COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Oatmeal Stout is definitely a local favorite but it gets its origins from one of Londonís 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. Nitro like head. Black. Light. Watery. Mild roasty. Light chocolate. Tasty and Drinkable but not exactly ímemorableí. Good but simple I guess.

Tap at airport restaurant. The look is dark, garnet highlights, thick creamy tan nitro head. The smell is malty, burnt, roast, raisins, dark fruit, creamy, and decent. The taste is much the same, creamy and thick. A little plain.

Didnít say it was on Nitro, but the carbonation on this was very fine and flat like a nitro beer. Head was good as was the chocolate aroma. Body was dry with light roasted flavors. Chocolate didnít come back until the finish. It was the mouthfeel that put me off on this one.

Great chocolate/oatmeal taste. Great with pizza and/or wings. Although available in glass bottles, straight from the tap is the best experience

Caytinator (960) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Pint on tap. Itís a treat on nitro, standard lacing & head (tan). Nice creamy mouthfeel, light in alcohol, interesting oatmeal finish, that taste is mostly absent from the initial mouthfeel. Less complex than I was hoping, really not bad though. You get the oatmeal and thatís about it - i prefer it in a thicker style (porter, dude)

ben4321 (4027) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2014
Location: Draft at the Production Facility Tasting Room, 3/8/14

Aroma: The nose is balanced and malty, roast, chocolate, oatmeal, and some hops
Appearance: This one pours a dark brown color with a reddish hue, and a light brown head
Flavor: The taste is roasty and malty, lightly sweet, with a later light hop for balance
Palate: The body is medium-plus, it has a smooth, creamy mouthfeel, and a soft carbonation
Overall Impression: I found this one to be a pretty tasty oatmeal stout. This was well-made and drank nicely. Good job here.

phaleslu (6608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2014
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.

tkrjukoff (4082) - SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2013
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 couldnít 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.

dwyerpg (4579) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 28, 2013
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 iím not particularly fond of.
