COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is a heavenly marriage of an Irish-style dry stout and an Oatmeal stout. By complimenting the dominant roasted barley accents of a dry stout with the unmistakably rich and silky finish that only oatmeal can provide.

Pours black with thick off-white head. Aroma is minimal, mostly roasted barley. First sip is slightly bitter with roasted malt and oatmeal. I don’t think it was quite cold enough. Aftertaste is bitter and chalky. Not a lot going on here.

Smells like a shwartzbier,not that that’s a bad thing, and tastes like an Irish dry stout, with a very dry finish. This popular offering from B.C. has a mahagoney coloured body with a ring of lace, after the off-white head dissipitates. Slightly acidic, the oatmeal is there, balanced towards bitter coffee.

Bottle courtesy of Gravelle. Deep motor oil brown, almost opaque. Has a frothy and fluffy off white cap. Coffee, dark chocolate, roasty malts, and fruit in the nose, with a bit of hops. Flavour profile has mostly coffee with roast and dark chocolate with bitter hops. Has a bit of a sourish twang towards the finish which detracts slightly from the taste. Finishes creamy with good lingering aftertaste. Good. Thanks Jon!

Gravelle (104) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2009
Pours rich a creamy. Nice thick off white head. Full cup of coffee and sweet malt. This is a full beer that is a great example of the style IMO.

Bottle. Nice and black stout with a thick, lasting head (the way I like it). Aroma is hard to describe, but pleasant. Taste is dominated by the oatmeal bitterness, although I can sense some sweet dark barley malt in the background. Love the bitter finish.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2009
Awesome colour. Black/tan as night with nothing getting through. Awesome nose with walnuts, ancient grains & fresh rain dew....not to mention the oatmeal and chocolate notes! Well rounded bitter entry with lots of dark cocao but also an off-note of burnt toast. Mid-palate brings sweep of sugary oatmeal, but its over-sweet. True oatmeal is enjoyed for its grain quality, and not for the muted-down sugar soup that many people enjoy. Carbonation is perfect and the finish full of malted barley.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2009
This poured a dark brown with a smallish, light brown head. The head died off rather quickly and no lacing resulted. Aroma was very slight, a bit of coffee was suggested. Taste was nice, both malt and coffee were on show.

spoonman (2) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2007 does not count
Was expecting a bit more body and flavour. Found it quite watery and thin but yet still a bit oily and an odd salty taste overwhelming the light chocolate and roast malts.

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 15, 2007
Very dark brown, slightly hazy, dense tan cap. Rich chocolate and coffee roast aroma. Same flavour profile, with coffee dominating, and an ashy earthy element. Quite an assertively bitter finish. A very nice stout in my opinion. I didn’t find it watery at all.
