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.

Another disappointing stout. Been drinking imperials lately so maybe I just don’t remember what a normal stout should taste like...but I’m pretty sure it’s not quite like this.

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 (2826) - 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.

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

Dark pour, light tan head. Nice chocolate, roast character, even some nuttiness that is very well balanced with a subtle bitterness. Very drinkable, and keeps you coming back for another.

jgb9348 (4979) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Deep dark brown coloured body with a rich, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, raisins, oatmeal and figs, all showing some nuts and earth. Medium-bodied;Rich sweet flavour with the pit fruits and figs showing through and some light earthiness, with a lot of cream and vanilla flavours. Aftertaste shows shows more sweetness with a little yeast and more body than typical for the style. Overall, a nice rich, sweet stout, plenty of complexity and a good smooth finish. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Cary, North Carolina on 02-August-2014 for US$1,99 sampled on the train from Washington to New York on 07-November-2014.

Dark thin pour with a very frothy tan head. Looks great. Taste is rather disappointing. Very one dimensional and I almost get a plastic taste on the back end. Taste this beer with your eyes not your mouth if you want to enjoy it.
