Bottled 10/26/05: Nice coffee and mocha aroma; malty, mocha begiining, roasty, slightly hoppy bitter finish; lightly acidic with a slick mouthfeel. One of the best oatmeal stouts yet.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled Nov. 9, 2005. Dark dark brown with a tan disappearing head. Aroma of caramel and grain. Nice body. Sweet, coffee, roasty, grassy. Grassy, roasty finish. I don’t really see why it’s called an oatmeal stout.

Bottle. Sweet caramel nose. Medium dark color with thin head. I thought this one had a nice sweetness, but the watery mouthfeel washed the flavor away too quickly.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Black with amber highlights, fine tan head. Dry, roasty perked coffee aroma. Not much of what I expect as oatmeal character. Dry, pleasant roast astringency. I liked this better on tap. As tasted here, it’s still pleasant, but a bit one-note. And tap or bottle, the version with coffee is much more interesting.

Malts are roasty and chocolate. Slightly spicy hops. Nice chewy mouthfeel. Nice balance between the roastiness and the sweetness. Very smooth tasting. Slightly dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter with some coffee characters.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strange notes of caramel, spring water, berry syrup, and oreos. An attempt at an oatmeal stout that ends up a little too sweet and light-bodied. Barely any roast character at all.

On tap and then later from a bottle. Here’s an instance where I liked the beer better from the bottle - the tap version felt thinner and the bottled version was thicker and more full flavored. Plenty of roasted coffee and nutty caramel aroma. Sweet at the front followed by caramel, oats, coffee, and finished with some chocolate and more roast.

4.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Draft in shaker glass. This beer is nearly black in color with a creamy persistant head and a solid lacing that obscures the outside of the glass. It has a faint unpleasant metallic aroma. You can taste oatmeal (suprising, eh?) and a bit of coffee and roasted barley. It’s very good and extremely drinkable. This is an excellent stout despite its unpleasant aroma.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle via trade with Duane! - Thanks Duane!! - Pours black with a fair tan head that laces a bit. Aroma is straight up coffee. Flavor is more of a blend of coffee, chocolate, and a nice roasty flavor. The coffee flavor dominates though. On the palate this is medium bodied and very drinkable Not too bad...
