Aubrey (3508) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2008
Appearance-wise, it looked like Coca-Cola. Texture was light, watery and thin (not surprising, due to the alcohol limits). Big coffee, chocolate and roasted grains exuded. Subtle, sweet notes of espresso and cream. Mild bitterness followed. Quite a bit of flavor, overall. If this brewery can do this with the 3.2/4 limit, I can only imagine what they could do without restraints.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Bottle, from Douglas88. One of a bunch of bonus bottles. Really generous of you—thanks! Dark copper, small layer of dirty-snow tan. Cheerio® aroma with a pinch of cocoa. Slightly thin caramel flavor, Chips Ahoy® cookies. Fairly soft on the palate, but undercut by a lack of body. Definitely some nice features here, but as an oatmeal stout, kind of a light-weight.

Black color with tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavor is the same with a hop finish. Body is a little weak, but not bad. Overall, a decent brew.

2008 Bottle - Thanks again to douglas88, chocolatey aroma, tastes of smoke, toffee and hop bitterness, finishes with a caramel goodness. Pretty nice brew...

robinvboyer (4000) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2008
bottle from douglas88. dark pour, small head. Roasty nose, with some soy sauce in there. Flavour is roasty, and full bodied. Body is thin, i would expect a fuller body from an oatmeal stout. St Ambroise still make the best oatmeal stout out there. THis is a nice light drinking stout.

A bonus bottle in a trade with douglass, thanks man! Pours out black with a thin light brown head that goes away very quickly. Aroma is light of roasted malts and a touch of coffee. Taste is light ofr a stout, a bit sweet, and light on coffee. This is very mild as far as stouts go. I dunno not bad but not very flavorful. A drinkable stout if there is such a thing.

12 oz. twist-off bottle, short blurb along the right side of label, no freshness date, sampled in a pint glass. Poured a dark chocolate brown with an tight, compact creamy tan head that leaves a minimal amount of laced sticking. Pleasant lightly roasted malt aromas of caramel, milk chocolate and faint scents of roasted barley grain. The oats lend an appealing light sweetness to the aroma. Smooth and easy drinkability, the body does needs a little heft for the style, but it doesn’t distract from taste. Velvety smooth roasted malts, caramel, milk chocolate and light colored coffee with a dash of sweetness from the oats. There is a good mild roasted bitterness that lasts through out the entire taste. The hops aren’t really detectable, maybe they contribute to some of the bitterness at the end. A subtle flavoful roasted nutty grain lingers a bit in the aftertaste. A pretty decent Oatmeal Stout, not really handicapped by the 4% ABV, quite enjoyable.

Pailhead (6352) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 20, 2007
On tap: The aroma is a simple combination of moderate chocolate and light roasted coffee. It’s a dark brown with a small beige head. The flavor starts with light-moderate chocolate with a well balanced roasted coffee finish and faint burnt grain in the finish. Medium bodied with somewhat lively carbonation for a stout.

nearbeer (4723) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Draft, brewpub at SLC airport. Nearly opaque black-brown with a small, lasting head. Aroma of dry cocoa and earthy spice. Flavor is dry cocoa and metallic herb. Medium bodied, mostly smooth, and slightly watery.
