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.

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.

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.

On tap (growler) from Lowe’s Foods in Cary. Dark color with slight amber head. Nothing too special about this, but it’s pretty good relative to other stouts I’ve had from NC breweries.

CelticBrew (880) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Pours from 12 oz bottle pure black, forming dark brown head of foam, two fingers. Aroma of light chocolate coffee, lightly roasted nuts, with a bit of vanilla and toffee. Flavour mostly the same, sourness with burnt coffee and toffee. Really cant detect much oatmeal. An ok stout I suppose.
