3.94/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

appearance: Very stout dark, nearly opaque, some cola highlights. Fairly thin tan head.
smell: Very pleasing imo though not a lot going on.Pretty mild cocoa with some sweetness. I would not have guessed coffee if it hadn't been in the name.
taste: much like the nose. I like this though it's pretty much a "light weight" not much coffee or stout richness. Nice finish with a touch of bitterness that's overcome by a bit of sweetness.
overall: Nice enough, not something I'll be seeking out.

Serving type: bottle

3.31/5  rDev -16.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Very dark brown, near black body beneath a light tan head that's a bit on the thin side.

Smell: Roasty nose of darkened malts with just a hint of basic chocolate and a touch of dark fruit.

Taste: A light chary, ashen roast with a minimal backing of chocolate and estery fruitiness. Minimal hop character, bitterness. While waiting for the coffee character and some soft, succulent oats to burst forward, well, that's when you hit the drying, lightly fruity finish with a bit of alcohol. This ride is over.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Just a bit of medium carbonation.

Overall: A little thin and lackluster considering the words "oatmeal" and "coffee" being prominently featuring in its name. Hey, I want the version Zach had!

Serving type: on-tap

Bottles January 20, 2014.

Pours pitch black, with a one finger latte colored head. Nose is earthy coffee, a bit like FBS without the chocolate. Coffee actually seems less pronounced on the palate. A touch of oatmeal sweetness comes through that's pretty nice as well. Flavor has solid hang time on the palate as well. Not that I mind. Mouthfeel fairly creamy.

Overall, a great stout, but not pronounced enough in any category to choose it over WNB or FBS.

Pours a dark chestnut brown color that appears pitch black and completely opaque in the glass with faint mahogany edges and a two finger beige head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention taking a while to settle and leaving sporadic spotty lacing behind.

Slightly smokey roasted dark malt aroma that's slightly one dimensional and slightly acrid. Strong gourmet roast saves the nose but there is a really strong burnt/charcoal like presence with hints of charred toast, oatmeal, dark chocolate and ash. As it warms the coffee/espresso bean notes stand out along with subtle sweeter light malts. Nice coffee presence elevates the aroma a bit but it's still overly roasted and one note for my preference.

On the fuller end of medium body with slightly better balance than expected but still heavily dominated by robust, deeply roasted malt. Very dry and somewhat acrid with burnt toast/malt flavor along with bitter dark chocolate, ash, charcoal, and used coffee grinds. The coffee presence was really nice in the nose but isn't very pleasant on the palate. Tastes similar to old burnt coffee and is in desperate need of more sweetness to balance things out. There's a touch of lighter malt with sweet chocolate and caramel but it isn't enough to counter the heavy roast/burnt coffee flavors.
