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.

Poured into sniffer. Color is medium almost dark brown with a nice tan light head. Aroma is strong of malts. Nothing really stands out. Has a nice bitter aftertaste. Pretty light for a stout.

I'm a stout lover, what can I say? This is a little on the light side, for a stout, but nutty. I normally expect a heavy mouthfeel with stouts, but this is more refreshing than heavy. The sweetness that most oatmeal stouts come with is present, complimenting the malt nicely.

pours clear medium dark brown with a nice creamy light beige head, some retention and lacing. cocoa powder, lightly sweet chocolate maltiness, some fresh roasty notes - coffee perhaps, light resin, slightly earthy, metallic, ashy and dusty. moderate carbonation - slightly foamy, light body - with a creamy mouthfeel, still, semi-sweet and ashy-green-earthy finish. a tad too sweet for my liking. fair sweet stout but clearly forgettable.

superspak (2203) - Michigan, USA - MAR 14, 2014
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 2/23/2014. Pours clear nearly pitch black color with a 2 finger dense tan head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roast, caramel, toast, dark bread, oats, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast malt and moderate hop notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roast, caramel, toast, dark bread, oats, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Moderate amount of earthy herbal/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roast, toast, dark bread, oats, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of dark/roast malt flavors with moderate hop presence; with nice robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy, smooth, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a very nice oatmeal stout. All around good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/roast malt and moderate hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

scoth (465) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Pours dark brown, black in the glass, with a thin rapidly diminishing tan hea d, very fine clinging lacing. Aromas of dark chocolate, toast, coffee and oatmeal. Medium body, velvety smooth, lightly dry. Lightly sweet, a hint of citrus, with a solid medium bitter finish. If youíre after something simple, bitter, and drinkable, it delivers.

Pretty standard stout. Mainly coffee and chocolate flavors. A bit thin for me. Not particularly memorable.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a very dark ruby color; Iím let down that itís not mostly pitch black. The head is a one finger mocha shade. Retention is decent, and nice lacing is left behind. S: Thereís a nice snap of roast here, along with a significant nuttiness. Hints of chocolate and oatmeal float around. Nothing special here, but it hits all the right notes a lighter oatmeal stout should. T: Actually, it tastes closer to a roasty brown ale than a stout. The start is strong in roasted flavor, before a finish of nuts and oatmeal. I know whatís missing from this brew, but itís hard for me to explain, so Iíll just say this: all the roast here need more ístoutyí flavor to balance it out. Just a bit more defined sweetness (like cream or chocolate) would go a long way toward making this really good. M: This is a lot drier and cleaner than I expected, with only a hint of lingering sweetness. The strong carbonation helps its drinkability cause, too. But you know what would really give it great drinkability? Better flavors. O: Eh.

Good looking pour: silky white head perched above a dark brown body.

Nose is dead on for the style: oats and roasty malts, vanilla, dry, a touch bready. Taste doesn't hit the same notes, unfortunately. Many of the above flavors are here, but they don't blend as they should. Carb level is a bit high as well, leading to an unsatisfying texture.

Some good things going on here. This is a totally respectable shelf beer which, although meager on the whole, is a step above most beer brewed here in Texas. One day this state will get its act together; until then, I'll keep spending my shelf beer dollars on brews from out of state.
