Nov 2005 - I couldn’t taste a thing of oatmeal and it wasn’t very sweet either, but not bad (just not what I expected). Beer poured dark, dark brown with almost no head at all. Flavor was coffee and roasted malts. Tasted better as it warmed

Source: Norm’s, DC
Black, whispy tan head, odorless and flavorless, touch of grain bitterness in the finish, smooth body,
it almost has a roasted aroma this time, still no flavor other than a bitter black patent character, a 7% ’troegs winter oatmeal stout’ ranks highly on ba.com, this must be a different beer
Score: 2.0 to 3.1
dry roasted malt aroma with a light dark fruit character,
rich chocolate flavor with light roasted, stays very dry between the roast and light hops,
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 7/10; Overall: 12/20

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I wish I had a tale of ribaldry or something to share. I do not.
Appearance: Pours out a dark (near black) brown and topped with a towering, foamy brown head.
Smell: Mild aroma that comes and goes but delivers scents of espresso and bittersweet chocolate.
Taste: Largely roasty, with flavors of dark chocolate, touch of vanilla, and a lactose sweetness. Prolonged dry, roasted bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Smooth, though slightly thinner than expected.
Drinkability: Nicely done, but not the most thrilling stout available.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Dark brown pour with a thick, tanned head and subtle lacing. Nose is roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is a rich blend of coffee, cocoa, bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, and oats. Very typical flavors of an oatmeal stout, but rich and lingering finish. A little bit of hops bitters in the finish with lingering coffee aftertaste. Thanks JCB for sending this tasty treat.
