COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
President Ulysses S. Grant’s (Uly to his friends) Chocolate Oatmeal Stout is what this ale is all about! As dark as the mines of Galena, this stout has a rich and creamy tanned head which leaves beautiful lacing in your glass as it is enjoyed. You will savor the profound notes of chocolate and roasted malt which dominate its flavor profile. Roasted coffee notes linger on the palate to entice the next sip!

12oz bottle. Brown-black body. Creamy beige head. Bigger side of medium bodied, very fresh and sessionable. Caramel, chocolate. Easy going, a touch watery, touch of roast. OK.

Bottle shared by nuplastikk...thanks Greg! - Pours dark brownish black with a foamy tan head. Nose is a bit of sour milk, smooth dark malt--though not a ton of pungency in the smell. Taste is smooth and mellow with dark bread malt, prominent oatmeal, and some chocolate. Thickish with a really smooth carbonation.

Tap at the brewpub. Dark pour with a frothy cream head. Lots of roasted coffee, mild chocolate, and some licorice. Smooth palate. Solid.

Thanks to Dembonz for bottle share. Pours a medium brown color with medium carbonation. Slight sweetness leads to a dry semi-bitter dark chocolate finish. Absolutely loved the aroma on this brew, solid stout.

Nearly opaque. Nice head. Nice lacing. Nice bitter toasted malt flavors. A very good stout.

Bottles picked up at the brewery. Poured near black with a moderately lasting dark beige head. The malt had the chocolate and licorice thing going on, which was pretty good. The hops were an herbal package that unfolded nicely. This was as expected for a sweet stout.

On tap at the Great Taste of the Midwest. The aroma touches on chocolate and coffee but not much else. Mildly chocolate and coffee flavor, mixed with water and seltzer. Meh.

Fresh on tap today at the brewery. Review from written notes, scoring to style... Jet black body, dark mocha tinged foam that sticks at the edges and leaves a little bit of spotty lacing. Retention is pretty good, the initial finger of foam slowly settled and faded to a sticky ring around the edges. Mellow roasty nose, dry bakers chocolate, dark roast coffee. Not harsh, mellow and aromatic. Lightly bitter, dry and roasty, supple creamy feel, fairly light bodied. Hits all the signature notes with coffee, unsweetened bitter dark chocolate, cream. Very flavorful and easy to drink, something i’d order another pint of for sure. Bottled version seemed to have more carbonation. Reviewed on: 08-04-2011
