COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Oatmeal Stout is definitely a local favorite but it gets its origins from one of London’s oldest breweries. The Oatmeal Stout differs from the popular Irish stout in its more subtle roastiness and subdued dryness. The addition of flaked oats rounds out these sometimes harsh characteristics producing a velvet smooth ale. This black stout has a flavor profile unique to all of North America. Subtlety is not a strong point as it is a stout after all, rich and eminently drinkable.

On nitro tap at Four Peaks in Tempe, pours black with a small creamy tan head. Aroma brings out hearty oats but in a pretty weak fashion. Flavour brings out oats, dry cocoa and some bready malt. Smooth on the palate, but very unexciting and quite lifeless. Meh.

Draft sample at the source from notes. Pours dark brown in color with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, powdery dark chocolate, a splash of coffee, light earthy notes and some creamy sweetness from the oats, decent enough.

A Nice dark pour, opaque with a bubbly tan head Aroma of bread, roast nuts. a nice dry taste profile, goes down easily like chilled coffee, enough hop notes to keep it from being over malty. A good session beer

Pours a clear black with red hues and a gorgeous brown creamy head. On Nitro at the airport location... Lots of roasted malts, chocolate, creamy coffee and latte. Taste is much of the same with the roast balanced nicely with the sweeter tones and a brilliant creamy mouthfeel and finish that’s semi dry. Great beer!

Black with off white head. Toasty aroma. Taste as a stout should not too big. Even on hot day was real good nice beer.

On tap at a Four Peaks bar in Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix. The pour is looking like nitro. Black with a dense tan head and sporadic lace. The aroma is chocolate malts and great roast. Light though. The flavor mimics it. Roasty, but light. The mouth feel is thin and slick with not a lot of carbonation. The aftertaste is lingeringly roasty. Not awful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Roasted malts and some fresh toast character in aroma, nice thick half inch head you could float a cap on. Flavor of coffee malts and dried oats with some hidden dark fruits.

On draft. Black pour with one finger beige head. Coffee aroma. Taste is more oats, coffee. A little thin, but still good.

Draft at the source. Near black body with a thin, lasting beige ring atop. Aromas is pretty weak. Chocolate with some bready notes. Light bodied, even thin, with soft carbonation. Could use a few tweaks.
