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.

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.

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.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 7/20
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

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Kevin (2069) - New Mexico, 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.
