Growler. Hazy dark brown with a small spotty tan head. Aroma of black malt, fruity, chocolate, coffee and some alcohol. Flavor of bitter roasted coffee, dark malt and caramel. Medium to full body with a smooth mouth feel. Solid oatmeal stout, smooth and enjoyable.

23-Jan-08 (Draft: Homer Brewing Co. in Homer, AK) Of the beers I’ve tried from Homer Brewing, which is just about all of them, Odyssey is the one I like the best. It’s very toasty and moderately roasty, and the dusty chocolate and oatmeal are also prominent features. Lots of oatmeal in the aromatic nose, but less chocolate than expected given the flavor. 12% of the grain bill is oatmeal, and the resulting medium-full body gives a nice mouthfeel without being too heavy. Light-medium in carbonation and a dry, dusty finish makes for a smooth drinking beer. Dark-brown in color with a ruddy accent at the edges. Half-inch of tan head settles to a wispy film and wide ring. Overall, a simple, though solid and well-made oatmeal stout.

The Homer Brewing company is one of my favorite local breweries. Almost every single beer it produces is excellent.
Put simply, this is one of the best oatmeal stout’s available anywhere.

Homer Brewery really needs to work on heads in its beer. This thing had bubbles bigger than my bath-soap that popped before I even got to measure them with my meter stick. Ah well.
This thing didn’t taste like an Oatmeal Stout at all, methinks. It was very malty with only a slight touch of sweetness, and had practically no finish. My notes say "more like a Pale Ale."
As this is my 5th and cetainly final Homer Brewery rating, I must say that if you do find yourself in Homer Alaska somehow, check out the brewery, because its cool, but their merch is waaaaaaay overpriced.

On tap at Humpy's. Black beer with a lasting foam ring around the glass. Sweet malt nose. Light body with a traditional oatmeal feel to it. Sweet malt profile that became a more white sugar sweetness as it warmed. Maple syrup and some carmel coffee notes.
