Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: pours thick, black as night with a light brown finger and a half head.

Smell: roasted malts and coffee! Not a very strong smell, though.

Taste: strong coffee and roasted malts. Very good taste. Alcohol taste lingers at the end.

Mouthfeel: thick in the mouth with a lot of carbonation

Overall: the more I drink the lower the score gets, unfortunately. The carbonation is off-putting to me. Still a great beer, though. I wouldn't hesitate to get it again.

Saw someone mention this in the forums and was curious. I had looked over Rogue's stuff, but wasn't willing to try it...this one said "Oatmeal Stout" and the last one I had was fairly good, so I gave this one a shot.

I love the full-bodied taste and the sweetness that undercuts the bitterness. Its not enough to cut it entirely, and it does sit on the palate and bite afterward. But really, this is strong, rich and smooth. The chocolate-y coffee notes are there, and thus make this beer definitely a new favorite of mine.

Had this on nitro-tap, pours incredibly smooth and took quite a while for the head to settle. The smell is very light, hints of oatmeal and malt. The Oatmeal gives the taste a sweetness which we really enjoy. You can taste the oatmeal, malts, and overall roasted flavor. The mouthfeel is amazingly smooth and so easy to drink. Overall this beer was extremely enjoyable and very well done.
