look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a very dark brown color, not quite black, with a nice two-finger tan head that fell slowly, and lacing ensued. I could smell the roasty, chocolate aroma as I poured it into a nonic. Very nice smell to it. Flavor is mostly chocolate, plenty of chocolate malts used in this one, and not some much roasted malt. Very creamy tasting, notes of vanilla, caramel and coffee are also present, but not too strong or overwhelming. It tastes very nice but it's not complex and is unfortunately a little light on body. It's silky smooth, but a bit watery on the finish. A very drinkable stout and quite sessionable. I will easily put back 2 or 3 of these tonight.

4.05/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Opaque dark black/brown. 3/4" of head becomes a thin layer after a few moments. Some lacing, though not much.

Smell: Sweet, chocolate. Bitter dark chocolate. Roasted malts. Wiffs of caramel.

Taste: Lots of bitter dark chocolate. More bitter chocolate than the nose suggests. Definate roasted coffee. There is some oatmeal there, especially right before the finish. It is masked by the chocolate and roasted coffee tastes though.

Mouthfeel: Perhaps a little too carbonated for me. Medium/medium light body. Probably about right for the style though.

I really enjoy this beer. Nothing too complex, very drinkable. Definately recommended.

Picked up a single at Badger Liquor on State St. here in Madison, the self-proclaimed "Madison's Happiest Corner"....if you say so, guys.

Pours pitch black with absolutely no head, even though I gave it a pretty rough pour. I thin, spotty tan coating is all to be seen. Smell is quite nice, roasty malts and fresh coffee. Taste continues with the sweet roasted malts, coffee, and maybe a hint of raspeberry chocolate. It describes itself as a "Chocolate Oatmeal Stout", but coffee is the dominating feature here, which is fine by me, I like a good coffee stout. Mouthfeel, sadly, is almost flat, seems rather undercarbonated, but still thick and smooth. Overall, the yummy coffee aroma and taste mostly make up for the lackluster appearance and mouthfeel. Worth a try if you can find it. I've never seen it anywhere else.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a standard pint glass. Label depicts a bear licking his chops. No brewed on date.

Appearance: Pours with 3/4 inch of medium tan foamy head that quickly settles into a slight coating. The beer itself is black and opaque with hints of ruby at the edge.


Smell: Predominat smell is a lsightly sweet but mostly bitter chocolate smell, very rich. Backbone of roasted barley and slight hint of bitter hops.

Taste: Decent carbonation bit upfront. SLightly sweet chocolate flavor with a little bit of roasted barley. Finishes with a sweet and creamy feel form the oats.

Mouthfeel: Average level of carbonation, maybe a tad high for a stout. Body is averge.

Drinkability: My first sampling from Sand Creek. I picked this up from a store that had some not too fresh brews and was worried about the age of this single. Very good and drinkable brew. If this is not fresh, I would like to try one that is.

Dark, opaque beer with reasonable tan head that settles into a ring.

Smells malty, noticeably chocolate; nicely dark oat beer, but not spectacular. I enjoy the taste more. Almost no hops, so almost all of the bitterness is provided via espresso flavor. Small oats on the nose, but the beer is focused on the chocolate malt, which lingers in the aftertaste.

Pleasant brew. Not too complex, but would happily have a couple.

Its Saturday night and time for dessert. Trying a Sand Creek Oscar Chocolate Stout. The stout poured dark opaque with off-white head that is not lacing. The smell includes roast, chocolate, and some espresso. The taste includes roast, chocolate, and espresso...much like the nose. The mouthfeel is ok, light body..perhaps too much carbonation. Overall it is a decent stout...not the best, but definitely good.

Aroma was roasted baker’s choclate and cocoa. Classic stout appearance-black body holding a firm mocha head. Luscious ebony color as it settles. Flavor is sweet, but the choclate is muted to me and more smooth, vanilla tinged fromt he oatmeal. The overall taste is still good if not fantastic. Full body and texture you expect from a stout. Solid beer.

A quick growing three finger head jumps to the top of my glass and fades slowly. Head is toasted biscuit brown in color. Body is jet black and only shows hints of light when held to flame. Nose is roasty with toasted malts that are really bready. Includes some coco and soft spice also. Enters the mouth with that same roasty feel, very malty up front on the palate. It is a bit thin mid palate but quickly fills in with some dry bitter feel towards the end of the palate. The oats keep this brew smooth throughout. Mouthfeel is dry, bitter and slightly thick, but it still stays soft. Drinkability is very good. I actually had an oatmeal raisin cookie towards the end of this beer and it was the perfect pairing.

This beer is a dark black with a tan head. There is no light coming through here. The smell is as the name implies, oatmeal and chocolate. Also some caramel hints. The taste is more oatmeal. There are some sweet chocolate hints as well. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. The beer is an easy drinker. I could go for this beer again. Overall, this beer tastes like what the name says. A good beer that is malty and filling. Thumbs up.

Lighter black color with some red highlights. Medium controlled tan head. No lacing. A good medium chocolate flavor to this beer. Not sweet but not bitter either. More milky than I expected. It leaves sort of a lactose film in my mouth, like when drinking milk. Nutty roast deep down. Some acidic black malts up top. Not too oatmealy imo. Good fuller body. Not the smoothest oatmeal stout I've had but more flavorful than most. Very good for the price.
