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.

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!

22oz bottle

A- 22oz bottle purchased at Total Wine in Orlando. Pours a dark black color with a light tan head.

S- The aroma is roasted malt and sweet cocoa.

T- The taste like the aroma is dark roasted malts, milk chocolate and a touch of coffee as well. The taste is a little on the thin side.

M- The mouthfeel is between light and medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

O- Overall, this is a pretty average porter that I probably wouldn't purchase again.

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.

Enjoyed at the brewpub on Sept. 8, 2010 after hitting the beach.

Appearance: A very black/brown body with zero head because of the way he poured it. Not cool IMO.

Smell: Cocoa with a charcoal & bitter aspect to it.

Taste: Oatmeal with less charcoal than in the aroma. Some hops in the background which was nice and a brief appearance of cocoa. The taste is good but it doesn't linger.

Mouthfeel: A bit thin actually and not as full bodied as a stout should be though it is still pleasant enough.

Drinkability: I might have this again but it's not one of my favorites.

Overall: A decent effort that didn't make a lasting impression on me. I would have preferred a more fuller body and for the taste to last just a bit longer. Still, i think it's worthy of checking out.

Pours an opaque black with tons of dark brown head and large bubbles. The nose is extremely roasty with a pungent acetone note and some malt sweetness in the back. The flavor is similar, roasted and burnt with magic marker and some malt sweetness in back. The feel is light, thin in back and overly oily and slick and overly carbonated.

Found this at the Stillwater Grille in Fort Myers, Florida, this stout is black as night with a light tan ring of bubblage on top and fair lacing. The aroma delivers definite charcoal malt with some nutty herbal hop. Solid for sure. The first mouthful brings a somewhat watery charcoal but the flavor gets fairly intense though not very complex. It’s medium bodied but the feel is more aqueous than I would like in this style with a dry surface finish. Carbonation is very minimal but okay. A fair stout, perhaps a bit forgettable.

Brought back from Fla. by a buddy's father. Shared among 4 friends.
Aroma had a pleasant roasty character initially. It moved to a duller and less specific aroma and at the end seemed to hold a stale oxidized quality.
Poured with excessive head that was tamed with time. Very black.
Strong roast flavor that held burnt and then acrid quality. Finish also held ash flavors. Not pleasant. Flavor, feel nor body seemed to contain any oat quality.
Excessive carbonation covered a very thin body.
Ultimately not an enjoyable experience. Three of four were barely able to finish the 4 to 5 oz pour. One noted it as acceptable.
Thanks Chu.

I picked this one up at a Whole Foods in Orlando near Universal Studios.

A: Poured very anemically and without much head. The retention was mild and almost insignificant.

S: I got a mild bit of oat and coffee, but that was it. Was that really coffee, or just dark malt wizardry?

T: Same as the nose, but a bit worse... And quite thin. However, I've had much worse. Didn't get much of the slippery oat quality on the taste.

M: Like I stated before, this was pretty thin and very under-carbonated. No lacing really.

O: Not much love for this one on here, but I found it slightly worth of my sobriety and somewhat gulp able... yet ultimately forgettable.

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.

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 bomber picked up last month on the space coast. A see-through very dark brown with one finger of tan colored head, settles to a thin layer leaving a few wisps of lace on the glass. Smell: like dumping a bunch of chocolate chips in oatmeal, a little toasted grain, quite fruity, light earthiness. Taste: starts off with dark chocolate, a light astringent roastiness, then everything vanishes mid sip to a lasting earthy, green bitterness. Tasted good, but too fleeting. Light-medium bodied, carbonation is lowish but works ok. Finish is too thin, too bitter for the style. Beef up the grav, cut some of the hops and we'll meet again.

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.

"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.
