COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Jet black in color and full·bodied with a rich, creamy, long-lasting head. Robust, with luscious chocolate and coffee flavors, it is balanced with just the right amount of UK Golding hops. Brewed with massive quantities of oats, our Oatmeal Stout is smooth in the extreme. It pairs well with a wide range of hearty, full-flavored foods and delicious desserts. Our Oatmeal Stout is 6.0% alcohol by volume and 100% marvelous!”

Narnad (1472) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Pours a deep black color with a great deep tan head that is very dense and creamy looking. Aroma has a mild raisin, chocolate start and moves into a low toffee and coffee presence with a light nuttiness at the end. Early flavor has an almost smoky flavor from the coffee and bunt malt note. After this subsides a very pleasant light dark fruit and hefty sweet chocolate flavors take over. The stout finishes with a slight coffee bitterness. There is a modest density and a little extra in the mouth feel from the oats and a light dry sweetness to finish it off. Oatmeal stouts are one of my favorites and are a consistently one of the styles I am always brewing at home. This oatmeal stout has a great transitioning flavor profile. All flavors flow very nicely and overlap just enough to compliment the flavors from before. A very enjoyable brew and I think one of the better oatmeal stouts out there on the market.

AwYeh (102) - Canton, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Pours your average stout black; no light passing through with a finger of tan head. Smells like chocolate, coffee, and oatmeal after an odd first sniff of house cleaner. Tastes much like smell, with chocolate and roasted malts standing out. Medium+ body, soft carbonation. Goes down easy for a stout but no big desire to have a second.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours quite black with a reddish-beige head. The aroma is roasty with some distinct berry-like oat notes and a little bit of raisin and prune. The flavor is somewhat sweet with berries and raisins and oats, kind of reminds me of trail mix. But then there is a nice, deep roastiness and just a hint of ashy sourness. Pretty good stuff.

12 oz. bottle via trade with michael-pollack- thanks, Pollack! Pours a dark, opaque brown color with a tiny tan head that leaves only a ring in the glass. Aroma of oatmeal, chocolate and roasted malts, mild coffee, earth, and molasses-like syrup. Flavor of oats, sweet chocolate malts, oats, mild coffee, cola syrup, molasses, and overripe plums. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, sweet, roasty mouthfeel. Not bad.
