COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark ale is a hearty and satisfying reward for those of us who embrace the frozen tundra. Uncut oatmeal fresh from Chilton, Wisconsin gives this Stout a "sink into it" smoothness that slides you into its depth. Handcrafted English Chocolate malt and Wisconsin Victory malt combine to balance this robust ale. Expect this ale to pour a luxurious rich head over a rich black ruby body. The powerful malt bouquet will greet you as you tip this silky smoothness from your glass. Our Oatmeal Stout is handcrafted in the time-honored traditions. Serve just above room temperature and relax -- road construction season will soon return.

6/17/12. 12oz bottle shared by a dude in the Brandy Zhukov line. Mellow roasty aroma with touches of chocolate. Nice mellow chocolate and hints of coffee in the flavor. Not bad.

Shared by a friend. Almost a black pour with a small white head. Roasty, coffee, chocolate, and some caramel. A very good stout.

Near black with a small white head. The aroma is a bit minty, with light roast and chocolate. The flavor brings more chocolate, with a nice dry finish. Very nice stout.

Poured from a refrigerated bottle into a snifter thanks to birthday adneilsen and Weihenheizen. Thanks guys. Appearance is a dense black with a moderate head of a greyish brown. Aroma is a sweet, yet roasty coffee with a touch of caramel and cream. Taste is just slightly sweet with a fizzy bitterness. Light on the palate and ever so refreshing. Reminds me a lot of a chocolate milkshake.

pours from bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark brown color with a small head. Well balanced aromas of coffee, roasted malts, with a slight bit of caramel and toffee. Lacking a some depth though. Medium/full bodied with a smooth feel, but lacking a bit in the middle. Very good flavors of caramel, roasted coffee, and malts. A quality stout. I didnít get that many oatmeal flavors, but this was very good nonetheless.

Bottle, from my MTH glass. Pours clear tawny/brown - thin pale tan head; spotty to poor lacing. Nose is cocoa, vanilla, toast, mocha, very open and approachable; further nosing is rewarded with Tootsie roll and root beer notes as well. Flavours of soapy spice, maple sugar, light roast; a bit thin, Iíd call this closer to a Porter than a Stout. A touch of vanilla on the finish as well. Nice.

hombrepalo (1839) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Shared bottle at DLD. Opaque chalky black, massive steady beige head. Creamy, mossy stout. Big chocolate, almost vanilla tones. rich chocolate milk finish. Watery mouthfeel, roasty chocolate tones. Smooth and very drinkable, well executed. Solid draught stout.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2012
Originally reviewed: 3/1/12. Poured into my Highland pint glass. Pours a dark cola-color with a thick tan head on top. A good two-fingers worth for sure. A very pleasing bouquet with fresh cookies, dark breads, sweet warm malts. Really nice nose. Excellent body here too as the oats impart a creamy smooth texture, while the moderate carbonation sharpens the edges. Chocolate malt, brown sugar-sweetened oatmeal, little bit of caramel sweetness. Very well-done beer here. After my last NG experience, I needed a good reminder was to why this is one of my top-5 breweries. This beer reminded me.

A: The pour yields about one and a half finger size head that is mocha colored. This beer is dark brown with some light brown to mahogany color evident at the edges. There are some bubbles visible along the sides of the glass that rise to form a ring around the edges of the glass. I also note some visible sediment floating in my glass, interesting. Lacing is light. S: Chocolate malt and roasted nuttiness at first with some burnt coffee. I also get some brown sugar sweetness. As I continue to let this one warm up before I start sipping I seem to get more and more coffee on the nose. T: I get the roasted character of this beer at first followed by some semi-sweet dark chocolate. I also get some unique earthiness notes? Hard for me to describe. M: I expected this to be more creamy or smooth being an oatmeal stout but itís acceptable. Maybe the carbonation takes away from the smoothness? As i find this to be a little sharp. A little too thin for a stout for my liking. O: This oatmeal stout did not wow me mostly because of the feel. I prefer this style to be smoother and more satisfying on the mouth.
