2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is chocolate but not picking much else up. Appearance is dark brown almost black with a small light tan head. Taste reminds me of a Guiness but much sweeter and more flavorful. Palate is a bit thin but ok. Overall pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a black color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of rich roasted malt notes with a side of black chocolates. Taste is also dominated by some roasted malt with a side of black chocolate. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Not the most complex beer but well enjoyable with good balance between the flavours and good drinkability.

Oatmeal stouts have a way of triggering the pleasure receptors in my brain. I love the balance and sleek feel that they have to offer - well, the good ones, anyway. Schlafly’s oatmeal stout provides all of that. It has a brownish-black body that is surprisingly light, but the blanket of small, tight bubbles creates a lovely head. It’s perfectly smooth and the balance between the chocolate and roasted coffee spice is excellent. Aroma is a little light, but offers an enticing scent of fresh coffee and spicy cocoa. The finish is creamy but also refreshing. These St. Louis brewers clearly have a handle on the style. This beer gives the legendary English oatmeal stouts a run for their money.
