Can you escape the pull of our Collapsar Oatmeal Stout? Coffee-like roasted flavors are smoothed by the addition of oatmeal. Like our Irish brethren, we infuse our stout with nitrogen gas for a creamy head that “collapses” when poured.

5 oz tulip taster glass draft at the Burg and Barrel in Overland Park, Kansas. The pour is nitro brown black with a solid nitro light tan head. Thick coating on the glass as the beer drinks down. The aroma is soft roast along with a bit of sweetish toast. The taste is very Guinness like with soft char roast along with some softly sweet malt and a mineral finish. The palate is light bodied, oat silk, nitro flatness and the mineral finish. Decent as a Guinness tribute.

Dark black. Ok stout. The nitro combined w oatmeal create a thick tasty and creamy head. Id prefer a heavier body to this.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2014 This oatmeal stout’s gone Irish! The first thing I noticed about Collapsar was the nitrogen-infused texture. It makes the tan head frothy and the cocoa and coffee aromas come through nicely. The gas and the oatmeal also create a mouthfeel that is about as sleek as beer can get. While all of these technical factors are nearly perfect, I wanted a lot more flavor in this brew. The tastes are nice - rich coffee and very slight touches of chocolate - but I wanted them to be bolder and more unique. All the same, Collapsar is an above-average stout.

This beer is almost definitely getting a boost because i had it on nitro. Black with a off white head. Lots of roasty malt and coffee aroma. Smooth and creamy (on nitro) with a nice malty background and some roast coffee. I don’t honestly know if this would be very good from a bottle but it’s decent here

On tap at the brewery. Black with a tan head. The aroma is roasted malts, coffee and oats. Similar flavor with a medium body and a super smooth creamy feel.

[Tap] Part of a sampler at Lazlo’s in Omaha. Pours a very dark shade of brown. Not much head, but decent lacing as you drink it. Roasted malt aroma features some chocolate and mocha. Dark malts, coffee, sweet milk chocolate, lactose and oats linger throughout. A tad thin. About what I expected.
