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.

RichardW (1517) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle from Jasper wine & liquor store. Pours thick and black, superb chocolate and roast malt aroma, oily and rich on the tongue with a smooth subtle finish. Mighty fine.

Creamy black pour. Sweet and smooth with some nice hop character. Dry finish. Very good beer for the style.

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.

CapFlu (4524) - 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!

Clear deep dark amber, foamy tan head settles and mostly lasts. Rich sweet aroma of chocolate and dark toasty malt. In contrast the first sip is sharp bitter coffee bean, followed by bittersweet dark roasted chocolate malts, some nuttiness. Soft smooth carbonation, medium-full body, moderately hopped. Clean coffee ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Love this beer and finally got it in saskatchewan. Pours black with a good inch tan head. Aroma is roasted and chocolate malt. Nice roasted malt and hint of chocolate flavour. Only down side is it could be darker and more complex. Body is a bit light. Don’t understand the organic gimmick but top each their own. Cheers!

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.

solid oaty aroma, milk chocolate brown with absolutely no head, weak body, sweet and oaty with subtle hints of coffee

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2004 (Draft) Nice black color, needs a bigger head or a niro pour with lower carbonation rate roasty and molasses coming through. Needs more body for a stout. Decent flavor with a need for extra oatmeal for a more oily mouthfeel. Not bad.
