I tried this beer at Meridian Pint in Washington DC served Casked with vanilla.

A: The stout was black with minimal head and lacing.

S: The beer was week on smell, but I did detect a fait roasted malt smell.

T: This beer was bitter and very slightly sweet on the back of the pallet.

M: This beer was very thin. Not what i expected when i ordered a stout.

O: this was a good beer. Glad I tried it, but would not order it again. It was lacking in flavor.

Poured a solid black with a thick white head.

The smell is roasted malts but way too subtle.

The taste was dark roasted malts and quite bitter.

The mouth feel was smooth but fairly smooth with pretty much no carbonation, as you would expect from a cask beer.

Overall it was ok, pretty one dimensional and little weak. Doubt I'd buy it again.

This is part of Oliver's new Coventry line. It is served in a tumbler, slightly chilled.

Appearance: The stout is black as night with no hint of light escaping it. There is a decent nitro head to it, giving it a nice creamy look.

Smell: The cream of the head grabs you up front. From there, there is a nice slightly sweet, roasted aroma.

Taste: The ale strikes me as more of a dry stout than an oatmeal. There is no oat creaminess in the taste, it has a much more roasted deep taste.

Mouthfeel: The stout's dryness and roast character gives it a nice mouthfeel.

Drinkability: I could take down a few of these. The creamy nitro infusion makes it especially pleasant.

Served from a firkin at Frisco Grille in Columbia, MD into a shaker pint glass at the appropriate temperature (01/14/10).

A: Pours a dark shade of brown with some mahogany highlights capped with just a few large bubbles which dissipated quickly leaving no lacing whatsoever.

S: Muted aroma of coffee and roasted malts.

T: Coffee and roasted malts are the only flavors that I'm detecting, but it seems very fresh, but slightly muted.

M: Rather light-bodied with a slick characteristic along with very subtle carbonation.

D: Quite drinkable and rather sessionable, this Oatmeal Stout is lacking in flavor and aroma.

Overall this was certainly a decent Oatmeal Stout and it seemed very fresh, but lacking in complexity, flavor, and aroma. Worth a Look.

I had this from a growler that some friends brought back from Baltimore for me a few days before.

Pours pitch black with only a few tan bubbles that rise to the top.

The smell was of some roasted grains and a hint of molasses.

The smell was of dark, sweet malt upfront. It is soon balanced by a dry bitterness. A smoky sweetness is present throughout. It seems much more a smoked porter, or an Irish Dry Stout (or a combo.) rather than an Oatmeal Stout. Not bad tasting, but doesn't fit the style well.

It thins just a bit. The mouth is left with a creamy, smoky sweetness.

It's fairly smooth and easy to drink. It's probably worth trying, as it has some solid flavors, but not if you are really in the mood for a more traditional oatmeal stout.

The beer poured black with a tan head. The aroma was of malt and hops. The taste is of sweet malt with just a nice dash of bitter. The feel was heavy and wet. A nice stout, and good example of an oatmeal stout. If you want one a bit more on the bitter side it's a good beer to try.
