I liked the roasted malt flavor, but it was a little subdued for a stout. Not very thick at all, and not a very bold flavor at all. A decent, but not great stout. omhper (24966) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2002
Dark brown. Roasty aroma. Sweet, medium bodied. Medium bitterness. The best of the Broughtons. daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2002
Dark brown color. Faint smokey, sweet malty, tinny aroma. Smokey, mildly sweet malty body. Smooth palate a little tinny. An ok stout. jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2002
Almost black, nice light brown head. Subdued nose of roasted malt,coffee and maybe chocolate? Thin to medium bodied, kind of watery with notes of roasted barley and maybe some coffee hints but not alot going on. Very smooth with some oaty characteristics at the end. Needs work.

This is a beer I could drink too much of if not careful. Very easy to drink, wonderful coffee notes.

good looking stout - very dark with a slight red colour.
Aroma of grains, roast malt and coffee.
has a very thin palate fora beer claiming to be an oatrmeal stout.
taste of dark malt , lots of coffe notes ,burnt fruit with slightly sour aftertaste and a thin mouthfeel.
worth buying a bottle if easily available in your area but probably not worth searching for.

nice sweet stout. too clean a finish. maybe could use a little more body. not bad. VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 5, 2002
Dark mahogany with a thin tiny bubbled tan head. Steady carbonation. Aroma of grains, roasted malt, light coffee and soap. Thinnish body upfront. Black malt twang and a dry finish. Again, not much depth of flavor besides the black malt and a light coffee aftertaste. Carbonation remains steady. Best before date : 12/02. This is just too thin, especially since they claim it’s an oatmeal stout. The slightest trace of oats is tasted in the finish, along with a sourish note. This is another yawner in my book.

Nice color and head, but too thin tasting. Also, very heavy on the coffee flavor. A tad disappointing. MMM...Beer (385) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 17, 2002
I put this right even with Samuel Smith’s Oat meal stout. It was very hard for me to decide which one I like better. They’re both different from eachother but overall I like them the same.
