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)

It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of chocolate, molasses and dark roasted malts. The taste was smooth with hints of maple, chocolate and oats.

Nice dark ale with an opaque dark brown color with some off white head. Taste is of carmel, coffee and roasty malts. Not overly complex but very solid.

Aroma is roasted and a little sweet. Taste is sweeter than I expected but pretty balanced with that oatmeal creaminess.

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.

Suttree (5224) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Blac, with no head, which is kind of a warning sign. Smells like burnt coffee, and a little ashy. Flavor is more scorched coffee and toasty. Thin bodied.

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.

From bottle. Dark brown head. Tight bubbles that dont last long. Mostly a coffee/roasty aroma. Slight sweet taste.

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.
