ABR 2007. A black pour with brown head. The nose was a little light for on oatmeal stout, but the body was pretty solid oatmeal with fain coffee hints.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle, via Sephiroth. Pours a clear black body under a fizzy one inch brown head that slowly faded leaving some heavy lacing. The nose is very chocolaty and roasty with some light chalkiness and coffee. The flavor is overly roasted to the point where itís just too chalky and ashy with some light coffee and milk chocolate on the finish. I donít get any oatmeal influence at all on either the flavor or body. Mouthfeel is somewhat thin with a watery texture and moderate soft fizzy carbonation. Quite a long lingering finish. Overalll, this was just a ho-hum middle of the road Stout at best.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured deep ruddy brown with an explosive cap of deep tan head (Iím talkiní an inch of liquid and 5.5" of head!). The aroma picked up lightly-roasted semi-sweet chocolates, toasted oatmeal, and more charred black malts.. dusty overall with a bit of detergent character that detracted a bit. The flavor had roasted sweeter chocolates and rolled oats with darker chocolates and coffee more toward the back.. coffee provided light-moderate bitterness, and carries through the short, but enjoyable finish. Just a tad shy of medium-bodied with a creamy middle on the palate and nice balance. This grew on me as the drink progressed.

(bottle) Pours black with a very small tan head. Aroma consists of burnt malt and some coffee. Taste is strong on roasted malt and slight coffee, with a nice smooth finish and lingering roast. Not too bad, a little thin.

[Bottle, thanks Guerde] Pours black with a small, dark tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, brown sugar and oats. Some malt and then quite a bit of coffee and some chocolate in the finish. Far too thin. Decent finish. The mouthfeel killed this beer for me.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aroma of roasted malt. A hint of oatmeal cerealness. Fairly faint aroma. Pours black with a creamy khaki head. Flavor was lightly roasted malt. A hint of creamy sweetness. A tiny bit of coffee and chocolate (I think Iím stretching here). Creamy with good carbonation. Finishes a tad watery. Nothing spectacular here.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Had this beer on 9/19/2006. Over carbonated, overflowed when I opened the bottle and could only get about an inch before it over foamed in the glass. Aroma is mild with a scent of roasted malt. Color is a deep black. Taste is dry and toasted. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a crisp roasted taste coming on and smooth feel. Finish come is with a bright roasted flavor that turns to a bitter burnt taste and ends with a dry bitterness. Even looking past the carbonation problem it still just isnít a good Oatmeal Stout.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A solid, enjoyable oatmeal stout. Average tan, creamy head. Aroma filled with chocolate, coffee and toasted malts. Notes of molasses and vanilla. Light hop aroma, though the hops come through in the flavor. That is moderately sweet and moderately bitter, but the bitterness lasts well into the finish. Medium body, creamy texture. Soft carbonation.

GToMW 2007. Standard dark brown or black color with dark tan head. Roasted oats aroma. Sweet flavor. Pretty thin. More like a sweet porter to me.
