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.

Neraly opague hue with a dense tan head and very good lace. Aroma hinted of chocolate, vanilla, espresso, aromatic hops, and nuts. Didn't detect any oat on the nose. The taste was a different matter, sliky sweet upfront with a rush of chocolate, vanilla, and (there it is) oats! Good undertone of bitter and twangy hops. Some smoke also detected on the finish. While a bit thin, the mouthfeel is still lush and inviting. Damn nice stout with enough bitterness to keep from becoming coy and boring. Recommended.

Pours opaque. Nice medium-sized brown head that is long-lasting. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, deliciously roasted. Also some sweetness. Very dry, bitter finish. Pretty tasty -- more roasty than Guinness but not as smooth to me. The oatmeal seems to add a thickness and vanilla flavor that I haven't tasted often. Pretty decent.

Tasted like roasted vanilla; not in an artifical vanilla porter but a bean, grain malt sweet way. Nicely delicious.

Big oatmeal nose and flavor, some chocolate, hints of coffee. Dry finish. A short and sweet stout, a bit thin, but enjoyable.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 19, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2011 Sample size, on tap at the brewery: Black/brown with a thin head. Roasted malt aroma, full and smooth mouthfeel, thick robust taste, ends quick and dry.

This one pours like a cup of turkish coffee, black as a moonless night. Smells like coffee, something that you would want to consider drinking for breakfast. A little bittersweet on the first taste, but then it mellows into a typical stout, but never really comes across like the oatmeal stouts I have had in the past. Extremely full-bodied and rich, but not something I would seek out again.

(draught) Jet black; dark brown good head. Notes of coffee in the nose and oatmeal detectable, some burnt malts. Taste: impression of writing ink - weird. Quite bitter for an oatmeal, many roasted and burnt notes. Oatmeal seems to make it more bodied than it really is. I keep getting a thinnish texture in the end. Somehow the beer is OK in itself, but I think it is not quite up to style.

Poured black with brown head. Coffee and burnt flavors. Very toasty and bitter. Not really sweet, but mostly dry and bitter. A slightly above average stout.

First let me say that I am not that big of a fan of stouts. There was quite the nose of coffie. Black as night with a huge head. I would say a roasted flavor to it but as someone said earlier more of a smokey flavor. Thick feel to it.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2005 Jet black with a thick frothy tan head. Strong coffee aroma and flavor. Hints of smoke, coffee, and chocolate with a bitter finish. Rich palate and nice natural carbonation. This is a decent beer from an underrated brewery. Granted, my samples have come fresh from the brewery in Breckenridge. The bottled version from Denver lacks the same luster.
