Beer Tasting : Erie Brewing Drake's Crude Oatmeal Stout

Drake's Crude is an oatmeal stout brewed by Erie Brewing Company of Erie, Pennsylvania. This bottle was purchased from Fathead's in Pittsburgh, PA. Have you tasted this beer? Let us know what you think. As a suggestion, try to keep the review as brief as possible for each of the following: appearance; smell; taste; mouthfeel; and drinkability. Appearance Adam: dark, like molases with a brown ring Bryan: pours almost like a crude oil (ha!) with just a bit of caramel-colored big bubbled head Smell Adam: grain, malt Bryan: full nose of barley and just a touch of alcohol to the nose Taste Adam: sweet; bowl of oatmeal; very good Bryan: full of sweet and rich goodness; just a barely perceptible hop flavor Mouthfeel Adam: substantial Bryan: full, smooth, but not overbearing Drinkability Adam: nothing at all objectionable Bryan: very drinkable for a hefty stout Seconds? Adam: thirds!!! Bryan: oh yeah, no doubt
