Brownish color and medium tan head to this beer. Tastes of chocolate and oats. Smells of oatmeal. This beer does go down really smooth and has great flavor

very much an old school english style take on this style, despite it being made in america, its a throwback, and in this style, to me, that means a lightly acidic or tannic thing in with the grain, a warmer mash or strike temperature and some yeast character through it, not just the dark malts and the smooth rich oats, which are of course both here in high proportion. some might see the sharpness this has past the center as a flaw, but i see it as traditional, old worldy, and i like it, its textural not flavor complexity, which is cool the taste is pretty straight ahead, bitter roast tempered by earthy oats and protein, with subtle chocolate and coffee, but nothing twisty or turny about it. maybe a kiss of smoke and a little molasses sweetness. i think this is striking because its fresher than most, certainly than the imports, and its so robust while also being really drinkable. they did a nice job with this, and i think the little zizzle in the feel is on purpose, and it certainly aligns with old world examples of the style. well done. cool to have these guys in colorado right now...

Can nabbed at a beer store in Colorado during GABF week:

Crude chocolate, dark malts, subdued roast, and specialty chocolate malt blend in this balanced yet true-to-style Oatmeal stout.

Smooth but robust. Wet. Unrefreshing (to style).

I find no faults in taste or texture, but there is room for improvement (ramp up the roasted barley, make it a bit drier, add intricacy via charred sugars/burnt malts, coffee, or the like, etc.).

A competent and drinkable no-frills Oatmeal stout that nails the rudiments of the style but doesn't stand out compared to either traditional expressions or American masteries thereof. I don't know that I'd buy it over Samuel Smith's or Old Stockyard, but I'd definitely pick up a sixer at $11 or less.

It does tend a bit sweet, though.

I got a can of this off the single shelf from a Kroger just down the road from south metro ice. It poured an opaque dark with off white head that is not leaving much lace. The scent had faint roast, peat and chocolate. The taste had roast and coffee with a subtle sweetness at the front which turned slightly bitter at the end. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 16 oz. can into an El Catador Barrel-Aged glass.

A: Very dark brown and almost opaque. An aggressive pour from the can leads to a big three-finger foamy tan head with good retention. Almost nitro-like small bubble movement within the visible carbonation and the head.

S: Roasted malts, chocolate, tobacco, and vanilla. Some sweetness from the oatmeal, and a mild coffee as well. Solid enough nose, but nothing unexpected.

T: Semisweet chocolate and roasted malts. Coffee, vanilla, and roasted bitterness. Sweetness from the oatmeal which balances the roasty (and less hoppy) bitterness. Some drying tobacco and Skoal. More chocolate and roast bitterness in the hang – this still overall tends towards the sweet but is more balanced than a lot of oatmeal stouts.

M: The mouthfeel is a little thin, especially for an oatmeal stout that tastes this big. This might be my biggest complaint of this beer – it isn’t anything that you’d call watery, but it’s deficient here. There aren’t big alcohol flavors, but it seems a little warming going down, especially for a fairly tame ABV. I might have guessed this was double-digits, anyway. Low carbonation sensation, but as expected for style.

O: A nice smell and flavors. The alcohol presence and (maybe even more so) the body need some work. I don’t know if more oatmeal would give it the expected chewier mouthfeel or not. But it didn’t hold up to expectations there. Otherwise nicely executed.

Pours an opaque black with a thin tan head. The aroma is full of roast and chocolate notes. Nice full mouthfeel, with a big body to match. The flavor is dark and rich roasted notes, with a touch of coffee on the finish. A solid Oatmeal stout from a good brewery.

I'm a bit of a stout newb, but this sure is a tasty brew. Lots of coffee/chocolate notes with a bit of sour fruit in the background with a slight bitter finish.

Another pickup from my most recent sojourn to the rust belt boom town of Dayton, Ohio. Impressive brown head sits for several minutes above its near black body. Nose Nose is sweet milk and coffee and a backing of chocolate. Slightly soured oats also present. Looking good.

Definitely heavy on the oat and coffee flavors that signify the style, also with a moderate late sour note. Some balancing hop presence, maybe medicinal and pine that makes itself known while still being mostly buried. Not quite as smooth in texture as some oaties. This is a solid, flavorful drinking stout. If you are an oatmeal person, this should be on your list.

A: Pours a deep brown, in the glass it is black with a large medium tan head.

