In a word "meh." Nothing great, not horrible but the six pack I bought was definitely more of than I want to drink. You can actually taste the grittiness of the coffee beans, but no actual coffee. There's some chocolate overtones, but in a powered box kind of way. It leaves a hell of an after taste, and again not in a good way. The more I write, the more I don't like the beer.

Poured out a dark brown, looked thick, mild head on it, about 1/2" in height. Aroma, lacked the java component I was looking for at the time. I'm starting to think these oatmeal coffee stouts really absorb the coffee or something, they don't really lead to a coffee forward experience.

Taste, just kinda meh, still missing the coffee component, seems like they just roasted a shit ton of malt for a regular kind of stout (non imperial nor barrel aged) to lay this down on. Tastes a little too bitter, I wonder if this is relatively over hopped or something. Different amalgamation of stuff going on, but this should be a beer that is straightforward with the coffee, and ultimately, is somewhat of a letdown because it lacks that component.

I would drink again, merely to confirm the absence of the coffee I had. Man, this year is taking longer than ever to get the reviews in from March Madness, thanks to koufax21 for bringing this one.
