Pours a jet black color with a light tan head about a finger thick. Smells of chocolate, coffee, and a little malt. Taste is coffee, dark chocolate, tobacco. Slight bitterness and a little lingering coffee flavor. Medium body, a little on the thinner side. It's a nice autumn/winter beer, daily drinker with an ABV that won't kill you.

Black color,medium body and carbonation. Coffee and chocolate aroma. Taste is coffee,malt and cocoa which gives this a slight bitter dry finish. Not the best oatmeal stout but I would get this again

Pours a dark black body with a two finger tan head. Scents of coffee, cocoa, and caramel. Creamy and smooth. Drinkability is top shelf. Medium bodied maybe a bit thin but increases sessionability. Slick palate salts away after a couple seconds. A highly recommened terrific autumn and winter beer.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of coffee, some chocolate. Taste is the same, except the chocolate is more pronounced than in the aroma, light bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is decent, but nothing special.

I survived the solar eclipse today & didn't get arrested, either, so it's back to The Bottle Backlog at Chez Woody with an interlude of a GLBC horizontal. I already started it off with Blackout Stout so I am continuing with another of their stouts & then I will get on track.

From the bottle: "Dark and roasty yet light and smooth as a fresh coat of snow, our Oatmeal Stout will kick your cabin fever and inspire you to toss another log on the fire."

Well, I am clearly drinking this one out of season since there is NO way that I am lighting a fire. I am, however, Pop!ping the cap on this bottle & beginning a slow, gentle pour. Even at this laid-back, SoCal pace, I still got two fingers of dense, foamy, deep-tan/light-brown head that stood up nicely to the blanketing humidity. Color was Black/Opaque (SRM = 44), allowing ZERO light penetration. Nose was a pleasant combination of dark chocolate & black coffee. I feel as though I am picking up right where I left off! Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, not watery, but thin for the style & definitely thinner than their Blackout Stout. Taste was more like cocoa than chocolate & with a pronounced coffee-like bitterness that may not be for everyone. I like my coffee like my women - hot & black, as Moe used to say of me. For me, this was really good. I would certainly drink this over a Sweet/Milk Stout. Finish was dry & bitter, like both my humor & some of my exes.

I bought a bottle of this off the Binny's single shelf. It poured an opaque dark with ecru head that is not leaving much lace. The scent had hints of chocolate and peat. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to for a stout. There is a presence of chocolate, coffee and earth. The mouthfeel was medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall it's a solid stout.

The beer pours a nice dark black color with a tan head that dissipates quickly. The smell is pretty nice. It has a moderate oatmeal note and a light dark chocolate note as well.. The most interesting part of the smell is the roasted note. It's a bit light but adds something nice. The taste is good. It has a good oatmeal note that mixes well with a very light dark chocolate and light roast. The feel is decent. It has a light body but with a minimal of the creaminess normally associated with the style. Overall, this is a decent bordering good beer that is worth getting during the winter.
