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.

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.

Bottle at jeffc666ís Birthday Gathering. Courtesy of ???. Dark brown to near black body with a small tan head. Nose is roasted malts with light grains/oatmela and light smoke notes. Taste is smokey with roasted malts light sweetness and a hint of hops. Body is slightly bitter with a medium carbonation feel and some smoothness. Finish is more roasted malt and cocoa. Not as bad as I was expecting.

12oz bottle. Red-brown black color. Minimal beige head. Dry, oaty stout aroma. Smooth, medium bodied. Pleasant chocolate edge to it. Dry and crisp, almost sandily bitter. OK.

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.

Roasty/sweet in aroma. The flavor is malty and smooth with a mildly bitter finish. Solid Oatmeal Stout.

JK (5650) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2004 Aroma of coffee and malt. Black and thick with a small head that left a lace. Flavours of bitter coffee, very well done so that you know it is there but is not unpleasant or overpowering. Also some chocolate. A very heavy beer. I didnít expect it to be as good as it was, I never heard of grayís. Not so "stout" at 5 and change, but still in the top of its class.

Deep dark brown body with a large thick brown head. Aroma of super pungent roasted malt, caramel and a lot of nuts. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong roasty flavour with oats, caramel and even a bit of anise noticeable. Aftertaste shows a good and rather simple flavour of roasted oats, some light peat, a bit of nuts and a good caramel sweetness. Overall, a nice beer - not amazing, but a good sweet stout that would be nice to sample, even if you donít care for the style! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Three Cellars in Franklin, Wisconsin on 05-September-2012 for US$2.09 sampled on the train to New York (from Upstate) on 09-December-2012.

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.

A bit thin, but everything else is spot on. A good session ale.
