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.

Very dark brown in color. Head = null. Aroma of chocolate syrup, some roasted coffee. Flavor has an initial and underlying chocolate sweetness that follows through to the end. Intermingled is roasted coffee and malt. Very nice.

Pours a leathery brown settles nearly black with slivers of brown coming through the edges. Finger high head of tannish bread thickness that faded kinda fast, almost fizzy, to a thin open haze on top. Lace in sparitic fast dripping strings and spots. Aroma is quite nice, deep and roasty, darkly sweet, dark milk chocolate, cocoa, and coffee are all present and pleasant. Taste has a milder flavor then expecting compared to the smell, but a favorable mixing of roasty dark malts, coffee, and lighter chocolate, the usual tangy sweetness that I like to have in an oatmeal stout really doesn't come through for me, a bit much on the coffee, which isn't bad, just was hoping for that oatmealy sweetness. Hop bitterness adds to some of the finish which finishes with a bittered tangyness mixed with coffee dryness which helped it become a bit more enjoyable. Feel has a pretty empty start, kinda thin but builds nicely of coffee, smoothly calming out and getting close to full over the top, and has a coffee drying with a tangy little roasty finish that lingers. I'm a bit torn with this one, it was close to getting the next lowest number in smell and taste but I became intrigued with its finish and it began to grow on me so I made an exception. Would like to put this up against a couple of my favs, Black Widow & Lk. Superior Sir Duluth or even Slow Elk to see where it fits in. A pretty good oatmeal stout none-the-less.

The color a soot-black with ruby high lights, the head is portly in size, creamy in consistency and the color a nice chocolate color the lace forms a fines covering for the glass. Nose is lightly toasted grains, hints of coffee, malt sweet with the start sweet and rich in malt, top is medium to full. Finish is mild to moderate in carbonation the hops personable, quite dry and long lasting, a quite nice stout, mild and pleasant to quaff.

Nice littlie stout. Sweets and clean. Really sweet. Not so much on the chocolate front. Gives Lefts hands mike stout a run for its money at 40% less. I will buy a 6 pack for sure.

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

The Mircrobreweries of Wisconsin are making better, and better beer, and this is a great example, rich flavor, smooth finish.

Not too strong of an aroma, but the flavor was nicely full-bodied, with a raisin-y / coffee taste. Recommended! I had a bottle at the Water Street Brewery (in Milwaukee), unsure if local stores carry it.

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