Nice coffe roast smell with a little chocolate. Smooth beer, except for a slightly bitter finish.

22oz bomber poured into red solo cups as the good times rolled at the pavilion. Black body with a half-finger of tan head. Not much lacing, but hey, it’s a solo cup. Aroma is roasted malt, cocoa powder, and a touch of coffee - on the simple side. Flavors are similar, roasty malt sweetness leads through some cocoa and coffee bitterness. Medium body, thin texture, especially for an oatmeal stout, medium carbonation, a touch high for the style, dry finish.

Poured from a bomber to a nonic glass

L: Black with light brown head. Was VERY fizzy for me; it took a while to pour as the giant head kept sticking around. Eventually settled into a nice foam.

S: Lots of coffee and chocolate with earthy fruit notes at the end from the hops. No oatmeal smell.

T: this tasted a little thin, but nice. Coffee with some earthy hops at the end with a bit of toffee, but otherwise. Not especially sweet, as I'd expect from this style. It felt more like an Irish Stout. Decided burnt taste at the end. No oatmeal flavour.

M: Sparkly, but thin. It was clean-feeling, but it lacked that smoothness you'd normally get from an Oatmeal Stout. I'd prefer a less-carbonated version.

O: Not bad, but nothing to write home about. I'd love to try it on tap, though; I think some of the things that are missing would come out more from a drought pour. But I won't seek out another bottle.

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.

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.

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

The pour was a murky dark black with a small (less than 1 finger) foamy light brown head that diminished in a minute or so and had fair streaky lacing.

The aroma was very mild of a roasted cereal malt and a doughy leathery yeast with notes of chocolate, coffee and flaked oats.

The taste was lightly sweet and mildly malty with a hint of chocolate and a nice creamy oat taste from the start, with the finish being lightly bitter and mildly roasty with a bit of coffee at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time following the swallow, with a mild smooth coffee flavor that was left behind to linger for just a short while longer.

Mouthfeel was a just bit above medium in body with a smooth watery texture and a soft carbonation.

Overall this was a light thin Stout with a decent roasty taste and a good drinkability...
