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.

Fruity, weak in body. Caramel flavors, not too strong. I haven’t been having luck with this style lately.

3fourths (8593) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2003
Pitch black with a light tan head. Smells incredibly strong and rich... thick french roast coffee and licorice, and a small amount of hickory smoke flavor. Feels thick and oily, sludge basically... really impressing me. The oatmeal flavor is mild, not artificial and not transparent. It really tastes like it belongs in this stout. Syrupy and sweet finish rounds out a great sweet stout.

DocLock (8526) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2006
Thanks to buckybeer for this one. Pours onyx with 1-finger tan head. Aroma of roasty dark malt, chocoff, and molasses. Tastes chocoffy, with a molasses, almond, and roasty malt finish. This one is good.

BVery (7952) - 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.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Bottle via a trade with fidelis86. Pours with a tan head and a deep brown body. Aroma of oatmeal, caramel, chocolate and rum. Taste is caramel, toasty and a bit roasty. Medium bubbles, somewhat creamy.

Ughsmash (7361) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 19, 2006
Bottle. Poured a very deep mahogany, almost black with a quickly-receding beige head. Big, sweet aroma of chocolate, lactic notes, and coffee. Flavor picked up pretty much the same stuff, but with a lower intensity... Rather light on the palate, with a bitter roasted coffee finish. Smooth and easy drinkin’, but wish it had a little more body.

Sweet roasted flavor covered by a thin brown head. Good density and a smooth finish. A flavorful and drinkable oatmeal stout.

BBB63 (6440) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Deep brown hue with ruby highlights which porduced a good creamy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of caramel and chocolate malts, hazelhut, grains and oats, floral hops, and a touch of coffee. The taste starts bittersweet with malty and lactic character. Undertones of mocha, vanilla, and lightly nutty. The finish is bitter with coffee tones. The mouthfeel is smooth and lively, a touch thin. Good and quaffable stout. Should have bought another bottle.

Pailhead (5633) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of Duane via trade. Lots of sweet chocolate and caramel dominate the aroma with some light coffee. Pours a dark brown with no transparency and a minimal tan head that quickly fades to a ring. Flavor is nowhere as big as the aroma. Flavors is some watered down chocolate and caramel with an even lighter coffee presence in the background. Light bitter smokey finish. Got off to a good start with the aroma, but the flavor was quite a let down. Thin mouthfeel with very light carbonation.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2006
Just how does one brew a beer that has no aroma? I thought perhaps I was stuffed up, but frankenkitty confirmed that there was little to be smelled. Pours a watery deep brown with slight ruby highlighting and no head at all. The flavor is an improvement, some roasted barley, a little coffee, a suggestion of chocolate... but a bit thin. Finishes on a rusty, watery note.
