COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Railhouse Mastiff Oatmeal Stout is a variation of the sweet stout but has oatmeal added to increase the fullness of body and flavor and to make a more “nutritious” Stout. The result of this mixture is a firm, smooth, silky light body, and a hint of nuttiness in a complex of coffee, chocolate, and roast flavors. Double hopped for bitterness and flavor with US Goldings.

Very nice "under the top" stout. Pours dark with low creamy head. Nose has chocolate and vanilla, but taste is combination of dark roasted coffee and mildly bitter chocolate. Load of oatmeal calms it all down and leaves a nice finish. Medium not thick mouth feel. Very drinkable and pleasant.

12 oz. Uncloudy deep brown with a small spot of foam. Nose of caramel, dark toast, berry and a hint of espresso. Tastes of berry, toffee, bread, apple, cocoa and dry grass. Medium body has medium carbonation and a decent balance.

Real nice find by Linda. Now this seems like a classic sweet stout to me. Nice bursting full nose. Sweet and oily then a dry finish. Surprised it was 6.5.

Popurs pitch black with a huge sticky off-white head thats got plenty of legs. Very creamy mouthfeel. Nice mix of molasses, aker’s chocolate, and roasted malt. Long mellow roasty finish. Comfort beer.

Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, caramel, roasted grain, Oreo cookie), with a note of vanilla. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. This is a fairly sweet rendition, but it’s still balanced enough in the finish to drink a whole bottle, and the aroma is certainly pleasant (mostly usual suspects for this sorta thing, but enough diversity and richness to be enticing). A decent brew.

Pours up dark black, with a tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel. Flavor is malty brown sugar, and caramel. Only a touch of oats. Thick and rich. Well balanced and easy to drink.

jbruner (2940) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Pours a deep brownish black from the bottle with nice cap of tan head that leaves good lace. Aroma of big earthy soy, nice roasty back end. Taste is roasty dark malt with big earthy soy notes. Meh.

Murrow (87) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours nearly black with light brown head. Mild aroma, roasty character. Slight sour notes. Light flavor, predominantly dark chocolate and espresso. Bitter finish that lingers. Medium mouthfeel. Tasty stout. Mild. Drinkable.

Love this full flavored light bodied stout. Very sessionable. The mix of chocolate and coffee is very well balanced. Nice thick tan head followed by a beautiful laced empty pint glass

This is a beautiful oatmeal stout. Very light in body so can be drank all year long but has a great chocolate and coffee after taste
