COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich in color with a strong body and a very creamy texture, the Oatmeal Stout is a true beer lover's brew. The slight hop aroma distinguishes this stout from any other. The Oatmeal Stout is robust, full of body and flavor, and topped off with a creamy light brown head.

Extremely enjoyable, even in warm weather, which is unusual for a stout. Rich coffeeish flavor with a little toffee also. Very roasty! Nice.

Indra (2657) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 19, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2003 Very chocolatey aroma, some toffeeish sweetness and just a hint of roasted coffee. Deep ebony in color, with a very fine, rapidly diminishing dark tan head. Flavor profile also has plenty of chocolate and toffee with some dark brown sugary sweetness and developing just a tinge of hop flavors towards the end. Roasty, moderately bitter finish. Light-medium body, palate is fairly thin and watery. Not really a strong example of the style as it could really use some texture and body to help compliment the flavors.

Dry, yet some brown sugar and oats in the flavor. The aroma is full and roasty. The body is too thin in my opinion. The finish is a tad sour. Highly infused with lactose. A very average, plain oatmeal stout, but it's not unpleasant.

A recipe for Grays Oatmeal Stout: Start with about 2/3 of a pint of Heartland Farmer Jon's Oatmeal stout. Add 1/3 of a pint of water. Stir. This beer is now ready to enjoy, in all it's thin, weak glory. I suppose this beer is a good "gateway stout" for people who aren't into real beer yet, but this fell short for me.

Dark color with a nice choclatey aroma. A choclate and coffe flavor were just a bit present, and continued though the end.

This is the first oatmeal stout I had that actually tasted like I was drinking a bowl of Quaker Oats. Different to say the least. Not bad, it's sweet, nice black, stouty. Pretty good stout.

WabashMan (1014) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAR 8, 2003
This one is pretty good as sweet stouts go, though not overly impressive. I like a little more KICK to my sweets, and this one lacked something to really make it stand out. Good, nevertheless.

JMerritt (1841) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2003
Very dark brown in color. Head = null. Aroma of chocolate syrup, some roasted coffee. Flavor has an initial and underlying chocolate sweetness that follows through to the end. Intermingled is roasted coffee and malt. Very nice.

ElGaucho (2240) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2003
Sweet coffee aroma with a hint (promise) of hops. Average-sized, tan head, though mostly diminishing. Brown body; fully opaque. Very good flavor, with almost a perfect amount of bitterness for a stout. However, as it warmed a pervasive diacetyl taste dominated the finish, causing a point deduction. Still, very solid.

Dark brown with almost no head (but what head it had was also very dark). Sweet smell, and a taste of oatmeal and coffee. Good stuff.
