Ok like this is Brown, dark and it is that simple, no need to get fancy. Smooth, toasty and creamy. Nicely done. Oh you want to know about the taste. Well roasted and toasted very well and leaves the mouth/tongue clean. The feel on the mouth is, "give me more" and refreshing to boot. Overall this is a well brewed oatmeal stout.

On tap at Grace in Portland ME 1/30/12, review from notes.

A: dark brown practically black in color, two fingers of thick off-white head sticks around for quite a while. An appropriately appearing stout.

S: lots of coffee, some nuttiness--filberts, chocolate overtones, earthy roasted malts.

T: mostly coffee and roasted malts, some hazelnut, finishes with a hint of chocolate.

M: smooth, good carbonation but not overdone. Pretty easy drinking.

O: A good stout to be sure. Nothing overwhelmingly special but soldly built and everything a stout should be. Definitely recommend.

Pours a deep brown, almost black with minimal creamy tan head and minimal lacing. Aroma is of coffee, chocolate, earthy, and slightly smokey. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and pretty well carbonated. Taste is of nuts, coffee, some chocolate, and a bit of smoke. Pretty decent stout right here.

Poured into nonic pint glass. Almost black with two fingers of tan colored head. Smells of chocolate and roasted malt. Taste follows the nose. Exceptionally well balanced. The roasty flavors are there but they don't overpower the sweet and chocolatey flavors. The mouthfeel is what really sets this one apart. Rich, smooth, and creamy. Dry finish with moderate bitterness. Perfect example of what an oatmeal stout should be. I think I'll be reaching for this one often.

Let me start by saying I am not a coffee drinker. That said, I am sure that if I was I would have graded this beer much higher.
Poured from bottle to pint glass balck with some reddish hues and a minimal cream head. Smells like coffee and roasted malts. Tastes bitter like carbonated coffee. Did I mention I don't like coffee? I got this in a trade and I would never buy. I love a good stout but not one that is has such a dominant coffee taste.

Ok its starting to be fall and let me tell you this this is a great fall and winter beer. I am starting to love, and i do mean oatmeal stouts and this is a damn fine one if you want my homest opinion. IT was almost pure black with a white head that could give you a mustache. COnsidering it is all organic ingredients i was very impressed with how good it was. If you like oatmeal stouts than i would say make sure this one is on your list.

Poured an attractive deep black with a small head that fades quickly. Smell is strong with a heavy dose of roasted coffee beans. Taste is the same, tons of roastiness with some bitter chocolate as well. Earthy hop undertones balance this one out nicely. I love the taste of the beer but could understand it being too much for others. Body is OK, not as thick as I would like, but not too thin to detract from the beer. Great taste plus average ABV= high drinkability. I pick up a 6er or two whenever I'm in vermont. A real standout in the Wolaver's line
