Chocolatey brown-black with a very active carbonation leaving tons of head.

Hints of metallic oat and milk chocolate, some dry cocoa, roast malt, and milk.

Wow. This tastes like blood. Oatmeal and blood.

Feel is irrelevant at this point, but creamy and highly carbonated.

Overall, one of the worst tasting stouts ever. As I sip it more the blood is less intense and I get more roasted malts but there's still a sour metallic element to it that makes me want to pour it down the drain. This beer is over.

I tried a bottle of this at my neighbors house it's from a variety pack that he brought back from Wisconsin. It poured a nearly opaque black with no head and no lace. The scent had roast. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink for a stout. There was coffee and touch for sweetness. The Mouthfeel was lighter in body with smooth carbonation. Overall it's decent.

Poured a black hue of sorts into my clear 12 oz Kahlúa cup. Smells of espresso, sticky rice and wet soil are all evident. Taste is very subtle of espresso and oatmeal. Feel is quite light about the same as a hot cup of joe (drink it cold though) Over all was a free beer from a rep along with an Irish one and a porter..... of all of them this is the most noteworthy and likely to be revisited at some point. Cheers!

Dark brown appearance, real close to black. Small bubbled beige head. Roasted aroma.

Taste a solid chocolate and coffee malt. Nice mouthfeel lacking bitterness. Kind of like a thinner, not quite as good, but still good Anderson Valley Oatmeal Stout.

On tap, review from notes. Has a dark brown appearance with a medium sized head. Smells of mostly roasted malt and oats. The taste follows closely with malts, oats, and some cocoa. Somewhat thin body and higher carbonation. Overall, a pretty standard Oatmeal Stout; could use more flavor intensity and a thicker feel.
