I don't get it. Roasty and not all that different than other stouts I have had.

Had this in bottle. I was super excited to try this because of all the great reviews I've heard about it.

Holy jesus christ... "double chocolate, coffee, oatmeal stout"?! I don't think that's enough...let's try to cram some more crap into this beer! What a flavor overload, and not in a good way. This beer was just way overwhelming for me, and as usual, way over hyped by snob-, erm, beer advocates. This was the most bitter thing I've ever tasted in my life...the taste alone made me almost gag and puke, and subsequent smells from from the glass tickled my gag reflex.

It's just too much of everything in this beer. PASS.
