(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.

Bottle thanks to some fine trader that I canít remember (I think its moejuck or Puddintane). Dark, blackish pour with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet and milky with some roasty and chocolate notes detectable. Flavor is milky/creamy, chocolatey, and smooth. Some sugar and cream mixed with a bit of chocolate and coffee. A nice, sessionable stout that was pretty good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the bottle this pours a thick dark brown topped by a one-fingered brown head. The aroma has bitter roasted malts with a splash of bittersweet chocolate and some soft nuts. Fairly smooth drinking, it tastes pretty much as it smells, the bitterness increating slightly towards the finish. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. bottle. Aroma of faintly milky chocolate, creamy dark toffee and deeply roasted malts. Dark brown-black color with a fine, subsiding head. Roasty, bittersweet malt flavors dominate, with a blend of coffee, lightly charred grains, cocoa, a very light dried fruit character and a gently spicy hop character towards the drying, tangy finish. Thin and smooth on the palate with a medium body. Highly drinkable for the style. Surprising that this is labeled a Winter seasonal.
