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.

tomer (1647) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAR 20, 2011
0.33L bottle, thick big brown head, opaque black colour, aroma of oats and cocoa, dominant flavour of intense dark bitter chocolate with some charred wood and dirt, long bitter chocolate aftertaste. A nice though not too complex seeping stout.

Decent malt smoothness, its just rather thin, not all that interesting for an oatmeal stout.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2011
From the beer of the month club. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured thick, black and oily with a medium sized exceptionally dark head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was toasty and roasty with hints of coffee, vanilla and cocoa. The flavor was bitter and roasty with moderate notes of vanilla and cocoa and a faint hint of anise. The finish was medium length, dryish and had a bit of cocoa. Fairly full bodied and nicely creamy. Well done.

zvikar (3371) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - FEB 3, 2011
Beer of the month club, pours black opaque with an enormous chocolate head, aroma of chocolate, oatmeal, wood, vanilla, nuts and caramel, flavor of coffee, charcoal, cherries, light bitterness, some nuts and notes of oatmeal, medium body, nice stout.

DSG (5676) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 1, 2011
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Opens with a gusher, and keep gushing even after I pour some beer into a glass. Black-colored with a huge (and I mean HUGE) slowly-diminishing light brown head. Roasty aroma with some coffee, oatmeal, chocolate hints and some fruitiness. Sweet roasty flavor with some coffee and light fruitiness. Finishes dry and a bit ashy. Medium-bodied and a bit over-carbonated. Not too much depth here, but a nice solid Stout.

Dogbrick (7687) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2010
This beer pours black with a thin tan head that dissipates to an outer ring quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Medium body with a cocoa character and some malt and mild roast notes. The finish is chocolatey with a roasted malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Fratto (2616) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle from Cavie. Dark pour with a small brown head. Aroma is lots of oatmeal, coffee, and roasted malts. Taste is a little bitter, more coffee, a little chocolate, thick and creamy.

iabeerguy (392) - Iowa, USA - NOV 22, 2010
I consider myself a big stout guy and was looking forward to trying this beer since it is brewed in my home state, but I was pretty disappointed with the effort on this stout. Lacking in flavor compared to many other stouts I’ve had.

crazyvin (1912) - New York, USA - NOV 10, 2010
A dark brown opaque body with a medium-brown head that had very little retention and no lace. Aroma had a strong coffee note to it, mild leather and some cocoa. Flavor seemed to be a little heavy on the roasted coffee note which wasn’t bad, but made the beer kind of one dimensional. Finish was dry.

brenn79 (1491) - Idaho, USA - NOV 9, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2010 12 oz. bottle- Pours black with a tan head, aroma is oats and chocolate, it smells like cocoa puffs. The flavor is roasted chocolate malt, oats, and milk. The palate is very creamy with a semi dry finish, medium to low carbonation. Overall could use a bit more carbonation, but is a decent example of the style.
