Keyth- my palate ain't the greatest....but I'm going to try. There is plenty of gentle roastiness in this brew. It's not sharp roast, and I can't call it either 'coffee-like' or 'chocolate'. The mouthfeel is thin for an oatmeal stout but I attribute that to my FG of 1.009. The lactose helps with that. I used Denny's 1450. You can see from the photo that there is a bit of dark red when the light catches the bottom of the glass just right. Head retention stinks. Overall I think if mash had been
five degrees higher (looks like it started way too low at 148 for ten minutes, I was double-brewing...) this beer would be improved. I give it three stars and am happy with leaving out the heavy roast as it probably would have put this thinner beer over the edge.

Cheers!

Is your daughter that likes this the one I met at your house? If so, I knew I liked that girl.
Both of my daughters were there. This is a funny self-portrait they took. The one who likes the stout is Jen; she's the one with the white sunglasses. She was behind the camera all day, so this is all I have of her from that day. She was a huge help. (where is the smiley heart emoticon?? \"\" )

The label I made for this recipe that I aged in a whisky barrel...hope to get them mailed this weekend Yooper! It's a generic label and the first I've made but didn't want to send them without some sort of label...
