4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew has a mild hoppy malt aroma. Invigorated pour with a light brown head of small to medium bubbles and a opaque dark brown body with a receding lacing on the side of the glass. It has a surprisingly smooth flavor with very subtle taste. Hard to place the flavor, but it went down very easily and was very much to my liking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great big frothy tan head which settles like a guinness. Very little carbonation. Awesome color of dark brown. Arome of chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor is very smooth with dark chocolate and grains present. Slight iron taste also. Finish is creamy and smooth with a slight lingering bitter finish. Also not much alcohol present for a stout. A decent stout and one I would recomend for someone who does not like big thick hearty stouts as the beer is a decent but thin consistency.

Dark color with a thick, milky body. Wonderful mouthfeel! Roasted profile is well done and the oatmeal adds a nice creaminess to the brew. Sweet and fruity at the end, a really good stout.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 When poured out had little to no head and a very dark color. The nose is quite complex and wonderful, with the graininess shining through. Nice malty sweet palate with a strong though well balanced hops finish. A great stout.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Black in color with a large tan head. As dark as this beer is there is only a subtle roasted malt aroma. I detected some sweetness but mainly focused on a stale aftertaste. I did not like this.

This is the best Oatmeal Stout I've ever tasted! It is most excellent. I guess I've been lucky in that I've yet to have one that has gone bad. The head is beautiful, the taste sublime, the color is gorgeous, mouthfeel is just right and the carbonation is glorious going over the tongue. What more can be said?

really enjoyed this sweet stout ... poured as thick as an imperial as you would expect from an oatmeal ... the 'sweet' in sweet stout isnt TOO sweet at all, which is to my liking ... overall very nice feel and flavors, that could be stronger, but work well ... low ABV is curious but then im not a brewer ...

4.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
after i picked this up i was terrified it was going to have gone sour because of the clear bottle, but it must be my lucky day because it's just perfect. pours a beautiful deep black color with a fluffy tan head that fades fairly quickly. there's something just a little bit odd in the aroma; i smell chocolate and coffee and something else that i can't identify. thick and sweet with a bit of hop and roastiness with a dry, bitter finish. fantastic beer, all around.

This beer poured a dark black with a picture perfect tan frothy head. No way to see through the body of this beer. The aroma is of coffee, chocolate and wine-like alcohol. A flavor of oats, chocolate malt balls and some coffee. A very nice full palate and some dryness in the finish. A very fullfilling stout.
