COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Oatmeal Stout is a traditional English style stout, created before Arthur Guinness established the Dry Irish Stout style. Oatmeal Stout gets its dark profile from chocolate malt which has not been roasted as long or as strongly as the barley used in Dry Stouts. The chocolate malt gives notes of coffee or chocolate, and the oatmeal softened the background even further for smooth, easy drinking ale.

From my dear brother: Pours black with a creamy head. Some salty pretzel smell, dark chocolate malt, and a hint of coffee. Taste is lightly bitter. It is very dry, Leaves some lingering dryness and dark chocolate. Not bad.

Dark brown, almost black pour with small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, slight coffee, chocolate and hint of sweetness. Taste of roasted malts, slight coffee and chocolate, lactose. Medium carbonation, full bodied and a nice velvety mouthfeel, almost creamy. Excellent stout, definately one of their best offerings.

At the Rev and loving it. Pours an almost opaque black with a small brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee and notes of cocoa and dark fruits. Flavour is made up of bitter and dry roasted malts, espresso, cocoa, and a nice velvety mouthful. Tasty brew.

Pours a clear black with a frothy brown head that lasts a while. Aroma of chocolate, mocha coffee, roasted malts and faint dark fruits. Taste is chocolate, coffee, cream and the body is nice and slick from the oatmeal. Excellent oatmeal stout.

Everything you look for in an oatmeal stout. Coffee and chocolate with some dark fruit. Not too sweet. And smoooooooooth.

On tap at Charcut, Calgary. Decent deep brown black colour, something of a head. Wasn’t labelled as oatmeal stout and I’d never have guessed, more of a pleasant but unremarkable dry stout with roasty malt and a dry finish. Quite quaffable, but mouthfeel and smoothness of oatmeal stout not there.

Draft at Calgary brewfest. Dark maroon color, tan head. Nice aroma of rich cocoa. Taste is equally rich coffee grounds. Very nice.

Tap @ Calgary Beer Fest. Pours clear black with a medium, frothy light tan head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and roast malt, leathery, prunes, and licorice notes. Flavor is malt dominant, light hops and bitterness, oats, dark fruits and a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Guess i’ve never rated this. Had it on draft last night at the owl. Great looking black beer with a nice creamy tan head. Aroma coffee, molasses and cocoa. Tastes dark chocolate and coffee. Solid oatmeal stout. I do prefer it on tap to the bottle.
