3.68/5  rDev -0.3%

poured a deep brown, virtually black color with tanish head that feel to a slight ring. Smell is of coffee, chocolate, and toasted malt and is very pleasant. Taste is strong of coffee and toated malt and follows through with the smell. Aftertaste is a bit dissapointing and fails to follow through from the taste. A very good beer that seems to fail in the finish.

12 oz bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada Imperial Pint. No date or info.

A - Pours out clear and dark amber brown. In the glass, light barely pokes through around the edges. The tan head rises up to a formidable three fingers and slowly descends with clumps of lacing along the way. Great retention!

S - The aroma is great for breakfast; oats and roasted malts with a dry, unsweetened chocolate nose, cocoa, and coffee. Very delicious and inviting this morning.

T - The roasted malts seem to be used in a manner not sparingly as they give the flavor a big dry and bitter flavor that pushes past the other nuances. Again, cocoa, unsweetened chocolate and a bit of coffee but that roasted flavor demolishes all in the end.

M - The oats impart a nice creamy feel to the beer. It's nice and smooth feeling, almost silky, with a well-balanced carbonation crispness to the end and a very dry and bitter finish.

D - Not as good as I had hoped for for breakfast, but it'll do the trick. A good oatmeal stout that'll hold its own against any others. Being strong and assertive makes it a bit more of a chore to drink beyond one or two.

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours a very dark brown, appearing opaque black in the glass with a thin light brown film that dissipates to a thin ring around the glass. Mild aroma of chocolate and toasted malt. Flavor is toasted malt, nice chocolate, day old coffee, finishes with mild hop bitterness and a touch of char. Medium bodied with hints of creaminess. A quite nice low ABV stout. The oatmeal gives it a much more pleasant feel than most light stouts, and the flavors, although not intense, are nicely balanced and pleasant. I don't usually go to the stout style for a session beer, but if I did, this would be an excellent candidate. Mild, but nicely done.

Pours to a dark brown with medium thick tan head that lingers well and leaves okay lacing. Nice malty aroma of chocolate and oatmeal, that seemed to wane just a little as the beer warmed, but was still pleasant. Flavor of this slightly thin-bodied beer was mostly chocolate, and mouthfeel was slightly chewy. Finsih was medium duration and pleasant, but this beer could have been even better had the body been a little fuller.

This brew pours an opaque black color. The head is two fingers in height, and tan in color. Lacing is thorough. The aroma is roasted malt, graham cracker, cream, and coffee. The taste is like the aroma, but a little less pronounced. The mouthfeel is medium-full bodied, with a lot of carbonation that detracts a bit from the flavor. Overall, this is a pretty good stout that I would drink again.

Pours black with thin layer of tan head that dissolves quickly to thin lacing, but sticks around until the very end.

I'm not grabbing a real solid aroma but what is there is a real thin chocolate, light coffee, and traces of vanilla.

I'm impressed with the taste after the fairly weak smell. Light chocolate and coffee notes, slight vanilla, and some pleasant bitterness, all led by huge roasty malt characters. It has a medium mouthfeel in regards to stouts.

My first Oatmeal Stout and an enjoyable beer, but I feel like this is not a good first example of the style.

I poured this nice beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer poured a really dark brew with a very nice tan head. The smell was like dark roasted (nearly burnt) grains. The beer did not taste burnt however. The beer tasted nice and toasty with big coffee or cappuccino taste to it. The beer had good lacing and had a bit of a dry finish. I don;t like that but I would buy this beer again.

Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.

I hope that bear can brew a good beer... It pours a dark garnet-tinged black-brown topped by a finger of relatively short-lived dirty tan foam. The nose comprises chocolate syrup, roasted malts, toasted oats, and a small bit o' molasses. The taste holds notes of cocoa powder, light coffee, very light molasses, and light roasted malts. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly smooth feel. Overall, a pretty nice oatmeal stout, one that doesn't try to do too much with the chocolate (which often ends in disappointment, frankly). Not bad at all.
