Too much of a coffee taste left in my mouth for about 10 minutes. If you like coffee, go for it!

Damn I love the oatmeal stouts. Again, a creamier body than a regular stout which leads to an easier drinking beer with a more enjoyable roasted flavor.

The oatmeal flavor was a unique twist, but this beer was far too sweet for me.

Not a bad stout although I hate to say its no guinness. Not a lot of taste really, but quite drinkable.

This is a nice thick stout, which well accompanies a heavy meal. Nice foamy head, malty flavour and clean finish. I prefer it very cold.

Not much nose, but a low malty taste. Not creamy like I expected.

Soft and smooth. Coffee aroma and flavor makes it almost dessert like. The more you have the better it gets. Enjoy this slowly in front of a fire.

A tangy oatmeal stout. Very creamy but without an overbearing flavour.

I just can’t seem to get behind the Young’s line of beers. They all just seem to fall short on body and malt flavor. This is no exception - extraordinarily mild and thin mouthfeel. Tastes fine, but very little flavor, even as I kept letting it warm up for over 30 minutes.

Looks and smells like a beaut! A little watery though.
