BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Nelson Brewing Company
British Columbia, Canada

Style: Oatmeal Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Praised as the one of the best stouts in British Columbia. This smooth black beauty compliments the roasted barley accents of a dry stout with the unmistakably rich and silky finish that only oatmeal can provide. Treat yourself by drizzling a fresh shot of local espresso into your pint of Blackheart.

650ml bomber poured into tulip 30/11/13

A near black with a deep cola edge, two fingers of mocha foam leaves a thick ring followed by a a couple random patches

S coco, coffee, dry cereal, charred wood, not bad but its rather faint

T more of the same really, a little plum and there's more charred wood and the coffees a little darker

M thin for the color, foamy side of creamy, a little gritty on the palate, dark roast and dark fruit on the finish

O simple but decent, straightforward and a little boring but worth the 5$

basic stuff, I don't feel ripped off with my cheap bomber but I doubt I'd bother again with so much on the shelves I've yet to try

(from notes)
650ml bottle split with a friend.

A: dark, one finger of foamy tan head, cherry highlights when held to the light, but very, very dark.
S: dark, toasted malt. vanilla, coffee, caramel.
T: fairly bitter, dark roasty flavours
F: not overly thick, a wee bit puckery
O: Good. I'd probably prefer a slightly sweeter and maybe thicker style, but I'd buy this again.

Nelson Brewing 'Blackheart Organic Oatmeal Stout' @ 5.7% , served from a 650 ml bottle purchased for $5

A-pour is dark brown from the bottle to near black in the glass , also some ruby red highlights peaking thru with a small tan head leaving as streaky lace along the pint glass

S-organic barley , oats , and hops

T-crisp tasting , similar to a RIS at times , with a slight dry finish

Blackheart Oatmeal Stout is definitely black! It's also a weaker entry into the stout family, not horribly flavoured with the coffee flavours I am accustomed to, but an easy drinking brew nonetheless. I wouldn't go rushing out to buy it again, but it's still a drinkable beer that may fit one's tastes nicely.

A - cola black, short head dissipated quickly leaving consistent lacing

T - burnt malt, cocoa, cola, and a grainy finish
M - medium carbonation, light and smooth, little chaulky on the finish
O - not a bad stout, tasty enough, just doesn't wow me in any particular way
