COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our oatmeal stout is so named for the 10% oat content of the grist. As you taste this beer you will find coffee and dark chocolate as the dominating flavors with a slightly sweet finish.

StefanSD (2191) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUN 19, 2008
12 oz bottle from pepsican. Pours an opaque black color with a fine brown head. The aroma is rich with burnt malts, barley and some coffee. The flavor is uncomplicated with biter coffee. The mouthfeel starts a bit thin but builds out to a smooth creamy conclusion. The finish is extra dry witha bit of lingering burnt malts.Overall: A very drinkable dry stout. Recommended.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Extra from pepsican, thanks man. Aroma was some chocolate and a hint of roast. Flavor was big sharp coffee, and some creaminess and chocolate. Eventually the bitter coffee took over though and covered up all the other flavors in the beer.

decaturstevo (5215) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Burnt coffee and malt nose. Full deep almost black pour. Nice full flavored malt profile with large coffee and hints of coco. A bit fizzy and but a pretty solid palate. I liked the bitter on this one so I gave it an extra overall point.

JoeMcPhee (8565) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2008
Bottle shared by goldtwins. Dark black-brown beer with a thick dark brown head. Aroma is very roasty and a little bit earthy. Nice rich bitter chocolate flavour. Lots of sweet oat flavour on the back along with a heavy roasty bitterness. An oatmeal stout in the vein of McAuslan, rather than other types Iíve had. Lightly charry on the back. I like it.

ChainGangGuy (4422) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Appearance: Pours a black body with a small, wispy, khaki-colored head. Smell: Dark malt aroma with notes of roast, grain, and chocolate. Maybe even a perceived hint of oatmeal floating around in there, too. Taste: Dark malts with a dialed up burnt grain flavor which lends to a slight astringency throughout. Very subdued sweetness. Dry bittersweet chocolate, maybe, again, a vague oat component. Medium roasty, earthy bitterness which lasts till finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Itís okay! Not the most oatiest thing around, but as a standard stout, like I said, itís ok.

Stine (1628) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Fairly deep dark brown pour. Meaty, chalky, chocolate aroma. Cinnamon, and some harsh soaps. A mulchy earth quality warms it a little. Plastic like espresso ground astringency and withering tart fruit flavor. Thin, smooth palate; oats make an adequate effort to trim the sharpness that initially seems so imposing. A kick in the teeth of basic black patent bitterness. Dry flavorless finish. A very fundamental, average effort; no distinctiveness. Thanks Kyle!

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Bottle courtesy of pepsican. Pours brown with a tan head. Smells of dark malt, roast, some chocolate, hints of caramel and molasses. Tastes of bitter hops, pepper, some roast, watery, nutty. Too much bitterness and not enough malt character on this one.

JK (4614) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2009 Black. heavily roasted malt with some popcorn and oatmeal. Hint of coffee. Mild palate, and smooth. Ordinary but not bad.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Pours an oily opaque with dark mahogany edges and a thin, stringy tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty dark caramel and roasted malts with some coffee notes. Body starts with decent fullness and sticky sweet dark malts with a good balance of bittering hops and roasty coffee before a drier, bittersweet finish. A pretty nice oatmeal stout.
