Not much head, even when not served on nitro, thin carbonation is reminiscent of a nitro-poured beer. The flavor is more akin to a milk stout, in my opinion. All-in-all, my favorite beer that I've had from LaBrewCo.

Notrous version of BAOS, which added a creamy texture to an already very good stout. Served in a Nonic glass w/1 finger of head which lasted until the end. Roasty, smoky and dark chocolate smell and flavor. Very nice creamy mouth feel accentuated by the nitrous. I've had the regular BAOS before and the nitrous adds another dimension to this beer.

This beer is a sentimental favorite for me. Like most of the brews at LBC, this beer is typically served at the perfect temperature and should be enjoyed right away.

This is the Oatmeal Stout that I compare against all others. In my judgement, it has the perfect blend of Oat, chocolate, and malt flavors. The beer is a wonderful deep brown color, almost black, and the stillness of the brew certainly sets it apart from the typical over-carbonated tap beer. The only criticism I have is that the beer can have a salty aftertaste.

I have been to this brewpub over 100 times, and I never come without drinking this beer. If I am ever even close to Lafayette, I pack a growler. I have made special occasional pilgrimages to LBC with the goal of having a Stout. Occasionally, it will be available cask conditioned, a rare treat worthy of keeping them in your contact list.

On tap at the brewpub in a sampler glass.

A: dark, jet-black color, no head
S: milder roasted malt nose, on the sweeter side for a stout
T: nice balance of roasted malt and hops but lacked character
M: decent beer but lack character overall for an oatmeal stout

A: The beer is very dark amber in color. It poured with a finger high dark beige head that died down and consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Hints of dark malts and chocolate are present in the nose.
T: The taste has light flavors of semisweet chocolate and hints of cocoa nibs.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very smooth with hints of creaminess on the palate. There is a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and has a pleasant smoothness.

A: Pours extremely dark amber in color just on the border of black with a finger high tan head with lots of tiny bubbles in it. The beer has good head retention and some lacing on the glass.

S: This beer has aromas of toasted malts, dark malts, and a hint of chocolate.

T: The flavor of this beer is very light but includes semi-sweet chocolate and cocoa nibs.

M: Medium bodied and very smooth with light carbonation and hints of creaminess.

O: Very drinkable but the flavors were a little on the light side for my palate, overall a pleasant experience.

Bottle poured into a tulip

A: Pours very dark, almost black. It's not quite as viscous as heavier stouts but is still reasonably thick. Head is essentially nonexistent with the exception of a handful of tan bubbles on the surface.

S: Aroma is faint with dark roasted malt, a bit of chocolate and a bit of smokiness, not strong by any means.

T/M: It's lowly carbonated with an initial malt sweetness, hints of chocolate and a faint bitterness possibly from residual hoppiness. Oats don't lend nearly as smooth a texture as it wants to be but it definitely has an impact on the low carbonation.

A decent effort all around but not groundbreaking.

Had this with dinner a few nights ago at LBC.

Came to me with a small, foamy, chocolate brown head. Laced very well. Smelled of the traditional stout coffee and chocolate aromas, more coffee than chocolate on the nose.

The taste was pretty complex. I remember coffee and burnt malts off the bat. Then came a bit of sweetness, and chocolate undertones. A little bit of a hop profile right at the end, but finished with the coffee and burnt flavors coming back. Very little carbonation in this one. Felt almost milky in your mouth, a little more than stouts I have had.

Overall, I really liked this one. Next time I go to LBC I'll probably try a few others, but probably come back to this one in the end.
