UPDATED: MAR 30, 2012 A delicious oatmeal stout poured at Brown’s Taproom in Troy, NY. Smells slightly smoky with some roastiness. The smoky flavor is nice and is balanced against the smoothness of the oatmeal. Great chocolate flavors, oat flavors, and hints of coffee and nut. Finishes well.

Slight chocolate notes and a very slight smoked flavor which is very smooth due to the oatmeal, yet it tails off too quickly and doesn’t stay on the tongue very long.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark, dark brown with tints of ruby red on the edges and a large, fluffy, brown head. Smells sweet and roasted, hints of coffee and chocolate are present. Tastes roasted and sweet, chocolate and oats, no real bitterness is present. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Brown’s Oatmeal Stout finishes sweet like an oatmeal stout should.

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown, not black, with a thin-moderate somewhat fizzy tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Very pleasant aroma of chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. The flavor falls back a bit from the aroma with predominantly roasted malt and only trace amounts of chocolate and coffee. A bit spritzy on the palate due to the carbonation, which is not at all what I would want in an oatmeal stout. Medium bodied.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Serious toffee, hazelnut and brown sugar. Serious molasses.
Deep dark brown, almost black. Minor head.
Roasted chocolate and coffee. Mocha and nutty flavors. Stone fruit sugars for balance. Touch of boozy Bourbon alcohol at the end.
Smooth and oily. Ashy finish. Outstanding and roasted and sweetish too. Lovely.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Pours a dark black-brown color with a finger of brownish-head. The head has pretty good retention and laces nicely on the glass.
S- Lots of roasted carmel malts and some really nice sweetness from the oats. There is also some chocolate notes in the background with a tad of coffee.
T - Starts off with some nice toasted carmel malt and the oat flavor mixing nicely. There is also a touch of cocoa in the background. Through the middle the roasted flavors really come out and there is even a little bot of coffee flavor along with it. The finish is a mix of the roasted carmel malts and sweet oat flavor alongside some lingering roasted flavors.
M - A little bit more than medium bodied with light carbonation. Super smooth and silky. Almost slides through the mouth. But really watery at all.
D - Very drinkable. The flavors are really nice, and while there is sweetness, it is well balanced and never feels like too much. The mouthfeel is really fantastic.

Really just a great stout. 12oz bottle given to me by a friend with good connections up there in Troy. Deep brown color with nice sweet coffee and roasting aromas. Just a touch of chocolate. The taste does allow for a bit of oatmeal to come through making for a unique flavor. Balanced and delicious stout.
