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.

I should exempt myself from rating this beer, coming as I do from the stouty NW. Back when I was a grad student at Madison, though, I useta love to sit at the student union and drink this, watching the poor health nuts swimming in the lake. Iíd generally call it a good stout, but on a summer day at the student union, itís great.

Brings back memories of college days. Thin flat body, but excellent sweet chocolate and oat flavor.

This beer pours a very dark brown body with a small, tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aromas of dark chocolate dominate, with some coffee, oatmeal, and damp earth in the background. On the palate, itís fairly light and easy, with oatmeal and chocolate flavors being tempered by a gentle, but noticeable sourdough-like tartness. Itís medium in weight, medium-light in carbonation, fairly dry, and gently acidic. Overall, itís okay, but Iíd prefer a bit more richness and intensity without the light tartness.

Headbanger (3555) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2014
12oz bottle Old Notes-Pours dark brown with a decent head. Aroma of roasted malt, sweetness, coffee, and chocolate. Taste of the same but pretty mild. This light to medium bodied brew was a pretty basic stout but a bit mild.

patrick767 (3741) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2013
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.

fiveacestx (824) - Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle - Nice dark brown color with a tan head. Very fizzy. Had a nice malty chocolate coffee taste and aroma but it was a little on the thin side and had an ashy aftertaste. Maybe a just got a bad one.

jgb9348 (5168) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2012
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.

Ericular (848) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Pours dark brown with fizzy head that is very short lived, leaving nearly no trace and no lacing. After 60 seconds it looked like soda. The aroma is really good - chocolate and roasted coffee. Taste is pretty mild and plain for the style. Just light amounts of roasted coffee, with not much complexity or aftertaste. Not terrible, but nothing noteworthy here.

Zodanga (26) - Alabama, USA - SEP 11, 2012
A dry beer, with chocolate undertones, a bit of fizz and somewhat tart aftertaste. It does pour and look good, but was lighter tasting than I expected. Not much of an aroma either. It makes for a cheap and decent oatmeal stout (under $9 for a 6-pk), but I donít think Samuel Smith has much to worry about.
