This is the most complete oatmeal stout I have ever had! As soon as you pour this beer into a glass it feels your nostrils will wonderful chocolate and coffee notes. These are the exact flavors that attack your taste buds. I dare you to find a better oatmeal stout... It won't happen!

Very chocolate intense. Very smooth. Very little bitter. An almost perfect stout.

A big light brown head takes its time to settle into a pretty nice lacing above a clear ( I think ) super dark brown to black colored beer.

Super dark roasted malts with the aroma of them being burnt harbor some bakers chocolate, coffee, and oatmeal aspects.

Rich dark roasted malts with unsweetened chocolate, light roasted coffee, and a thickness of oatmeal taste.

A creamy yet lightly dry aftertaste with some of the dark roasted malt characteristics hanging around on this full bodied creamy thick stout.

A very well done oatmeal stout, not to much chocolate or coffee coming through, yet it has that full roasted malt body that makes you want to take another drink and another, etc.

Looks - pours nice black, carbonated body with a light brown head that leaves some lacing on the glass.
Smell - light sent of malt, coffee, with a hint of chocolate.
Mouth feel - very smooth w/ a slightly sharp taste of the roasted malt and coffee that lingers on the palette.

This is a very satisfying beer that's good with food or very drinkable by itself - not an overpowering stout. A fine beer from Marble Brewing of Albuquerque, NM.

Pours dark, dark brown, just about black, with a nice mocha head and decent lacing. A deep roasty aroma paired with very light sugars from the oats, slight but enough to let you know this is an oatmeal stout rather than american stout; coffee and cream, bakers chocolate, roasted barley, and sugars. Flavor starts of a roasty with some sugars from the oats, but then midstreams everything picks up and the flavor kinda erupts, big coffee that grows in its burntness as it develops, bakers chocolate that also continues to develop into the finish, and all with the sugars from the oats to add some balance to everything. A smooth medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, Marble with a fantastic beer here. One of the best stouts I have tried.

Out of a bomber bottle this beer was an opaque black color with three full fingers worth of tan head. The retention was excellent as a thin cap that left thick band after band of lacing all the way down my glass. The aroma was rich and earthy, a blend of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, milk chocolate and a hint of molasses. The flavors were delicious! I tasted lots of chocolate, roasted malt, hints of earth/wet soil, mocha coffee and sweet malt. The bitterness that appeared towards the end balanced the sweet elements well and the flavor of milk chocolate lingered on my tongue after the finish. The mouthfeel was smooth and a bit frothy, the body full and the carbonation perfect. An outstanding version of this style and one of the best I’ve had in a long time. Go Nuevo Mexico!

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #38 (Mar 2010):

Towering, robust brown head. Yeah ... this beauty is black through and through. Aroma burst with burnt caramel, freshly ground coffee and cocoa powder. Creamy, dreamy medium body; semi-silky. The taste buds have a lot to cover here, from a slight fruity yeast tone and hop bitterness, to charred grain and burnt sugar flavors. Hints of choco- late cake batter, burnt biscuits and an iced coffee show off the complexity here. The sweetness that builds up is a perfect balance against the roasted grain; hint of dark fruit within the roasty finish.

How much more sessionable can a beer get? Right to style without any attribute jump- ing up too high--a prime example for Oatmeal Stouts.
