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 a dark black with tinges of amber and a thin loose-bubble head with minimal lace. Aroma of fancy molasses and metallic hops. Tastes nice and roasty but it’s missing the thickness I’d associate with a stout, especially an oatmeal stout. Nutty, dry finish. Very thin and a bit watery, but creamy (if poured aggressively) and decent carbonation. This needs more body but everything else is fine.

Thanks to Oakes for the sample. Near pitch black in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas of semi-sweet chocolate chips, cookie dough, and a bit of vanilla. Medium bodied with flavors of chocolate, both grainy and strongly roasted malts, and a touch of oatmeal-like smoothness. The drying finish is a nice tip of the hat to the dry stout tradition. Nothing is out of place here... it just needs to be cranked up a notch. Like Oakes mentions, it’s not quite on par with St. Ambroise, but it’s still pretty good.

CapFlu (4484) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 25, 2006
(355ml bottle) Purchased at the BC Liquor Store on Cambie in Vancouver, BC. Pours a large, beige head with a deep ruby near opaque body. White floaties in the bottowm. Nose of molasses, roasted malt and coffee. Flavour is full and oily - coffee grounds, smoked malt, leather conditioner and berry seeds. Filling and rewarding... Mmmm!

Bov (9371) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 14, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2007 courtesy of Oakes - pours a very dark brown, almost black colour under a little and chaotic foam; toasted nose, aroma of licorice, cold coffee and ashes; good malt body; some typical tartness from the oatmeal; long dry and bitter finish with more notes of cold ashes and a touch of black chocolate

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Opaque blackish brown with a receeding tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, slightly flowery hops. Medium body with lightly fizzy carbonation. Seems a bit light for an oatmeal stout, and the expected creamy mouthfeel is absent. Taste is coffee and nuts with some hoppy bitterness in the relatively quick, dry finish.

OKBeer (1170) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 24, 2006
Dark red brown colour with a frothy tan head. Chocolate, coffee, slight citrus aroma. Coffee, roasty, light cocoa flavours. Lightish body.

jercraigs (7657) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2006
Bottle. Black body with a small tan head. Mild dilute roast aroma. Flavour has a very mild roast that while dominant in the flavour can hardly be described as having any heft to it. Thin palate, especially for the style. Disappointing.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2006
Biscuit and roasted malts are joined by a fairly strong, cabbage and bean-like DMS in the nose. Opaque brown body is topped by a low tan head that recedes to a thin partial cover. Chocolate and roasted malts are subdued and again there is a fair bit of cabbagey character apparent. Somewhat slick and watery with fairly low carbonation. Bottle sampled with beerbuzzmontreal, cathschlag, MartinT, Rastacouere, Olivier_MTL, Siroy and Yowie.

AlabastorJones (800) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 20, 2006
sour chocolate nose, maple chcolate flavor, light roast, smooth but a little too light for anyone’s well being, one of those keep all limbs inside the vehicle at all times with your seatbelts and talk radio on kind of stouts.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2006
The pour reveals a black color with a thin light brown head. Aroma and flavor of roasted malt and chocolate. The body is light with an oily texture and soft carbonation. This feels like a weenie stout, kind of boring.
