COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full body and a well rounded flavor comes from a foundation of nine different grains. The oats add a special silky texture that complements the roasted malts. The rich malty flavor is spiced with plenty of Northern Brewer and Fuggles hops for balance.

APPEARANCE- pours nice an black, looks fairly tin, the head is thin with fine-ish bubbles but laces really nicely. NOSE- slightest hint of roastiness. FLAVOR- clean with light body. Slight bit of roasty malts in the flavor too. Nice long deep flavors, almost char, that stays in my mouth for quite a while after the sip. The palate may be the high point for this beer.

MetalNHopHead (1250) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Free State Oatmeal Stout: a part of this complete breakfast, at least according to my Sunday ritual. Damn me if it wasn’t the best part of it. This Oatmeal Stout pours a very dark brown with a cream-colored head. Aroma of cocoa, licorice, cream, and toasted barley. Flavor had more of the same with some subtle coffee and a slightly bitter finish from the hops. Not the richest Oatmeal Stout in the world, but an exquisitely balanced one.

DrunkSanta410 (810) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle at home, Thanks Brad! Black pour, light tan head. Average retention. Aroma is sweet, roasted chocolate malts, light fruit, licorice. Smells nice. Taste is toasted malts, cocoa, burnt caramel, a light bitterness on the back end. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, highly carbonated. Would have enjoyed this more with a bit thicker mouthfeel.

Pint on tap. Opaque black with a lasting sticky foam on top. Nose is light cocoa, berry and coffee with cream. Flavor is the same with a bit of earthy citrus in the long finish. Near-medium body is balanced and has a medium carbonation.

dlovell2 (1626) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 1, 2015
Gift from Maxbier. Pours dark brown/black with an amber tint around the edges and a tan head that quickly disappears. Aroma is roasted malt with caramel, chocolate, and earthy hoppiness. Flavor starts dark roasted malt and coffee with a slightly sweet caramel. Chocolate middle and finishing with an almost burnt flavor and roasted bitterness with an earthy hop finish. Lingering bitterness.
