3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On most nights this would be remembered as a great beer. However, on the same night that I sampled this, I was lucky enough to try the local Tucson brew, Nimbus Oatmeal Stout, which definetely seems to be superior, probably from its more evident oatmeal flavor.

Something was missing from this otherwise widely-acclaimed brew. I felt that it was lacking the charictaristic flavors of an Oatmeal, but it could be that the bottle that I recieved (from VENOM, thanx a lot!) was shaken and disturbed in the long journey from England to Connecticut to Wisconsin.

One of the first premium imports I ever had. No other stout has surpassed this one for me. Rich and not too bitter.

Very smooth even for an oatmeal stout.
The only favor I donít like is the abundance of
a roasted/smoky flavor. Otherwise excellent.

I had heard this was a very good beer, so I decided to order it. It had a very odd flavor, much different than what I was expecting from a stout. But it wasnít a flavor that I liked so I was disapointed. Not something I would order again.

Im a big fan of Oatmeal Stouts and this one does justice to the style.

Highly hopped as expected with a nice toffee aroma. Burnt smoothness warms your mouth and makes you grin.

Oh - now this IS an oatmeal stout. This is what beer drinking is all about. I kept watching the glass get lower and lower, expecting the wonderful taste and aroma to end, but it simply blew my mind how fantastic it was! An absolute must for any beer drinker.
