COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark and roasty yet light and smooth as a fresh coat of snow, our Oatmeal Stout will kick your cabin fever and inspire you to toss another log on the fire.

Oh, what fun it is to ride through a flurry of flaked oats o’er a field of rich roasted malt flavors!

2015-12-19. Black body, small tan head. 3++ Moderate roast and dark malt. Similar flavour with nice roast character, dark malt base. Average plus body, good carbonation. Relatively straightforward enjoyable stout. 7/3/7/3/14 Bottle shared by DuctTape.

Bottle. Nose inky chocolate with plum and some sweetness, roast. Pours deep, dark brown that just makes it to black in the glass, head is sudsy tight light brown. Taste dry with dense, tiny carbonation and smooth, lasting roast that coats; nice dark chocolate, though less than expected, and layers of roast without any getting too dark (i.e., black). Expected more smoothness from the oats, but this isn’t that; body is very thick, very full, yes, but it’s a balance of malt and strong carbonation instead, without much tang or any acridity. Very nice, and would very easily adapt to a spicing regimen for a winter warmer. [2015.12.23: 3.6]

Bottle, enjoy by January 31, 2016.
Appearance: A short head is coaxed on a hard pour with mediocre retention. The body is opaque black, but looked clear on the pour.
Aroma: This smells like a used cigar ashtray with a dash of chocolate. Not very appealing.
Taste: Taste is watery, mild chocolate lingering at the end, but a bit astringent with a dash of smoke. Not appealing.
Palate: Watery.
Overall: What a lame beer. I don’t know if things changed at Great Lakes, but this beer wouldn’t have been released a few years ago. This is pretty bad.

For an oatmeal stout,this is pretty textbook what you want. Thick and rich mouth feel. Real full and not watered down. Dark black brown. Heavy oatmeal style scent and earthy taste as expected. Tap

Bottle to my trusty shaker glass, pours very deep mahogany red when held to strong light ,but could black to the average eye. Silky khaki two finger head with moderate lacing and slight retention. Aroma is really faint roasted malts. Taste is nicely balanced sweet to bitter, this balance is really impressive to me. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, silky mouth feel. Finishes dry. Tasting notes of molasses, coffee, roasted malt, vanilla and grass but none of these are predominate. This is the mother of session oatmeal stouts!

arminjewell (9210) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Pour on tap at Crunchy’s dark black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, lots of roast, bitter coffee, slight spice into a bit of oaty, lactose type notes. Taste was a mix of cocoa, roast, and coffee, bitter spice, grassy notes with a touch of dark fruit, finishing slightly roasted, slightly sweet.

A very sweet Stout. Pours a dark black with light head. Has a sweet taste with chocolate and coffee - not too much malt. A sweet milk chocolate taste with some coffee, grains, and malts. Not too much a strong aftertaste.

dmac (5232) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2015
12oz bottle from Xroads. Pours a black center with super dark brown edges and a smaller tight foamy head, a touch thin for an oatmeal stout. Aroma of chocolate malts, vanilla muffin, oats, whiff of coffee. Medium body, fizzy carbonation for an oatmeal stout that is. Flavor is ash, chocolate malts, milk, oats. Meh....

rondphoto (3624) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 11, 2015
bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Opaque black color, beige head that drops to a cover, sheets of lace. Taste is lightly roasted malt with the creamy quality of oatmeal that adds nice body. It grows a little as it flows to a lightly hopped finish, quite enough for balance. A solid lower alcohol stout.

Bottle. Aromas are burnt coffee, licorice, nuts and light ash. Tastes odd. The licorice and ashy coffee don’t mix well and there’s some odd dark fruit mixed in too. Thin body. Very little carb. Not my kinda stout.
