Scipio (650) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2013
Pours a black with a smooth, creamy looking, although a thinner tan head. Aroma contains lots of roasted malts along with some chocolate notes. Lighter overall, yet its appealing. The taste still has plenty of roasted malts and chocolate. Here we find some more, with a little bit of coffee and some nuts as well. Aftertaste is chocolate and malty. Light in body, with a creamy texture, with light carbonation. It is very smooth drinking this. This one is tasty and some easy drinking. I do with it was a little stronger.

Draft at Caliente in Pittsburgh. Nicely smooth with lots of bold flavor. Thick as a bowl of oatmeal with a ton of molasses on top. Somewhat arid on the finish.

This one poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of light roast, dark chocolate and nothing else. Flavor was similar, very dry and a bit bland, but clean.

Sampled on tap at the brewhouse. A nicely well crafted brew with a nutty flavor throughout and deep roasted malts. Nicely made brew.

Ughsmash (7006) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Tap. Poured near black with a creamy beige head. The ar oma picked up semi-sweet black and chocolate malts with a touch of vanilla and milk sugar accents. The flavor found sweeter chocolate and vanilla with dry hops around. . A touch buttery toward the end.. very solid for the style. Light-medium bodied with solid carbonation.. very drinkable.

Chudwick (1790) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Draft - pours dark brown with light brown head. Nose is peat an chocolate. Flavor adds roast and toast. Refreshing. Coffee aftertaste. Balanced taste wise but not pronounced.

From the 013 Summer Great Lakes brew samnpler I purchased at Remke/Biggs - This is a fine, dark sweet stout, but it seems to be lacking some prescence in its body... still, it’s a good beer, and I like it. However, it is not the best oatmeal stout... no Samwell Smith or Goose Island!

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 beers this beer poured a black color with a small foamy beige head that faded quickly and left minimal lacing. The aroma was dry, bitter, woody and a touch roasty. The flavor was dry, bitter, very woody, a touch sour and roasty. Long bitter and woody finish. Light to medium body. Blah.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 10, 2013
On tap at Milltown. Fine session stout. Definitely a ton of roasts in the nose, along with rich chocolate. Body is nicely substantive, thick and chewy as befits the style. Slightly dirty, dry finish also works for me. Tastes are far less single-minded than you’d expect for such a toasty beast, with some dark fruits, nice milky notes, and the like. Well made stuff.

Mittenator (1093) - Michigan, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Draft at Harrison Road House. Deep brown with a dark tan head. Huge smokey and malt aromas. I taste a little chocolate and coffee but it it completely dominated by the smokiness. Smooth mouthfeel.

Draft. Decent oatmeal stout, a bit thin, not too sweet, cocoa, smooth mouthfeel.
