look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Brought back from Fla. by a buddy's father. Shared among 4 friends.
Aroma had a pleasant roasty character initially. It moved to a duller and less specific aroma and at the end seemed to hold a stale oxidized quality.
Poured with excessive head that was tamed with time. Very black.
Strong roast flavor that held burnt and then acrid quality. Finish also held ash flavors. Not pleasant. Flavor, feel nor body seemed to contain any oat quality.
Excessive carbonation covered a very thin body.
Ultimately not an enjoyable experience. Three of four were barely able to finish the 4 to 5 oz pour. One noted it as acceptable.
Thanks Chu.

Pours black with a beige head. Good retention. Little lacing.

Coffee and aluminum aroma. Very strange.

Lots of coffee up front. That metal aftertaste hits like I've been licking a spoon. Very astringent finish and not much complexity.

Fairly light mouthfeel with carbonation levels that are too high for the style.

This one is a mess and all over the place. Flavors aren't very complex to begin with and there are flaws in the aftertaste and mouthfeel. One of the few bottles no one wanted to finish at the end of the night.

Pours an opaque black with tons of dark brown head and large bubbles. The nose is extremely roasty with a pungent acetone note and some malt sweetness in the back. The flavor is similar, roasted and burnt with magic marker and some malt sweetness in back. The feel is light, thin in back and overly oily and slick and overly carbonated.

Poured from a bomber to a nonic glass

L: Black with light brown head. Was VERY fizzy for me; it took a while to pour as the giant head kept sticking around. Eventually settled into a nice foam.

S: Lots of coffee and chocolate with earthy fruit notes at the end from the hops. No oatmeal smell.

T: this tasted a little thin, but nice. Coffee with some earthy hops at the end with a bit of toffee, but otherwise. Not especially sweet, as I'd expect from this style. It felt more like an Irish Stout. Decided burnt taste at the end. No oatmeal flavour.

M: Sparkly, but thin. It was clean-feeling, but it lacked that smoothness you'd normally get from an Oatmeal Stout. I'd prefer a less-carbonated version.

O: Not bad, but nothing to write home about. I'd love to try it on tap, though; I think some of the things that are missing would come out more from a drought pour. But I won't seek out another bottle.

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

The pour was a murky dark black with a small (less than 1 finger) foamy light brown head that diminished in a minute or so and had fair streaky lacing.

The aroma was very mild of a roasted cereal malt and a doughy leathery yeast with notes of chocolate, coffee and flaked oats.

The taste was lightly sweet and mildly malty with a hint of chocolate and a nice creamy oat taste from the start, with the finish being lightly bitter and mildly roasty with a bit of coffee at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time following the swallow, with a mild smooth coffee flavor that was left behind to linger for just a short while longer.

Mouthfeel was a just bit above medium in body with a smooth watery texture and a soft carbonation.

Overall this was a light thin Stout with a decent roasty taste and a good drinkability...

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Pours a deep mahogany brown, not quite black but damn close. Even with an extremely hard pour there was only a handful of bubbles that formed. What little bubbles did exist stuck decently to the glass but hardly what I would call lacing.

Smell is odd, to say the least. Lots of dark fruits, almost sour but not quite. Very light acrid roast aroma mixed in with the fruits. The combination is not pleasant but not all together bad either.

Taste is better with less of the dark fruits and a little bit more chocolate. The roast isn't as bitter as the smell would make you think. It's actually not that bad by itself but that aroma sticks around and in this particular glass it is focused to my nose which just makes it worse and somewhat difficult to enjoy the good flavors.

Thinner body with light, but very much present, carbonation. I would like this to be a tad bit thicker as an oatmeal stout but it's not bad at all.

Overall, I might try this again down the road, it's a bit different but not really bad. As it is though, if I want an oatmeal stout I will probably go elsewhere.

22oz bottle

A- 22oz bottle purchased at Total Wine in Orlando. Pours a dark black color with a light tan head.

S- The aroma is roasted malt and sweet cocoa.

T- The taste like the aroma is dark roasted malts, milk chocolate and a touch of coffee as well. The taste is a little on the thin side.

M- The mouthfeel is between light and medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

O- Overall, this is a pretty average porter that I probably wouldn't purchase again.

Dark black with creamy tan head that leaves great retention and foamy lace. The smell is roasty with burnt sugar edges, dark chocolate, coffee, and smoke. The taste is ashy. Too much black patent. Perhaps others enjoy this, but there is a charcoal, burnt taste that is a bit much for me. Smoky, bitter chocolate, and roasted coffee. Quite roasty and ashy tasting. Strong with alcohol peeking through. Overall an average stout.

Received from RomaniIteDomum in the Stanley Cup BIF. 22oz bomber served in a pint glass

A: Dark, dark brown with a small amount tan head. The beer is somewhat lifeless. First pour had no lace but I got a little the second glass

S: Very small nose. There are some coffee grounds, bitter chocolate and brown sugar

T: Lots of coffee bitterness, but not really much of the flavor. Bordering on astrigent. After it warms up, the other flavors come out. These include bakers chocolate and oat flakes. Minor presence of vanilla and nutmeg

M: Medium bodied, barely. Overall thin for the style. Carbonation is a bit too high. Would like to see this smoothed out (or on nitro)

D: Decent drinking oatmeal stout. Has some minor flaws that could probably be cleaned up easily. I'd check this place out if I were in the area

22oz bomber poured into red solo cups as the good times rolled at the pavilion. Black body with a half-finger of tan head. Not much lacing, but hey, it’s a solo cup. Aroma is roasted malt, cocoa powder, and a touch of coffee - on the simple side. Flavors are similar, roasty malt sweetness leads through some cocoa and coffee bitterness. Medium body, thin texture, especially for an oatmeal stout, medium carbonation, a touch high for the style, dry finish.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: Pours black with ruby highlights and a huge large-bubble tan head. Very little lacing.

S: Coffee, dark chocolate and toffee with hops wafting in and out.

T: The taste is very refreshing. Coffee and bitter cocoa dominate from front to back, while the aftertaste is herbal toffee. I would easily rate the taste a 4 if there were a tad bit more complexity.

M: The carbonation is over the top and the large bubbles give it a rather prickly feel that doesn't lend itself well to the bitterness of the American hopping.

O: Overall this wasn't a bad oatmeal stout and was quite welcomed on Saint Patrick's Day.

Found this at the Stillwater Grille in Fort Myers, Florida, this stout is black as night with a light tan ring of bubblage on top and fair lacing. The aroma delivers definite charcoal malt with some nutty herbal hop. Solid for sure. The first mouthful brings a somewhat watery charcoal but the flavor gets fairly intense though not very complex. It’s medium bodied but the feel is more aqueous than I would like in this style with a dry surface finish. Carbonation is very minimal but okay. A fair stout, perhaps a bit forgettable.
