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.

Sampled at the Tucson fest. Black with a ring. A light roasted nose. Cream and chocolate flavors. Cool name, too. Very easy to drink. A hint of bittering hops. Nice.

Black with a thin head. Aroma is roasted malt and baking cookies. Flavor is bitter and sweet, and the sweetness is almost too much. Smooth mouthfeel. Good overall.
