A bomber with no date received from generous BA beertunes last summer that's been in the fridge. Pouring it in a 14oz. stout glass for the review.

Look- Pours a thin dark cola colored brown leaving a small finger of tan foam. It slowly settles to form a ring revealing a little lacing.

Smell- Bakers chocolate, dark roast, cookie dough and a hint of char.

Taste- Semi sweet dark chocolate, tobacco, dark roast and malted milk.

Feel- Slick and oily but on the thin side for the style. It's a bit fizzy on the tongue with a semi dry finish.

Overall- I don't think time hurt this one at all. It's dangerously drinkable at 8.5% and tastes like a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie. Only minor 'complaint' is the relatively thin feel, otherwise a very good beer.

Smooth stout, smelling dark fruit, balsamic vinegar, roasted malt, light chocolate and molasses. Tastes of the same with a thick mouthfeel that keeps you wanting another sip.

I had this on tap at Boundary Bay. The appearance of the body was super dark brown with a minimal, white, wispy head. The smell of this oatmeal stout was above average, roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. The taste was similar to the smell. For me, the mouthfeel stood out. It was thick, substantial, and dense...chewy. Overall, this is a pretty good stout that I will have again, but will not go out of my way to find.

Served from a bottle, into a pint glass

Appearance is very deep dark blackish brown in color

Nose is very strong and aromatic. Full of roasted malt and mocha/coffee in the beginning. Followed by oats and a touch of milk sugars at the end.

Taste is very balanced and full of malt, toffee, cocoa, and just a hint of vanilla. Has a great mouthfeel and finishes with a lingering, lasting malt taste.

This is a great Oatmeal Stout and is sure to leave you asking for another. Typically not what i drink on a regular basis, but this was a great surprise
