Wow -- I did not expect to like this beer... the name implies it will be a sickly sweet mess of a beer. But lo and behold, this was quite delicious. Thick viscous black pour, with cocoa powder-colored head that recedes to a thin rim around the surface of the beer. Very doughy, bready smell, with hints of coffee. This beer delivers in the taste just what it says it will: coffee and oatmeal. The nutty oatmeal notes are there, perhaps more than any other oatmeal stout I've ever had. The coffee, while not overpowering, is assertive, and provides a good deal of bitterness to combine with the roasted malt and keep this from being too sweet. It also comes through in a fresh roasted espresso dusty finish. The mouthfeel is as smooth as silk, and the drinkability is just amazing for such a dense beer. I could start the day with one of these on a regular basis.
Cheers to Jetsbeer for the sample!

Bottle shared by Curran. Thanks man!
Pours a thin looking watery black, with a small quarter inch head, and not much lacing.
Smells incredibly strongly of nutty roasted coffee, with roasted malt, and baker's chocolate.
This has one of the strongest coffee flavors in a stout that I've ever had, but it's also nicely integrated, as well. Creamy chocolate and vanilla flavor- slightly bitter chocolate chip flavor, with Hershey's syrup, a cookies and cream flavor, and a very small amount of hop bitterness.
This one is medium bodied, but I wish it was a little thicker. Low carbonation, creamy, very smooth mouthfeel.
A real classic that I'm glad I'm finally getting to try for the 1st time.
