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.

Draft in a taster at the Wilson Taproom. Pours a deep brown-amber with a small tan head. Notes of roasted and toasted malts, earth, oatmeal, and dry flakes of dark chocolate. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Good oatmeal stout.

Pours brown black with a good tanned head. Sweet lightly roasted fruity a bit acidy aroma as is flavor where sweetness is more intense. Drinkable but I couldn’t drink many of these since I find it a bit too sweet.

JBoan (176) - Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2013
On tap @ brewery/ Nitro. Pours black with mocha head. Smells of roasted coffee, burnt malts, chocolate and hints of oatmeal. Good flavor, roasted malts and coffee with a bitter aftertaste. Not as balanced as other oatmeal stouts but not a bad beer.

A nice creaminess to the aroma with some roast. This is a pretty solid beer. A noticeable roastiness with a really faint hint of coffee but also grains. A solid beer of a style i’m not particularly fond of.

Creosote and prune aroma. Clear, very dark, not opaque. Lightly sweet, sugary, cresotic. Medium body. A little disappointing. On tap, brewpub.

chinchill (1364) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 3, 2013
On nitro-tap at the brewpub. Pours with a huge head that quickly recedes to a proper size top coat. The color is virtually black with dark ruby highlights. The head sticks around and keeps the glass thoroughly coated until the pint is slowly drained. Smells of roasted malts with a hint of chocolate. Mildly sweet. Taste: Roasted malt, oatmeal and choclate flavors up front followed by darker malts and more chocolate flavor. Mildly bitter ending. A bit light flavored but otherwise very nice. Mouthfeel: great, thanks in part to the nitro. Light and semi dry; creamy smmoth. Overall: a very fine Oatmeal Stout with a great look and feel. Worth seeking out on nitro.tap.

Jow (1862) - New York, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Tap at Main Ingredient. Pours delicious looking dark brown with thin head that lasts. Nose milk chocolate. Tastes of smooth subdued milk chocolate, roasted malts, heavy cream, light vanilla, and a tangy finish. Nice creamy mouthfeel yet light. Tasty

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Tap @ Four Peaks Tempe. Pours a fairly clear, deep brown appearance with a light brown head. Dark bakers cocoa, light coffee, a bit vanilla, roasty aroma. Oaty, dark chocolate, touch fruity flavor. Light bodied. Pretty decent.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Draft @ Four Peaks. Dark brown almost black with a creamy, light tan head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee mostly with some sweet caramel and light fruit. Flavor is rich chocolate malt with dark roasted coffee and a mild malt sweetness. Medium body with a creamy mouth feel. Good stout, rich and creamy.
