Slight sweet with a richly roasted grain and chocolate flavour. The oats make their presence knwn in the uniquely smooth silkiness of our beer. the Skullrock’s profile is complex with 6 different malts and toasted oats, and balanced by a single aromatic English hop addition.

Pours black with a small, off-white head. Aroma is of roast malts and coffee. Taste echoes the aroma, with the roast malts especially coming alive quite nicely. Dry finish, dominated by the coffee taste. Very satisfying.

3.6
piscator34 (2534) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 20, 2016
Draft. Near black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of wet espresso grounds and vanilla. Flavors are a nice combination of coffee, mild ash, toasted hazelnut and cacao nibs. Light bodied and highly drinkable. Very dry for a "Sweet stout" in my opinion.

[7918-20151112] Mini-growler. Light crusty charcoal aroma. Slightly hazy, dark brown mahogany body with a quick foamy tan head. Roasty bread crumbs and toasted grains. Medium body. Good, easy to drink. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

3.9
robinvboyer (4677) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014
Dark brown pour, not totally black. Small beige head. Sweet, very roasty aroma. Subtle notes of vanilla and coffee, with some earthy hops. Good carb, solid mouth feel. The finish is incredibly roasty and satisfying. Some nuttiness, and coffee, with a great lingering roastiness and a medium bitterness. A great solid stout.

3.4
Ferris (15426) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
Draft - Sweet dark roast with a light touch of coffee. Dirty brown with a decent brown head. Medium roast, light coffee and some dark fruit. Pretty mellow for an oatmeal, but very drinkable.
