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.

pours a rich, dark color with no head. Smell of roasted coffee. Tastes like a malty bitter chocolate with a burnt coffee after taste. Decent beer

It poured limp into a Guinnes tulip; minimal head with decent lacing. The smell is acrid malts with a little oatmeal sweetness. It feels like there is a little chocolate dying to be smelled, but the acrid smell beats it back into sumission. The taste is pleasant. Lightly malted with a hinting of hops, but good balance. I expected more outmeal to come through. not there. All in all, not a bad brew, but I would rather have Gray’s.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Pours a nearly opaque with a lightly-lacing dark tan head. Aroma of sweet roasted and dark crystal malts with some mocha and a nice hoppy balance. Body starts with a sweet smooth caramel coffee flavor revealing some dark chocolate and mild bitterness toward a bittersweet dry finish. This almost tastes more like a dry stout in the finish, but has some nice sweetness early on. A pretty good stout.

Pours a the darkest brown color, very nice off white foamy head, retention is good. Light cocoa. grassy hops, caramel. Flavor is sweet, chocolate, cocoa powder. Sweet and rich, well balanced. Nice stout, nice mouthfeel.

barleyPops (1141) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2006
roasty, toasty malts with coffee, chocolate and some hop characteristics thrown in as well. almost pitch black in color with a fast fading tan head. seems like more of a dry stout than a sweet stout to me. very good but not unlike many other stouts I’ve tried.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2006
12oz bottle via trade with DavidP - Thanks David! - Pours black with a nice mocha head that stays pretty well and laces some.Nice aroma of roasted/burnt malt, coffee, and a touch of chocolate. Flavor is boldly roasted malts, coffee, oatmeal, some milk chocolate slips through in the middle but is then overtaken again with the coffee bitters and burnt malts. Smooth and creamy on the palate but definitely some texture there too due to the oatmeal. Creamy mouthfeel with a nice dry finish. Would be a great session stout.. Great stuff

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2006
Bottle: Dark brown, nearly black, moderate light brown head, foamy, so-so lacing.   Heavily burnt malt aroma, almost like campfire, very slight milk sugar, but also quite a bit of pasture.   Moderate semi-sweet bitter roasted malts up front, a bit of milk sugar in the back, but otherwise a bit lack-luster for a Sweet Stout.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly moderate.   Finishes flat, somewhat weak, with a watery semi-sweet roasted malt character.   I really enjoy New Glarus brews, but this one just doesn’t seem up to par.   Thanks to JPDIPSO for sending me a couple bottles of this!

Bottle (12oz). Shared with Sammy and DrJay, my bottle via trade with Ughsmash. Poured nearly black - ruby hints at the edges - with a thick, large, long-lasting tan head. Full-on aroma of burnt dark malt, very dry, with indeterminate bitter roastiness. Flavour is a little milder, nutty roastiness, light tart fruit, some wheaty softness to it - decent. Soft, dry, lightly acidic mouthfeel - overall a decent dry stout, couldn’t call it coffee-ish or chocolate-y, just "roast"

black with thin head, some lace down the glass. Lighter carbonation. Dry stout with some creaminess. Good roasty aroma no coffee, I like. Not too bitter, well malted.Very quaffable.Medium plus mouthfeel. All these things, smooth and unoffensive. Fresh. Thanks HogTownHarry
