Like most Oatmeal stouts, average. It wasn’t too sweet with some roast, but it was also not super thick.

Growler as an extra from tytoanderso! Thanks Tyler, shared with some people at Lost Abbey. Pours with a black body and a creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, leather and roast. Taste is roast, earthy, chocolate and leather. Pretty solid. Creamy body.

DC gathering. This one had made a long journey by growler, but didn’t seem to have suffered too much on the trip. It had a typical big coffee aroma, which carried through on to the palate. Some bitter chocolate too and, despite the "sweet stout" tag, I found it quite dry. Lots of fruity accents. Not the biggest stout, but pretty respectable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich dark nearly opaque brown pour with a thin, whispy light tan head. Aroma is malty, roasty and sweet with a touch of dry hoppiness. Has a caramel dark chocolate flavor with lots of cinnamon and nutmeg spice and some coffee mocha in the finish. Smooth, interesting and complex, an enjoyable brew.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured black with a brown head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma had a nice combination with of strong roasted malt and slight smoke with a bit of backing oat. Flavor had a strong roasted note initially accompanied by some smoke that mellowed to a dark grain finish.

Some pulls from my wife’s two pints at Town Hall. This one pours a dark brown with a finger of beige head that dissipates into a film and ring. Notes of roasted malts, chocolate, oats, cream, caramel, toasted nuts, vanilla, and toast. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Roasty, sweet, and right to style.

Pours thick black with deep tan head, smell is roasted malt with coffee and chocolate. Taste upfront is coffee and bitter chocolate, really creamy mouth feel from the oatmeal, and ends nicely with smooth roasted/smoky malts. Excellent beer!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on tap at the brewpub (Minneapolis, MN). Pours a near pitchblack opaque pour, a decent frothy grayish head, maybe light brown dies to a ring, laces small. Aromas are sweetened coffee, cream, touches of cocoa and roasty grains. Initial is roasty, a fuller bodied, but not overly big. Tastes are roasted coffee, sweet cream, oatmeal, some cocoa, and earth smoke. Peanuts. Some smokiness, roasty, toast, sweet toffee. Not bad, the roast really strikes some good notes. Solid house sweeter slanted stout here, doesn’t overdo it, instead letting the roasted malts take over on the backend
