Thanks to BellinghamBeerQuokka for helping me fill in this gap. A nice, solid stout with that didn't have too much roast in either the nose or palate. Full yet smooth body. Easy drinkability. Right now the town of Winthrop is in the middle of some terrible wild fires. I hope everyone, including the brewery is safe.

Pours a deep black with a creamy mocha head. Smaller than I would expect, but leaves decent lacing as it disappears down my gullet. The aroma hits as soon as you pop the lid: creamy sweet chocolate. Roasty and smoothe. Really inviting.

Starts off with a smoothe incline of roast bordering-on-but-never-quite-reaching char. Hints towards acrid coffee, but with all the harsh acidity stripped, so you there’s no sharp bite to it, just the backing flavour. Moves into layers of sweet chocolate and molasses, but there’s an almost green bitter hint riding around the top edge. Finish is more of a burnt bitter than the one noted above, with a creamy sweet touch underneath.

Really tasty stout. Nothing that hasn’t been done, but done absolutely well. Grabbed it almost on a whim in honour of the pounding that region had taken in recent weeks (fires and floods, etc), and glad I did from a tasty-beer-standpoint as well.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black, but transparent at the edges. Small khaki head.

Smell - Roasted malts. Coffee. Dark chocolate.

Taste - Deep roasted malts. A hint of sweetness. Bitter coffee malts. Much like its big brother, but nowhere near as intense.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Mild bitterness.

Overall - Shouldn't have had this after the imperial version. This suffered. Well made but not that exciting.

What a delicious, creamy and toasty dark brew! Dark brown with chestnut edges in the Morte Subite globe. The head builds up nicely and subsides to a lacy cap. Mouthfeel is rich and sudsy with a plentiful but fine carbonation.

Very dark roasted malt is the main flavor. Some woody notes and a lot of grainy darkness. The mellow malty sweetness keeps this from slipping over the bitter and burnt edge, but there is plenty of charred barley. All very well balanced and hard to stop drinking. Bitter aftertaste is just right.

This was a nice surprise. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a thin tan head that died down, leaving a large collar around the edge of the glass and some lacing down the sides.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark malts are present in the nose along with some hints of roast.
T: The taste has flavors of dark malts, except that the roasted flavors are a lot stronger and linger through the finish. There are light amounts of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied and quite smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer really exhibits a lot properties similar to a Russian Imperial Stout, except that it is lighter in body and has some pleasant smoothness from the oats.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: A magnificent pour, with a huge tan head cascading over the pitch black liquid; gobs of lacing are left behind

Smell: Chocolate and coffee with hints of roast and oats

Taste: A bit roasty (almost burnt) up front, but then it dials in the chocolate flavor in a big way; by mid-palate, the coffee flavors arrive to add another dimension; a bit of cookie dough sweetness, after the swallow finishes up the panoply of flavors

Mouthfeel: Fullbodied and very creamy, with moderate carbonation

Overall: A really nice Oatmeal Stout, bringing a range of flavors

Thanks, mdaschaf, for the opportunity

Review from 5/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours dark, dark brown with a thin light brown head and no lacing. Mild dark roasted and caramel malt aroma with a light citrus component. A medium stout with dark malts, dark fruits. Hoppy finish. Medium creamy mouth feel. Somewhat unbalanced with the alcohol showing, but a pleasant, satisfying stout.

Appearance: pours a dark brown color with a two finger head that lasts a while. Some light lace develops.

Smell: coffee and dark chocolate fills the nose with a nice aroma.

Taste: roasted malts, dark chocolate, smooth oat flavor, some soft coffee tones, and a mild bitterness make up a well balanced stout.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp to start, smoother at the finish. Short lasting roasted aftertaste.

Overall: a very easy to quaff beer. Full of roasted and chocolate tones make the taste buds happy.

Dark brown and fluffy brown head with thick lacing. Coffee and light chocolate aroma. Big roasty up front balanced by chocolate sweetness and an oaty finish. Thick and silky with a dry bite.

A big, chewy stout that’s normally a little expensive but on closeout was worth a shot. It’s certainly above par for an oatmeal stout that’s balanced nicely and feels like a bigger beer, though it’s really just a thick stout.

I first discovered this brewery at the Anacortes Oktoberfest and gave them my vote for best at show.
Hooligan stout pours very dark brown with nice brown head that retains well.
Chocolate smoothness to the taste with a generous amount of hop bitterness on the back side.
Very enjoyable sipper that was gone before I realized it.
Top notch stout in my opinion.
