Theydon_Bois (7935) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle on Amtrak Train 27 - The Empire Builder ( from Binnyís South Loop) - 04/11/12. Mid black, dark mahogony brown in the light with a thin tan head that soon clears to the edges. Roast malt nose, varnish, molasses, toffee, liqourice. Tastes of lightly roasted malts, touch of chocolate, light hops, toffee. Medium bodied with light spritzy carbonation. Average.

Pours dark but with little to no head retention. Not as much roasted character as I would like and very little mouthfeel, especially for an oatmeal stout. This beer left me very disappointed as the style they were trying to brew is one of my favorites when brewed correctly.

PapaSkeetSkeet (806) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Pours dark, slightly cloudy, cola brown, a bit light for a stout. Head is dusty light brown, but only a thin film... Aroma is sort of salty grain, some soy sauce and chewy tree. Body is medium-to-full. Flavor is bark, toasted malt, some leaf and tree with salty soy. Meh, not terrible, but not a delicious sweet stout that I would have loved.

Deep amber/soft brown. Toffee colored head. Chocolate malt on the nose. Sweet. Middle goes a little flat, carbonation takes away from the malt. Finish is surprisingly dry for the style. OK

Iím not a huge fan of oatmeal stouts, but Iíve never tried this one, and I love Big Skyís Moose Drool, so I decided to give it a shot. I still donít like oatmeal stouts. Theyíve got a specific bitterness I just donít enjoy. This is still an enjoyable beer, and might be a fantastic representative of an oatmeal stout. I donít know. Pours very dark brown. Oddly fizzy carbonation, for a quick-dissolving head (I expect a frothy head from a stout). Just a tiny bit thin. Iíd like a bit thicker mouthfeel with a bit more sweetness. Is probably a bit less smoky tasting than most oatmeal stouts Iíve tried, but I think thatís a good thing. Mellow.

You know, I just donít know what it is with these oatmeal stouts. I canít taste a lick of oatmeal in them unless I search for it. But then its there. It is a dark brown, opaque beer with a little tan head and a sharp alcohol and oat aroma. The flavor is lots of oats a little sugar and a fizzyness that tickles the sinuses. Cheers.

Dark reddish-brown. Nutty (almond, peanut butter), smokey and coffeish aroma. Somewhat thin, but with toasty notes. Only light nuttiness.

12oz bottle. Pours black with a medium-sized creamy beige head. Aroma is roasty with notes of chocolate. Flavor is roasted chocolate malt with creamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish. Pretty good.
