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.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2005 Had it on nitro spygat at the brewpub in Denver and liked it very much. Roasty-toasty but definitely not sweet. This is much more of a dry stout or even an extra stout but I did not taste the oatmeal like that in Sammy’s. 8,4,8,3,13 re-rate (5-27-05):Pours pitch black(passed the flashlight test) with a lite brown dense head. Aromas of burnt mollasses, dried fruits, coffee and milk chocolate. Silky smooth body if not a bit lite. Flavors are not nearly as complex as the nose would lead you to believe. Mostly coffee flavors with a dry hoppy bitter finish. Not bad but could be a lot better with some extra character malts. Well crafted.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 The dark, translucent color of this brew looks gorgeous in the glass, and smells like black coffee and malt. It tastes a little like it too, with some bitter chocolate and hops thrown in. Did I say bitter? Yes, it is! It tastes pretty good, actually, but it’s just too thin and weak for me. Even out of the bottle, this is a little thin on the palate. That is the reason I give it a lower rating. It looks good, smells good, and tastes ok, but it’s just too thin and weak. I would expect to need a fork for something this dark, that tastes like coffee and hops! Oatmeal stout? I don’t find it, and sweet stout is much more appropriate. Compared to other oatmeal stouts I’ve tried this one is a bit thin and watery. I like the very dry taste, even though it reminds me of Guinness in the bottle, but it isn’t something I crave or would buy again unless it was really cheap.

Kind of weak. Medium bitterness. Standard stuff in a stout, chocolate, oatmeal, coffee, this was really disappointing in that there was absolutely nothing original here. It was like they followed a homebrew recipe. Light bodied.

It was very beautiful in the glass. Classic dark, thick frothy brown head. The taste was very chocolatey, I didnt get a whole lot of oatiness in it. Very thin for a stout, left something to be desired. Are ’oatiness’ and ’chocolatey’ even words?

decent stout, nice roasty flavor, but seems a bit thin up against the competition.

joet (2056) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - FEB 11, 2002
This started with a prominent fruit sour aroma that was disconcerting, it got better. Some alkaline cocoa aroma, a solid bitter finish. Slightly wet to feel. Lacks some of the creaminess of oatier or nitro stouts.

The first taste is terrible, the second taste is a little better. I still can’t take a sip without shuddering a little.

Chocolate and beer do not belong with oatmeal. Not even Wilford Brimley would approve. There are other stouts I would rather have if given the choice.
