JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2010 Dark black pour. Sikly texture. Soft maltiness and a fairly restrained roasty aorma. A little but of dusty cocoa. A little bit of a berryish fruit note on the back. Soft and a little bit oaty. It’s a pretty nice brew. Tap at HDG. Dark black beer, thin head. Aroma is fairly chocolatey with a cola-like herbal malt character. Light sweetness. Flavour is only okay, thin-bodied despite the light oaty flavour. Meh, really dry tasting... works better as a dry stout, but it would still only be average. 7 4 6 2 12

On tap at the brewery. I don’t care for stouts, no surprises here. Smooth and dark.

shadey (2096) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 29, 2006
Black pour with light cream white head. Aroma is mildly roasty. Flavor is roasty, not too bitter.Nice oatmeal body. Standard oatmeal stout, but there is nothing wrong with that.

dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2006
On tap at the brew pub in Troy. Pours a nice black-brown with a very slight tan head - could’ve been the pour however. Aroma is strongly roasted malt, with some chocolate. Taste is upfront bitter chocolate, fading to a bitter coffee flavor. Not lacking in the hops department. As the other reviewer stated (only one other reviewer? - weird - go check out these beers, guys!) it is a little slight on the palate for an oatmeal stout, but its creamy and very drinkable.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 5, 2006
A bit thin for an oaty, but this is some damn tasty beer. With some more body and a bit deeper flavor I could get behind the "world’s best " hype.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2007 In short: Insipid “dirty” black beer
How: Tap at brewpub. Jul 2006 (2.2/5). Re-sampled Dec 2007 (2.3/5)
The look: Brown-black body with a little tan ring of foam
In long: A little toasted malts but barely any roastiness. Thin body. A little creamy brown cake, some old dry peanut shells and some caramel roaming in the back. Not very flavourful and the little flavour it had felt “dirty”. Gold Medal at the 2004 San Diego World Beer Cup?!?!!! Hard to believe, unless what they served me in December 2007 is the actual gold-medal winning batch brewed in 2004.

muzzlehatch (4922) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2006
Draught sample at the brewpub. Touch of head doesn’t last long at all atop a translucent dark brown body....luscious chocolaty aroma, hints of rum and dark nutty liqueurs, a bit milky with light roast, overall excellently balanced....on the tongue, dry, thin and fairly flavorless, with a touch of sour cherry, dry wood chips, a bit of stale chocolate and some sour milk towards the finish....thin, undercarbonated, overattenuated, this was a disappointment given the overall strong quality of the beers on this occasion.

ABUSEDGOAT (2683) - California, USA - AUG 27, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2005 Tap @ brewpub: black body, roasted coffee dominates aroma. Hints of chocolate and oats. Flavor is exactly the same. Nothing really rewarding or interesting.
