Pours pitch black with a small beige head. Smells of roast, hints of chocolate, subtle hints of smoke, subtle coffee. Taste is roast, smoke, and chocolate. Light-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Oasis Lake Monster (batch 4) finishes with a subtle lingering smokiness. drjay44 (3922) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAR 31, 2017
12 oz. can. Canned 02/14/17. Pours a medium, well retained, beige head, with slight lacing, over a clear, black brown (SRM 40) body.......nose is roasted malts, with coffee, chocolate, light fruits, with slight vinous tones, minimal hops......taste is heavy roasted malts, with cocoa, chocolate and lighter coffee, moderate dried fruits with hints of raisin, plum, mild vinous notes, light vanilla, slight oak, finishing with moderate hops bitterness......mouth feel, medium body, moderate alcohol, light carbonation. This meets the basic style of a Foreign Stout nicely, and the barrel adds complexity in both aroma and flavor. It is a pleasant easy drinking beer.

Dang identical cans -- thought I’d found a can of batch 3 in the back of the fridge but this was obviously no IPA! Dark chocolate with smoke and char plus some dark fruit.

September 2016 - Can share at Leighton’s, with many thanks to our generous host. As ’Oasis Lake Monster’. Hardly any other details on the can, so you have to play the fun game of ’guess the style’. Opaque black, foamy brown head, dotted lacing. Aroma is chocolate syrup, bourbon biscuit, some cardboard. Body is quite light, smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is roast malts, toffee, ashy, resinous finish. An OK beer. Didn’t pick up much barrel character. (3.3) madmitch76 (26845) - , Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2016

Leighton’s flat clearance. Cheers to the clearance man for the can. Almost opaque brown - amber beer, patchy tan head. Palate is light and semi dry, modest fine carbonation. Coffee streaked dark malts, a little dark chocolate that gets stronger and with increasing bitterness. Smooth finish. Any barreling went unnoticed for me.
50cl bottle shared at Leighton’s garbage share. Many thanks to Leighton for this one. It pours a dark brown color with a small beige head. Aroma is roasty woody with notes of chocolate, molasses and light ashes. Taste is also roasty dark with notes of raisins, chicolate, roast wood. Medium bodied with good carbonation.
