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.

Thin body is nothing like a stout! Tasted like a good oatmeal stout---that was cut 50% with tap water. This is my second, and last Gray’s brew. They are not in the same universe with MI craft ales.

Full of fizzy, noisome carbonation, much like a soda pop. In fact, it smells almost like a cola if you will it. But mostly it smells like chocolate and vanilla. My favorite thing about stouts is dipping my nose in them to get that roasted grain goodness to pervade my nostrils. Some hop phenols, harsh tannins, tree bark, grass, and, of course, coffee are all detectable. Caramel is a big player in this beer and that turns me off; I don’t like sweet stouts. It otherwise has a good mouthfeel: thin and sluggable. Overall, not an impressive beer.

Plenty of roast flavor; slightly sour finish. It’s drinkable, but fairly unremarkable for the style.

Thanks to Skyview. Dark pour with a creamy light tan head. First whiff is of milk chocolate. Oatmeal is also noticeable on the nose. Some type of stale liquorice present in the taste along with oatmeal and coffee.

BVery (9579) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 6, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 BOTTLE: nearly black pour, noticeable carbonation on the pour. Aroma is roasty, taste is roasty without a lot of other elements, noticable carbonation, and the body is a little thin. Wouldn’t describe as a creamy texture. Good beer, but not a great sweet stout.

Dry and one dimensional. Not a quality oatmeal stout. Burnt toasted aroma a flavor. Dark amber brown color. Light bitter initial flavor with light bitter finish. Average duration with a medium body. Dry texture ans soft carbonation. Very forgettable.

Dark in color with a brown head. Malty aroma with hints of coffee and roasted malt. It is a good beer.

Poured a redish brown. Roasted coffee aroma. Initial flavor is very weak almost watery. Roasted malt finish. Not very well balanced. If you want a good Stout, I’d pick up some Bells Double Cream Stout.

Merrill (79) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2009
Pours not quite black with a thin brown head that dissipates quickly. Very light or thin aroma with coffee and burned oak. Flavor is immediately coffee and roast malt with notes of cacao and a flinty wood flavor. The flavor is somewhat thin, like an English Porter, but quite palatable; somewhat dry, but not sour like Guinness. Good attempt by a local Brewery.

Dark brown pour, not really black but some blackness in it. White head that dissappeared pretty much immediately. A slim amount of lacing is present however. Some roasted malt, more chocolate in the nose. A little thin and watery throughout. The flavors are mocha, coffee some roast malt, but they are unfortunately subdued by the thinness. Some oatiness, makes for a nice finish. There is potential here if they could just build up the body a bit. The plus is this would be quite sessionable.
