UPDATED: MAR 5, 2003 This beer rocks! It pours as a thick, oily black liquid. Only when held up to a high-powered halogen lamp is one enabled to behold the beautiful, deep crimson hue. The medium-sized, creamy, khaki-colored head is mostly, but not fully, diminishing with decent lacing. The aroma is of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee swirled with rich, Belgian milk chocolate. Small acrid, cherry and lightly floral notes. The flavor is of creamy, dark roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, soy sauce and mild coffee up front. Well-hopped with moderate bitterness and tartness on the backside. Full-bodied with a fizzy and moderately creamy mouthfeel. Lengthy, sour, lightly bitter and mostly dry finish with more Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee at the very wee end. It's what a stout should be. Nothing really sweet about the beer. My guess is that ANY OATMEAL Stout is classified as a sweet stout. Good stuff. Have one!

Tap @ Schlafly St. Louis. Pours a deep brown appearance with a brown head. Roasty, rich chocolate, a bit oaty aroma. Burnt malty, lightly smoky, chocolate, oaty, anise flavor. Ok.

DocLock (9866) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2005
Thanks to beer handy for this. I had this after a Boulevard Dry Stout and a few oyster crackers, and the Boulevard Stout is better than this by 0.3-0.5. This one pours black with ruby edges and a big off-white head. Aroma of dark malt, chocoff, cabernet. Tastes roasty malty, with chocoff and some fruitiness in the finish. Somewhat light in palate and not a pinnacle of complexity, but very good.

12oz bottle. Almost total black color, nice brown head fading to minimal, some lace. Carbonation is a little pronounced, but crisp enough. Great roasty coffee aftertaste. Great oaty aroma, nice hearty big body. Good sweet taste. A satisfying, easy to drink, oatmeal stout.

phaleslu (9307) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Draft at the Schlafly Tap Room. Pours a super dark brown, cloudy but not quite opaque and highlighted with some clear brown-amber. Two-finger thick beige head. Aroma of roasted caramel malts, toasted grains, oats, coffee, and some light, earthy hops. Flavor of roasted caramel malts, oats, chocolate, coffee, toast, cream, and brown sugar. Medium-bodied, with soft carbonation and a dry, gritty mouthfeel. Nice oatmeal stout.

MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
My Bottom Line :
Roasted malts turn to dark chocolate in this lean, quaffable Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the brown-hued blackness.
-The carbonation is a tad too much for my tastes in the style.
-The chocolate-y finish is long and highly pleasant.
-Leafy hops tag along and eventually create balance.

Bottle.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Pours nice black with tan head, aroma has notes of chocolate, roast, oats, and a touch of coffee. Taste is oat, roast, and a touch of chocolate/coffee mix, finishing slightly bitter. A bit one-dimensional, but a quality, solid beer.
