This english black mild pours a black color with a very large, rocky tan head. I’ve had one other beer from this brewery and it had kind of an oversized head also. I think they over-carbonate their beers a little. The smell is almost nonexistent, but maybe a little of bready malts. The initial taste doesn’t have much flavor at all, but then the flavors hit you in the aftertaste. There is a lot of toasted bread malt character, some coffee, maybe a little dark chocolate. The mouth feel is bizarre. With all the carbonation a fairly light body it feels more like you have a soda in your mouth. This beer has some flavors that I typically like, but they’re just not totally together here. It’s not terrible, but there are much better examples of the style. I didn’t like the other beer I tried from this brewery too much either.

With a near-black ruby color, it has a nice dark malt flavor brimming with mild straight coffee and roasted barley taste. Although the finish is sultry dry – unfitting for the style – and the carbonation is a little too sharp, the aftertaste is phenomenal and lingering with a good bready aroma. Nevertheless, I recommend the Old Goat’s Oatmeal Stout from San Marcos Brewing Company, the P.M. Porter from BJ’s and even the Stockyard Stout from Trader Joe’s. When Goose Island brings back the Oatmeal Stout, I will recommend that too!!
