Pours a black color. 1/3 inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of English malt, English hops, slight sweet malt, roasted malt, slight yeast, and a hint of oatmeal. Fits the style of an Oatmeal Stout. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with a low carbonation level. There is also a noticeable dryness. Tastes of roasted malt, English hops, sweet malt, hint of yeast, and slight oatmeal. Overall, good appearance and feel, but aroma and body are more similar to an English Stout than an Oatmeal Stout and the complexity is low.

Served as part of a sampler flight

Pours a dark brown with light edges and a thin ring of haze. Subdued aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste follows the nose, with more roasted malt, chocolate, and a touch of caramel. Mouthfeel is fairly creamy, with a medium body and lower carbonation. Solid, if unimaginative, Stout. Might be good with some oysters.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - poured with a small, beige head of foam, which swirls rapidly and leaves no lace. The body is opaque and black.

S - a light aroma if caramel and roasted grain.

T - caramel up front with some sweet malt. Licorice and clove in the middle with a touch of chicory in the finish.

M - medium body, moderately low carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - kind of anemic for a stout, lacking in roasty quality. Drinkable, but just barely.

A: On-tap at Southend Brewery. Had a black color and a thick consistency. There was a half inch of creamy, tan-colored, fairly long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: Kind of a muted smell, with traces of coffee and malt.

T: Tasted of malt, coffee, and mild hints of chocolate in the finish. Not an extremely robust flavor given the style. A bit on the thin side.

M: A fair amount of carbonation with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Not exactly a terrible beer, but not very memorable either.

So I am not sure if this is the same as the Oatmeal stout. This is the specific name of the beer and I could find no cross reference with any other they sell or have sold so I assume this is a new beer or a new version of an old beer.

A: thin head, dissipates quick with little lace. Very dark but see light getting through.

S: mild roasty. Touch of toffee

T: sweet toffee up front. Roasty with mild smokey flavor, similar to the smell.

M: moderate to high carbonation. Not as full bodied as most stouts.

Overall: I think it is a good beer but not a great stout. I feel I should rate it based on taste and not its representation of its genre since I don't actually know the brewer's intentions. As this is a large restaurant brewpub I imagine it is a stout for the masses.
