On cask at Pinocchio's.

A deep and very dark brown color with minimal head or lace. Appetizing aroma of chocolate and roasted grain. Sweet, creamy chocolate malt and chocolate milk, moderate roastiness, light coffee note. Hop presence is minimal. Overall, delicious.

Soft mouthfeel with low carbonation. Not entirely still, however. Medium bodied but with a light feel. Dry finish. So drinkable and smooth, this one is a real winner for me.

Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance – Served a deep brown color with a light off white head. The head faded to give a light amount of lacing.
Smell- The smell was on the lighter side with notes of roasted coffee and a ever so light amount of cocoa.

Taste – Bitter tastes of coffee and roasted malt meet the tongue initially. There is some bitter chocolate that works its way in more toward the middle. Overall this is quite a bitter stout.

Mouthfeel – The brew has a moderate to slightly above moderate body with a lower level of carbonation. A good fit for the bitter taste and the style of the beer.

Overall – It was a alright stout. Not the biggest flavor profile and the bitterness of it actually made it a little hard for me to drink; it definitely slowed me down. If lyou ooking for a dry bitter stout this is it; but not really for me.

Had this on Nitro at "The Library" south side.

A - A very impressive pour which always leads to a pillow like effect of fallen snow and a full inch of mocha colored head. Beer is an impressive solid black.

S - Not really much to the nose, maybe some chocolate and coffee. I couldn't even detect the hops.

T - What a sneaky bit of hops! The flavors are a soft chocolate and a mild coffee with some bitter pine hops in the finish. In a way it's exactly like "Guinness Extra Stout" same ABV too.

M - Medium and creamy. Hops were not overbearing.

Overall this is one of the very few hoppy English stouts I had and it left a good impression. Great beer overall.

On cask at Mr. Goodbar's part of the 2010 cask fetival. Pours an opaque brown with no head, and gives off a chocolate aroma. The taste is initially hoppy, and then the malt kicks in. Some roast, and it has an above average mouthfeel. Good drinkability.Leaves good lacing.

Sly Fox Oatmeal stout has a body that is black and completely opaque except for its edges. About a finger of brown head is thick and leaves a few scraps of lacing behind.

The aroma has roasted malts and coffee packed in there pretty well.

Sly Fox Oatmeal stout is pretty sweet, with a good amount of coffee and roasted malts coming through. Quite a bit of dark fruits also.

The star of this beer is the mouthfeel; I always enjoy the full, creamy feel of an Oatmeal stout, but this one is excellent even for the style. Thick with just a little bit of slickness and just enough carbonation. I almost had trouble paying attention to flavor because I was thinking how this felt.

Sly Fox Oatmeal Stout is a solid beer with a fantastic mouthfeel; probably something I would order again.
