Beer Camp #45, Oatmeal Stout, pours an opaque black, and it is capped by a dark brown head that provides plenty of lacing. Dark flavors of mocha and chocolate lead way to darker fruit flavors like cherries and plums. The flavor follows the same dark flavor profile. Roasted malt, coffee, and just a touch of molasses mix with dark fruits and a bit of booze across the palate. The malt adds a bit of creaminess in this full-bodied, moderately carbonated ale.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of double-chocolate milkshake is quite intense and very enjoyable. Taste is dominated by chocolate milkshake notes with light dry roasted malt notes also noticeable. Some light dark chocolate and mocha notes are also perceptible. Body is full with nice chewy creamy texture with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed and quite a treat that I wouldn’t mind having on a regular basis.

Drank from my Duvel tulip

A - Pours a deep Mahogany colour with a cream coloured head the reduces quickly.

S - Dark fruits and sweet molassis and a little smoke.

T - Plenty of roasted malt a little sweet caramel and chocolate. The finish ios long and molassis.

M - Medium to full body with minimal carbonation, slightly zingy on the finish.

O - A solid stout without complexity. Not a lot wrong with it, but won't wow you.

A- Black body with a nice tan head. Tiny head bubbles.

A- Soft creamy smelling stout. Light sweet roasted caramel.

T- Creamy sweet, with a sharp bitterness from both hops and roasted malts. Alcohol in the finish.

M- Very creamy body, yet still somewhat sharp. Pours very thick. Light carbonation with very small almost nitro bubbles.

D- Enjoyable brew, definitely on the heavier side of stouts.

355ml bottle purchase from Leura Cellars. Belatedly realised that it's 9% ABV. Wow.

Pours a deep but relatively clear and unhazed black-brown, with a solid and firm head of mocha. Body looks quite fluid, and as though it has little true weight behind it. Carbonation is fine however, and forms in pleasant rivulets when tilted. It's a good looking beer.

Nose is pleasant and sweet, but without a big richness, fullness, or even a chewiness like I'd expect from the oatmeal addition. Some mild dark fruity tones like cherry, red grapes or chocolate coated berries, and a faint hint of something smouldering in the background. It's nice, but not as robust as it might have been, especially for 9% ABV.

Taste is similar. It has a firm, rich basis which provides something mellow and solid, but it doesn't delve into anything deeper. There's no true sweetness, no palate-filling luxuriance, and not a great deal of complexity. But what it has is good: solid rich roasted malts, chocolate overtones and that firm persistent basis, which is nothing to scoff at. Faint hints of seaweed linger on the aftertaste.

Feel is light, indeed here the lack of complexity is probably showing the beer's weakest point.

This is a good beer that really could have been magnificent. It has a great deal of power and robustness to it, and it's built on a firm and pleasant structure. But it's really missing something, especially for a beer weighing in this heavily. I guess when you're disappointed in Sierra Nevada, you still end up with a pretty good package.
