COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smooth and creamy best describes this beer. Black malt creates the intense color while adding a touch of roasted flavor. A large amount of rolled oats enhances the creaminess created by using nitrogen instead of carbon dioxide for the bubbles. Hold a normal stout up to the light and it’s hard to see through. Hold this stout up to the light and the room turns dark!

Location: Tap at the Brew Pub , 8/7/09

Overall Impression: I liked this one a bit more then the Bourbon version. I found the Oatmeal to be lacking (hardly detectable) mostly, I just got roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee. Anyway, it was a touch thin, and a not overwhelmingly good, but a nice stout, my second favorite beer of the visit (losing by a nose to the Brown).

SamGamgee (2451) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - FEB 17, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Black with a creamy tan head that leaves some lace. Coffee, roast, and lightly sweet dark chocolate aroma. The flavor has a light roasty edge, low bitterness, low hops, and just a light sweetness. Smooth due to the good carbonation level, and probably the oats, but too thin for a 6.2% oatmeal stout. Balanced and smooth, but lacking and great or interesting flavors. The best of the bunch overall, though not as great for the style as the light lager.

Nitro pour at the brewpub. Very mild, clean, light roast, with nice oatmeal definition. Drinkable and smooth. A bit vegetal.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2008
Tap at the brewpub. Dark brown with a thick brown nitro head. Rich soft chocolatey aroma. Some light vanilla and cocoa as well as a nice earthy character. Flavour is soft and sweet with a light berryish fruitiness. Lingering blackberry, toasted grain and a light chocolatey character. Very soft and smooth mouthfeel helped along no doubt by the nitro and oatiness. A very tasty oatmeal stout.
