Review: Lumberjack Oatmeal Stout

Lumberjack Oatmeal Stout from Hops Grillhouse & Brewery
Rating: B-

Appearance was very dark, with little head or lacing, perhaps due to pour since it was on tap. Smell was somewhat weak, predominantly roasted grain. Taste has a good dose of roast-grain bitterness. Not particularly complex, and the vanilla character noted by another reviewer didn't come through at all for me. Mouthfeel is somewhat thin, more like a porter than a stout. Lacks the creaminess I expect in an oatmeal stout. Drinkability is good, especially when it's two-for-one before seven o'clock!

Serving type: on-tap
