On draft at the Brewpub. Pours pitch black body with small brown head. Aroma is some chocolate malt. Taste is roast and deliciousness, I wish I was in better shape at the time to try more of this sucker.

basewars (169) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 23, 2009
On tap. Pours dark black with thick head. The chocolate and oatmeal definitely show through. Nice full body. Still not quite as good as Samuel Smith’s, but very good.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2009
draft- this was appearently the beer to go to considering its award winning status, but I found it to be not good at all- very one dimensional in the way of harsh bitterness and dark mollasses- not much else going on- virtually no aroma.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2009
sampled at the brewpub. Almost black in color. Aroma has some chocolate, with some roast peeking in, some crystal/caramel malts. Taste is pretty simple- chocolate, a touch of roast, the silky oatmeal does come through a bit in the body as does the willamette hops- faint floral/citrus. Light to moderate body, with a light bittering finish. Clean and very drinkable.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Pours black with two finger tan head. Aroma is somewhat weak- mostly roasted malt and a bit of a sweet molasses smell. Flavor is roasty and almost smokey with lots of malt. Sweet residual sugars present int he form of caramel and dark chocolate. Not overly flavorful or hard hitting, but the flavors work in this combination. Palate is hideously thin for a stout, and leaves little in the form of an aftertaste. Quite drinkable, however. Would make a good session ale.

Brown’s Oatmeal Stout is a brownish black ale with a small light brown head. The aroma is sweet and soft: chocolate, molasses and oats. It is medium full bodied and smooth with a dry, almost gritty, finish. It has a very fresh flavor with good balance. Chocolate, caramel and oats are prominent in the taste, as they were in the aroma. It has a botanical bitterness that is polite in strength. A roasted flavor comes out as it warms. It’s a good stout.

pintsize (1042) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 2, 2008
5-20-08 bottle
Medium black pour with a good (although short lived) tan beige head and no lacing. Smell is roasted walnuts and malt with a hint of soy sauce in there too. Flavor is watery and crappy malt. Mouthfeel is not very enjoyable at all - thin and watery. Not the most appetizing beer for me.
