Captain Bastard's pours a black color with a tan lacing head. There is a nice creamy and sweet aroma with some notes of oats. The taste was creamy and sweet, good lactose sugar flavors, nice oat flavors. The body was very light, and the flavor was watery. Overall its tasty but weak and watery.

Black colored beer with a medium sized brown head that doesn't last.
Smells of chocolate and patent malt. There is a strange menthol scent to this. Hint of smoke.
Starts out semi-sweet with a big chocolate taste. Lesser taste of coffee and toasted grain. The taste is more like that of a milk stout. This does have little chocolate milk flavor to it.
Mouthfeel is good.
Overall this damn easy to drink. Manages to get a decent taste and mouthfeel out of a 4% beer.

on draft at squatter's pub at slc airport
appearance - a bit light, like a brown ale, with deep ruby edges. very little head that dissipated very quickly.
smell - toasted bread, light cocoa, dried nuts. very little roast.
taste - this is where the beer jumps out. perhaps others have had older bottles, but i was quite happy with the flavor. more toast, stronger chocolate, macadamia nuts and some light, sweet caramel malt. while light, this beer is ultimately pretty enjoyable. the bartender tells me that utah law caps the ABV, and i think they do a great job given the gravity restriction. suggesting that they add more malt here ignores the limits within which they work.
mouthfeel - here they could have done a bit more. the beer is pretty thin, which is quite disappointing for an oatmeal stout. i don't get any of the hop or roast bitterness some others describe - just some smooth lingering flavor without any notable body.
overall - despite the criticisms, this is on the whole an enjoyable and flavorful beer that showcases that even within such strict confines, very good beer can emerge. i'd be curious to see what the brewer produced without an ABV cap.
