Boundary Bay delivers a solid oatmeal stout that is rich enough to make you skip dinner for the night and order another pint. Very drinkable, only slightly roasty with the smooth sweetness characteristic of oatmeal stouts. apost8n8 (123) - USA - MAY 25, 2005
Black, tan head, lotsa lacing, lotsa flavors going on. cchoclate, licorice, much more flora and splicy flavors than i usually see in stouts. I’ll try it again. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2007

A deep brown color with a thick chocloate flavor and a deep rich malt and great subtle coffee flavor. This was a very good Oatmeal stout. I will drink this again and again.
I would tend to disagree with the average rater here that this stout is lacking in ’fullness.’ I thought the Boundary stout had a lot to offer. Deep burgandy with a sharp nose, this stout had more chiseled features than a backstreet boy. Nice balance of chocolate and espresso malts (with an emphasis on the latter) and a rather subtle hoppiness when compared with most good stouts. This brew succeeds in satisfying the typical stout fan’s cravings yet remains rather inobtrusive. rm0312 (36) - Idaho, USA - FEB 25, 2008
On draft (cask style) at Capone’s in North Idaho. Nice dark appearance with a roasty aroma. Got a little bit of hops with some chocolate in the flavor. It was very good with the sandwich (Philly) I paired it with. I’d have it again.

On tap at the Iron Rabbit in Olympia, WA. Pours a deep ebony color with a thin tan head. The aroma is roasted malts and chocolate with a nutty undertone. The flavor is rich, smoky, and a bit sweet (almost like a porter), but the hops gives it a nice balance. Lots of character in this beer! Nice, full, soft mouthfeel. This brew would be great on a chilly, rainy evening with the fireplace going and a hearty burgundy beef stew for dinner. manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 12, 2010
Sample at the brewpub in Bellingham. Dark and black with thin beige head. Aroma is deep and sweet with roasted malt, cereal, hops. Taste has chocolate, coffee, roast is mild but evident, hops are sharp and under played. Finish lingers well and is satisfying. duffman462 (175) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2006
Pours a very dark black. Flavors of chocolate and espresso. Some hopping is evident, although not overwhelming. Finish is malty with a nice alcohol warmth. A very nice and approachable stout. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JAN 10, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2008 Opaque black with a light brown head. Smells strongly of dark bread, roasted nuts, chocolate milk, and chicory coffee. Medium bodied with a creamy yet dryish texture. Taste is a semi sweet chocolate with brown sugar. Has a chicory flavor that makes for a slightly bitter finish.
A great stout, this brew strikes a nice balance between the sweet, blackened, and burnt malt flavors.
Very smooth and easy drinking. Dec 2004 carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2009
on tap at Collins. Dark black, as expected, but little head, which I do not mind. No lacing either. Aroma is deep cocoa coffee with the subtle hints of oatiness behind it. Taste matches, with light bitterness. Very nice.
