A dark brown to black color with a beige head. The aroma contains mostly chocolate and coffee. The flavor is more bitter than sweet with a lot of coffee showing up. Some oats and chocolate in there also. The finish is also slightly bitter. Overall a nice session stout.

Bottle. Pours black thin tan lacing. Fairly mild aroma for the style, roasted, coffee, oatmeal. Medium sweet taste. Medium-full body, texture on the creamy side, mild bitter roasty finish. Overall good stout.

Ok, Iím new to the oatmeal stout, and this one popped my proverbial cherry. Pours dark brown wit a ran head. Creamy mouth feel. Tastes of coffee, roasted malt, and a bit of chocolate. Not a bad start for me, I think. Iíve not had good luck with Schlafly but Iíll try more now.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2014 12 oz bottle , bottled on 15 April, 2013, and served in a snifter at about 55F.
This Oatmeal Stout pours dark mahogany but is clear and the bottle lacks sediment. The small tan head is short-lived and leaves scant lacing.
The oatmeal is evident in the aroma, flavor and soft feel. Hints of dried fruits and faint coffee add to the flavor. Low hops and carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Fiddlers. Pours black with minimal head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Can taste the "oatmeal" but has a metallic taste on the finish. I don't know if that is intended or not but not well received. Overall I think Schlafly makes solid beers but this is average. I will give another try at a later date to see if the metallic taste is still there.
