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.

Skyview (5477) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 13, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Bob McFarland’s Liquors in McFarland, Wisconsin. Pours an opaque dark brown brew with a fast dissolving thin tan had that leaves behind a film film and a thin tan ring. Aroma of light toasted dark malk, some flowery hops, oatmeal, some coffee and roasted hazelnuts. Taste is full bodied, light carbonated with flavors of toasted malt, coffee, lactose and dark chocolate. Finish is slightly dry with a toasted malt aftertaste that lingers a little rough afterwards.

This sweet stout pours a eclipse black color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized beige foamy head, with good long lasting retention. Aroma is roasty malts, bitter chocolate and some vanilla. A medium bodied sweet stout. The malts are chocolate, coffee and roasty malts, there is some vanilla here as well. Nice balance. A very nice, very drinkable stout. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with a touch of lactic sweetness

Nice dark color. Light brown head with strong smell of oats and malt. Seems a little green to me. Slightly syrupy, sweet taste. Would like more coffee or chocolate flavor. Fairly thin in body.

cheap (5230) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2012
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.

Chicago trip. Sunday 23:25. On tap at Maduro in Madison. Black. Hints of burgundy in the dim light. Creamy head. Strong sharp aroma, lots of coffee. Creamy milk sweet stout. Milky with coffee and charcoal around the edges. Very nice.

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.

TomDecapolis (4618) - 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.

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!

CanIHave4Beers (3969) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Pours a deep dark chocolate color, basically black with a small but nice tight head. The aroma is very roasty almost like burnt starbucks style coffee beans, there is a little molasses sweetness in there as well with some mild chocolate notes. On aroma alone this beer beats the hell out of that Bully Porter. The flavor is sweet but not quite cloying, there is certainly some good mocha character and a bit of molasses. I’m not sure if there is any lactose sugar in this one but I would be more than willing to bet on it. After all this that burnt toast thing creeps up in the back and makes a serious impression at the finish. Generally speaking all the flavors work very well together here and it’s really kind of cool how the beer does the sweet at first then suddenly bitter and overly roasty thing.
