It's the first I am having this Texas Oatmeal Stout and I like it.

Look: Dark brown almost black with a one inch mocca head

Aroma: roasted malts, oats, a little bit of chocolate

Taste: There's roasted malts, chocolate, oatmeal/oats, figs maybe, and a lingering bitterness tasting like coffee/cocoa.

Feel: medium to full body

Am I the only that tastes coffee in this stout? With some cocoa taste as well. However, not a beer I would buy again. Did not expect this to be an oatmeal stout too.

Pour is jet black, tan head, aroma is dark chocolate, heavy char, some stone fruit.

The taste is really heavy on the dark chocolate and stone fruit - fig, black cherry, really nice. The feel isn't as creamy as you'd expect with an oatmeal stout, otherwise this is a really nice effort by Independence.

below average oatmeal stout. Malt was over roasted making it smoky and bitter.

Great beer! Very dark brown with creamy foam head. Malty flavors with wheat and, perhaps, cocoa mixed in. Incredibly smooth finish. Very thick and filling, but not too thick. Don't pass this one up!
