Bottle. Potent chocolate nose with lots of roasted malt and some dry grit to go with the oaten vanilla. Darker pour than your avg sweet stout, near-opaque black-ruby with a lusciously creamy and rocky dark brown head. Bodys watery, but the dry roast taste remains strong. Salty taste, reminds somewhat of Dutch licorice, and some burned notes. Only a restrained tanginess in the otherwise dry and slightly gritty finish. I was expecting a little more sweetness, a little more oatiness, but am still pretty happy with the product.

Bottle. Dark black color. Taste is sweet and almost creamy. Not sure if this is too sweet but has a distinct taste of oats and roasted malt.

This is probally my favorite oatmeal stout. It pours black with a light tan head. It has a nice roasted finish and sweet and creamy up front. Good beer, Ive tried a couple of Anderson Valley beers and they all have been pretty good.

Black colour with a nice head. Aroma of wheat, oat and roastedness. Roasted flavour with notes of chocolate and some fruitness.

From the bottle... great frothy head with solid retention. Not very aromatic, but decent roasted malt flavor on the front end. Not a real malty sweet balance for an oatmeal, but a decent stout.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Near black with some ruby highlights at the bottom of the glass. chocolate and caramel inthe aroma. Taste is chocolate and caramel, smooth but somewhat thin body for the style, with a roasty lightly bitter and astrigent finish.

Hollywoodt (240) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2006
Poured a dark brown with minimal tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, with a hint of caramel and coffee. The taste was mostly the malt, with some bitter at the end. Too bad... the aroma had me convinced this was going to be fantastic. It was OK, but nothing special.

Blind tasting. Black w/ decent head. A little vanilla in the taste with some slight chocolate and coffee. Nothing overwhelming.

Thanks to shigadayo for the trade on this one. Acrid smell with metallic nose. Pours black with little tan head. I taste the malt with a middle of coffee and finishes with a sweet taste. Not a bad beer to have on a cold winter night.
