3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 pour from room temperature bottle into Spiegelau stout glass. Dark brown to black, opaque, huge tan head. Nose is caramel sweetness, coffee, and oats. Mouthfeel is creamy and moderately carbonated. Taste is interesting. Sweet and very dry. Bitter malts, dark coffee, and raisin. A good stout if you?re looking for roasty and assertive.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Average. Aroma is roasted malt with some dark fruit notes. Taste is lots of roasted barley flavor with some faint caramel and raisin notes. Finish is a slightly smooth with very little body--would have like more body...

4.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Draft in shaker glass. This beer is nearly black in color with a creamy persistant head and a solid lacing that obscures the outside of the glass. It has a faint unpleasant metallic aroma. You can taste oatmeal (suprising, eh?) and a bit of coffee and roasted barley. Itís very good and extremely drinkable. This is an excellent stout despite its unpleasant aroma.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark, dark brown and with chestnut highlights at the edges when held to the light. Touch of ruby in there too. Nose is weak overall. Bitter coffee, burnt sugar, light char, glimpse of dark fruit, roasted malt, faint chocolate and oats. Maybe some salted peanut. taste is slightly metallic up front. Body is thin and watery. My first thought is; "this is more like a porter than a stout." Has no depth or creaminess. Travels the palate way too quickly. Follows the nose with weak flavor of coffee, chocolate and the fruit has disappeared. Malt is weak and although this has balance it is lacking in intensity and depth. Thereís a hop bitter mid palate that settles in back and without it there would be hardly any aftertaste except for the raw oat taste and a salted peanut flavor.
I think this has potential but it just isnít finished yet. It needs some tweaking.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
I donít smell or taste any oatmeal in this anywhere. The aroma is kinda weak and the flavor is sort of nonexistent. Its smooth so it has that going for it.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2005 Another tasty well balanced brew from this very reliable brewer. Sweet slightly smoky nose, malty and hearty with a smooth finish. Bottled version. Full-bodied and yet very drinkable. Good stuff!

On tap at Flying Saucer. pours a dark black with a small white head. Aroma is of a oatmeal, malts. Taste is a smooth, milky oat taste. A very good oat stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Black and ruby color with a frothy short head. Aroma of pumpernickel, coffee and roasted oats. Dark chocolate, coffee, cascade hops. Full body and slick mouthfeel. Iíve had better oat stouts but this is pretty solid
