12 oz bottle from a sample case. this is a good stout, but just a little too thin. Perfect blend of chocolate, malt and oatmeal.

Excellent Beer, but a bit on the mild side. A fair nose and a nice finish.

beerstop (173) - Roanoke, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2002
Pours with a chocolate brown head that diminishes after several minutes. Coffee black appearance. Very sweet, malty aroma with a hint of oats. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Nice flavor with oatmeal, toffee, roasted barley flavor. Lightly hopped for a nice finish. Definitely worth trying and much better than its current overall rating of 3.6.

This was a very good oatmeal stout. Not as sweet as some I've tried, but very good maltiness and overall flavor, although the hoppiness was a bit strong.

ladnewton (1413) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2010
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.

Dense and dark; creamy, smooth palate with a fairly assertive roasted malt, burnt taste; mid-palate presents with a mild sweetness; mild hop presence in finish. Another winner from WG.

guzzler67 (1495) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2003
Roasted malt aroma with a hint of bittersweet chocolate. Deep, dark appearance. Nice thick head that stuck around for awhile. Malts and oatmeal were well balanced by the hop variety so the taste comes off neither too heavy nor too sweet. Very smooth on the palate.

Wow, I had thought the only Oatmeal Stout that mattered was the one brewed by Samuel Smith. I was wrong, dead wrong. This wonderous concoction has the same matly oaty hoppy goodness but without the sometimes overwhemlming sweetness. Extremely enjoyable, smooth and flavorful. A classic.
