10/13/12: Bottle poured into a frozen mug (yes, I know).

Dark-coffee black appearance with a moderate brown, creamy head that dissipates quickly.

Sweet, doughy flavors with a hint of roasted grains and chocolate.

Fairly flat and bitter with only a subtle malty taste. The nuances seem lacking.

Good body with a little more carbonation than I would prefer. Flavor lingers for 30-60 seconds.

Overall, this beer looks and smells more promising than it's taste which is fairly undistinguished. But it still beats water.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Samuel Adams pint glass.

A - Black body with a light brown, creamy head. Low retention, medium lacing. Average stout appearance

S- Deep toasted malt, dark chocolate, slight hoppy background

T- Well balanced and flavorful. Roasted coffee, deep toasted malt, fading into a bitter chocolate-vanilla aftertaste.

M- Pretty thick with low carbonation.

This stout is a classic in my book. It has all the characteristics that I desire in a stout. Tasty and robust.

12oz bottle, Bruery tulip, freshness date looks to have been rubbed off.

Very dark, mere droplet of garnet in the bottom, at stem of glass. Scant head in medium brown, it is, however velvety.

Bit of iron, very dark roast, and Hershey-like chocolate.

Chocolate malt, burnt toffee, rich but thin.

Like I just said, it's thin, but that doesn't detract from a rich flavor and velvet texture.

This is really an excellent Oatmeal Stout. It's rich without being too much; a great example of a below 5% beer with mounds of flavor. Two tongues up!

Pours dark with medium head. Roasty chocolate aroma, some sweetness. Flavor follows with big chocolate notes, some nice roast, and mild coffee. Does not finish with much bitter to balance the sweetness, but pretty smooth creamy mouthfeel. Found this to be a very nice stout.
