. Flavor is lightly bitter all the way through. Body is heavier with a creamy feel. Very tasty, wish Summit would bottle. Rune (13720) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2014
Second day at GBBF 2013, devoted to mainly US ales. One-third pint of this one from gravicask dispense. Named Summit Brewing Vanilla Mocha Oatmeal Stout, 4.7 % abv. Spotty lacing, not much head, dark brown body colour. Earth and chocolate malts on the nose. Flavours of vanilla sweetness offset by dusty hops and mild coffee grounds. Malty, bittersweet tail. Velvety in the mouth. Fine bodied and tasty. (Backlog from London Olympia 14.08.2013). Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - JAN 7, 2014
1/7/2014. Nitro version on tap. Rated malt, chocolate, coffee and molasses. Sweet vanilla flavors with coffee and chocolate showing through. Good balance. Leighton (22773) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
Draft at GBBF 2013 - London. Pours black-brown with a light, white cream head. The aroma holds moderate milk chocolate and vanilla along with secondary coffee notes. Light-medium sweet flavor with mellow chocolate, vanilla-laced coffee, some bitter earth. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Pretty sweet to finish with Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, more milk chocolate. Tasty.

Pours dark brown/black with a medium very creamy tan head...great retention and lacing. Aroma is roasty with mild dark chocolate. Flavor follows suit and adds a nice mild coffee note and a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and creamy with a roasty dark chocolate/bitter finish. Really very tasty! b3shine (9257) - Indiana, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Nitro draft to taster. Looks good; settles into a dark cola with creamy light beige head. Smells and tastes solid; dark malt, chocolate, and light coffee with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A good example of the style. madmitch76 (26368) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2013

GBBF Day 2. Sold as ’Vanilla Cask Mocha Oatmeal Stout’. Opaque dark brown beer. Small bubbly pale tan head. Light dry palate with modest carbonation. Light coffee and fairly sweet vanilla. Nice touch of unsweet dark chocolate. Light dry finish.
On tap at Stout’s. Pours a black color with tan head. Creamy, roasty oatmeal flavors. Alright, a little light bodied for a stout. kaser (6430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Super frothy pour from tap at standard market. Black. Not much nose to it. Light and mild stout. Slight oatmeal notes. Malts. Not a lot going on but I did just have some big beers before this
