COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our tribute to the oil industry workers of our great state. A bold taste of complex roasted malts with just the right amount of hops to augment the balance of our newest member of the family.

Medium brown, thick head. Not much nose but a rich, nourishing malty stout with mellow hop bitterness and balanced roast/chocolate taste.

Ratman197 (10220) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Bomber poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of cocoa, roastiness and light cola. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roastiness and cocoa with a smooth lingering cocoa finish.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
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.

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.

AmEricanbrew (6014) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 24, 2009
Dark brown with a tan head. Rich chocolate aroma with tart oatmeal and deep roasted malts. Rich dark chocolate flavor with bitter blackened malts to balance. Nice stout. Draft@ Humpys.

maxwelldeux (3806) - Everett, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2014
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.

SHIG (3667) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - NOV 9, 2012
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.

DarkElf (3035) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 6, 2008
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.

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.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 25, 2009
On tap. Dark brown almost black with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and a light smokiness. Sweet flavor that has a light bitterness from the roasted grain and a very light hop bitterness. Creamy mouth feel, full body and an average carbonation that helps lighten the body a bit. This is a solid Stout that goes down smooth and is very drinkable.
