Great oatmeal stout flavor but falls a bit in body. Super smooth initially but leaves a nice finish with a slight coat in the throat. The head was a beautiful foam.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 10, 2010
22oz bottle. Rating #117. Dense, dark black pour with a very full and thick dark tan head, moderate lacing, it stuck for a brief moment before it started rolling down the glass. Roasty light chocolate aroma, very nice. Roasty, smoky flavor, very smoky as a matter of fact, it really sticks to the tongue. Nice and smooth, but it was a little too roasty/smoky for my taste.

Rating #1000! Sampled in a 22oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a big oatmeal malty aroma. Drinks quite smoothly for an oatmeal stout. Drinks smooth with a good flavor. The malt quality is really good.

Oakes (13601) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2010
Dark brown, looks thick. Nice thick head. Rich roasty aroma fulling just short of imperial status with oaty, creamy nuances. Creamy rich, full of oats, very smooth and full-bodied. Chocolatey - dark chocolate bitterness and light roast accents. Maybe some burnt fruit at the back. Excellent spring stout.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2010
Bottle. Thick black with brown head that fades and leaves scattered lace. Toasted malt aroma is pure and chocolatey. The palate is pretty thick, chewy and creamy. Lots of lingering bitter chocolate in the finish. Seems sessionable, itís such a taste OS.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Black pour with a big fluffy tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is toast, oats, coffee, roastiness. The flavor is much the same, with a silky, smooth, moderately body. Very easy drinking for a stout and a good value.

Zymurgeist2 (1356) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 10, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2012 Nice black color with brown inflections and a brown head. Roast on the nose and an oily medium mouthfeel. Chocolate and roast with oily palate and a little bite on the finish. Tasted at a Ninkasi dinner at Monkís Kettle for their release in SF. Perhaps I should retry this after not being blown away by 3 other Ninkasi beers, this didnít live up to the others. [retasted in May 2012 and bumped up a couple of pkints].
