COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This traditional beer style has enjoyed a revival in the past 15 years. Like all stouts, it features the coffee-like taste of roasted barley; what distinguishes oatmeal stout is the body and smoothness of oats combined with the sweetness of caramel malt. This batch is bittered with Northern Brewer hops, an English variety well suited to this style. As always it is unfiltered. (O.G. - 1.060, IBU's - 27)

12 oz bottle pours black with a off white Head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Taste is the malts, coffee and a hint of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Ar: Hint of light roast coffee and some ash. Ap: Black with brown highlights on the edges - medium light tan head with moderate retention, leaving a thin but solid cap of foam. T: Medium-sweet with a little coffee - very clean, some light caramel and smooth roast - a touch of spicy hop flavor with a medium bitterness - a little ash and caramel on the finish. P: Medium-full body, very silky and creamy - medium carbonation - finish is dry. O: This beer has some very good qualities - it looks good and has a really nice mouthfeel. However, the beer comes off as bland, as the roast is so restrained and there aren’t many other flavors to be found.

bigwesticle (37) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 19, 2012
a little light and watery, for any type of stout, but still enjoyable. Coffee notes on the nose, roasted barley, no hops. Tastes nice, roasty light coffee, but there just isn’t enough there, body or flavors. Average beer that, with some tweaks, could be awesome.

seymour (1591) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Transferred from old tasting notes. Tasted on tap at brewpub, Nashville, Tennessee, USA in standard pint glass. Poured an opaque, very dark brown, almost black color with creamy, full, beige head with good retention and even a little lace. Flavors and aromas characteristic of a good oatmeal stoat: malty, bready, caramelly, toasty, roasty, with balanced bitterness and hints of coffee, chocolate and dried dark fruit. Very good.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Backlog from 12/09. Tap. Aroma all about chocolate with touches of dark grain. Flavor remains all about the chocolate, lightly milky but still plenty of cacao goodness. Straightforward but very tasty.

Very dark brown with reddish highlights and decent brown head. Sweet nose. Malty, roasty flavors. Medium body. Reminded me of a solid effort...for a homebrewer
