Oatmeal Stout on nitro tap at Portsmouth Brewery Oct 25th 2008.
Opaque black with two fingers of creamy soft khaki head. Sheets and waves of lace decorate the glass. Gorgeous.
Scent is chocolate, coffee, fruit, citric hops, and a slight roasty quality.
Taste is fruity and sweet. A vry slight hint of chocolate and coffee. Mildly roasty. Citric finish with a very light bitterness. Hints of sourness on the sides of the tongue. Sweet fruit flesh. I actually taste sweet fleshy pears and apples. Surprising how fruity this is for an oatmeal stout...
Mouth is creamy, soft and velvety.
Drinkability is very good.
A soft delicious sweet creamy stout. Surprisingly fruity however. Fresh fleshy sweet fruit seems to dominate and is stronger than the chocolate or coffee notes. Reminiscent of Portsmouth's Dirty Blonde with the fruity flavors and I idly wonder if some of the Dirty Blonde fell into the Oatmeal Stout and drowned? I guess I would prefer a bit less fruit and a bit more emphasis on the roasty, coffee and chocolate flavors, though this is rather unique. Still, a tasty beer.

22oz. bottle poured into a weizen glass.
Appearance: Dark brown with a very nice 2" head that recedes to a cap and leaves excellent lacing.
Smell: Roasted malt with hints of chocolate and coffee.
Taste: Rich taste of creamy mocha, just well executed to style.
Mouthfeel: Strong point for this beer is it's creamy texture. Clean on the palate and smooth.
Overall: Again an excellent example for the style.

First had: on tap at Portsmouth
Poured a solid black color with a small ringlet of tan bubbles for a head. Basic stouty aroma, dark roasty malts, small hints of coffee and cocoa. More of the same in the taste, dark malts, fairly roasty, coffee bitterness, a little earthiness, and a bit of tea-like astringency. Pretty bland and underwhelming overall. Mouthfeel was pretty thin, especially for an oatmeal stout, body was about medium. Not a very good stout, IMO, and I'm pretty sure someone with a homebrew extract kit could make something as good if not better.
