Bottle. A solid oatmeal stout. I definately prefer this oatmeal to others that I have tried - much tastier and more pleasant. Very good all aorund and very balanced - no characteristics that jump out as outstanding though. I may purchase again if in a stout mood again.

Black colored,vanishing beige head. Strong chocolate with sweetness in aroma, roastiness, toffee and mild alcohol there too. Good aroma. Medium bodied.

vyvvy (6344) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 26, 2006
Pours dark brown with a thick deep brown head. Rich roasted malt aroma with some chocolate tones and woody hops in the background. Medium / full body with quite a bit of soft frothy carbonation. Taste has roasted creamy malt, dark chocolate and vanilla. Finish has some spicy woody hops up front with the roasty malt in the background - bit of a reversal of how the taste are distributed in the inital taste. Very enjoyable stout.

JohnnyJ (5545) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Pours a dark black/brown with tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Aroma and appearance are quite good. Flavors of predominately chocolate, roasted malt and oats. Hints of coffee and pine. Has a bitter smokey finish, which is kind of odd for a sweet stout. Smooth mouthfeel, but a little to thin. Good stout, but a little thin and bitter for the style.

Beaver (1773) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 8, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2006 12 oz bottle. Pours an opaque dark brown with a creamy brown head that goes to a ring that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet chocolate and lactose and some earthy grains.

The flavor is slightly sweet chocolate and strong roastiness followed by some acidic, bitter hoppiness. I got some sour notes towards the end. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and low on carbonation.

Overall, a decent stout. More bitter and roasty than I was expecting from an oatmeal stout. This is a good beer, but nothing too special and a bit overpriced.
