Don't expect a big beer meringue here, I think the oats inhibit that.
The color is black with a hint of toasted chestnut shell around the rim. Beautiful lacing; sheer streaks that slowly fade.
Smells of smokey chocolate caramel and apricots, and apricot kernels.
Great fruity backbone leads to a wall of burnt toast. It's like a quilt made of pieces of burnt toast smeared with jam and oatmeal and blazed with a torch and hosed with raspberry mineral water. Nice art.

Blackish color with a tan head. Aroma is largely black and roasted malts with some sweetness and very light hops. The taste is similar, but adds oats and some ripe fruits. Crisp body is fairly dry and light. Good dry/oatmeal stout. I think this beer drinks better on tap and is best on nitro. A very classic stout.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Winter Warlock standard pint glass. Beer was black, with a one-finger, dark brown head. Moderate lacing and light carbonation.

Aroma was chocolate, roasted grains and coffee.

Taste was chocolate, coffee, malt and bitter hops.

Very nice, easy drinking winter seasonal.

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

Pours a big 2 finger chocolate head, body is black with some yeast sediment. Head retention is good and lacing is very good

Smell is of sweet chocolate roasted malt and some coffee. There is also hints of licorice and spice like anise

Taste is of sweet chocolate burnt malt, slightly bitter hops are in the after taste.

Mouth feel is silky smooth. Medium bodied, head has some creaminess and beer is well carbonated

Drink ability is good, has the flavors of an imperial stout but the oatmeal lightens the body to that of a porter. This beer was reviewed in the Summer and its just as good then as it is in the Winter

Bristol Brewing, Winter Warlock Oatmeal Stout. Cool character on the label, I like this guy.

Muddy reddish brown, slim, but staying cocoa-brown head.

Just-right aroma. A little nutty, creamy, hints of coffee, bigger nods at chocolate. Sweet, yet dry.

Beautiful in the mouth. Floods it and fills it, lays down the tracks and lets it ride. Silky smooth has become a cliche', but it's appropriate here. Fits the bill for an oatmeal stout. Bittersweet, roasty, full-bodied, and smooth. Hearty and palatable. Mmm, mm, mmm.

12oz bottle from russpowell via trade. Thanks for the opportunity. Notches indicate bottling in 2nd week of January.

Poured into a pint glass, formed a 1/2" brown head above the opaque dark brown/black brew. Head falls gradually, with average lacing. Aroma is dark rich oatmeal character. Taste follows along, dark oatmeal maltiness countered with moderate hops bitterness. Mouthfeel is a little rough with overcarbonation, and drinkability is slightly limited by same. All in all, a good brew.
