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.

IPagan5 (101) - San Marcos, California, USA - MAR 24, 2015
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.

Huhzubendah (2856) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 28, 2015
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.

Arthree (19) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
Sample tray at Scottsdale location. Opaque, black, hints of brown at the edges. Fine lingering beige head. Nitrogenated? No aroma. Tastes watered down, sweet fruit, a bit of roasty malt. Rotten apples, burnt coffee. Thin. Very disappointing. Highly overrated on this site or the location waters down the draft. Either way, stout lovers should skip it.

Fatehunter (1615) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Pours a finger and half of head on a black body. The aroma is mild roast. The taste is slightly sweet overall with mild roasty flavor. The texture is smooth with low carbonation. It’s great looking and feeling with average flavor.

wedgie9 (2504) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Tasted on 5/14/13 on draft at the brewpub. Pours nearly black deep brown with a thick, smooth tan head, almost looks like a nitro pour, that slowly recedes to thick, even lace. The nose is nicely roasted, some nibs, dark chocolate, and just a touch of coffee. The flavor has just a touch of dark chocolate syrup sweetness up front, moving to all of the expected roasted dark chocolate, nib, and coffee bitterness. The body is full and creamy with just under average carbonation and a long roasted bitter coffee finish.

ajnepple (3129) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2014
On tap at the brewery in Tempe. Black appearance with a tan head. Aroma and flavor is rich with roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Medium body with a smooth, creamy feel and a light dry finish.

beerbaaron (1609) - Arizona, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Draft. Nitro like head. Black. Light. Watery. Mild roasty. Light chocolate. Tasty and Drinkable but not exactly ’memorable’. Good but simple I guess.
