UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 I have only encountered this brewer through beer festivals - but this time I managed to have my rating book with me. Sampled on draft at the State College beer festival this beer poured a dark black color with a medium sized frothy dark brown head. The aroma was sweet malts and hops. The body is very thick and creamy. The flavor is dry chocolate and burnt coffee. Far dryer than I was expecting in an oatmeal stout and a bit more dry than I care for.

kramer (5910) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2009
On tap, at brewery. Black body with some brown on the edges under a small creamy brown head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is heavy and thick with roasty goodness and chocolate with some sweet cream and coffee. The flavor is equally full, great coffee and roast, very smooth from the addition of the oats, just a little sweetness. Mouthfeel has a nice creamy texture but mostly due to the oats rather than the nitro I think, just a touch of fizz. Lengthy coffee and roast finish. I’ve been waiting for this beer to come back on for a long time now. It was worth the wait! I love it.

3fourths (9146) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Draught at the brewery. Very dark (almost pitch black) body, with a dark tan head with medium thickness to the lacing. Has a black, smoky oat and barley aroma, very rich in the nose, with motor oil smoke and husky toasted graints everywhere. Very impressive nose, resembling an imperial stout in aroma, contained in a lower gravity stout. Chewy, moderately thin (though maybe my palate was setup for imperial stout after the nose), but creamy and toasty with heavy oat and some dusty, dry barley malt flavors. Overall a very good stout, well made, and I think if this recipe were modified into an imperial oatmeal stout we could be talking about something really, really good.

very good oatmeal stout. rich, grainy, roasted malt flavor. /just delicous. I tried to sample much of Bullfrog’s offerings and this was one of the best they’ve got.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours rather black with tight, persistant tan head. the aroma is roasty with some prune, chocolate, and faint berries. The flavor has plenty of smooth oatiness and some berry hints with chocolate, faint espresso, and a little bit of cedar. The finish is a touch nutty. Pretty good.

Draft, Bullfrog Brewery. Pours a very dark, brownish-black color; light tan head with excellent retention and creamy lacing. Generous, smoked meat and chocoalte in the aroma; smoke and toasty grains. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: plenty of smoke (smoked meats, mildly charred) and dark chocolate; relaxed carbonation; creamy, roasted chocolate character; very sessionable, with a light perimeter of citrus mid-palate. Medium, smoke and charred malts in the finish.
