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.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Not sure when it was bottled. The label has the 6 puched out on the 1 through 12 scale, then the 3 is punched out after "week" which has a 1 to 5 scale. I pciked this up in Austin. Slightly oxidized nose with roasted malt. Taste is kind of smokey with some roastiness. Appearence is opaque black with a little brown. Leaves a nice head on top that retains nicely. Body is alittle thin. Aftertaste has a nice roasty bitterness. Pretty decent, but nothing to get excited about.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Had this one on tap at the brewery on my 30th birthday (yeesh!). A nice balance of sweetness and smoke. Highly recommended after a tour of Coors Field (Go Rockies! Let’s see some more purple in the clock next season!)

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Bottle - Pours a dark brown/black with almost no head. Aroma is sweet and of roasted malts and coffee. Flavor is of chocolate, roasted malt and with some smokiness. Thick in body. Finish is not that long and slightly sweet; not bitter at all. An OK, but not great stout.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 5, 2004
Zero head. Smooth, roasty, and smokey. Lots of licorice on the palate. Odd finish.

mohawksin (187) - Nebraska, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Dark, dark color, even up to the light, dark. Decent tan head. Very sweet smelling, chocolatey, coffee. Tasted like a sweet coffee, with a touch of chocolate. Very creamy and easy to drink.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Color, dark as the night, black as they come. Head is full, lush, cocoa-colored, long-lasting. Aroma: sweet, soft, creamy. Taste: full, rich, tasty, toasty, with a prodigious mouthfeel, satisfying texture, rich and delicious. Long, rewarding finish. A most marvelous stout, one I’d happily quaff again and again.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2005 Dark chocolate aroma. Thin head, good retention. Dark brown body. Taste is very very roasty, a plus. Bitterness needs some work. Slight soapy flavor throws the beer off a little. Drinkable.

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...

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
sfontain (802) - 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.
