Bottle - this was my first oatmeal stout of any kind, so take this for what it is worth. Excellent frothy head that lasted until the end of the beer. Excellent mouthfeel, very refreshing.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle poured in English pint - This beer pours a completely opaque brown with a frothy brown head. It looks delicious! It has the expected oatmeal aroma but nothing particularly adventerous there. It has a good oatmeally and roasted barley taste a with definite coffee base. It has a good lingering aftertaste that is warming and pleasant. There is no hint of the metallic aroma or taste that some oatmeal stouts have.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a rich, appetizing sable-brown with a thick tan head that persists for a bit. Aroma is very inviting, smoky and stouty with a hint of molasses. Texture is not as rich as I expected, but the flavor is delicious and smoky with hints of coffee and brown sugar, and a nice bitter hoppy nip in the finish. I am fond of oatmeal stouts, and if this is not the best one I have ever tried it is still a winner.

Subtle Aroma, almost too subtle. Dark black color with a little bit of light able to shine through. Great subtle flavor. Very pleasing to the palate with smooth beginning and finish. Overall a great beer that tasted great all the way through.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep brown/black with light brown head. Medium-to-strong aromas of molasses, maple syrup and oatmeal. Oily on palate; thick viscosity with flavors of oatmeal, roasted nuts and maple. Light hops with a slightly sour finish. Delicious-great for a cold night. Would also make a good beer float.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2003 Quite dry - with plenty of chocolate in the aroma and flavor. Mild roastiness. Moderate body, not heavy but definitely not empty, nicely smooth. Moderate coffee presence. Perhaps even some smokiness in the finish? A very nice stout.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark with a short lasting tan head. Hop character is noticeable with aromas of coffee, vanilla and bittersweet chocolate. Bitterness strikes first followed by smooth roasted malts, nice palate and penetrating roasted aftertaste

Bottle from 14-0. Dark brown black color and thick appropriate body. Smoky earthen nose. Very smooth full mouthfeel. Great balance of a bit of oatmeal and coffee overtones. Roasted chocolate in there too. Great but not perfect for the style.
