On tap at the brew pub in Troy. Pours a nice black-brown with a very slight tan head - could’ve been the pour however. Aroma is strongly roasted malt, with some chocolate. Taste is upfront bitter chocolate, fading to a bitter coffee flavor. Not lacking in the hops department. As the other reviewer stated (only one other reviewer? - weird - go check out these beers, guys!) it is a little slight on the palate for an oatmeal stout, but its creamy and very drinkable.

A bit thin for an oaty, but this is some damn tasty beer. With some more body and a bit deeper flavor I could get behind the "world’s best " hype.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2007 In short: Insipid “dirty” black beer
How: Tap at brewpub. Jul 2006 (2.2/5). Re-sampled Dec 2007 (2.3/5)
The look: Brown-black body with a little tan ring of foam
In long: A little toasted malts but barely any roastiness. Thin body. A little creamy brown cake, some old dry peanut shells and some caramel roaming in the back. Not very flavourful and the little flavour it had felt “dirty”. Gold Medal at the 2004 San Diego World Beer Cup?!?!!! Hard to believe, unless what they served me in December 2007 is the actual gold-medal winning batch brewed in 2004.

On tap at the brewery. I don’t care for stouts, no surprises here. Smooth and dark.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 26, 2006
Draught sample at the brewpub. Touch of head doesn’t last long at all atop a translucent dark brown body....luscious chocolaty aroma, hints of rum and dark nutty liqueurs, a bit milky with light roast, overall excellently balanced....on the tongue, dry, thin and fairly flavorless, with a touch of sour cherry, dry wood chips, a bit of stale chocolate and some sour milk towards the finish....thin, undercarbonated, overattenuated, this was a disappointment given the overall strong quality of the beers on this occasion.

ABUSEDGOAT (2487) - California, USA - AUG 27, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2005 Tap @ brewpub: black body, roasted coffee dominates aroma. Hints of chocolate and oats. Flavor is exactly the same. Nothing really rewarding or interesting.

Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - JUN 27, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2008 Reviewed again based on the bottle. Pours nice and dark brown, small head, aroma is sweet and appealing. Flavor is nice and sweet, a bit bitter but nice, very creamy.

Black pour with light cream white head. Aroma is mildly roasty. Flavor is roasty, not too bitter.Nice oatmeal body. Standard oatmeal stout, but there is nothing wrong with that.
