Awesome oatmeal stout. Very comparable to Browns oatmeal stout, but slightly thicker and better hints of oatmeal.

Finally, I found an oatmeal stout that is equal to (POSSIBLY better than, haven't decided yet) Drake's Crude oatmeal stout. This is sooooo tasty and sooo delicious. it tastes like a sweet creamy buttery sweet treat rather than beer. you know the butter beer in harry potter that instantly warmed them up etc? yea thats this stuff right here. the only reason drake's crude i think beats it is because wolavers is 5.9% and DC is 6.9%. Still top notch though.

This is my new king of Stouts. It is a very good beer and it is organic which makes no difference to me, but does not hurt the taste. It is a bit better on than in a bottle, but both are worth trying. I had it at a bar in Disney's Contempary Hotel (where the old gameroom used to be) and it was on tap with their pale ale. This is my new favorite next to Edmund Fitzgerald by Great Lakes Brewery,

Dark brown with a decent brown head, good carbonation and some lace rings; poured "creamy"... Roasty, coffee, chocolate aroma and rich flavor .. a bit bittersweet but handles it nicely. Medium-full bodied, creamy, and smooth with a dry roasty bitter finish.

Excellent drinkability !!!

Smooth and creamy. Perfect coffee, chocolate richness. Carbonation was perfect for style giving it a rich feel. Very dark, almost black, with reddish hues. Very subtle hop aroma and flavor. A perfect example of an Oatmeal Stout.

The perfect winter beer. I can drink these all night long. Fantastic in a growler from the brewery in Middlebury, VT.

This is by far the best beer I have ever had in my entire life. I for sure haven't had every beer in the world, but so far this is the winner. Color is a black as could be. Smell is amazing, smells malty and smooth just like a stout should smell. Taste is out of the world, so smooth, so creamy, so malty, so GOOD! And of course it's drinkable, how couldn't it be with it tasting that good? I don't know what else to say 10/10!

Pours a dark color with minimal head from a growler. It was tightly capped though. Aroma is thick and rich with hints of coffee/oatmeal. Taste starts out with oatmeal in the front but turns into more of a black coffee finish towards the back of the mouth. Smooth and goes down very well. Roasty as well. Nice. Tastes much better in a growler than it does in bottles. I would definitely rate it high for drinkability for one thing. Would make an excellent breakfast beer too.
