Generous amounts of brewers oats give this beer a thick tan head and slick, almost oily mouthfeel. Roasted barley as well as black and chocolate malts give the beer its dark color and rich flavor. East kent golding hops are noticable but not overpowering. Our Oatmeal stout is definately a meal in a glass.

#989. Bottle. Thanks to whoever brought this to the White Elephant exchange at the Chicago Area gathering at Flossmoor station. Dark ruby with a medium head that is quickly discipating. Nose is malty, grainy. Taste is roasted malts, sharp sugars nuts and dark fruit skins. Tangy.

This was another super funky brew from them.My second and hopefully my last. It looked very nice but after their Barley Wine I was cautious. Shoulda’ known. Muddled and misguided. Needs alot of work.

Cliff (355) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Bottle from tjthresh. Poured almost black with a thick off white head. Very roasted aroma, coffee, chocolate. Rich velvety mouthfeel that coats the flavors of again, coffee, chocolate molasses and a bready yeastiness. Nice finish. A nice oatmeal stout.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2006
Bottle from Secret Santa. Good roasted malty aroma with a mild sweet chocolate. Black body with tan head. Was little hard to get a good description of the flavor on this one. I had a couple of coffee beers before this one. Had a good medium sweet roasted malt presence noticable. Smooth enjoyable brew on the palate.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2006
12 ounce bottle. Black coffee with a light brown head. Aromas of coffee with creamer, rolled oats, come light chocolate syrup notes. A bit hop hops in the nose and plenty of a bitter end. Lush on the palate. Very full and rich. Nice. Some good chocolate character. Not bad at all Chuck.

Bottle. Thanks Noah (htsprint1) and Jen. Dark chocolate brown with a small but frothy tan head. Nose is chocolate, oatmeal, roasted coffee, prunes/raisins, toasted walnuts. Medium body with a smooth, creamy feel. Flavor captures the aroma. Some sweetness and a bit of bitter coffolate. A nice drink.

Draft sample at Back Road Fest. Poured dark brown with an average creamy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malty aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy texture. Medium sweet roasted flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration.
