IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2008
On Tap at Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery. Dark pour. Aroma of roasted malt and light burntness. Taste was of strong coffee, and a little chocolate towards the end. I didnt get a lot of oat flavor in this one for some reason. Medium to light body. Seemed to have too much coffee flavor fpr style. May not buy again but was still pretty tasty.

Draft: pours dark black, burnt coffee, chocoalte, malt aroma, taste is a bit like sour coffee with some malt backbone, fairly thin mouthfeel for a stout which is always disappointing to me. Still, this was the best thing I had while at Town Hall.

Black like a stout with tan head that disappears and no lacing, definitely no nitro. Smell is clean vanilla, milk and dark chocolate, not overly sweet, flavar starts thee same, becomes fairly lactic, smoky and woody amd bitter root or bark as it recedes....which is taking a very long time this one.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 20, 2011
On tap at Town Hall. Dark brown with ruby lowlights and a creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and fake chocolate. Body is a tad thin and tastes of semi-sweet roasted malt and mild chocolate but mostly just roasted barley and roasted malt. Finishes up a tad dry.

On tap at TH 20Aug2012, Of course it looks great, and smells great but the body is too thin, the oats dont seem to add much to make it smoother, fuller or creamier.. your average roast flavor makes this a solid beer but not superb

maekchu (3764) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2012
On tap at Town Hall Brewery. Good mild chocolate and sweet roast aroma. Black. Mild creamy chocolate flavors; some balance in mid palate; final peters out rather quickly. Smooth, medium body, and a bit fizzy. Okay. Tasty. but nothing special.

Growler. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong roasted malt, chocolate, wood. Medium mouth feel, similar flavors to nose, very sweet, light vanilla, good.

A very dark brew with a nice tan head. Nose is heavy on the roasty toasty malts but the is an underlying graininess that lends some depth to this.It was just a little thin for me but very enjoyable.

on tap at town hall brewery. Almost black with a dark tan head. Very thin compared to other oatmeal stouts I have had. Just not much taste. Didnt offend though.
