On tap at the brewery. Black appearance with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate malt, fresh coffee and mild roast. Similar flavor, adding mild to moderate sweetness and a light bitter balance. Rich, malty and smooth with soft carbonation and a pleasant finish. Nice. KUEric (979) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 17, 2018
On draft, pours ... well exactly like every other Oatmeal stout out there. Dark brown, almost black with a tan head that lingers. Aromas of biscuit, a tiny bit of coffee and toffee. Flavor is a little more bitter than your average stout, imo. Good, not great. Nothing special. dobberon (1) - Arizona, USA - FEB 11, 2017 does not count
Great stout for folks that may not be stout fans. It had a smooth taste, less bitter than most stouts. Also less filling, allowing you to try more! BeerandBlues2 (14588) - Escondido, California, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Initial aroma is green and spicy jalapeno with moderate dark roasted malt, notes of chocolate and coffee. The beer pours dark brown to black with a large, frothy and bubbly beige head. Slowly receding, the head forms a thin film and leaves spotty lacing. A secondary aroma introduces oatmeal notes alongside light woody and earthy hops, and finishes with notes of dates. The flavor is bold lightly sweet chocolate, cold brewed coffee sans all roast malt derived bitterness, lightly spicy and peppery, moderate roast malt, light woody hops and bitterness with notes of charred oak. Dark malt is dominant yet allows the other flavors a chance to introduce themselves and then finishes lightly sweet. Full body and light carbonation with a light prickliness lasting.maley1 (1301) - Calgary, CANADA - DEC 4, 2016
As the beer warms the initial aroma reminiscent of fresh jalapenos fades and reveals a complex roast, chocolate and coffee malt blend. I always find it interesting how roast malt develops over time and, more specifically, temperature. Overall, this beer presents a complex dark malt profile, yielding light sweetness and faint notes of dark fruits.
Dark brown pour with small tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts and faint hops. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, slight cocoa and faint hops. Light bodied, high carbonation, roasty bitter finish, thin mouthfeel.

Smell is general stout. Taste is coffee, malt, dark chocolate, and very slight hops. Medium body, low carbonation, and no foam. mcberko (20908) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
On tap at Wren House Brewing, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out oats and almost no notice of the coffee. Flavour brings out a lot more coffee upfront, followed by dry oats and some chocolate. Full-bodied and well-balanced and constructed. Good. M15ter (60) - - JUN 17, 2016
Black, opaque with thin tan head.
Coffee, nut, chocolate aromas.

32oz growler pours with a deep dark body that supports a thin tan head. The aroma offers up some rich coffee, an earthy coffee note and then deeply roasted coffee towards the end of the draw and a faint sense of nuttiness. The taste delivers smooth coffee notes that quickly ramp up into dark roasted malts and some burnt maltiness. There are snippets of sweetness here and there as the roastiness ratchets up another notch or two. Solid coffee brew. PartyFowle (954) - - OCT 1, 2015
Draft. Clear yet dark burgundy with a thin tan head. Candy corn, cocoa powder and raisins in the aroma, in decreasing order of intensity. There’s very little coffee aroma in this coffee stout. Same deal in the flavor -- sweet candy corn and cola up front, along with some dark fruits; soft oats and a gentle burnt malt character at the finish. Body is a velvety medium; carbonation is very mild. Good oatmeal flavor, but definitely needs a better showing from the coffee.
