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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

I’m not a huge fan of oatmeal stouts, but I’ve never tried this one, and I love Big Sky’s Moose Drool, so I decided to give it a shot.
I still don’t like oatmeal stouts. They’ve got a specific bitterness I just don’t enjoy. This is still an enjoyable beer, and might be a fantastic representative of an oatmeal stout. I don’t 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. I’d like a bit thicker mouthfeel with a bit more sweetness. Is probably a bit less smoky tasting than most oatmeal stouts I’ve tried, but I think that’s a good thing. Mellow.

You know, I just don’t know what it is with these oatmeal stouts. I can’t 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.
