This is a great fall and winter brew. Lots of roasted and caramel malts along with the addition of oats creates a heavy-duty, black beer. Teeming with malty, roasty goodness, Oatmeal Stout also presents a silky-smooth creaminess provided by the addition of real oats to the brewing process. Just the beer for those cold, winter nights!

Courtesy of Skyview. Black color with a medium head. Aroma of chocolate and oats. Dry chocolate flavor with a copious amount of piney hops. Both a chalky taste/feel and a bit oily. This is far more dry and bitter than I prefer my oatmeal stouts, but still solid.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Sampled on draught at the brewery’s taproom in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. Pours an opaque dark brown (nearly onyx black) with a creamy tan head that resembled a nitro poured stout. Aroma of toasted dark malt, oatmeal, a hint of chocolate fudge, and floral hops. The oatmeal really shines when you allow the beverage warm up. Taste is full bodied that is almost borderline imperial stout character without the high alcohol, with flavors of toasted dark malt, oatmeal and some mild floral hops. Finish is quite smooth, silky with a well-balanced aftertaste of chocolate and toasted dark malts with oatmeal. By far one of the best oatmeal stouts I have tried in years. After trying this straight from the bright tank, the brewery needs to offer this outstanding beer as a cask drawn stout.
