Holy flavor country, Batman! Whatever you do, don't let this beer be your last of the evening (especially after 2 DIPAs and a barleywine!) or it might work up a bit of gag reflex. As long as you're smart enough to start this one with a fresh palate and clear head, you're in for a gloriously rich, powerful, sweet, roasty oatmeal stout. Dense as a bog, and featuring a bit of the earthy smell of one too, but the real flavor players here are some intense roasted, smokey oatmeal, wood, sweet malts, whole grain bread, and even a bit of barbecued meat. This would go really well with a well-done steak and potatoes dinner, and could probably even substitute for your dinner if you were in a pinch. Not sure if I could recommend drinking more than one at a time without getting a little palate cleansing pale ale in between (or a glass of water, I guess). (858 characters)

This is everything an oatmeal stout should be. Nice roasted malt flavor with the creaminess you would expect from the oats. I would seek this one out, (152 characters)

Pours intensely thick and builds a creamy head of dark brown foam. Nicely aromatic nose of charred oats, marshmallows, coffee roast, chocolate malts, Graham cracker and embers.

The flavor is dry with a ribbon of sweetness. I'd swear it was a fruit stout. It ends with a charred oatmeal, chocolate malt and light roasted coffee. It also holds some bitterness from the hops.

This drinks a bit thin, for how viscous the pour was, but overall it's a satisfying beer. (464 characters)

Poured into a pint glass, pours a lighter black with a small brown head. Smells of coffee and chocolate. Tastes of slight chocolate and slight caramel with coffee predominance. Beer is medium bodied good carbonation, goes down very easy for its potency. Overall a pretty good beer. (281 characters)

On tap at Union. Served in a Union sampler glass.

Pours a very dark brown. Nice big tan head with good retention and nice lacing as it goes down the glass. Thin collar throughout.

Nose is really nice with roast and chocolate alongside a faint hoppiness. Rich body with heavy chocolate and a bit of roast. Nice backing oats. A bit too roasty through the finish for me, but otherwise quite nice. (396 characters)
