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.

DarkElf (3051) - 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.

5000 (6599) - 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 donít 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, donít think of this as a Sweet Stout when drinking this one.

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.

This one was described as an oatmeal stout. Black body, mocha cream head. Lovely aromas of oatmeal, roasted barley, and coffee intermingling above the glass. Smooth roasty body with healthy coffee notes, and a creamy mouthfeel. A touch of black patent on the finish.

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.

djd07 (10018) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with medium beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is dark chocolate and roast. Medium mouth, very sweet, chocolate malt, roast, lingering dry finish, good.

Ernest (7321) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 14, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2015 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, unsweetened chocolate, husks), with a hint of vanilla. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Simple with kinda rough malt, and a bit too tart for my tastes too. Ok but fairly clunky.
