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.

Decent head atop a fairly light brown/red body. The aroma was like a malting floor. Creamy and smooth, with oats, malt and milk chocolate.

Slight taste of oatmeal apparent. Almost no head--disappointing for a stout. Tastes fine, but has a meaty, almost manure-like odor that shouldn’t be in a beer. Decent bitterness obscures the fact that there aren’t really many flavors besides the generic stout roast/coffee. This is too thin for a stout, and I would be more apt to classify it as a dry stout than a sweet stout. Tastes somewhat salty.

black as mink, with footnotes of umber. the head was mostly creamy but embedded with big bubbles, and as a visual accoutrement it managed a lingering lushness that almost audibly sings out: "drink me!" nose is mostly a slab of baker’s chocolate, burnt raisins, and cedar-leaf cigar wrapper. very smooth and nicely sweet: roasted oat -cluster granola washed down with coffee. alot of bitterness spreads out from that initial impact of lite fruitiness. nice, sure, but like a ten pound guard dog, perhaps just a bit weak.

The aroma really breaks free when it is quite warm, but even before that, I sensed a nice jokt of chocolate, coffee, and above all roasted/toasted flavors. A bit harsh, too bitter in the end, but I have few complaints to make about the palate. Decent stff.

I haven’t really found a stout I can tolerate, besides Sam Adams Cream Stout and of course, the ubiquitous Guiness. The smell of ummm trash eminating from the beer was not a good sign and neither was the the tingling sensation in the back of my throat that wouldn’t stop.

It tastes like a watered-down stout. It feels like a watered-down stout. It must be a watered-down stout. Not terribly good. The flavor that’s there is decent, but there isn’t much of it to be had. No oatmeal flavor whatsoever...

Watery, weak, Disappointing flavor. Good aroma and apperance leads up to disconcerting lack of real flavor. With no aftertaste.

Black as tar, but not as thick. This is porterish in viscosity. Somewhat sweet, but not overly so. Expected sweeter for an oatmeal stout. Coffee malt flavor comes on strong. Bitter, but pleasant. Nice roast flavor. Good.
