Toffee and coffee notes on the nose...Smells amazing. Quarter inch of caramel foam, solid black pour, bitter cereal flavor on the middle of the tongue.

Název stylu mluví za vše - pivák to byl sladký jako cecek, ale jinak celkem pitelný. Konzistence černého kafe, skoro žádná pěna. Lahváč z nového jorku.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz into a pint. Pours a murky thick brown/black/lava-ish dark goo, taste is sweet, compelling and malty. The stout qualities of this one resinate in the malt backbone that then transpires into the sweetness where danty chocolate drops and licorice run around. Head is a ring o round the glass with a few islands. carbination is mild, body is medium/full, and the tartness within the aftertaste turns around the sweet splenda type sugar taste towards a dry coco bitter porter. but then that sweetness brings this one back, midly yet forcefully reminding one of the dark presence within. Good deal for the winter time, or just any time really.

12 ounce bottle. Pours dark brown with a small biege head. Aroma of malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Pretty good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12-oz bottle. Pours almost black with ruby cast around the edges. One-finger head that dissipates quickly into a shallow ring. Light lacing. A nice open and airy aroma, filled with roasted coffee beans, cocoa powder, and almonds. Taste is true to the aroma. Sweet and nutty with good roasted coffee bitterness. Some sour lactose notes. Medium body with a slick texture. Carbonation softens within a few minutes. Nice long finish. Very pleasant. A good stout that doesn’t sacrifice taste for drinkability.

Really love this beer. Not a perfect oatmeal stout, but great for sipping on a cold winter day.

Lighter body than I anticipated. Coated the palate nicely. Smooth. Would recommend to anyone shy about drinking stouts

This is my gold-standard oatmeal stout. Finally had on on tap at Columbia Gorge Hotel. Ninkasi Oatis comes close, but this one really satisfies all aspects of stouthood. Check out the Organic Beer Festival at Overlook Park this summer - Wolaver is always there and always hits it out of the park, especially on a nitro tap!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 Small head, dominating coffee scent. A little liquory on the finish. Malty and sweet on the tongue, not in a bad way. Would drink again, and since Wolaver’s is in every supermarket and liquor store in New Hampshire, I’m sure I will at some point.

Draught. This is thin, not as roasty as I would like, and generally uninspiring.
