Boulder Beer Obovoid Oak-Aged Oatmeal Stout is similar in style to a Guinness, but better. Nice aromatics when first poured, but they dissipate quickly. Beautiful dark color with an effervescent creamy, tan head that settles into the liquid well. Slight roasty to the taste, but I didn’t get much of the oak-aged notes. Slight bitterness but mostly a dry chocolatey flavor. Boulder Beer Obovoid Oak-Aged Oatmeal Stout is a nice version of a classic style.

Aroma is dark fruit, chocolate and a hint of oatmeal smoothness. The flavor is dark fruit, chocolate, malts and a mix of acidity and smoothness in the finish. Interesting, although I prefer oatmeal stouts that are smoother, the acidity took away some of that.

Black, no light coming through. Nice two finger fluffy head. Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, oak. Medium/full body feel. Overall a really solid and balanced oak aged stout! Cheers!

Bomber bottle poured a clear dark brown hue w/ a mostly lasting creamy tan head and fair lacing. Heavy aroma of chocolate liquor, licorice, vanilla, and molasses. Initial flavor is a moderate sweet leading to a moderate bitter finish of long duration. Tastes are a dark roast, dark chocolate, vanilla, a subtle oak from the barrels, and brown sugar. Medium to full bodied, lively carbonation and a light alcohol dryness in the finish.

Deep mahogany with almost no head. The aroma has an interesting mixture of chocolate covered raisin, licorice, and bubblegum. It has a medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. The taste is sweet up front with a more roasted finish.
