A tan head sits briefly over the body of this opaque black brew.
Sweet roast malt aroma with nutty coffee and cocoa notes.
The flavor is sweet and nutty at the start with some bitterness coming in at the end.
A bit thin.
Could use a creamier mouth feel.

A- Deep, dark brown body that pours with two-finger foamy white head. Head has decent retention but slowly disappears completely. Very little lacing is left behind in the glass. When held up to the light the brew is a transparent deep mahogany.
S-Nose is not strong. Roasted malt dominates the nose but caramel, toffee and a sugary sweetness hide in the background.
T- Caramel malt, chocolate malt, and toffee mix lightly for the initial flavor. The finish is nearly all toasted malt with a hint of hop flavor added. Not much lingers on the palate.
P-Low to medium carbonation and a moderately thick oatmeal stout mouthfeel.
O- This is my first offering from wild goose. This brew is a classic example of an Oatmeal Stout and is very drinkable.

Bottle. Pours deep reddish brown, ruby-colored, with a small tan head. I feel like it should be darker. Aroma of sweet malt, sugar cane, raisins, and faint coffee. Flavor is sweet brown sugar and candy, with a slight bitter/roasty finish. Thin with low carbonation; smooth. It’s decent.

Draught at Beer Temple, Amsterdam on 19th March 2010. Black with a grey head. Burnt roast malts and delicious coffee espresso notes. Strong "zing" on the tongue. Malt aroma, rich and thick texture and a hint of (cigar) smoke. Bitter aftertaste, subtly rounded by residual maltiness. First class stout.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2010 Would be a higher score if price was considered. $6.50 for a warm sixer at liquor stores in Maryland. Medium sweetness, creamy, good summertime stout. Tastes awesome with seafood.

On tap at In de Wildeman. Dark brown, almost black with a small, beige head. Milk, good roast, molasses, caramel. On the sweet side, as expected from the style. Still nice with good complexity.

This beer is very pleasant,poors black to deep brown in color.The head leaves alot to be desired thin and gone quick.What it lacks in apperance it makes up for in taste.A nice balance between the classic stout flavor and a earthy oat note.Rich,robust and malty.
