From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume III, Issue II:

Very black with a thin but sticky tan lace. Mild roasted grain aroma, a hint of sweetness from the oats and fruitiness from the alcohol way back in the nose. Fluffy, crisp, medium body. Lots of soft charred grain flavor that jumps from charcoal to a medium-roast coffee. Hop bitterness is there but never pushes back on the malt too much. Kiss of fruitiness and caramel in the middle. Pleasant roasted, semisweet finish.

A decent Oatmeal Stout, it's a tough style to go up against, as there are so many that surpass known benchmark beers. Regardless, any true Stout lover shouldn't dismiss a chance to try it.

3.98/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12oz short/snub brown bottle, with a bottled on date.

Appearance: Pitch black beer with a thin creamy tan lace that lasts to the bottom.

Smell: Caramel, toffee, roasted barley, coffee, mild fruity esters, faint sherri, grain and chocolate in the nose.

Taste: A silky smooth/creamy textured and full-bodied robust beer, with a very thick and even malt sweetness. Lots of roasted flavours up-front with a mildly sharp astringency and near sherri-like flavours. Dark chocolate and fruits, light coffee, musty grain and a delicate touch of smoke follow. Hop flavours are hidden in with the bitterness of the roasted barley, however there is a faint touch of citrus & floral flavours underneath that help cut the malt characters. Finishes with some roasted, smoke an chocolate in the aftertaste -- slightly dry.

Notes: Hmm ... a very nice, full and complex stout. The addition of oats also provides a unique fullness to this roasty beer. Most definitely worth a try for you stout lovers out there.
