Not too heavy. A bit like Guinness but with more flavor.

Very good stout. Solid flavor. Has smooth sweet flavor at start with hints of cocoa and finishes with more bitter flavor with coffee at the end. Very enjoyable, very well balanced. Also had a VERY dark and thick pour.

Wonderful sweet, chocolate, almost bourbon smell. Somewhat crisp smokey taste for Oatmeal Stout, but well balanced.

as I tasted my friend's on my second visit after having tried my own on the first day - verified how different beers can taste to you depending upon other consumption. At first I sort of liked it and the second time I loved it, so I will temper my review to the mid-point. Black as midnight, this beer offers a thin, but appealing mocha head that diminishes quickly but never entirely. Lacing is negligible - or quick lasting at best - but present. On the nose, it is a bit piney for the style, but toasted oats and whispy cereal/grainy notes are certainly enticing at the same time. On the first taste, I found this beer to taste a bit piney and drying for the style, yet on my second try I was more able to discern the French toast/mocha sweetness that comes first and isn't completely dried out by the American-hoppiness of this interpretation of the oatmeal stout style. On the tongue, it was creamy, though a bit light bodied (somewhat medium) than imagined with moderate carbonation. Grade: A-

Oh yes. Very very tasty. Smoky, caramel, and did I mention smokey and caramel? Very flavorful, but with a thin body that won't weigh you down. Packs a respectful punch at 7.5%, but not boozey at all, like some imperial stouts can be. 4.5 stars!

Heavy carmel, smokey flavor - like a stout should taste.
