Thanks to Bob, Michelle, and mostly my baby Jana for the 12th annual Indiana Microbrewers Festival today! On tap @ the fest. Nose of coffee, vanilla, oats, and flowers. The beer is black. The fully lasting brown creamy head leaves good lace. The brew is very well balanced, and has moderate acidity. The long finish is of espresso. The full soft body is creamy and the finish feels dry. Lafayette was definitely the biggest surprise today! I made a new friend. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2007
When held up to natural light, one can see that this has a very dark brown body. Its tan head lingers none too long. There’s a bunch of oats in the aroma, perhaps to be expected since the grain bill contains 10% oatmeal. This is complemented by lightly roasted malt and some bittersweet chocolate. Nice and smooth to drink, it tastes of roasted malts with a touch of barley, oats, and milk chocolate. A nutty/earthy bitterness enters midway though and lasts into the finish. Pretty decent.shigadeyo (3761) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2007

Event: DarkLord Day 2007
Location: Three Floyds Brewing Co. Parking Lot
Serving: Sampled from a growler shared by some generous person. Thanks whoever you are!
Aroma: Reminds me of those no-bake cookies chocolate and oats.
Flavor: Creamy milk chocolate and some fruitiness. Not really that sweet, but not overly bitter either. About the sweetness level of a plain bowl of oatmeal.
Palate: Smooth and mellow.
Overall: Easy to drink. A decent Oatmeal Stout and better than most...

9/25/2007: Black Angus Oatmeal Stout is near black in color, opaque, and has no head. The aroma is a wonderful blend of smoky charred malt and chocolate. The flaovr is creamy and smooth and contains caramelized malt, some fruit in the mid-palate, chocholate, and some char. There is also a hint of meaty smoke. The body is medium and a touch thin on the palate. Overall this is a pretty solid stout.

Sampled from a growler at DarkLord Day, thanks anonymous person. Pours a murky brown with a small head. Chocolate nose, not picking out much else. Light chocolate flavors with a smooth palate. Not very sweet for a sweet stout, and actually finishes a little dry ... but a decent stout none the less. AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2007
Had this on draft on a recent road trip. Served in a pub pint glass.
Appears a very dark brown with a good one inch head on top. Looks good.
Smell is roasted oats and malts.
Taste is roasted oats with some molasses. Mouthfeel is really thick/creamy and smooth. Little to no carbonation to speak of.
This is a good offering and a very good representation of the style. It goes down very easy and with no signs of the alcohol content. Which makes this a very sessionable beer. DrnkMcDermott (3123) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Sampler-sized draft at LBC Black as road tar... no, that sounds unpleasant... well, black. A thin head owed partly to LBC’s lower carbonation levels across the line. A silky, creamy texture that does not mask the stout’s bitterness and a bit of driness. In other words, there are characteristics of nearly every kind of stout at work here.

Draught during my Great Lakes area brew tour. Black pour with some ruby, small white head. The nose is of oats and chocolate. The oats are definitely in the flavor, but not as strong as other stouts of this style. The chocolate character is well rounded and appropriately sweet. A bit of bitterness is noticeable in the form of elusive, piny hops. The finish is dusty but mainly sweet like milk chocolate. The mouthfeel was reasonably silky with a fairly low level of carbonation. Had this for breakfast on a Thursday. What a great way to start the day!

From a growler. Just about opaque black with a small frothy tan head. Coffee and chocolate evident in the aroma, a touch of oatmeal and caramel. Medium bodied, low carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. The flavor was malty mocha with a hint of oats. Pretty good stout.
