3.38/5  rDev -14.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

22oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Pours dark brown nearly black with a big brown head that fades to a ring and leaves lacing on the glass.

S: The nose starts with big notes of cocoa and smoke and then the hops show up in the background.

T: The taste is very similar to the nose with decent notes of chocolate, smoke, and citrusy hops.

M: The feel is medium and creamy.

O: This is a very average, at best, Oatmeal Stout and one I probably would pass up if I saw it on the shelves. Not the biggest fan of too much hops in my stouts and this one had just a bit too much.

Poured from a nitro tap into a pint glass. It has a completely black with no light transparency appearance with a solid inch of tan micro sized bubble head. It has a mocha coffee nose. It has a real dark chocolate taste with roasted malt notes. It has a thick and creamy mouth feel. Overall nice oatmeal stout and a nice find.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Very deep brown color with a dark beige head in the snifter. Plenty of carbonation though a little weak in the head. Pleasant aroma of chocolate and dark grains. Rich malty flavor but a lighter mouthfeel. Quite sudsy and silky and easy to drink. Not so sweet, with an expansive variety of roasted malt flavors from caramel to blackened. Bitter chocolate in the aftertaste.

Somewhat woody after some sipping. Thoroughly drinkable big stout. A nice balance of sweet malt with the charred barley and bitter hoppy twang. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Wine World and Spirits in north Seattle.

22oz into a tulip. Pours a deep rich brown w/ a thin mocha head.

Aroma is rich and chocolatey. Dry cocoa, bitter roasted malt, a hint of dark fruit.

Taste is likewise chocolatey and dry; cocoa, bittersweet chocolate, and bitter roasted malt. Nice sharp bitter bite on the finish.

Mouthfeel is dry and velvety smooth. Goes down easy.

Overall a really nice, easy-drinking oatmeal stout. Well done American.

I bought a bottle of Caboose Oatmeal Stout in a bottle shop. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours an opaque black color with a creamy two-tone mocha colored head.

Smell is a sweet liquor aroma. Like a coffee liquor.

Taste is a roasted grain and chocolate flavor, with a bit a bourbon flavored finish.

Mouthfeel is thick and smooth, slightly cloying, semi-sweet chocolate aftertaste.

Over all a good oatmeal stout. I would have this again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured 75% of the bomber into a big ol over sized snifter,

A - Color is deep dark roasty brown, near black, poured somewhat aggressively, achieving a finger of dense, nice chocolate colored head, strong retention and lacing.

S - sweet chocolate malts, roasty dark chocolate, mild burnt/smokey aromas,

T - Sweet dark cohoclates, fairly bitter roasty with a nice oat flavor - flavors are rather bright. Little sweet molasses type flavors. Minimally mediciney/alcohol traces but no burn, nicely drinkable.

M - Full bodied, very minimal carbonation and smoooth. Enjoyable to sip but not difficult to drink at a steady pace. Mouthfeel is really ideal.

O - Awesome combination of flavor and ideal mouthfeel. Exceeded expectations.

Bought a 22 and poured into a stein, that was all my parents had at their house. Guess I better get them a set of glassware for Christmas.

A - Beautiful, rich, black color with a less than impressive brown head. Although, it did leave great color in the lace as I drank my way thru it.

S - Sort of typical stout aroma but I picked up on the alcohol. I didn't get as much oatmeal as I expected.

T - I really enjoyed the roasty flavor. It was a bit more bitter than other stouts I've tasted recently but it was by no means a turn off. Dark chocolate flavor was present on my palate.

M - Lower carb, smooth viscosity,

Overall, a pretty decent oatmeal stout. I'm not an oatmeal stout connessiour but I think it would please most looking to enjoy one over the cold holidays. I would purchase again.

A fine stout, I would like the chocolate finish a bit stronger but over all this is definitely worth visiting again. I wish it was a bit colder this evening, Stouts are perfect for a cold evening and a fireplace. I'll take some back to Texas in January to see what the boys say.
