3.97/5  rDev +10.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle to a pint glass the liquid is dark brown with ok carbonation. The head is close to 2 fingers tan and leaves some lace.

The smell is a nice roasty malt, mild notes of coffee and chocolate.

The taste follows, I like these stouts that are all about the roasted malt. Notes of bitter chacolate are well as dark roasted coffee. Not a lot of hops present.

The mouthfeel is good, nice body and good carbonation.

The drinkability is good I would be glad to enjoy this brew again.

Prosit, MK

Served up in a pint glass with a 1/2" head of beige foam. The beer was ebony in color... some spotty lace on the glass as I drank.

Nose: Roasted malt, sweet caramel, dark chocolate.

Taste: same as nose.

MF: Smooth and creamy. Low carbonation.

Drink: Easy to drink... solid offering.

Presentation: I moved away from West Lafayette just as LBC started to bottle. I was back in town for the Winter Warmer and picking up a six pack of each of their bottled beers was a priority. How good to be drinking LBC again. Very simple label depicts some grains with LBC's symbol superimposed.

Appearance: Pours with very little head, maybe 1/8 inch. This quickly settles into next to nothing, just a few tan bubbles. The beer itself is dark and opaque with hints of mahogany around the edges.

Smell: Smells of roasted barley and bitter chocolate. Wonderful aroma, big and malty.

Taste: A nice smooth, yet full flavored beer. A solid body of raosted barley bitterness throughout. On top of this is some hops bitterness and a slight sweetness from the oats. Long, lingering flavor.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation level is low, as I would expect for a stout. Body is average +.

Drinkability: I admittedly have a soft spot for this beer from one of my old hangouts, but I think this is a solid stout with a nice blend of appropriate flavors.

Thanks to Oribtalr0x for this bottle. Poured into pizza port pint glass. Poured black coffee color with thin tan head that disappered quickly. Coffee and Chocolate on the nose. Taste is slight bitter coffee followed by a burnt malt flavor. Mouthfeel is fullbody and smooth with low carbonation level. A very drinkable oatmeal stout.

Had this on draft on a recent road trip. Served in a pub pint glass.
Appears a very dark brown with a good one inch head on top. Looks good.
Smell is roasted oats and malts.
Taste is roasted oats with some molasses. Mouthfeel is really thick/creamy and smooth. Little to no carbonation to speak of.
This is a good offering and a very good representation of the style. It goes down very easy and with no signs of the alcohol content. Which makes this a very sessionable beer.

Their website lists this beer as the 1998 World Beer Championships Silver Medal winner and it is a quality brew. Pours a deep black with a small tan head that disappears very quickly. Smell is a massive amount of roasted malts with slight hints of coffee. This beer has a nice roasted oat flavor but with a tad more spice than the oatmeal stout offering from Samuel Smith. The hops really come through as this beer warms, but there is never a note of any alcohol present. Mouthfeel is outstanding, this beer is very smooth. I always enjoy having a couple pints of this.
