On draft at the brewery.

The beer is black with an inch of thick, beige head resembling wet sand. The aroma is of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. The flavor is very pleasant with more chocolate and cocoa nicely balanced with roasted malt. The body is thin, but not watery, making this a very drinkable brew. Surprisingly delicious. Recommended.

The Lost Spring Break 2012 Beer Reviews, Chapter 5

Black body, with small dark tan head. Small head may be the result of hotel glassware.

Big nose of deep roast coffee, undercurrent of chocolate, and a layer of oatmeal.

Taste reverses impact. Coffee is there, but chocolate is stronger. Good taste of oats along the way.

Smooth, rich, but not slick mouthfeel.

Overall, it lived up to its name.

Poured on-tap at the Cocoa Beach Brewery, the beer was served up in a pint glass. Pours a nice jet black with a thick ring of chocolate colored head. The beer has a thick, viscous appearance to it. Once it hits your mouth, you can't help but notice how surprisingly ligh and crisp it actually is, with a great smoothness to it. The brew also leaves a great lacing along the glass while you imbibe. The nose is heavy in coffee aromas, with a strong dose of smoke. Very inticing. The flavors are a very balanced blend of rich malt, dark chocolate, and coffee. The sweetness and bitterness play very well with each other. There is a hoppy and coffee bitter aftertaste, with a smooth, yet somehow dry, finish. Great beer!

"Not Just Some" Oatmeal Stout pours an opaque black with a thin brown head from a twenty two ounce bottle. The aroma is roasty. The flavors are nice, roasted malt, chocolate and coffee like flavors meld well. There is a bit of sweetness to the flavor. Overall quite enjoyable.

Well the name says it all. Its definity different. The pros: huge hop profile. Very bitter and the makes the strong coffee flavor dominate the taste profile. Very roasty and great flavor. Also very sessonable. Looks like and tastes like a big beer, but drinks easy. Cons: no head, little head retention. Body is on the thin side. Otherwise I love this beer.

Bomber poured into an efes tulip. Low head and retention. Minimal lacing. Almost opaque in color. Aroma includes coffee, light chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is mildly creamy, coffee and roast malt dominate. Touch of sweetness. No alcohol noted, no off putting flavors, pleasing mouthfeel and an overall solid stout.

After drinking the IPA, I wasn't too excited about this one. Fortunately, this was a little bit better.

It was black in color with a small tan head. There were a few specks of lace.

Roasted malt aroma, not too strong. Some coffee and chocolate.

Strong coffee taste, some chocolate.

Mildly bitter.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

The beer itself pours a dark chocolate brown color with a soft ruby tint in the corner of my pint glass. A small foamy tan head forms on the pour, fading to a small film and a ring that clings to the edges of the glass.

The aroma is pleasant, simple, and smooth. Milk and dark chocolate, flaked oats, and a little bit of coffee. The flavor generally follows the aroma, with a smooth and gentle flavor. Up front the flavor has a milk chocolatey sweetness and a dark chocolate bitterness that evolves over the sip. This bitterness blends with the oats to form the malt presence, develops a bit of coffee flavor, and finally turns to a soft, general earthy bitterness at the end. The finish is slightly bitter and has a bit of chocolate left.

This drinks a little bit bigger and thicker than the modest 4.7% ABV would indiciate. The carbonation has a smooth creaminess that is partially interrupted by more vigorous bubbles.

This unfortunately named, since I found it to be more of an average Oatmeal Stout than something truly out of the ordinary.

Got as an extra in a trade. Pours black with a Dark brown hue when held in the light, with a deep tan head. Smells chocolaty with hints of espresso as it warms. Flavor is fairly hoppy, nice roast and chocolate malt, dry finish with possibly some smoky elements. Above Average, but I like an Oatmeal stout to be an Oatmeal Stout.