S: Rich creamy chocolate, with notes of vanilla and coffee. Some molasses and caramel.

T: Roasted malt, creamy with dark chocolate and coffee in the finish with a slight earthy lingering bitterness.

M: Medium in body, but the carbonation makes it feel a little lighter.

O: Overall tasty, it smells like it would taste more like a Imperial.. the flavor is somewhere between Oatmeal stout and Imperial. Not a bad brew, certainly a little more bold than your typical stout.

Nearly jet black pour, tan head, beautiful oatmeal stout. Aromas are dark chocolate, raisins, and black licorice.

Taste is on point - dark chocolate, stone fruit, black licorice, but the feel is creamy enough to keep reminding you as you sip this that you're drinking a really nice oatmeal stout.

A - Dark body, opaque, with a light tan head, and some small lacing.

S - Roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee, alcohol warmth.

T - Follows the nose, with molasses and honey notes, bread, chocolate, and a mildly bitter close.

M - A bit prickly in the carbonation, a bit to thin for my taste.

O - A solid stout, with great flavor and smell, a nice look, but perhaps a bit short on the heft. Still, quite delicious. A solid pick-up when a dark beer is the itch that needs a scratch.

Not bad at all . . . A decent oatmeal stout. Smooth and creamy with a nice roasty nutty touch. Sweet caramel addition with a touch carbonation that really improves the overall feel. Good beer

This beer is much better than most oatmeal stouts on the market, likely due to a higher original gravity; not overly complex or decadent by any means, but smooth and quite enjoyable with a robust flavor superior to its compatriots.

Pours deep brown to black in color. Not much head retention. Smells lightly roasted with notes of semi-sweet chocolate. Roasted malt flavor up front, followed again some hints of chocolate along with coffee, caramel, and light molasses. I feel like this is a pretty basic oatmeal stout. It could be bigger, it could be denser. I wouldn't call it bad, but it's average at best when compared to other oatmeal stouts that I've had the past couple of years.

Dark brown with red edges and a fluffy, moderate tan head.

All around light aromas of chocolate, prune, roasted malt, cola, and sour cream and cheddar potato chips. And no, I have not eaten them any time in the past 5 years, let alone within the time span I drank this beer.

Taste is dry, roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, with a nuttiness to help balance the bitterness, and a little raisin and molasses.

10 Ton is smooth and drinkable with a medium body, balancing between fizzy and frothy.

Poured from Warped Wing Can, standard Imperial Pint Glass. Kept in my basement to cool it off to about 60 degrees. I don't like to drink heavy beers ice cold, its just not the best way to enjoy these types of beers. Appearance: Nice dark caramel, ebony color; very thin non-existent head, no foam and very little lace.
Smell: Roast nutty aroma with sweetness much like Karo molasses syrup used by my grandpa when I was growing up.
Mouth feel: Nice smooth similar to a cool BLACK coffee in texture and body.
Taste: Very roasty and upfront coffee like taste, bitter with slight sweetness. I liked it as I do my coffee (black) and once again easy drinkable; gone before I knew it!
Overall: A very nice well-rounded stout. At first I thought "one would be enough" when first encountering the bitterness. The first time I had a craft oatmeal stout in about 17 years. My last was Engine House#9 Oatmeal Stout in Tacoma WA. I have drank a few Guinness, and Murphy's over those years, and as my tastes have centered more on IPAs and Lagers, this beer may just drag me back to enjoy a stout from time to time! Definitely found myself wanting more after it was finished, but sadly just had the one can, part of a mixed pack of beers.

16oz can from Kain05 (thanks man!). No identifiable canning date. Served in a goblet.

Pours black with a little more than one finger tan head. The foam dies down to a narrow ring around the edges, depositing a few fine swaths of lace where the head rested before dissipating.

Smells of cocoa, lactose, bittersweet roasted malts and a little caramel. Solid.

Taste follows the nose. Roasted malt, cocoa, weak coffee, brown sugar, rolled oats, earth and a hint of alcohol. This is smooth, roasty and easy to drink.

Creamy, smooth medium body with subtlety active carbonation. Finishes with notes of chocolate, roast and faint caramel sweetness.

I'd never even heard of Warped Wing Brewing until this arrived as an extra but 10 Ton is a damn fine oatmeal stout. I'll have to keep an eye on these guys to see if there is more from them that I should seek out.

