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.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 28, 2004
Poured opaque with a dark brown head...smells alcohol first, then coffe, then something sour?...tastes very thin with alcohol being the first thing I tasted...it did give way to a nice coffee taste though...definately dry bitter finish...

sfontain (770) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Nearly opaque black, initially large, dark tan head that quickly disappears. Aroma is coffee and a hint of dark fruit; tiny bit of alcohol/astringent smell. Flavor is sweet, coffee, vanilla, slightly ashy. Feels a little thin but not, as somebody previously stated, "The Budweiser of stout." Not the worst stout I’ve had, but far from the best.

MagikLair (9) - Alexandria, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2004 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2004 Weak coffee aroma, watery and thin for a stout, overall not very good. Its a weak Stout with only 5% alcohol.... The Budweiser of pale ales

Kevin (2037) - Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Bottle. Black with a tan head that laces down the glass. sweet chocolate aroma. Oily mouthfeel hits me before the taste can register. bitter roasted malt flavor. not a sweet as i expected from the aroma. more hop flavor than i generally like in my stouts, rerate some time in december of 06 Black body with a brown gray head. Cocoa nose that is invitingly sweet with a hint of roast flavor. A decent enough stout. A chunk of chocolate, a doughy roast flavor, a bit lactic, and all around enjoyable. Caramel in the finish with a bit of banana and more chocolate. Bitter roast flavor ands enjoyment and balance to this. A pleasure to drink. 4 7 7 4 16

(Bottle) Pours an ebony color with a small tan head. Aroma of semi-sweet chocolate and rasted coffee beans. Flavor is complimentary to the aroma.

argo0 (11181) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Big beige head atop a red-clack body. Aroma is medium sweet, roasty, coffee, some chocolate. Taste is mild sweet, roasty coffee, some chocolate, finishes coffee bitter. Some hops in there as balance. Medium body, somewhat creamy. Not very sweet for a sweet stout.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2004
Dark brown/black, medium head and good lacing. Starting off at the front of the taste, it was sweet and moderately thick, then gaining a strong roastyness and a fair hop presence in the finish.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 17, 2004
Dark opaque appearance, dense head formation. Fruity, strong malt aroma, pastey, well roasted. Fairly eas drinking on the palate, good coffee roast, berry-like fruit, fair bitter bite in the finish. Quite a bit to talk about on the palate but nothing substantial. Just lacking a little.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 14, 2004
pours a deep black with dark red notes. head is light brown and short-lived, but laces well. aroma is sweetly malty, with suprisingly subdued roast notes. flavor is smooth and balanced, with maltiness fading in to a roasty bite with good hop bitterness. mouthfeel relatively full and oily, somewhat balanced by a roast/licorice bite. ok drinkability

SiddFinch (155) - Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2004
Bittersweet chocolate and subtle coffee notes. Not as creamy and the flavor a little thin compared to some of its counterparts, but a very drinkable stout.
