Drank a few at the brewery. Delicious stout! High drinkability for such a full-bodied brew. Very smooth, with lots of chocolate and coffee. Exceptionally well balanced.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 12 oz. long neck brown bottle with a bottled on date, Oct/04/05. Made a good appearance, poured a opaque dark chocolate with a nice sized foamy pale tannish white head that settled into a thin, clingy, bubbly lacing, moderate carbonation. Had a faint roasted barley malt nose with an oatmeal sweetness. A smooth medium bodied mouth feel, average drinkability. Lightly roasted malt flavor, a little chocolate maltiness, a soft, rolling hop bite, a gentle sweetness and a sweet, watery finish.
I love the Kaldiís Coffee Stout, and while this Oatmeal Stout has decent drinkability, it is average tasting at best, not one of Schlaflyís better efforts.

Nice roasted malt aroma with soem coffee. Fairly light pour of deep mahogany and a decent size white head. Light in body. Quaffable roastiness in flavor, some bitterness, but very smooth, silky, emminently drinkable. Not great, but very good. Thanks James.

The reddish-brown body is very pale for a stout. The head is small and fades quickly. The aroma is some roast and circus peanuts. The flavor is light, a bit of malted chocolate balls and a slightly metallic bitterness in the back. Easy drinking but not as hefty as Iíd like.

A nice dark stout with some coffee/chocolate notes and underlying hoppy presence. Not bad bottled, but even better on tap. Good rich taste with roasted malt & coffee coming through strongest at the start. Finishes a bit bitter, but not really bad.

Bottled 10/26/05: Nice coffee and mocha aroma; malty, mocha begiining, roasty, slightly hoppy bitter finish; lightly acidic with a slick mouthfeel. One of the best oatmeal stouts yet.

Bottled Nov. 9, 2005. Dark dark brown with a tan disappearing head. Aroma of caramel and grain. Nice body. Sweet, coffee, roasty, grassy. Grassy, roasty finish. I donít really see why itís called an oatmeal stout.

Bottle. Sweet caramel nose. Medium dark color with thin head. I thought this one had a nice sweetness, but the watery mouthfeel washed the flavor away too quickly.
