22. Pours black with a big billowy tan head and plenty of lace. Mild sweet chocolatey nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Great anise and chocolate combination on the mid palate. Long rich roasty sweet anise finish. Very enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Black, large foamy light beige head, nice lacing.   Powdery nose of bakers chocolate and burnt malts.   Similar tongue, a bit more sweet than the nose suggested, roasty, dark chocolate.   Seems more dry
and somewhat more burnt or at least has a charred aspect that most Sweet Stouts don’t have.   Not as "sweet" as other Sweet Stouts.   Instead, its a bit drier, roastier, with a more of a charred wood/campfire aspect.   Body
and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean finish, soft roasted malts and dark chocolate linger.   The charred wood/campfir were only fleeting.   Not quite what I think of when I drink a Sweet Stout, as it has no lactose like
sweetness.   As a Stout, its somewhat decent, and perhaps a bit bigger than your average stout.   Different, but enjoyable.   Big hint, don’t think of this as a Sweet Stout when drinking this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Definitely smells and tastes a bit sweet with what seems like a bit of lactose. Definitely roasty, but not too much of the roasting character. Ok, but nothing great.

Bottle: Poured a dark black brown with a thick creamy light brown head. Aroma is full on sweet chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is sweet dark chocolate, roasted malts, light hops that work well to balance the sweetness. Very nice to enjoy on International Stout Day 2012.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22-Jan-08 (Draft: Kassik’s Kenai Brew Stop in Nikiski, AK) After sampling five beers, it was well past the brewery’s closing time, yet Frank and Debara were more than happy to let me continue on and sample all their remaining beers. Next up was their Oatmeal Stout. This beer looks very similar to the porter: very dark brown and essentially opaque. The dark-tan head pours to half an inch, but holds a thin layer for several minutes, leaving a wide ring of lace on the glass. Mildly sweet and yeasty entry with a nice, roasty finish. Roasty nose seems a little yeasty and is medium-sweet. Medium-full body could use a bit more weight. Dry, dusty and chalky mouthfeel. Once again, they’ve brewed a solid beer with restrained sweetness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle received in trade from BeerKangaroo, thanks for the opportunity and a great trade!
Pours a solid dark brown/ black color with a huge khaki head that persists forever leaving a moderate amount of lace on the sides. Aromas of chocolate and roast with a decent amount of burnt caramel and earthy hop in there. A touch of oxidation in there, but that could be from the damaged cap upon shipping, and it really doesn’t detract much anyhow. The flavor is rich roasty and chocolate up front. Bits of caramel and dark dried fruits and a touch of earthen crusted hops round out the flavor nicely. Medium to thick body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a silky creamy smooth mouthfeel. Pretty damn good oatmeal stout right there in my glass, so glad I got to try this.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks, Terry Stovall, for bringing this from Anchorage, AK --- Opaque Black color, big 2" tan head that lasts and lasts, bands and swirls of lace. Taste is clean roasted malt that grows earthy and adds some dark chocolate in the palate before allowing a bit of hops to enter late in the finish. A spectacular stout, not overly sweet, no oily residue, satisfying to drink. High recommendations.
