COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In recognition of Missouri’s official mascot and his unique "boot," we’ve created a medium-bodied, 5.9% ABV Oatmeal stout, with flavor notes of caramel & chocolate and a double-heeled "kick" of roasted coffee & oatmeal.

Solid Sweet Stout for the general masses, palate should not be confused with that of traditional Stouts. Everything as advertised.

Pours nice brown, foamy, head. Smells of oats, chocalate, and yeast. Tastes smooth, and, umm, oaty. If you are looking for a dry stout, like Guiness, keep looking. This isn’t it. If you like a smooth, oaty, this is a good beer. Funny, but, I’d bet my last dollar ( or Aventinus ), that if these rater did not know it was an AB product, the ratings would be much higher.

This is a very good draft for it’s type. I enjoyed more than turbo dog which is near identical. Surprisingly goes down good with wings. I agree that A-B label kills it’s ratings but it’s one of their better creations.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2008 Had this beer at the Howard Johnsons in the bar thought this was a very good draft. Smelled of choclate not bitter after taste. A very good beer from the tap.

Draught from The Pub poured into shaker - Pours deep burgundy red with a 1/2 finger tan head; Chocolate, sweet malts, caramel, maybe a little coffee to the nose; Coffee, light roast and some hops on the initial taste; Oats, mild roast on a dry aftertaste; Watery-medium body; Kinda lively carbonation; Good to see AB branching out a bit. It’s about as respectable as some of the craft brewers out there can do.

Tap. Pours a dark brown color with a decent sized head. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate. Flavor is a bit on the weak side. A decent beer for missouri!

Sessionable and inoffensive stout that won’t blow anyone’s mind. The waiter at the restaurant told me this was a new dark lager from a microbrewery in St. Louis. Those people are going to hear a few words from me, if I ever go back there. Interestingly, it does taste like a reasonable dark lager. The fact that it’s actually a stout is funny. I’ll do my best to forget the style and the megabrewery and rate it based on my impressions at the time. It was served too cold, which I mention because the kind of places that serve this to you are likely to do the same. Looks fairly nice, though... pours black with a frothy and reasonably lasting tan head. Aroma, even when warm, was a faint, roasty malt. Flavor brings a very light bitterness with roasted coffee notes. Not much aftertaste of which to speak. Thin MF with average carbonation. Goes down extremely easy. A dark, inoffensive quencher from A-B. Not bad, just boring.

Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and light chocolate. Flavor is sweet and fairly smooth. Not bad for AB.

Draft at the Bier Stube in Moline, IL. Opaque, dark brown with orange highlights. Head was thick, tan, and left a curtain of lace. So far so good. Not much in the way of aroma other than minimal chocolate. Things have started to fall apart. Dry on the tongue with a dominant cardboard-like flavor accented by a hint of roasty malt. Medium bodied, but not a very good oatmeal stout. Too dry, too cardboardy.
