sent to me as a novelty extra as i love older and retired beers, i was glad to see another one holding up well

completely opaque liquid coming forward in front of me. Rich dark brown notes, with a good sized head of maybe an inch in height coming over the top of it. Nice settling left behind a thin layer and a good amount of side glass lace.

The aroma was your typical oatmeal stout, though a touch more bitter then what I was expecting. Nice notes of lactose, chocolate and vinous hops. Some light grain notes as well in the finish. Rich, though not terribly filling. Lots of burnt and roasted malt flavors in here. Not as sweet as the aroma would have led me to believe it would have been, still though very solid in both bitterness and malt profile. little thin but no oxidation and i think it help up nicely.

Vintage bottle from 8/17/2006--let us see how this one is hlding up.

A-Deep brown/black with dark ruby highlights. A medium dark tan head reduces to a thin veil and leaves spotty lace.

S-Dark roasted malts with a healthy dose of chocolate and a touch of licorice and even a little smoke.

T-Rich and roasty with a ton of dark chocolate. Nice supporting grain feels almost palpable. A touch of spicy/earthy bitterness in the finish.

M-Medium bodied with a oh so smooth, velevty feel. This one lingers nice and long on the palate.

D-Still holding it's own after nearly three years! A really nicely done beer that for it's price point was quite a bargain. This is the kind of beer you should have on hand at all times! Now, if the Brother's would only bring it back!

Let's see how this one is doing. My last sixer is now one lighter. 12 ounce'er bottled on 8/17/06 and poured into my Ithaca shaker glass. The stout appears a translucent dark brown color with at least two fingers of dense ecru colored foam. The head settles to a half inch thick ring within a few minutes, leaving behind a thin lace on my glass as I sip my way to the bottom. Smells and tastes of sweet caramel, milk chocolate, medium roasted grain, toasty brown bread, more caramel, still a noticeable amount of bitter grassy hops. Dark chocolate, mocha, and sweet dates come forward as the stout warms. Mouthfeel is a tad thin for an oatmeal stout, but there is still an ample amount of carbonation. Overall, a very nice beer that needs to be brought back into rotation.

Vintage 2006 bottle, courtesy of Deuane. Poured into shaker pint glass on 9/23/08. Giddyup!

A - Black body with hazelnut accents and thin, creamy tan head that receded into patchy film and spotty lacing.

S - Roasted malts and plenty of chocolate in the nose with just a touch of black licorice and toasted oats and grains.

T - Lots of dark chocolate flavor, flaked oats, caramel malt and some earthy bitterness. This drinks like a milkshake!

M - Smooth, creamy texture with pretty lively carbonation for an oatmeal stout. Luscious, velvety mouthfeel, yet chewy and quite thick. Finish is bittersweet on the palate.

D - What a nice blast from the past! This has aged well and it is still as good as I remember it. Big thanks to Deuane for parting with one of these gems so I could review it.

Bottle courtesy of warriorsoul, thanks again!

Beer pours a dark flat black color with a tan head.

Aromas are subtle, of sweet milk chocolate, oats, dark sugars, and roasted malts.

Taste is dry, mineral like, a bit bitter, with a hint of dark cocoa. There is a clean and crisp oat flavor, and a hint of cola. Nice flavors, a bit lighter than a lot of other oatmeal stouts I have tried though.

Mouthfeel is ok, a bit thin for the style in my opinion though.

Drinkability is quite good. Not a lot of huge flavors or aromas, but this is tasty enough, and really easy to sip. I glad a got a chance to try this.

Thanks to MuenchenerKindl for this one. It pours a very dark brown, almost black color. The head is one inch in height, and tan in color. It recedes slowly into a quarter inch of lacing that lasts until the beer is gone. The aroma is of graham cracker, vanilla, and cocoa powder. The taste is like the aroma, but with a little more cocoa. It is a very nice flavor, but it seems to disappear very quickly. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a pretty high level of carbonation for a stout. Overall, this is a nice oatmeal stout, but it is not quite as hardy in both flavor and mouthfeel for my liking. I could enjoy drinking this beer again, but there are better out there.

I do like stouts with a little head, and this one has it big time. Three fingers of foamy dark tan head with nice staying power. Leaves fat clingy lace. Body is a pitch blackness as it should be. Nose is a rich spicey zest of peppery hops and nutty mineral malts. A long rich creamyness flows all over the tongue quickly waking the taste buds to a chocolatey carmelized malt feel that is very toffee like. The way it balances out reminds mo of a very good scotch ale. A soft smokey bitter survives on the tongue to kick off a fuzzy dark chocolate mouthfeel. A wonderfully smooth drinking oatmeal stout that represents the style well and shows great craftmenship. They really must make this one again.

02/01/08- Received as a gift from BA member Talisker.

Presentation- 12oz bottle with no freshness info on the label. Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance- Deep brown pour with a larger bubbled off white thick one inch plus head. Lacing is evident from small chunks and lave trails.

Smell- Lots of sweetness from chocolate malt, a touch of coffee grounds and a base of mildly burnt caramel malt.

Taste- All the flavors a good oatmeal stout should have. Deep roasted malted taste with a batch of mid-dark chocolate to back it up. Mild coffee notes hidden beneath the chocolate. Rich and caramely. Mild hops finish it off.

Mouthfeel- To carbonated to be a a perfect stout, but not off the chart. Mild bitter chocolaty-hop aftertaste. A bit creamy as well.

Drinkability- Very nice oatmeal stout here. Would have this again in a heartbeat.

Pours a solid black with a tan head that leaves some lacing on the way down the glass. Aroma is malty with some caramel and coffee mixed together with a little fruit. Taste is a creamy coffee with some fruits and a citrus hop bite at the end. Medium body and mouthfeel. Very easy drinker, I could not notice the alcohol. Great brew, I hope its not really retired because I'd love to enjoy this again.
