Our unique blend of roasted barley, chocolate, and black patent malts produces a nice medium bodied stout. Accented with notes of Fuggle and East Kent Golding hops.

got this at the brewworks for my friend's 21st birthday during the great northeast blackout. Very good stout overall, but not very "oatmeal". Doesn't really detract from it though. I still recommend this beer, and the Bethlehem BW as a whole

I made my first trip to BBW in early March, 2004. I was very impressed with the food and beers. I had this one as part of their sampler. It is very dark, with a thick light brown head. Very malty, with subdued hops. Overtones of chocolate, roastiness, and raisins. BBW is worth the trip.

Stopped at Bethlehem Brew Works for a business lunch, only got to sample the stout. Started off well with my pint having a dark body, and off white head. Aroma was roasted malts, just what you would expect from a stout. As I drank the stout I noticed a harsh salty / bitter aftertaste.

Black, with dense tan head. Full-bodied. Roasty and sweet with a slight bitterness. Lots of coffee and chocolate.

Draft at the brewpub. This wasn't that great. Was a little watery in body and the flavor was a little to much burnt malt.

Loved this stout, black in color with a nice full & rich brown head, excellent roasted flavors, nicely balanced with a medium body, almost like a Murphy's or even a Guinness in its body, this was so drinkable, hints of chocolate, a bit of a dry finish, overall a great stout

Got a 1/2 gallon growler for me and some others. I was the only one that ended up drinking it. Good stout. A bit roasty and has a punch at the end. Not one of the creamier oatmeal stouts that I have tried.

Where is the Oatmeal? I was expecting a Samuel Smith's Oatmeal flavor, but I was disappointed. Otherwise, it was overall a fine drink in a great place for food and the like. I spent my 21st there and in their Steelgaarden Belgian Beer Lounge. If you are in the Bethlehem area, worth the trip for the 100 Belgians alone. Overall a decent beer and comparable to a normal stout, but I feel like its name is a misnomer. There is probably more Steelworker than oatmeal in this mix.

Dark chestnut brown with small lite brown head. Decent lacing on glass. Coffee notes iun front of swallow with lingering coffee aftertaste 5-10 seconds after swallow. Hop character does not become apparent until the end. Very thin mouthfeel for a stout.
