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.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2009
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.

JK (4614) - 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 didn’t expect it to be as good as it was, I never heard of gray’s. Not so "stout" at 5 and change, but still in the top of its class.

TomDecapolis (4546) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 6, 2007
Pours a dark brown with ruby amber highlights. Head was very small even with an aggresive pour. Bubbly and light tan with hints of lacing. Aroma of hot chocolate, creamy milk chocolate, hints of cappucino, some lactose, oatmeal and sweet malts. One of the most up front milky chocolate beers based on the aroma. Flavor of light coffee, more bitter tasting chocolate, some sweetness, oat and malt. Leaves a lingering roastiness in the mouth.

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.

Yet another reason why Wisconsin qualifies as the Most Underrated Beer State. In addition to Lakefront (the best brewery in the USA, wanna make something of it?), Rowlands (haven’t tried, but hope to soon!), New Glarus, Sprecher, Leinenkugels, we have this, one the the best sweet stouts in the world. Intensely vinous, coffee-and-caramel flavours vying for dominance, a lot going on in this one! 12/2001 rerating (bottle); not as sweet as I remember it from last year, but still very winey, with lots of coffee and roasted grain flavors as well. I downgraded it just a tad, but still holds its own with the best of them. 9/02 pretty close to last rating; great sweet stout, verging on the robust in its hoppier finish. On Wisconsin!

From a bottle pours interestingly appealing, makes my mouth water. No sediment and it smells rather roasty fresh. Nice sizzly initial impressions, not over the top in flavor. Seems much more like 4% than 6. Some fun tartness, in a wild way, inthere. Leaves a good impression on the plalate after each slug. No rude ness on the finish. And its cheap too; pretty close to being a really good beer! Liked this one; rather mild and well behaved cheap dark beer. Good one grays ;~) Good example of a drinkable dark beer.

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

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2008
Dark black with medium thin head. Aroma of oatmeal, coffee, roasted malts. Sweet malt taste of caramel and oatmeal. Smooth and creamy with very little bitterness.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 18, 2007
12 oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with only a bit of orange light getting through. Head was tan and two fingers high, but dissipated relatively quickly to a thin film. Smelled of chocolate and molasses with a hint of roasted malt. There was a fleeting sweetness on the tongue which was quickly replaced by a pleasant dry roastiness. Some milk chocolate came out in the background. Not a bad beer.

bottle - Pours near black with a one finger tan head. It has an aroma of dark roast malt and chocolate. The flavor includes some good roast chocolate malt. I thought this beer was a little on the thin side for a stout and could use more body, but it tastes good and is easy to drink.
