Appearance: Black.
Flavor: Creamy milk chocolate and some fruitiness. Not really that sweet, but not overly bitter either. About the sweetness level of a plain bowl of oatmeal.
Palate: Smooth and mellow.
Overall: Easy to drink. A decent Oatmeal Stout and better than most...

______________________________

9/25/2007: Black Angus Oatmeal Stout is near black in color, opaque, and has no head. The aroma is a wonderful blend of smoky charred malt and chocolate. The flaovr is creamy and smooth and contains caramelized malt, some fruit in the mid-palate, chocholate, and some char. There is also a hint of meaty smoke. The body is medium and a touch thin on the palate. Overall this is a pretty solid stout.

Sampled from a growler at DarkLord Day, thanks anonymous person. Pours a murky brown with a small head. Chocolate nose, not picking out much else. Light chocolate flavors with a smooth palate. Not very sweet for a sweet stout, and actually finishes a little dry ... but a decent stout none the less.

Had this on draft on a recent road trip. Served in a pub pint glass. Appears a very dark brown with a good one inch head on top. Looks good. Smell is roasted oats and malts. Taste is roasted oats with some molasses. Mouthfeel is really thick/creamy and smooth. Little to no carbonation to speak of. This is a good offering and a very good representation of the style. It goes down very easy and with no signs of the alcohol content. Which makes this a very sessionable beer.

Sampler-sized draft at LBC Black as road tar... no, that sounds unpleasant... well, black. A thin head owed partly to LBC’s lower carbonation levels across the line. A silky, creamy texture that does not mask the stout’s bitterness and a bit of driness. In other words, there are characteristics of nearly every kind of stout at work here.

Draught during my Great Lakes area brew tour. Black pour with some ruby, small white head. The nose is of oats and chocolate. The oats are definitely in the flavor, but not as strong as other stouts of this style. The chocolate character is well rounded and appropriately sweet. A bit of bitterness is noticeable in the form of elusive, piny hops. The finish is dusty but mainly sweet like milk chocolate. The mouthfeel was reasonably silky with a fairly low level of carbonation. Had this for breakfast on a Thursday. What a great way to start the day!

From a growler. Just about opaque black with a small frothy tan head. Coffee and chocolate evident in the aroma, a touch of oatmeal and caramel. Medium bodied, low carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. The flavor was malty mocha with a hint of oats. Pretty good stout.

mmmm...the perfect end to my meal at the brewpub. first sip revealed a definate chocolate and coffee taste. almost like capuccino. smooth and silky for sure. not too sweet like some sweet stouts though. just the right balance. later, i also noted some molases and a bit of an anise taste as well.

Festival Tap: Black with roasty nose. Some chocolate coffee in the flavor, but flavor was rather light all around. Mouthfeel was especially creamy which was welcome. Slight dryness at finish, description says 44IBU.
