Re-rating this beer. Itís great and it won the bronze medal at the 2002 Great American Beer Festival. I think it deserved the gold in the Oatmeal Stout category. **** One of my favorite beer styles, this one lives up to all the writing on the label. Creamy and toasty, very subtle hops and dominated by the rich, dry finish. This oatmeal stout is highly recommended. Alcohol level is 6.4% by volume, slightly high for a stout.

Very creamy oatmeal stout with a pleasant dry finish. I found no real flaws with this one. Black pour with nice tan head. Nose and taste of chocolate, oats, cereal, malts and nuts. Rated 9/5/02

Nice stuff. I haven't had any kind of stout in a while, and this made me wonder why I had been neglecting the style. Rich and silky, with coffee and dark chocolate. Sweet but not overly so. Opaque black, with a head the color of the "crema" on good espresso. A very sensual experience. (That may just be because I've been single for too long...) I drank this while watching Emir Kusturica's "Underground," which contains the most drunkenness I've ever seen in a movie, ever.

Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a dark black liquid light can not penetrate with small light caramel colored head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of a toasty, roasty chocolate coffee with a sweet chocolate candy bar and unfortunately light hop character. Flavor is a small, gentle hop (they're right!!) followed by a great roasted coffee finish. No oatmeal flavor detected. Beer says "keep refrigerated upon purchase". I don't. Hop aroma and flavor is this beer's only flaw. Otherwise, very nice. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

At 21 Iím a newbie to the world of beer tasting, but Iíve become infatuated with stouts. Wild Goose has a rich flavor and smooth after taste. This is definatly worth a try.

Deep Black color; head was dirty white and THICK; Gouda and Worteschire in the nose. Sweet, chocolate (molasses?), very smooth like a proper oatmeal stout. Thicker in the palate then even the excellent Samuel Smithís. Left lots of pretty lace on the glass. An excellent example of the style.

Huge head on this brew. The nose is roasty and malty. I once had this beer next Brooklyn BCS, the nose on the WGOMS was so much more intense. The palate is rich and creamy. Most of the flavors are coffee when the beer is cold. After warming up much of the esters, nuts, and chocolate come out. The beer is hopped just right. The body is medium to full. A good OMS.

Good dark molasses like color, aroma of coffee and molasses, good balance of maltiness and hoppiness, could taste hints of coffee. Less molasses-like flavor than the Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout, but very tasty.
