COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very full-bodied oatmeal stout with five different roasted malts and a thick, creamy texture-a meal in a glass!

Not bad, but thatís the best compliment I can make. Very flat, more like flat soda than creamy beer. Nothing special about the taste; not strong, almost as if itís a light beer.

[Can] Pours a very dark shade of brown with virtually no head on it. Strange aroma is of dark malts, residual sugars, metal and hints of vanilla. The taste is distinctive of íhomebrew twangí. Tastes like stale malt extract, soured grains, light ash, metal and brown sugar. Very low carbonation levels make this one a bit flat. I didnít care for this particular brew.

Ported from BA. Appearance: Pretty much no head. Half a finger at most, and it goes south pretty quickly. Not quite black, but an opaque dark dark brown, and a dark khaki tan around the edges when held up to the light. Smell: Malty, milky, and mild. Thereís also a tinge of tinny scent in there too. No bitterness at all. Itís has a cold latte feeling to it. Taste: It tastes milky, malty and surprisingly bitter, but not like hops. More like espresso, or baking chocolate. Iím not really getting any oatmeal taste in it though. Mouthfeel: Medium body, and feels kind of awkwardly metallic. Unfortunately, the metal flavor of it is the only thing that really sticks around for long. Above average carbonation for a stout. Overall: Reminds me of a stout I made once. It was okay. This one is too. I donít know if I would buy it much unless it were cheap, and Iím not sure if it is since itís from a trade.

Pours a thin black with an off white head. At 6.5% this is a very easy drinking oatmeal stout. Nice balance in the malt profile little to no hop flavor. A nice beer to be certain!

12 oz can. Pours a black body with a small fizzy light brown head that faded to a very thin covering. The nose is really roasty with a touch of burnt malt smokiness. A little sweetness and a little coffee. The flavor has just the right amount of sweetness mixed with some roast and burnt caramel. Mouthfeel is fairly thick with a bit of clinginess on the back end. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Not the best Sweet Stout, but itís drinkable for 12 ounces worth.

nuplastikk (4342) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2011
12oz can. Opaque brown black with a rusty beige head. Sweet, luscious chocolate tones in the aroma. Kind of an odd, watery mouthfeel. Chalky coffee finish. Seems like it would go over well on nitro. The soapy cocoa bitterness is not entirely pleasant, probably could benefit from a change in the hops/hopping. Dry, not so memorable, but still drinkable.

Muddy dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasty, chocolate and burnt toast. Thin bodied. Very roasty on the verge of being smokey.

My can is black with a name of Wild Onion Brewing Jack Stout. Also, it says 6% not 6.5% so Iím not sure if this is the right place for my rating. Anyway, out of the can its pour is quite interesting. Black, with a thin tan head that fades rapidly. Smell is that of some sterile impy stouts Iíve had so it is a little alarming. However, the first taste sooths all those alrms, certainly this is a smooth black stout that comes across rather creamy and friendly. Barely any co2 but for what it does have, its enjoyable and not quite flat. Taste is smooth and easy and it almost has a tart background which makes it very interesting. Very little bitterness in this brew. Yes, rather enjoyable overall expereince, I would certainly buy this again. Paid $3 for this at the house of 1000 beers. Good example of a dark beer. I should have bought a six pack of this.
