COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A robust, Irish-style stout with 75 pounds of rolled and steel-cut oats included in the mash. The oats add a creamy texture and velvety smoothness that help round out the roasted barley bite. Served nitrogen-conditioned for a thick, frothy head.

On tap at Portsmouth brewpub. Pours out a dark brown topped with a nice brown head. Aroma was nice with lots of sweet roast malts, chocolate, and a little smoke. Taste was more of the rich roast, coffee, pit fruit, and a little bitterness on the end.

Bottle from Goodgrief. Pour was typical for an oaty stout, perhaps a bit short on the head but good nonetheless. The aroma was chocolate syrupy, grains, and a touch of smoke. Flavor followed, the oats breaking up the sweet chocolate syrup, smoke firming it up, caramel, and molasses too. Not a bad brew, hard to get good oat stouts in bottles, so cheers, cheers! Thanks, Tom!

On tap @ the pub.Pours dark brown to black with a brown head. The aroma is strong coffee with some cream in there as well. The flavor is more of the same with coffee, cream and chocolate as well as roasted malts. You also get the oatmeal taste. The mouthfeel is very creamy.

Goodgrief (1789) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 20, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2010 Dark, nice head, some lacing. Strong roasted aroma...smells like breakfast. Lots of roast, bitter, but pleasant. Lots of chewy oatmeal flavor. Amazingly smooth in the mouth. Really odd to have a beer so smooth, yet so bitter. Pretty good.
