This beer pours a nearly opaque black color. The head is half an inch in height, and recedes quickly into sparse lacing. The aroma is of roasted and burnt malts, hints of cream and baker's chocolate. The taste is like the aroma, but with the additions of a nice coffee finish. The aroma is medium bodied with a velvety texture, and nice carbonation. Overall, this is a very nice beer, that I would easily drink again.

12 ounce bottle with no decipherable date listed.
I drank a few of these yesterday, but was not near a computer, so I will try reviewing this by memory.
A- very dark, brown/black
S- a hint of coffe and chocolate
T- simialr to the smell, with a mild coffe and chocoalte flavor
M- average carbonation
D- these went down fairly easily, better than the Lucky Logger, which I mistakenly thought was better than this stout.

12oz bottle brought back from WI recently. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a deep pitch black. Thin beige head on top. The nose is really rich and bursting with sweet chocolate notes, syrup, a little booze. Really nice aroma. The mouth is moderately full. Carbonation is decent. It's not as thin as others have noted. The edges could be smoothed out a bit, as there is a bit of a bite of carb at the back end. This is a roasted malt-forward beer for sure. A bit of char in the mouth, some smoke, and mild semi-sweet cocoa. This was a decent drink, and one I would revisit.
I was surprised to see such low ratings from all the recent reviews, which makes me wonder if there's a bit of "follow-the-crowd" mentality. Is this the best Oatmeal Stout out there? By no means. But nor do I think it deserves the low ratings across the board. Good beer. Try it for yourself.

The beer pours opaque black with an inch of dark tan head that laces pretty well.
The smell is faint, but mainly roasted malt with a hint of chocolate.
The taste has the roasted malt flavor with a biscuit tone and a hint of chocolate again.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly coating.
Drinkability is pretty good and as you may want from this style of beer, it can be pretty filling. Definitely worth a try.

A - Poured out an opaque, jet black color with a small, foamy, cappuccino-like head that was brown with hints of ruby. It left little to no lace.
S - It smelled of oats, coffee and sweet chocolate.
T - Tasted of some good java with a strong, sweet chocolate flavor. There was a little bitterness but not as much as I expect in an oatmeal stout.
M - It was crisp and smooth. A light bodied ale.
D - This is a pretty good brew. It doesn't taste like most oatmeal stouts but it was still good.

The basically black body reveals glints of dark brown when held to a light. The tan head doesn't get far off the ground, but retains a while as a skim and laces well.
Dilute coffee nose, sweetened with milk chocolate, vanilla, and hazelnut. Bits of papery astringency are noted, especially as it warms.
Toasty and roasty once into the mouth, Grainy with minor inflections of coffee and bitter cocoa. Everything seems a bit ashen and washed out. Oats add traces of smooth graininess. None of the other, sweeter, aromas show up in the taste. It fades with a indifferent wintergreen-herb hop bitterness.
Much lighter in body than it needs to be. The template might be there, but it needs fleshing out.

Pours out dark chocolate brown and sits black in the glass with a small light brown head fading quickly to a light skimming around the edges.
Dark toasty malts on the nose, slightly burnt charachter and bits of coffee. Candy-like caramel and butterscoth all around the edges.
Dry roasted malts with an instant-coffee-like flavor permeating every corner. Mild bitterness with vague hints of caramel.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall an average stout.

12oz single, purchased at riley's a while back. sat in the fridge for an abnormally long time due to the low reviews
appearance: poured into a Guinness pint, very dark mahogany body with a light chocolate cap and light retention...certainly nothing wrong here
smell: roasted oats, dry chocolate, a little butter detected
taste: the worst of the 3 pearl street singles - very watered down. light roasted oats, minimal chocolate - not sure what happened to this one
moutheel: light, watery
