12oz can. Black with a creamy and smooth mocha head that drenches the sides of the glass with thick lacing. Smells of roast, cocoa, a bit of caramel and some green citrus. The roast adds a good bit of the flavor to this. The taste is similar, with a moderately flavorful mix of coffee, green citrus and then a flush of sweetness across the back. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a soft crispness that flows easily enough but is overall coming off as a bit thin. This actually isn’t too bad and was a big step up for me from some of the other canned offerings that I’ve had from the Onion.

A - Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a one-finger, off-white head of foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled roasty with notes of chocolate and flaked oats.

T - It had a good bit of chocolate and oatmeal flavor. Nice bitterness with a late developing roastiness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. Medium bodied ale.

O - This is my first Wild Onion brew. I really enjoyed it. Nicely done.

can into tulip glass.

Appearance: black bodied beer with a large mocha brown head that stays around for a long time.

Smell: robust roasty, and oaty notes with a touch of malt sweetness in the form of chocolates.

Taste: fresh roasty coffee with a low bitterness level and a touch of smoke and milk chocolate. Hint of earthy hops. The finish is slightly sweet mostly of milk chocolates. Decent balance in the flavor profile of this beer throughout; even though its not too complex. Pretty straight forward oatmeal stout.

Mouthfeel: high end of low bodied beer. moderately carbonated. A bit thin for a stout. a touch of silkiness is imparted from the oats.

Overall: Wild onion did what they said they were going to do with this beer. really solid local beer offering right here. It honestly exceeded by expectations. Nice job wild onion! Make this a beer thicker and more silky; then this beer will have a cult following.

This is a pretty nice oatmeal stout. Nice oat tones...does that make any sense really? Mild roasted tones give a nice accent that puts it a step up. Smooth character. Consistent delivery. I like this beer. I think it's well done and evenly balanced.

A - Dark brown/black. Tons of head. Lots of bubbles fighting to top of glass.

S - Very good smell. Hops and chocolate dominate.

T - Not as much as in the smell. Chocolate first, then some hops. A touch of roastiness to round it out.

M - This is what ruins this one for me. Waaay too much carbonation. Very much so distracts from the taste. A medium/light body doesn't help either.

O - I can't look beyond the mouthfeel for this one. Too bad because their is something quite pleasant about the smell of this one.
