Rich aroma with definite roasty chocolate tones. Beautiful crisp black pour with not much head (I did pour it a bit too cold). The Willamette sneaks through ever so slightly. A solid brew.

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.

12 ounce bottle from oliver’s . Pours black. little head, tan disappears leaves a little brussels lace. Great smokey tastes, nice malty taste. I taste a little carmel. I love this one. Probably ner the finest beer I have ever had, I am lucky to be so close to Browns.

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.

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.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Very dark brown body topped by a medium thick head with good lace left on the glass. Slightly roasty malt aroma with a subtle sweetness. Slighlty sweet and roasty malt flavor with a chocolate/coffee background and finish. Full bodied and smooth.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2008 Part of 24pack purchased from the Brewpub location in Troy. I drank this with the nephew of the owner. Pour is near black. A ton of flavor is present... most notably black coffee and tobacco. Not lacking much of anything..This was excellent. My favorite offering from Brown’s

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.

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.
