This is basically a solid oatmeal stout. It looks great, a deep silky color without much fading around the edges, nice brown frothy head. The smell and taste were a bit on the roasted/bitter side for an oatmeal stout, but not off-putting, kind of added to the charm. this definitely had some good sweet oat flavor too it though, nothing outstanding but quite good. I was suprised at the lack of creaminess in the mouthfeel, but it still went down well. Not something for all night, but pretty good for one or two.

Dark, creamy pour. A real smoothie with pronounced chocolate smell and chocolate/toffee taste. Stays in the mouth long after the swallow. Needs a touch more roastedness in the malt department for me, but a nice Oatmeal nevertheless.

A: Poured into a mug, very dark brown/black with a tan head.

S: Smells of deep roasted coffee, maybe some chocolate too, also a warming aroma.

T: Starts off with a slightly smooth silky-ness then goes right into some roasted coffee and dark chocolate along with some roasted malts. Finishes a little bitter, not a lot, just enough to compliment the roasted malts.

M: Medium bodied, not as heavy as most stouts tend to be, with a little smoothness to it.

D: Very drinkable, with the body being a little thinner than most stouts and the flavors being non-offensive but still fairly robust, it makes drinking many of these very easy to do, sometimes unintentionally so. I drink this quite often, it is a favorite go-to beer of mine.

Light slightly roast malt aroma. Very fizzy, extremely big head that settles so slow that it made it difficult to pour much in order to drink. Dark brown to black with red hues. Clear. Straight stout malt flavor with softening qualities of the oats. Mildly dry and same for length of finish. Fullness from carbonation, otherwise medium Fairly straight oatmeal stout, not very complex but enjoyable in a simple way.

Picked up a single of this last time I went through Duluth

A: Wow, probably the darkest beer I've ever had-completely ink black, no light sneaking through this one, tawny head.

S: Sweet oats and roasted malts

T: Definately one of the more interesting oatmeal stouts out there-I can actually taste the oatmeal. Starts off with a coffee roasted bitterness that gives way to sharp oats flavors

M: Starts off very sharp due to bitterness then becomes creamy and palate coating.

D: Very interesting brew, I could definately down a few of these.

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours a very dark brown, appearing opaque black in the glass, with a thin patchy brown head leaving light lacing. Nice aroma of chocolate, vanilla and mild dark toasted malt. Flavor is dark toasted malt, light vanilla and chocolate, hints of char, smooth. Medium body with mild creaminess. The oatmeal body in this stout is not heavy, but noticeable, adding a smooth creaminess to the feel and taste. Nicely melded stout flavors. Flavor drops off a bit in the finish. Somewhat subdued, but tasty.

A - Pours a very dark brown/black with foamy 1" white head which dissipates fairly quickly to a thin layer.

S - Roasted malts, chocolate, hint of minerals

T - Coffee, roasted grains, chocolate, barley. Well balanced flavor.

M - Smooth, but a bit lighter and not as creamy as I would expect from the oatmeal.

D - A good, drinkable, brew that I'd come back to again.
