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)

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.

seymour (1465) - 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.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 5, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2006 Draft at the brewpub. Pours black, with a very small foamy head. Faint aroma chocolate, molasses, and dark roasted malt. Flavor is smooth, with hints of maple, chocolate, oats. I did not personally care for the finish. Something was off, and I can’t quite put my finger on it. It was bitter, yeasty, and peppery This seemed pretty tame overall, probably to appeal to the casual beer drinker. Still a decent brew, but not as good as some of their other beers, especially the porter.

decaturstevo (5198) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 3, 2006
A dark almost black pour with an off white head that stays forever. A toasted malt flavor. A nice taste that starts sweet and goes dry qucikly. A light bitter finish.A decent mouthfeel but just a tad watery with very good carbonatioin that makes for a smooth palate. Not a bad brewpub beer.

nearbeer (3813) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 17, 2013
12 oz. Opaque ebony with a lasting quarter inch of cream. Aroma of graham cracker, coffee, dark chocolate and toasted marshmallow. Tastes of dark chocolate, coffee grounds, lactose, tart berry. Near-medium body is a bit sweet, but has a nice roast for balance and light-medium carbonation.
