Great oatmeal Stout, thick and sweet.

However, not enough carbonation for me. Otherwise, just what you'd expect, with a round, strong beer, with oat sweetness almost like condensed milk. Some bitterness (from the malt?) giving an impression of coffee.

Good oatmeal Stout, but I like Anderson valley better (personal opinion)

3.11/5  rDev -20.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 3.25

Bottle: 11.2 fluid ounce, dated 04/07/14
Consumed: 08/21/15, Northern California

Appearance: Dark brown, almost black. Thick pour. No head whatsoever (in spite of a high pour at end). No lacing. This may be particular to this bottle since others have reported two fingered heads and some lacing. This negatively impacted my review.

Smell: Cocoa, coffee, fruit elements

Taste: Dry chocolate initial with nice bitter finish. Silky texture.

Overall: It may have the potential to be a high scoring stout, but I think my bottle may have suffered from aging or some inconsistency in the brewing process that was particular to this batch. Will try again and possibly revise. Almost complete lack of carbonation reduced scores for Look, Taste, Feel, and Overall.

Dark brown, near black body with a thin beige collar. Aromas of roast, char, chocolate, molasses. Rich and dark. Chocolate and leather, with ample dark roast character. Sweet, dark fruits soaked in booze. Not getting the oatmeal character here. Medium thick body with low carbonation. Pretty good.

oatmeal stouts are WAY different over "there" than they are here..... apparently?
thick, got that bitter English twist. love me an oatmeal stout but this is different than what I was expecting. dated nov 2013, within its 2 year recommendation..... it's alright.

Enjoyed from the 12 oz bottle in a snifter, this nice double oatmeal stout pours a deep dark brown to the edges and black in the middle with a thin head, light retention, and light lacing. Nose of dark chocolate, sweet toffee, light coffee, and some licorice. flavors are sweet malts up front, light cloying sweetness, combined with a bitter dark chocolate and black licorice component that leaves a moderate bitterness to the back and aftertaste with decent alcohol warmth. Very coating mouth feel. Solid with light carbonation makes it a decent sipper in the stout world.

On tap at Brasserie V in Madison, Wisconsin.

A- Dark black body. Pitch black darkness. Two finger mocha head. Nice retention. No lacing. Looks very substantial and dark. [4.25]

S- Cocoa, roast malt, espresso, earth, slight dark fruit. A bit of booze. This one isn't the strongest nose out there, even as it warms. It's a bit dull and subdued. [3.5]

F- Rich baker's chocolate, espresso. A slight bit of booze. Caramel. Roasted malt sweetness. Milk chocolate sweetness. And a bit more booze. Not a ton of complexity, but this is rich enough. [3.75]

M- Substantially silky and thick mouthfeel, on the thicker side of medium body. Just the right amount of carbonation. Sticky, but not too resinous and certainly a bit on the hot side. So, silky smooth but runs a bit hot. [3.5]

O- Solid double oatmeal stout. Rich on the palate, subdued on the nose, silky on the finish, but ultimately a bit too much heat that takes away from the rest of the beer. Still, this is a tasty beer that I wouldn't think twice about drinking again if offered. [3.75]

Final score: 3.70

11.2 ounce bottle, bottled on 7 NOV 2013, label says best enjoyed within 2 years. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a 1/4 inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The brew smells like roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice, and some oats. The taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, but there's also some vanilla, molasses and a bit of dark fruit noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. The 9.6% ABV of this brew is hidden well, it's enjoyable and easy to drink. I liked this brew, it's certainly worth a try if you've never had it before. $5.79 a bottle.

Updated from a 3.5 'Had' rating. Bottle date is 11-7-13.

Appearance - Just about black with some light poking through towards the bottom. Thick tan head retains nicely at a full cap, leaving some lace.

Smell - Chocolate, oats, caramel, dark fruit, coffee and roasted tones. Nice.

Taste - Good, but a bit of a step down from the scent. Good mix of chocolate, roast and raisin lead the way, sweetened coffee, molasses and light grassy hop there as well.

Mouthfeel - A touch on the watery side but smooth, lowish carbonation. Not much alcohol noticeable, quite drinkable for nearly 10%.

Overall - Liked it better this time around. It's a little unremarkable, but good.

