It tastes like some kind of coffee soda. Unless you are a fan of this style, I'd say avoid it. There's nothing good about drinking an alcoholic version of black coffee and club soda. It is not "bad" though; just not my cup of tea. (Bear in mind, I am a fan of dark beer and the various styles from which they originate.)

From one of favorite breweries, Rogue, from Oregon. Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout is my standard for Oatmeal Stout, and this is almost as good. Rogue seems to alway knows how to make sure the brew has character. This outmeal stout is smooth, and, at the same time, has that kick that Rogue loves to add. Pours thick, little lacing or head, a bit musty espresso followed by a slight bitterness. Excellent, maybe great, but not perfect.
