COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gold Medal Winner in the World Beer Cup 2000, Oscar’s has quickly become our most popular brand. A full-bodied beer with a smooth finish, this is the ultimate oatmeal stout.

ARMed (590) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2013
A very smooth oatmeal stout with a very easy to drink palate and smooth finish. The body needs to be a little more robust and the character a little more emphatic. While it is smooth and drinkable, the chocolate flavor is minimal and unannounced. Overall a nice beer.

On tap in Hudson WI while at a Christmas party. Good stout that has a lot of complexity.

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate, earthy and roast. Taste is sweet with roasty bitters. Medium bodied with a slick and creamy mouth feel.

12 ounce bottle. Pours almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, and smoke. Taste is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and smoke. Smooth and easy to drink.

Great rich head and dark chocolate appearance. Richly sweet on the nose, but a bit too clean on he palate, with a beautiful taste that just doesn't linger quite long enough. Plenty of roasted oats to satisfy, but just not enough depth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with 2 finger cinnamon colored head that lingers a bit. Nice nose of some coffee and roasted malt. This is a pretty easy drinking stout. Some chocolate and earthy flavor, but lacks any strong hops. Very good, but a bit of bite on the finish would make this great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scipio (650) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2013
Pours black with a big and foamy, although short lived, light tan head. Rather potent aroma that has earthy malts, chocolate, lots of licorice, and a bit of coffee. The taste is dominated by chocolate, with undertones of licorice. The aftertaste lingers for awhile and is the same as the taste. Light in body with a thin and creamy texture. Carbonation is more soft. I like most everything that is offered here. But it is very light and there isn’t a whole lot here to really make it settle like a full beer. I really feel like it is missing the necessary punch that I’m looking for in something like this.

Pours nearly black with a puffy, dark head. Aroma is smoky, roast chocolate/coffee... Flavour is milk chocolate, roast. Slightly smoky malt. Creamy, smooth...very nice.

Not bad, though not great. The chocolate doesn’t really come through except for a little sweetness that tickles the tongue at the end of the taste. Malty aroma, not much hops. Tried with Josh N. in 2013.
