Notes / Commercial Description:
It's a bold, smooth-bodied concoction that oozes dark-roasted coffee aromas and flavors of espresso and semi-sweet chocolate. We round out these heady pleasures with a dose of flaked oatmeal for a creamy body and a semi-dry finish. Unforgettable.

Poured from a bottle into a tumbler pint, the beer is an extremely dark, blood-red and ruby coloring with a thin, spaced bubble, light brown head that coats the glass. Nose of milk chocolate and bitter dark chocolate, with a touch of bitter dark coffee. Creamy smooth body, with flavors of dark roasted coffee, bittersweet cocoa nibs, and a good roasted feel. The beer has roast coffee and dark chocolate in the aftertaste, with a smooth initial finish, and a slight linger to the sweet characteristics. Tasty stout.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass.

Pours black with a small, tan head. Seems to have low carbonation. A few spots of lacing exist.

Aroma is a mix of oats, coffee, and chocolate, but coffee seems to be dominant. No hop presence detected in the aroma. Fairly straightforward.

Creamy oats, and chocolate are the first tastes I get, then comes in a dry, roasty, coffee flavor with a little bit of bitterness, probably from both hops and the roasted grains. A little heavy on the roast, and not enough focus on the oats, but pleasant however.

A little too light in terms of body and tad high on carbonation. Very drinkable however. Creamy at times and dry at others.

Decent oatmeal stout, but some improvements could be made in my opinion (see above comments). Did enjoy and always appreciate a beer thats low in alcohol that has flavor.

Pours black with some reddish hues around the sides. Fine tan head that leaves quickly.

Nose has slight hints of chocolate and roasted grains. Some coffee notes to speak of as well.

Taste full of roasted malts and an overall roasted character. More bittersweet chocolate and some hints of caramel. Dry but less body than I was hoping for. Some noble bitterness in the background.

Overall this was a tasty beer to have on tap but I wouldn't go running out the door to pick up a 6 pack. More body and mouthfeel are my only complaints.

This poured out as a deep brownish black color with a decent brown colored head that faded away rapidly. The smell of the beer is rich with burnt roasted aromas giving a light impression of chocolate on the nose. The taste of the beer is heavily roasted as well, there doesn't seem to be much in the way of transition from start to finish though. It's mouthfeel could have been a bit thicker. Overall this beer was decent in my opinion, I wouldn't turn it down if it was offered to me.
