This is fantastic oatmeal stout - pours dark and creamy with a mocha-like head. Complex aroma of toasted malt, expresso, and dark chocolate. A profound taste combining rich toasted malt with a surprising infusion of almost citrus-like hops. Long lingering finish that reflects the taste of the beer. A must try for any stout lover.

Chocolate, caramel, bread crust, and roasted grains in the aroma along with a touch of flowery hops. The body is black and opaque with a deep mocha head. The flavor is intensely roasty but smooth. Lots of coffee grounds and bitter, spicy/grapefruit-like hops. The finish is bitter and tart. Silky with low carbonation but a good bite.

Consistently flavorful throughout, particularly thanks to the roasted grains and bitter/citrusy hops. Just enough carbonation to be satisfying but little enough not to interfere with the smoothness of the texture. Solid and straightforward.

Really didn't find this stout to be anything special. No outstanding flavors. Not sure why it's rated so high.

first of all, it smells delicious. it's like those super chewy chocolate candies. riesens, i think they're called.

it pours black as night. and light doesn't penetrate it at all. i actually held it up to a light bulb and it was like "yeah, (frank) that".

it has a thick dark tan (almost brown) head that sticks around and gets kind of lumpy after a while before it dissipates, sticking to the glass the entire way.

it's creamy and smooth and goes down easy. it's delicious and refreshing when it's cold and it gets even better as it warms up a little bit (you can really taste the riesens). it's the perfect amount of sweetness. it's definitely there but not even close to being overpoweringly sweet.

This is how a stout *should* feel, not too thick, but not watery. A solid stout with good carbonation, pairs well with spicy food.
