Delicious. Nearly black with a thin brown head. Wonderful aroma of chocolate, coffee, cereal, and milk. Palate is a bit thin for a stout. Sweet and smooth. Notes of chocolate and coffee dominate. Finishes very smooth. A very nice stout.

From a 12 oz bottle. Best consumed by date on the bottle of 05-24-07. Pours almost black with virtually no head. Aroma of chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with chocolate, licorice and coffee notes. Probably way past its prime.

A solid outing from Goose Island. Oatmeal comes across nicely in the flavor but especially the mouthfeel which is fairly oily. Rich, chocolatey, with some roasted aroma.

A truly drinkable brew? What kind of tag line is that? As opposed to a marginally drinkable brew? Its decent - roasty, full mouthfeel, etc. and typical of an Oatmeal stout. At the price point not a bad deal either.

Beautiful dark pour with a thick, foamy head. Very rounded in color, with a deep dark color. Love the malty fullness of this stout, has a lot of caramel and chocolate notes. Can find in a bottle most shops in the right season.

Had some light chocolate notes and poured a decent cola color with minimal head. Taste was coffee up front then faded to a sweet chocolate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From notes. First reviewed 4/28/2010. Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Oatmeal Stout pours black, with an obvious burgundy tint. A soft manila head forms on pouring, leading to some soft lace stick. Nice retention. Bitter chocolate, a strong roasted malt character, and a slight nuttiness in the nose. Creamy roasted malt dominates the flavor. Softer coffee and chocolate presence as well. Mild nutty flavor. Nice roast bitterness at the end. Simple, but tasty. Moderately creamy, but carbonation makes it pop a little bit. Nutty flavor give is a slight oily residue on the back end. This gets better with every sip. Very drinkable. This is a good stout for a relaxed session. Dear GI, please reverse previously announced decision to stop bottling Oatmeal Stout, on account of tastiness.
