A: Pours a clear yet opaque jet black in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation at the surface and some light amounts of cola brown highlights. The beer has a finger and a half tall dense creamy mocha head that very slowly reduces to a medium patch of medium thickness including some larger bubbles, a very thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface, and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of roasted malts with some light hints of oats and chocolate.

T: Upfront there are strong flavors of roasted malts with some light notes of dark chocolate and oats. There is a light amount of sweetness along with a touch of anise/licorice in the finish. Some light hints of alcohol and light bitterness as well.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth with just a hint of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: Slightly lighter in the body than some others in the style as well as the relatively well hidden alcohol make this one drink a lot smaller than it really is (surprised that it is 9% ABV). Enjoyable but I could only really have one during a single session.

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.
