Oakes (12373) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 23, 2002
Very dark burgundy; thin but creamy-looking head; fruity aroma (cherry, raisin) w/ touch of roast. The oatmeal is immediately evident in the creamy body, though a soft carbonation also contributes. Oaty, fruity (cherry), lightly roasty flavour. Fairly sweet, a little bit fatty in the finish (typical oatmeal characteristic). Very drinkable - a cross between an old-school porter and an oatmeal stout.
