Oh my god! this is the best beer I ever tasted. Chocolate and coffee notes give way to ab absolutely heavy mouthfeel. Very little bitterness. This is what I drink every day, I accept no substitute. I always pour it a little fast so the tan head is nice and thick. There is nothing light and watery about this beer!

A - Perfect Dark. Poured with some creamy looking head.

S - Good Oatmeal stout freshness.

T - Some sweetness at the start followed by bitterness and dark oatmeal.

M - A bit too much bite and carbonation for me but maybe I've been drinking too many aged stouts to be a good judge.

O - A quality choice in the Oatmeal Stout world. Good flavor.

Bottle received in trade from BeerKangaroo, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a solid dark brown/black with a decent sized bubbly tan head that quickly dissipates to a small cap on top. Aromas of coffee and chocolate with bits of caramel and cereal grains and hints of fruit. The flavor is what I expected from the aroma. Roasted creamed coffee with a touch of chocolate and caramel and a hint of lactose? Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Decent brew, but seems a bit lacking in body and mouthfeel.

A: Pitch black. I wouldn't drink this if the USDA didn't exist.

S: Not much of a smell, which is fine.

T: Oats and alcohol bite, some sweetness. Finishes smooth and creamy.

M: Great, creamy mouthfeel that crawls over your tongue.

O: Good beer, not particularly memorable but a good specimen of its class.

An aggressive pours yields a one finger tan head that sticks around and leaves some lacing.

Smell is sort of subdued, but its clean and there's hints of several components. First is a sweet yeasty smell, some floral notes. Others are fudge, cocoa, coffee, dark fruit like figs and dates.

Taste is great with coffee dominating, and a sweet robust malty quality, perhaps the oats. Chocolate and cocoa is there as well. Very clean taste.

Feel is medium carb and a semi-slick feel. Flavor coats the tongue and then leaves a very dry taste.

Overall I do like this oatmeal stout, as I think its on par with 8 ball stout and some others, pretty good.

A: Black with a short brown head, beautiful.

S: Oatmeal, roasted malt, coffee and chocolate in the nose.

T: Sweet oatmeal, bitter coffee and dark chocolate. Very good.

M: Smooth and full bodied. Very good body for a stout.

O: A delicious stout. I'd love to have a bourbon barrel aged version of perhaps an imperial Vanilla Oatis.
