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.

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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
