3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a deep dark black with a small light brown creamy head that was mostly diminishing leaving behind just enough residue to have some excellent lacing.
The aroma was of burnt chocolate malts, a very mild resin hop presence and a light sweet doughy yeast with hints of maple syrup, brown sugar and oats.
The taste was sweet and acidic with notes of brown sugar and oats at first, but finished with a nice bitter sweet chocolate flavor that lasted an average amount of time after the swallow.
Mouthfeel was full in body with the texture being a little dry and syrupy with a flat carbonation.
Overall a decent Oatmeal Stout that had all the right characteristics and went down rather smooth and easy.
23 oz. bottle pours a translucent dark brown with creamy beige head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is all roasted barley, with mild coffee and mild chocolate. I couldn't detect the oatmeal. Taste is initially sweet and malty but the finish is bitter, Body is at most medium with soft carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. OK, but not one I'll return to enthusiastically. captnwizkidd (17) - COS, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2017
Good stout kinda sweet. Refreshing sipper. Would go good with a smoked meat. gregwilsonstl (2707) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 15, 2017
Creamy flavor and creamy texture. Light body. Malty. Mild coffee (despite claim of boldness). This should be a sweet stout and not regular stout. beergearbox (148) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2017
Beer, wit, & wisdom.
Beer enough to sharpen wit,
Wit enough to give zest to beer,
Wisdom enough to "shut down" at the right time.

Roasted barley aroma, black color. Pretty standard. Taste is too dry for me, expected something sweeter from an oatmeal stout, haven’t found signs of oat here. Body is watery with quite acrid rough aftertaste coming from hops probably

Clear black with small light brown lacing foam head. Coffee and chocolate in aroma, same in taste. Good. (Galveston 201705) gripweed57 (2970) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2017
From old tasting notes. Translucent brownish black color. Bubbly tan head. Nutty roasted malt aroma with hints of chocolate and licorice. Sweetish chocolate malt flavor has hints of peanut, oatmeal and burnt caramel. Smooth yet chewy. A flavorful stout. StoutBeerReviews (274) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 31, 2017
roasted burnt malts, and thats really about it. tastes fine, nothing memorable. tfontana (1184) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 1, 2017
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Greg & Jane’s Beer and Wine. Appearance is dark brown/mahogany with no head, no sparkle and no lacing. Aroma is moderately strong roasted malts, light dark fruit, vanilla, chocolate. Taste is mix of sweet dark fruit/chocolate and milder vanilla with bitter roast. Palate is medium bodied with creamy texture, lively (almost fizzy) carbonation and dry, mostly bitter roasty finish. Overall, all the attributes of a stout are here but everything is executed at a pretty average level. Too carbonated.
