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.

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.

(Bottle). Aroma is mainly chocolate. Black body, thin tan head. Flavor is chocolate and roastiness. Body a bit thin. Nice and smooth drinkability.

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.

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.

Bottle in trade from a forgotten source. Sorry and thanks!
Pours a mostly black color with a medium lived light tan head. Smell is smooth lightly roasted malt and creaminess. Taste is lightly roasty with a metallic and dry finish. Medium to light bodied but a bit of a watery flavor. Kind of a dull flavor and a touch tart, almost as if this isn’t very fresh. No idea of bottles age, however.

Slepkov (39) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2008
Pours a velvety liquid as black as espresso; a void from which nothing good could come. Or could it? A mocha head is almost guinness-like, and admirably persistent. The nose is rich if a little sour. Biscuits and coffee with a little off-soured-yeast. In the mouth a welcome tartness yields to ample, but not sweet maltiness, with strong rootbeer overtones. A well balanced mineral finish. Impressively crisp. Browns came back with Mr. Black!

Rastacouere (6154) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2008
Mostly opaque black pour. Minimal lace surrounds the light tan head. The first impression after smelling is of wax - it,s hard to find that appealing in a stout. Sweetish and bready example with a fair toasted malt background, but little roastiness. Powdery ashes tones are perceived, but it,s subtle and remains bready more than anything. Light-medium bodied. Dull malts and hopless.
