COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich, round and roasted, our Oatmeal Stout is satisfaction in a glass. It's a bold, smooth-bodied concoction that oozes dark-roasted coffee aromas and flavors of espresso and semi-sweet chocolate. We round out these heady pleasures with a dose of flaked oatmeal for a creamy body and a semi-dry finish. Unforgettable.

Great dark pour with nose of oatmeal (duh), malt and a wee-bit chocolate. Much thinner that what I was expecting, and the taste was less than expected too...hoping it was just a bit thicker. Good oatmeal taste, but the smokey malt was a bit odd. Not the best Oat Stout Iíve had.

Chocolate smokey aroma thatís a little too light. It has a nice roasted coffee flavor thatís not bitter. A nice oakey finish. Not as much body as I would like in an oatmeal stout, but avoids the bitterness you might encounter in some stouts.

12oz - Aroma is faint chocolate malt and coffee. Pours solid black with a huge brown head and great lacing. Flavor is roasted chocolate malt, cheap espresso, and a touch of oatmeal. Palate is sticky. This is an intro stout for the newly converted.

I thought it smelled like olives and tasted like smoke and olives. Really strong flavor. Not what Iím used to. Bitter and disgusting.

12oz bottle poured in English pint - This beer pours a completely opaque brown with a frothy brown head. It looks delicious! It has the expected oatmeal aroma but nothing particularly adventerous there. It has a good oatmeally and roasted barley taste a with definite coffee base. It has a good lingering aftertaste that is warming and pleasant. There is no hint of the metallic aroma or taste that some oatmeal stouts have.

Very dark black color, a bit of head but not much. Looks like an island of bubbles in the center of my glass surrounded by an ocean of tar with a tan colored coral reef and distant off-white clouds around the outside of their little world. The atmosphere has a composition of chocolate, burnt oatmeal and an acidic water quality you get with some of the thinner stouts. The flavor has a bit much astringency to work with the level of sweetness they chose. Whoa-ho-ho there roasted malt! Lots of smoke too. Not the good rauch or lapsang sort though; more akin to cigarette ashes. Everything else is there in spades but they brought their unkempt hobo friend along to spoil the party. Finishes a bit thin and the astringency lingers. Like bitter expresso grounds in the bottom of your super-sweet latte. Why would you want to end it that way? I donít know.

AndrewM (126) - Waco (Buckle of the Bible Belt), Texas, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Pours dark with red highlights where the light comes through, with a thin quickly disappearing tan head. Aroma is extremely light. Hints of chocolate, dark fruit, coffee. Flavor is a bitter chocolate, with a bitter / dry finish. Not bad, nothing to complain about, but not really anything that stands out either. From Grapevine in Austin.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - NOV 16, 2005
Coco, plum, and cream in the nose. Very roasty with a little bitterness. Flavors of coffee beens, and coco accented by dark fruit. Finishes with more roasted malt and with a bit of unexpected dryness.

jgb9348 (5092) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Pitch black coloured body with a medium sized brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts, pit fruit and a tiny bit of anise. Medium-bodied; Chewy feel with oatmeal very noticeable. Caramel follows shortly after and some pit fruits noticeable also. Overall, a good beer - well done and worth trying. Thanks to Andy for giving me this bottle. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle pulled from a Breckenridge Sampler Pack on 01-April-2005 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Good. Light aroma of burnt malt. Black. Flavor of popcorn and light coffee. This is very smooth and easy to drink. At a cheap price, it is a good session beer.
