One of the first craft beers I used to drink before I knew what craft was. 12oz. bottle served in a shaker pint. Pours one shade darker than cola with a frothy, quarter inch, mocha-colored head. Head eventually settles into a soapy slick that coalesces around the shoulders. A few thin swaths of lacing are present during the tasting. Nose is roasty with cocoa notes and a hint of vanilla extract. Taste consistent with nose but a little ashy and there's a feint metallic quality. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body (but closer to light) with a prickly, slightly gassy carbonation. Overall, not a bad oatmeal stout, but a little thin and perhaps a bit past it's prime.

Pours a very dark colour, roughly three fingers of mocha coloured head, little lacing. Aroma is quite nice and inviting, mostly mocha and coffee. Nice mouthfeel, not overly heavy or overwhelming. The aftertaste is inoffensive. Probably not as heavy as you would expect for an oatmeal stout. Not overly bitter on the tongue, something you could definitely have more than one of, especially at a reasonable 5% ABV. Something I would recommend to pretty much anyone in the depths of a long winter.

Purple black and viscous, with a creamy, clingy lavender-tan stout head. 4
Malted chocolate shake nose with some port, fig, and sweet coffee - deep and tasty. 4.5
Coffee ice cream up front with a roasty bite, some dates, and a touch of ash. 4.25
Bittersweet chocolate chip ending and drying tannic linger.
Almost medium and plenty creamy. 4

-- Intriguing nose but not as full and smooth as I’d expect for an oatmeal stout. For that, though, there’s piles of nuance - a bit of smoke, black fruit, cola… Almost like it’s halfway between an English Stout and an RIS in flavor profile. Possibly the most interesting oatmeal stout I’ve had. 4.25

Very dark, toasty and far from unidimensional.

Poured from a pint can into a nonic. Jet black w three fingers of tan foam head that slowly recedes and leaves extensive lacing. The nose is dark roast coffee, dark fruit, and earthy hops. Taste closely follows, w an added turn from rye bread, bitter cocoa, and rich caramel. Lingering finish adds a hint of maple syrup to the overall roastiness and dark bread flavor. Cascade and Willamette make a welcome appearance as well. Medium body w heavy carbonation, very pleasant to drink.