330ml bottle, a Double Oatmeal Stout. A contract brewery with an amusingly difficult name to pronounce - and what's with the 'best before 25 years' aging statement? Really?

This beer pours a solid, maybe less than abysmal, brown-tinted black, with subtle basal cola highlights, and a measly half finger of creamy, bubbly beige head, which leaves some weird moose antler lace around a portion of the glass as things slowly sink away.

It smells of musty cocoa nibs, toasted bready caramel malt, cream, gritty raw breakfast oats, mild earthy hops, and a touch of simmering alcohol. The taste is a nice blend of bittersweet chocolate and grainy caramel malt, supple cooked and cooled oatmeal, more earthy, floral, and slightly perfumed hops, and a twinge of metallic alcohol.

The carbonation is present, but rather innocuous, the body a middling (sorry) medium weight, fairly smooth, and generally quite creamy, the oatmeal not to be denied here. It finishes off-dry, the caramel and chalky cocoa still caught in a licit embrace, doing well to quell the burgeoning booziness.

A pleasant enough amped-up oatmeal stout - I'm just glad that as they rousted the alcohol, they didn't forget the oatmeal component. Enjoyable, as noted, and drinkable, if you focus more on the silken body, and not the bursting at the seams warming nature.

Got this one at the Slijter down the road. Originally reviewed the first batch a year ago, which was bottled 13 March 2012, but thought I'd review the newest batch in lieu of their new Bourbon version of this.

From a bottle into a snifter
Bottled on 12 March 2013
Brewed and bottled at De Molen in Bodegraven

APPEARANCE: A transparent brown pour yields a two finger, medium looking, tan head with very good retention. Black body with medium levels of carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a full foam cap and sticky to the sides of the glass. A splotchy wisp remains and leaves some nice lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Medium strength nose of roasted malts, dark, pure chocolate and oats for sure. Cocoa powder as well as a touch of sweet cream. Nice and balanced stuff.

TASTE: Roasted malts, dark chocolate and some sharp oat flavors up front. Moves into a roasted, cocoa and oat finish with notes of sweet cream and vanilla. Big and lingering aftertaste is roasted with plenty of oats and some notes of bitter dark chocolate. Quite flavorful and the oats are definitely forward, much like the nose.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Nicely creamy smooth, goes down smooth and finishes somewhat dry on the palate. Enough weight and very creamy smooth from the oats.

OVERALL: This is a good beer that I've had quite a few times here. These guys have started out on the right foot and I hope they continue on the path they've chosen, as I will certainly continue to support them. This one has got the complexities and flavor profile to hold strong against some of the other well-made oatmeal stouts out there, and this year's batch seems to be a little thicker and heavier on the palate than last year's. Cheers for this one fellas! Recommended.

Thanks to Jeffo for hooking me up with several of these! Dark brown, nearly black pour with a two finger caramel-colored head with decent retention and great lacing. Nice roasty nose with hints of cocoa, dark chocolate, subtle espresso, and oats. The taste is roasty as well with hints of cocoa, dark chocolate, espresso, molasses, oats, and a touch of vanilla. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly thick, with a subtle creaminess and a great dry bitter finish. Overall, this is a really solid offering that is crazy drinkable for an almost 10% beer. Hope these new guys keep up their stellar work!

A: The beer is very dark brown in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dark tan head that quickly died down, leaving lacing on the surface and the sides of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Moderate aromas of caoco and roasted malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of bitter dark chocolate along with hints of sweetness and bitterness.
M: It feels a little more than medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. There are some hints of warming from the alcohol.
O: This beer hides its alcohol very well because you only really notice a little warming from it in the mouthfeel. It is really drinkable until the alcohol starts sneaking up on you.

This bottle ended up being my BA review # 1000. In a hotel room in Rome out of a hotel glass.

Bottle date. 13/03/12

A - Black with a lot (3 fingers) of bubbly light brown head. A slight gusher.

S - Roast, sweet oatmeal, semi sweet chocolate.

T - A big bitterness up front that gives way to roast and char flavours. The mid-palate adds sweet oatmeal and chocolate. The finish has a touch of espresso and is long and bitter. ABV is slightly warming.

M - Medium body, light to moderate carbonation.
