3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Boundary Bay Brewpub, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of oats, sweet chocolate and light coffee. Flavour of oatmeal and sweetened chocolate upfront. Medium-to-full bodied with a great balance of sweetness, cut down by the oatmeal. Excellent.

A deep dark all with a thin tan head. Light hop aroma with some roasted notes. Good body and carbonation. Hop bite in the front is followed by roasted malt flavor. Not as smooth as I expected in an oatmeal stout but still very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from growler into pint glass. Nice couple fingers light tan head. Dark color, but seems lighter than most stouts. Good lacing too.
Smells a bit grainy and light.
Taste is also grainy. More like a porter than a stout. Still rich in coffee and smokey malt.
Overall, nothing special, but a decent growler fill.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at St. Augustine, Vancouver
Black color. Aroma of roasted malt. Strange flavor, mixing roasted malts and phenols, with some residual sweetness, light liquorice and a feeling of dark candies.
Somehow chaotic, weird.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautifully calibrated oatmeal stout! This stout has a great dark color that is not translucent at all. It pours with a dark tan head. The aroma could be a bit more rich but it’s still nice. One of the better oatmeals I’ve had.

Sample at the brewpub in Bellingham. Dark and black with thin beige head. Aroma is deep and sweet with roasted malt, cereal, hops. Taste has chocolate, coffee, roast is mild but evident, hops are sharp and under played. Finish lingers well and is satisfying.
