Oast House Coffee Milk Stout (Bourbon)
On tap at Volo. Pours a nearly black brown colour with modest-sized beige head. Aroma is big coffee, roasted grains, some bourbon, a lactic note and sweet chocolate. Flavour is a lovely combination of roasty espresso and sweet milk chocolate, some bourbon and a little lactic sourness. Creamy mouthfeel. Really good.

Oast House Coffee Milk Stout (Bourbon)
Lots of complex flavours going on here and they all fit together in the end. Pours dark black with a rich crema head. Aroma is of coffee, vanilla, wood, chocolate, and bourbon. Taste is espresso, chocolate, vanilla, coconut, and brown sugar. Has a heavy body that is bitter upfront and finishes smooth. One pint will do you of this rich brew.

Oast House Sweet n Sowr
Bouteille 750ml, gracieuseté de msjpearson, Thanks Mike! Couleur orange brûlé trouble, mousse beige imposante mais fugace laissant une dentelle éparse. Arôme de raisin, malt, un peu sauvage, fruité, liège. Goût de malt, un peu vineux, légère acidité, liège en fin de bouche. Carbonatation très (trop?) élevée, corps moyen-faible.

Oast House Toasted Walnut
2016-03-05. Aroma of wood barrel has a vinous not quite red wine like quality to it, like a combination of the wood and alcohol of the beer. Flavour is strongly woody, vanilla, sweet lightly sugary dark malt. Wood character dominates over what seems like a nice base. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ 5/3/4/3/9-10 On tap at C’est What, Toronto.

Oast House Biere de Garde
750ml corked bottle pours a dark amber brown color with a 2 finger light beige head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits with some caramel and yeasty notes. Taste is a dark fruity and caramel malty sweetness with herbal bitterness. Light to medium bodied with abundant carbonation. An enjoyable brew that is well balanced and a good representation of the style.

Niagara Oast House Eisbock
On tap @ the bent elbow - deep dark brown, not much cap, rich maltiness with prunes and a vinous note lightly sweet, thins in the finish, hides the alcohol well. A decent Eisbock made in the traditional way but a tad too :"port-like" for my liking

Golden pour. The nose is lightly peppery with an almost minty note over the top. Has a bit of soft vanilla and a touch of citrus. Kind of unusual. Understated.

On tap at Tall Boys. Found this to be underwhelming for a pale ale. When it comes to the hops there really is no there there. Happy steals a sip from my glass & grimaces. Says he’s not partial to water flavoured beer. And neither am I.

Oast House Cherry Berliner
Cloudy ruddy-pink pour. The nose is really nice. Lots of cherry with notes of almond and deep fruit over a lactic sort of quality. The fruit really pops on the back of the palate. Tart up front but there is a soft sweetness in the back. Sort of a spicy/rich fruitiness and a bit of lingering wildness. Damn tasty.

Oast House Farmer’s Tan Summer IPA
June 14, 2013 - on draught at Thirsty & Miserable. Clear, oily-looking amber-gold with a solid creamy lasting off-white head. The aroma ... weird ... it’s popcorn and "golden topping" - ugh. Taste is ... okay - not nasty, but definite diacetyl and harshness - not too papery, but floral and grain, and mild alcohol (a generous 6-) ... thick, chewy, astringent, weakly carbonated, increasingly harsh ---- not a nice beer at all - avoid, future me!

Oast House Dr. Lychee Gose Nuts
Had this at the Oast House. It had added carbonation from Cask Days but was the same beer. Approachable and true to style gose, salt forward, with some flavour behind it for balance and sweetness, apparently the lychee.

Oast House X Momofuku Peach Ale
On tap a momofuku. Hazy orange pour, with a small white head. Aroma is all peaches, semi sweet peach nectar. Mouth feel is spot on, and the carb is good. Finish is surprisingly bitter, and astringent. Makes for an odd contrast with the super sweet peachy aroma. Overall is went well with my noodles.

Oast House Saison
Cloud ripe banana peel colour. Foamy, bright, white, thick head with long continuance and a hearty rim lacing. Lots of quick rising bubbles. Fresh spiced aroma with fresh grapefruit notes and a dry straw hoppiness with a barn-like overtone. Creamy approach with light citrus flavours of orange and lemon. It’s sweet malty and bitter at the start which is quelled by the carbonation then balanced by the late taste of hops. Dry mouth feel with a late aftertaste.
