Fortunate enough to have had this on-draft at Parker Pie Co. in West Glover, Vt. My good friend, a Kingdom-native and Hill aficionado who had tried this before me was underwhelmed. I figured to give it a try.
A: Silky black and oily with a gorgeous mocha head. Looks great.
S: Coffee, syrupy, chocolately. Smells great.
T: Whoa. Damn. I usually find non-imperial stouts watery and sour, but this hits the nail on the head. Sweet and sour, but well balanced in it. Coffee is most pronounced with a good deal of chocolate, also some vanilla. Absolutely fantastic.
M: Very well done. One of the few Oatmeal stouts I've had with a good mouthfeel. Thick and satisfying. As my underwhelmed friend observed, "it's like a meal." Probably moreso than a Guinness, frankly.
O: Glad to have brought a bottle home with me. Try it for yourself if you can, but this is the only Oatmeal stout I've ever ben wow'ed by. Fantastic.
Serving type: on-tap

Love Coffee Stout beers.
A-Jet black with about a two finger head.
S-Awesome roasted coffee with a small hints of Oats. I also get some really nice chocolate smell.
T-Really nice bitterness from the coffee with some strong cocoa taste. Nice creamy oat taste.
M-Medium body, nice carbonation and very creamy.
O-Very nice Stout. Not in the league of FBS or Double Shot from Tree House, but its very good.
