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!”

jcr (2187) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Bottle. Black body with a frothy tan head. Sweet aroma of bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, cocoa. The flavor is moderately sweet and and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture and lively carbonation. Sweet chocolate tastes give way to bitter roast with a hint of grapefruit. Light smokiness and chewy caramel. Rich, slick mouthfeel. The sweetness was too much by the end of the bottle.

this is a quite a unique beer, the smokiness is quite mellow but does offer a bit of character. not too rich in the malt aspect but falls short in the hop. the oatmeal taste is quite thorough. good beer.

jb (2157) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 22, 2011
A good sweet stout. Very nice nose of dark chocolate + roasted notes. Creamy at times, gritty at times, oily, very nice mouthfeel. A bit of coffee in the palate, but mostly dark chocolate syrup and grain. Not too complex but darn good. Appearance is typical, very dark, reddish highlights, thick dark head that dissipates quickly.
