Bottled, Stockholm Beer Festival. Dark brown. Cocoa nose, with a touch of menthol. Creamy milky mouthfeel. Not very roasty. Medium bitter. Long finish. Nice hops presence, considering the style.

im almost at a loss on how to rate this beer..tastes much more like a hoppy APA than a stout...weird indeed. i dont want to hurt its rating, but the coffee chocolate flavors are masked by a big hoppy flavor...in addition, ive noticed that as it warms, it begins to take on more characteristics of a stout

Black as night, with a thick, dense, dark tan head. Its aroma is a little weak, with alcohol showing through; but its flavor is stronger, with oatmeal and bitter hops to cover up the alcohol. The aftertaste has a weak suggestion of espresso. This is an okay brew, but not a first-rate stout by any means.

Dark and smooth. Initally reminded me of Samual Smith Oatmeal Stout but not as creamy smooth tasting and also a bit more alcohol taste.

Crit (3890) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2010 Black with quick dissipating brown head. Smooth sweet oatmeal flavor. Ok, but lacking in body and flavor

Nice slightly sweet roasted aroma.Body seems a little thin, with more roasted flavor than sweetness. Decent, but nothing exciting.

FlacoAlto (4176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 2, 2003
A pitch black beer with a brown quickly dissipating head. Quite a roasted aroma to it, coffee and notes of biscuits. Quite smooth, finishes with a hint of acidity. A very smooth roast character, the brewer left out the astringency that can often be found in roasted beers. Not as thick bodied as some examples but still quite nice. As this beer warms up id develops some malty complexity.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2003
Pours damn near opaque, with a huge frothy tannish head. Wine like aromas dominate this beer. Fruit and malt are standing out the most. A tad bit of hops is hanging out. Roasted malts, caramel are in the flavor, a bit of grape finishes it off. Nothing bad about this stout.

SiddFinch (155) - Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2003
Thick head. Drier than most oatmeal stouts. The oatmeal is present but is somewhat dominated by the dryness. Overall, not that bad.
