Appearance: Pours a brownish black color.

Overall: It has the aroma of cream, oatmeal, and roasted malt. This beer has a subtle coffee, roasty, bitter cocoa taste with a dry finish. A very smooth and good oatmeal stout.

Bottle share, thanks to Jeremy. And a tick for WV. Black, but kind of flat, toasty but dull. Dry finish, sort of metallic. Must be made out of coal...

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. This beer pours a brownish black color with a small off-white head. The aroma has a strong wood smell that I am not a fan of. The flavor is slightly bitter with a slight aftertaste. I am not a big fan of this.

Canned 05/06/15

Pours a dark black body but small head. Flavor is weak charcoal, very watery and the feel is a little bit chalky. Totally not what i expect from an oatmeal stout.

a decent and unique oatmeal stout, but a step behind the best examples of the style. the weird thing is in the look, where all the white chunky yeast particles chug out of the bottle and float around the in otherwise oils black beer with a short and short lived just off white head. it smells like vanilla extract, crazy how forward and obviously identifiable that element is, I don't think there is vanilla in here, but man can you smell it. the flavor is nice, a little thin in body and a little sweet, but you taste the oats and the black malt working together real well, and I surprisingly also taste some cool yeast, sort of English and biscuity, rich and interesting. nice bitter roast, no vanilla really at all but a little molasses sweetness, even licorice notes as it finishes. well made I think, but could use a little refinement. I think the sweetness is a little high and the body is a little light for the style, but its taste beer and if I had more than one I would have happily consumed two or three bottles in a sitting. I liked these guys better than their rating almost across the board.

Appearance - The beer is a murky brown color with a slight head.

Smell - The nose is not malt forward, but is more like an pilsner.

Taste - This is a stout in name only. The initial taste is grassy and grainy, lacking any quality of smoothness or malts. The finish is dry with a hint of very dry chocolate.

Mouthfeel - If the beer had an appropriate taste profile, I might say it goes down smooth.

Overall - I rarely do not finish a beer, but I struggled with this one. Clearly, I am not the only one that could not figure out this "stout".

Looks like a stout. Doesn't taste like a stout. The label says it is on the light side. That being said, I still expected it to taste "stoutier". Tasted sort of like if Budweiser made a light stout. Not recommended.

Buckeyeboy provided the elusive WV tick! Thanks buddy! Standard black with good dark brown foamy head... no real lacing, looks a little thin on the pour. Dark malt with a little char in the nose, not enough sweetness to balance IMO. Flavor mirrors the aroma and could again use a little more malty sweetness to help tie things together... Lighter than expected body too unfortunately.. Still a decent beer, just could use a little dialing down.
