Cask at the Sunset Saloon 4/27/06. Pours a dark oily black color with a tan creamy head. Nose is light chocolate sweet and dark malts. Palate is the cask creaminess and smooth finish. Flavors of dark malt and light roast, some sweet sugary notes and light chocolate.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2006
Pours a rich deep black, thick and oily, with a nice initial brown head that fades slowly. This is bottle conditioned and has a nice yeast sediment on the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is loaded with tons of roasted barley with some light hints of NW hops. Aroma reinded me of troegs oatmeal, except troegs has a bit more hop character. The flavor is so damn smooth and rich with tons of roasted barley, lots of sweet crystal and chocolate malts. Leaves a very smooth creamy almost oily mouthfeel. This is one of the best oatmeal stouts I have ever had.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAR 24, 2006
(Bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/massachusetts/w target=blank>Julios Liquors) Has a very dark coffee brown body with a tan head. Strong aroma of coffee plus some chocolate. Spotty lacing. Mouthfeel smooth, oily, full. Flavor is strongly coffee, touch of sweet chocolate. Mildly bitter finish. Good coffee stout.

JugOPunch (83) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 10, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2006 12oz bottle: Aroma is mixture of chocolate roasty malt and a bit of coffee. Flavor is rich with more choco-coffee and a nice slight hop backing. Much more body than the Sam Smith Oatmeal I just had and overall a deeper more layered flavor. Very smooth velvety mouthfeel and very drinkable. This approaches outstanding but doesnt quite get there. A little too text book to really be a great stout.

This was a weird experience. I went to pop the bottle cap off the bottle, and instead of just the cap, the top of the bottle came off with it. We ended up opening and new one and testing from that but, in the interest of not wasting beer, we filtered the broken one through a coffee filter into a glass. The Oatmeal Stout pours a beautiful medium black with a small light-brown head. Muddy body. Aroma is of light malt with hints of bread, specifically marble rye. Initial taste is both sweet and bitter, finishing sweet. Medium oily feel on the mouth with soft carbonation and a somewhat chalky feel.

Rastacouere (6176) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2005
Absolutely remarkable lacing takes formation above the akin to black glow. Dense dark foam lingers forever. Tartish, highly grainy aromas seem to come through a severely burnt toasted breadiness. This characteristic ultimately procures anisey nuances, but leads to a shortcut from apparent complexity. It remains pleasant through and through, hinting insistently at mocha and insisting on the roasty character enough to be very distinctive. No fruitiness involved, but major hopping involves an unexpected dryness that overshadows the oatmeal contribution and brings forth a surprisingly balanced citric/floral aspect. Finishes long, dry yet malty, particularly assertive in dark bitter malt flavors. Eh! I kept on this one for 18 months and it may have been brewed for a while already back then, but it held the run like a champion if not for the incoherences between the malt flavors and rather airy, highly bubbly and slightly thinned out palate. Kudos!

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Bottle. Pours jet black with a durable brown head. Aroma is roasty with chocolate and cola. Taste is very roasty, almost burnt (yum) with some espresso and a decent hop bite. Pretty smooth oatmeal taste also.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2005 Bottle. Fairly thin for a stout, but is has some good flavour. Roasted mocha flavours dominate aswell as chocolate. Pretty soft and easy going as far as stouts go, pleasant.
