At the brewery before the penn state Wisconsin game. Go Penn State. Pours an non translucent black with a thick darn head that leaves a ring. Smell is chocolately with roasted malt and oatmeal. The taste is heavy on the oatmeal that gives why to a dark chocolate finish with some coffee. Very nice beer best one I’ve had here. Well done.
On tap at the source. Sweet malts. Roasted grains. Chocolate. Oatmeal. Not overly sweet. Nicely made. Solid!. 13.7 edgallow (4640) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 8, 2017

Draught sample at the brewpub, October 13th. Inky black, completely opaque, with a bit of off-white head that lasts as a persistent small ring...sweet aroma of oatmeal with brown sugar, perhaps a bit of raisin - a good breakfast choice and here I can comprehend stout-with-breakfast...a tiny hint of sweetness at the front, quickly turning to intense roasty bitterness which lasts through the whole taste, with a very dry, bitter, lightly ashy finish...just a tad on the thin side, slightly overcarbonated. I took my time with this and it definitely improved over the tasting; why oh why can good brewpubs with serious brewers still not serve their beers at the proper temperature? This was never going to be a great one for me, but I can imagine enjoying a full pint at a much warmer temp more than I could this sample, or it’s BBA cousin which followed, cold.

Sample at the brewpub. Murky brownish-black color with a medium tan head that recedes gradually to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and coffee. Medium body with flavors of roasted coffee, dark chocolate and malt. The finish is sweet with a mocha aftertaste. Decent overall. DrSilverworm (10000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2014

Draft. Dark black/brown pour. This one is slightly more robust than your typical oatmeal sotut otherwise its pretty standard. rockbeer (42) - , Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2014
On draft at Vintage. Pours really dark with small dark creamy head. Hints of oatmeal and unsweetened chocolate. Smooth clean finish but lacking the true oatmeal stout punch. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2013
