This was the first (and a rare) instance in which my notes directly corresponded with Jackson’s: light body, very smooth, touch oily, drying in the finish. I like it, but it’s not a knockout.

Blandest oatmeal stout I’ve had yet.

Texture was solid, but on the whole the Smith’s version pummels this one. Try this one first, then the other, and you’ll see what I mean. Oat flavor is not nearly distinctive enough in the Young’s version. A good hint of maple syrup, but I’m not sure that is really appropriate.

I rated this a 4.1 on 4/4/2001 without writing anything. This is a thick rich flavorful beer. I’ll hav to have another.

My favorite milk stout. Creamy body with just enough sweetness to balance with the chocolate malt. Finishes nicely.

Probably one of the weakest stouts in my opinion. Just not a lot of character there. Thick to the hilt though.

Yeasty and with subtle aromatics and flavors of the non-roast variety all too rare for the style.
