This is the most complete oatmeal stout I have ever had! As soon as you pour this beer into a glass it feels your nostrils will wonderful chocolate and coffee notes. These are the exact flavors that attack your taste buds. I dare you to find a better oatmeal stout... It won't happen!

A big light brown head takes its time to settle into a pretty nice lacing above a clear ( I think ) super dark brown to black colored beer.

Super dark roasted malts with the aroma of them being burnt harbor some bakers chocolate, coffee, and oatmeal aspects.

Rich dark roasted malts with unsweetened chocolate, light roasted coffee, and a thickness of oatmeal taste.

A creamy yet lightly dry aftertaste with some of the dark roasted malt characteristics hanging around on this full bodied creamy thick stout.

A very well done oatmeal stout, not to much chocolate or coffee coming through, yet it has that full roasted malt body that makes you want to take another drink and another, etc.

Pours dark, dark brown, just about black, with a nice mocha head and decent lacing. A deep roasty aroma paired with very light sugars from the oats, slight but enough to let you know this is an oatmeal stout rather than american stout; coffee and cream, bakers chocolate, roasted barley, and sugars. Slight alcohol is present. Flavor starts of a roasty with some sugars from the oats, but then midstreams everything picks up and the flavor kinda erupts, big coffee that grows in its burntness as it develops, bakers chocolate that also continues to develop into the finish, and all with the sugars from the oats to add some balance to everything. A smooth medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, Marble with a fantastic beer here. One of the best stouts I have tried.

Out of a bomber bottle this beer was an opaque black color with three full fingers worth of tan head. The retention was excellent as a thin cap that left thick band after band of lacing all the way down my glass. The aroma was rich and earthy, a blend of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, milk chocolate and a hint of molasses. The flavors were delicious! I tasted lots of chocolate, roasted malt, hints of earth/wet soil, mocha coffee and sweet malt. The bitterness that appeared towards the end balanced the sweet elements well and the flavor of milk chocolate lingered on my tongue after the finish. The mouthfeel was smooth and a bit frothy, the body full and the carbonation perfect. An outstanding version of this style and one of the best I’ve had in a long time. Go Nuevo Mexico!

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #38 (Mar 2010):

Towering, robust brown head. Yeah ... this beauty is black through and through. Aroma burst with burnt caramel, freshly ground coffee and cocoa powder. Creamy, dreamy medium body; semi-silky. The taste buds have a lot to cover here, from a slight fruity yeast tone and hop bitterness, to charred grain and burnt sugar flavors. Hints of choco- late cake batter, burnt biscuits and an iced coffee show off the complexity here. The sweetness that builds up is a perfect balance against the roasted grain; hint of dark fruit within the roasty finish.

How much more sessionable can a beer get? Right to style without any attribute jump- ing up too high--a prime example for Oatmeal Stouts.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: About as black as black can be. Great foam.

Smell: Great chocolate qualities. I'm picky about chocolate levels, but this is great!

Taste/Mouthfeel: An incredible stout. Coffee and chocolate with a superb burnt character in the finish. One of the best. Good velvety texture in feel.

Drinkability: I could drink and enjoy a few of these.

Overall: I only tried a bit, but it's already one of my favorite stouts.

Have had this beer both on draft and in a bomber (which is a recent development for the brewery). Either way is delicious

Marble created a lovely brew in this one - an expresso colored bomber of bliss. Once poured from its glass prison, you'll get a really foamy toasted almond head with tons of tasty aromas. Roasted coffee, dark chocolate and toasted malt are really evident and are expected for the style. The flavor fits all of the scenty goodness and is extremely well blended, so as not to overwhelm with too much robustness. And you can taste the oats, which seems right given it's an OATmeal stout. I've had other oatmeal stouts where you didn't get that taste and it just seemed downright improper. While not a thick beer, the brew does have some body to it. If you were to gauge it on a scale of 1-10, 1 being Bud Light and 10 being molasses, then I'd give it a 7. The aftertaste consists majorly of malt and coffee, but is subtle and enjoyable. This beer is on tap at the Marble Brewery all year long, but also can be found at various restaurants in town - I recently had it at Savoy up by Juan Tabo and Montgomery. They have recently made this a bomber that you can find any good liquor store in town (Quarters, Kelly's, Jubliation, etc...). Just waiting for it to get in six packs... Anyway, go get this beer!

Appearance - 5.0/5.0 - Dark expresso, foamy almond head

Smell - 4.0/5.0 - Subtle, but definite scents of coffee, malt and chocolate

Taste - 4.5/5.0 - Well blended malt and coffee flavors, with a definite sense of oats

Feel - 4.5/5.0 - Medium bodied, with good coverage of the mouth and enjoyable aftertaste

Drinkability - 4.5/5.0 - Most definitely -would have gotten a 5.0 if I could get it in six packs.
