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.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2003 the first bottle smelled like dog treats. but the second... smelled like blueberries. a pleasant coffee taste with traces of semi-sweet chocolate and blueberry flavors. it is slightly bitter, with a nice mouthfeel--although it could be a bit thicker. i'd drink this again.

Attractive aroma, touch of hop perfume as well as some roasted and sweet grain smells. Nice smooth malt flavor, nice tongue coating oatiness, percievable roast charater. Strong chocolate malt character. Very good sweet stout. A touch overcarbonated.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Appearance: dark black color, with reddish tinges, under a thick, toasted tan head. Aroma: magnificent! Richly roasted, deep and dark, with hints of anise and chocolate, whiskey, even, I very much enjoyed this smell and kept my snoot in it for as long as I could bear. Marvelous presence on the palate, nicely carbonated, good hops, but the flavor leaves too quickly, and the body thins out too fast. The promise found in the aroma isn’t quite delivered in full in the flavor. Medium to full body, with less of a finish than I’d like. Too mellow, with too bare a flavor. I found myself loving it at the start, and less pleased while I was drinking it. If not for that, this would be an oatmeal stout I’d be most happy to have around, day-in, day-out!

Opaque with a great aroma of chocolate chip cookie dough! Flavor is a little simplistic... sweetl malt and chocolate with a bit of oat. It got a little cloying near the end, but this is some fairly good stuff.

Bottle. Pours fairly black with an attractive, dense tan head. Aroma has a bit of piny hops, but mostly showcases coffee, brown sugar, and a touch of mocha. Nice toasty flavor profile with hints of almonds, chocolate, a bit of the gas-station-"cappuccino machine"-concoction. Nice and creamy all around, good balance, even a very subtle hop tap at the end. The mouthfeel is superb for a beer of medium density such as this. The carbonation is reasonably low and the beer seems to just flow alongside my palate like silk. Good work here.

An old favorite....pours almost black with a reddish tinge; sweet / burnt (good thing) taste; sweet nose. Hints of coffee and chocolate to me...a good one...will have another
