UPDATED: MAR 19, 2004 Sampler, from 2001 notes. Pretty decent. I gave it points for also smelling like a creamy oatmeal stout, on top of a Guinness-y head. Nice and malty, meaning little hop activity going on.

On tap @ Beaver St. Almost black in color with almost no head. Roasted malt, coffee, and licorice on the nose. Okay chocolate and cocoa. Slightly watery. Flavor is slightly bitter and very much roasted malt forward. Some vanilla, burnt sugar, and seltzer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
@ beaver street brewery in a glass, nice black coloured stout with foamy white and lacing head. Smell: roasted malts, some coffee, drops. Taste: nice balance between roasted malts and the bitterness. Very nice stout! But I don’t understand the naming of ’sweet stout’ because it isn’t sweet at all. Congrats!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served in a pint glass at the Beaver Street brewpub.
Deep, near black color; clear with dark brown highlights at the edges and a modest but durable tan head. Nice lacing left behind.
Aroma: Mildly sweet dark roast malts with oatmeal and a hint of coffee.
Flavor: similar to nose, with good sweet/bitter balance despite a solid expresso note in the finish. Oats round out the flavor and add some nice balance. Fnish has a nice lingering roasted grain and light coffee flavor.
M: Medium carbonation Clean and dry finish.
O: a very fine, somewhat Irish style Oatmeal stout.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A fairly strong oatmeal to the aroma, but a little acetyl/butter as well. This has a medium coffee flavor but I’m also getting a little funk as well. Not working for me.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint on tap. I think this is "Lumberyard’s" best beer. Opaque & black, it pours a moderate head that fades to nothing. It’s relatively viscous and has light lacing, but is adhesive. Aroma is great, toasted & burnt malts, a little sweet. Taste is very warm & toasty, just a tiny bit herbal and sweet. Long aftertaste, big bodied beer. I don’t know what the hell gelatinized oatmeal is, but it’s good!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Coffee dark chocolate leather soy aroma. Taste is similar but a tad oily and more towards sweet and soy. Finish has just enough dryness and roastiness to balance this beer’s sweet full body.Draft at beaver street. My go too brewery up in flag before I head to fbc. Very good stout.
