    Got a single of this today to try. Never saw them before...Wild Goose. Been seeing some new Oatmeal Stouts and Porters, so deciding to sample them since they are two of my favorite styles. This one was OK for me, but nothing special. Seemed a bit thin, not necessarily watered down though. Aroma a little on the sour side, but also nutty from the oatmeal. Dark dark brown appearance. The flavor is there, but nothing that overwhelmingly stands out. Worth the single, but dunno if I'd get it again.

    Pours an almost black color with a medium off-white head. Smells of smokey malts and a bit of a chocolate aroma. Taste is similar to the smell. Not bad.

    Poured a dark brown with lighter brown head. The aroma and taste were sweet and malty. There were hints of cocoa. The head faded fast with almost no carbonation. This would be good in small amounts as a nightcap.

    A hard day at work, and a conscious effort to find a craft beer that is new. A stop at Albertson’s. Yes, Albertson’s has presented a nice selection of unique craft beers. And when I find an Oatmeal Stout I’m like a kid in a toy store. Nice label of geese. The ale pours with a black colored body. A medium frothy tannish head with little hang time. That’s disappointing, but it settles into a soapy lacing. The body is smooth though ever so slightly light/watery. Not as robust a body as I prefer in this style or in stouts generally. The aroma is subtle but speaks of oats, chocolate and java. The java-cholate assaults the palate and that isn’t bad. Certainly not to be ranked among the best, but really not a bad drink This beer went well with oatmeal cookies..

    From a bottle. Pours an opaque dark brown/black with an off white head. Aroma is sweet and caramely. Flavor is sweet, some chocolate notes. Nice bitterness at the end. An ok beer overall.

    Pours dark brown/black with an inch tan frothy head. Aroma is not strong. Roasted malt dominates the nose but caramel, toffee and a sugary sweetness hide in the background. Notes of toasted malt, toast, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and a light finish of hops. A pretty weak Oatmeal Stout.

    Wild Goose Oatmeal Stout poured with a nice black body topped off by a smallish light brown colored head that left minimal lace down the sides of the glass. Aroma of rich bitter coffe with some oatmeal and dark chocolate as well. The mouthfeel is creamy, medium to full bodied and slightly carbonated. The flavor is very rich with chocolate covered espresso beans, tobacco, oats and some sweet roasted maltyness. A very nice beer to get out of a raffle basket, I like to find it somewhere to try again.

    Pours pitch black with a big, frothy, khaki-colored head. When held up to bright light, its crimson hue is revealed. Toast, espresso, dark chocolate and perfume in the aroma. Lots of roasted malt flavor. Bitter cocoa, espresso and damp wood or straw. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Short, toasted, bitter finish.

    This was really surprisingly good for a beer 6.50 a sixer. Beer poured dark, dark brown with head that dissipated rather quickly. Aroma is roasted malt. Flavor is smokey and roasty with some oatmeal. Some lactic milky flavor along with an odd sweet flavor that I can't place. Rich flavor and tingly mouthfeel. Very pleasant.