Look - No head to speak of. Would be white if there. No lacing. Dark brown body.

Smell - Sweet coffee and chocolate. Slightly bitter.

Taste - Chocolate. Coffee. Nutty. Light bitterness.

Feel - Watery, not "10 ton". Little to no alcohol. Smooth.

Overall - Not exactly what the name entails but not horrible. One of the first warped wing beers I've had.

16 oz can: Stout glass. Dark as night in color. Not much of a head, but what did materialize was a 1/2" thick and beige in appearance. Allowing this to warm up in the nieghborhood of 50 degrees or so really brings out some of the subtle notes like oats and creamy malt. Molasses, semi sweet chocolate, and vanilla are the stars of this brew. Well balanced and not too sweet. The carbonation is on point. Overall, 10 ton is a nice change from all the burnt up Stouts that most breweries are pushing out. This on is sweet and creamy....well made. Well worth the coin!

16 ounce can. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells like chocolate, coffee, oats, and some roasted malt. I think the taste is pretty much like the aroma, but there's also some molasses and a bit of smokiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy with a good amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good oatmeal stout, I liked it more and more the longer I drank it. This was the first Warped Wing brew I've tried, and I'll make a point to try some more from now on! $9.99 a 4-pack.

I love Warped Wing's branding.

Nice looking beer. Nose has hints of molasses. Flavor brings much of the same with a decently thick body. Consistent tones. I wouldn't mind more, but what is there works nicely. I dig it. Not sure why the ratings on this one are lower.

I am doing an homage to the New England states today, via The CANQuest (tm) and plowing through some of the backlog in the hopes of digging out of the overwhelming mass.

From the CAN: Some of the most beautiful graphics that I have seen in a while! Wally Wood-esque. "Share a Pint Make a Friend"; "Calculated IBU: 30 [;] Calculated Color (SRM): 34 [;] Color description: Black with a tan head"; "The Industrial Revolution was in full swing. When a young-buck industrialist built The buckeye iron and Brass Works Foundry. A cathedral of of red brick, cast iron and stainless steel. Today, it's our brewery. And since you're reading this, it's official. You, parched friend, are a patriot. A foot soldier on the front line of history's newest revolution. The Craft Beer revolution. So, ready? Aim. Unholster a pint of 10 TON Oatmeal Stout. Creamy. With hints of coffee, chocolate and vanilla. And a faintly nutty finish that will leave you anything but. Charge!" [sic]

I Crack!ed the CAN open and CANmenced an inverted Glug! This created 10 Tons, no, two fingers, of dense, tan head with good retention. I would have put the color at Black/Opaque (SRM = 44), but their remarks make me wonder. Needless to say, it was very dark and I was not getting any light penetration. Nose smelled of coffee, dark chocolate, light charcoal smoke and caramel/toffee. Mmmm. Mouthfeel was medium-to-full, not quite creamy, but on the approach. The taste was roasty and smoky, not so bitter as to call it burnt, but it was in the neighborhood. I liked the way that the finish had an unexpected wash of sweetness and really smoothed out.

Not a lot of head out of the can, but a rich, almost sweet body that's rich with a lot of coffee overtones. This is a very drinkable stout, but rich enough to share with your friends.

With the high roast of stout abounding, balance is in order. Traditional British found such offset of ashy roast with the comfort of oats. It's the grain to offer smoothness, silk, and cream influence to absorb much of the charred brunt.

And Warped Wing brewers find much the same as the otherwise abrassive burnt flavor would have been an obvious extention from the nearly opaque numbness of color. While strong coffee, cocoa powder and grilled nut aromas evoke an intimidating masculinity, its initial taste is of burnt sugar, roasted cola and dark roast coffee.

With its ashy and charred texture and taste trampling across the middle palate, a creamy smoky chocolate taste transpires. Laced with caramel, cream, and carbonized sweetness, the campfire and roasted qualities of taste extend deeply into finish. Warming slowly, the earthy and fruity taste of licorice, root sweetness and cherrywood add complexity and roundness in the most charming of English tastes.

Though roasty-dry and semi-acrid, there's a creamy, vanilla-like and silky undertow of taste and texture that soothes the rougher edges of the otherwise smoldering ember abrasion. Semi-dry in finish, the stout closes with light powdery ash and deep espresso roasted taste and accompanying bitterness.
