A nice rich oatmeal stout. Lots of chocolate in this one. Dark and rich with a thick tan head. Tried in a little restaurant north of the redwoods in 2014.

Salmoniform (477) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Oily black hue with brown tan head that lingers. Aroma is vanilla, coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, toasted oats. Mouthfeel us nice with a medium light body and good carbonation. Taste is dry initially with a nice bitter following and CO2 bite in the finish. Overall this is a nice soft velvety stout with a sweet essence but smooth and balanced. Very nice.

This is a really great oatmeal stout. Great burnt notes, nice bitterness, and very smooth in the mouth. I could drink this all day long.

Bottle received in trade from BeerKangaroo, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a solid dark brown/black with a decent sized bubbly tan head that quickly dissipates to a small cap on top. Aromas of coffee and chocolate with bits of caramel and cereal grains and hints of fruit. The flavor is what I expected from the aroma. Roasted creamed coffee with a touch of chocolate and caramel and a hint of lactose? Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Decent brew, but seems a bit lacking in body and mouthfeel.

So much better than the vanilla version, lots of oatmeal, chocolate, tasty, so drinkable. Black bodied, spot on, smooth.

a little disappointing given the high marks; this probably has a year or two of age on it. Aroma is subtle - nothing jumps out - roast, coffee. nice blac pour. palate is toooo thin for this style - where are the oats?? taste is thin with light flavors of roast, chocolate and coffee - maybe it is too subtle for me?

Nice aroma of vanilla hits you right of the bat. Nice chocolate and subdued coffee. Quickly disappearing head next to no lacing.

(Another sample from Kenneth) The nose is roasty malts, with notes of chocolate and coffee. Pours a thick brownish-black with slight tan head and minimal lacing. The taste, while lightly sweet, has a nice roasty quality about it. Chocolate, oats, and hints of coffee, cola, and a slight suggestion of sourness round out the flavors. Nice. Full body with moderate carbonation. Pleasing round mouth feel. Overall, this was a very tastyand satisfying sweet stout. Iím sure that Otis is proud.
