Definitely the jewel of the Wild Goose brews. The deep black color is beautiful, but I was quite surprised there was very little on top of this beer despite an aggressive pour. The small brown head there was didnt last but for a few seconds.

Smells of roasted hops and dark chocolate--very nice. Its very creamy and has a bit more of a roasted flavor than Samuel Smith's, but is not as smooth or complex. Though its no Sammy, an excellent Oatmeal Stout nonetheless.

This is a very dark brown stout with a nice creamy head. Head retention is not as good as many stouts. The aromas are faint but pleasing. The mouth feel is somewhat creamy, but it doesn't linger around very long. It has a very smooth taste, presenting more sweetness at cooler temps, more roasted flavor as it warms. Very low bitterness. It is a very drinkable stout that doesn't feel too heavy for the summer heat. My favorite WIld Goose offering.

I love the dark color of this beer, as well as the nice aroma it carries. It has a very good taste to it, if a bit lighter than other oatmeal stouts. Not as good as Samuel Smiths or my local Barley's brew, but still a good beer find.

Pours a deep black with a nice thick dark tan head. the smell is of roasted malts and slightly bitter coffee. Roasted caramel malts and oatmeal start off on your tongue but the taste slowly fades into a smooth chocolate and then to an only slightly bitter coffee. There is a nice aftertaste of nutty chocolate left on the tongue. Very smooth and highly drinkable. This was a very nice surprise. After tasting the IPA and the Amber from this brewery I was expecting this to be just above average like those two. Very nice smooth body and great taste as well.
