A beautifully hand crafted beer with an exceptionally smooth palette and a fruity aroma. A dark, ruby-coloured stout, almost black from a distance, with a beautiful creamy head. Fuggles and Goldings hops. 20% Slovenian Goldings added 10 minutes befofe end of boil.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2003 nice chocolate oatmeal aroma, creamy head, rich, very rich. i've never had the bottled version but if the can is inferior like everyone says, i can't wait to try it. Lorin would like this beer, she seems to be a youngs fan, but she was a wuss and wouldn't try it. soft core!

Real good. I love the double choclate, but didn’t know what to expect out of the oatmeal, let me tell you I was pleasantly pleased.

A great Oatmeal Stout with the nitro widget. Slightly more reserved than the bottled version, but very creamy and smooth. Maintains a moderate amount of dark roasted malt flavor throughout. Semi-dry finish.

Somewhat disappointing - maybe I got a bad can? I enjoyed the slight burnt, malty flavor, but overall I thought it was kind of bland. I also sensed a somewhat stringent aftertaste. I’ll need to try another one sometime to confirm this though. Maybe I’ll look for it on draught (if that’s possible to find).
