The revival of a unique English stout, This brew combines five malts with 10% real oatmeal and hops from the Northwest. A full-bodied roasty ale that goes down smooth and silky.

hotstuff (4353) - Indiana, USA - APR 6, 2004
On tap at LBC. This beer formed a very small sized tan head that contained fine-medium sized bubbles that fully diminished. This beer was opaque with a black hue. The aroma was sweet, caramel and some coffee notes. The flavor was that of coffee and smoke. The mouthfeel was smooth and this was a medium bodied beer with good lacing. A good Sweet Stout and worth trying.

Backlogged rating thanks to some kind and generous soul. The smell is malts, coffee, roasty, and cough syrup. The look is clear, brown in color, and a tan head. The taste is malts, coffee, roast, super roasty, and off.

patrick767 (3689) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2009
bottle - Pours near black with no head. That made me wonder if this bottle was a bad one, but fortunately it was fine. The aroma is of dark roast malt with coffee notes. The flavor is of roast malt, oatmeal, and coffee and finishes with some good bitterness from the roast and hops. It’s medium bodied and quite enjoyable overall.

kaser (3444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Black with very creamy off white head. Not much aroma. Creamy texture. Taste is milky and sweet. Slight cocoa. Very enjoyable. Had this poured from draft as part of a sampler at Lafayette Brewing Co.

auerbrau (3180) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 30, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Interesting light toasted oatmeal and grass cookie. Amino and omega acids. Dense. Pours a surprisingly pale ruby-brown, fairly dark, but no oatmeal stout. Thick tan cream up top. Flavor is oily and has that good, toothy oatmeal flavor, but not really the density to hold it up. Roast character melds in well, but doesn’t stand up amongst the light bodied. A bit of yeast. Not the best density, but a very decent flavor profile. Maybe more of an oatmeal porter than an oatmeal stout.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: Reminds me of those no-bake cookies chocolate and oats.
Appearance: Black.
Flavor: Creamy milk chocolate and some fruitiness. Not really that sweet, but not overly bitter either. About the sweetness level of a plain bowl of oatmeal.
Palate: Smooth and mellow.
Overall: Easy to drink. A decent Oatmeal Stout and better than most...

Rating: 6 3 7 4 14 = 3.4

9/25/2007: Black Angus Oatmeal Stout is near black in color, opaque, and has no head. The aroma is a wonderful blend of smoky charred malt and chocolate. The flaovr is creamy and smooth and contains caramelized malt, some fruit in the mid-palate, chocholate, and some char. There is also a hint of meaty smoke. The body is medium and a touch thin on the palate. Overall this is a pretty solid stout.

12 fl. oz. bottle shared by Lance. Rating: 8 3 7 3 15 = 3.6

Draught during my Great Lakes area brew tour. Black pour with some ruby, small white head. The nose is of oats and chocolate. The oats are definitely in the flavor, but not as strong as other stouts of this style. The chocolate character is well rounded and appropriately sweet. A bit of bitterness is noticeable in the form of elusive, piny hops. The finish is dusty but mainly sweet like milk chocolate. The mouthfeel was reasonably silky with a fairly low level of carbonation. Had this for breakfast on a Thursday. What a great way to start the day!
