2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2013 1st rating: 2/25/2013: Medium body. Bitterness from hops. Black in color. Caramel, roasted malt notes present. I am not a fan of this, but it is a good beer for those who are alright with the hoppier accents in an oatmeal stout.
2nd rating: 8/30/2013:
Could have a thicker body and would be more enjoyable/smoother if there was less of a bitter bite to the end. Jet black color. Nice taste of coffee and a bit of chocolate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
3/7/04. Poured out of 12 oz. bottle, obtained in a trade with igneous1 on RateBeer. Pours a dark brown-black with ruby outline, good-sized, frothy and rocky dark tan head that fades to a rocky tuft. Lacing is pretty good, a bit lumpy and blotchy but quite nice. Aromas of light coffee, cream, roasted malt, and a wood-like trace of dirty dishwater. First taste reveals medium-thin body, very smooth with a slightly woody tang and dark roasted maltiness. Pretty decent and drinkable, but it's lacking in complexity and depth, in my opinion. Finish goes smooth and pretty elegant, lingering with a smokiness to the malt and a subtly dirty hopped bitterness and burnt black pepper taste. More going on in the back end than when you first take a drink of this stuff. Quite nice to linger on after a swallow. A solid, drinkable oatmeal stout, but not close to my favorite.

Opaque black color with a tan head that lasts about 10 seconds. Slightly fruity aroma. Fairly strong roasted malt aroma. Slightly bready. A touch of smoke in the nose. Great flavor of malt, caramel, roast, smoke. Very creamy, silky mouthfeel. Great flavor in this nice oatmeal stout. Good stuff.

Bottle in Minnesota, though bought at the brewery in St. Louis. A bit lighter than I would prefer, this brew has a robust roast and slight grapish flavor. Though not a strong beer, it has a redeeming complexity and a smooth ride down the gullet (no gizzard necessary).

I was so looking forward to my pals bringing this down from St.Louis and yet so disappointed when it arrived. It is a stout so automatically gets good ratings but a disappointing one nonetheless.

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.

Weird fruitiness not usually associated with the breed. Good brown sugar essences almost make up for it. Might like to try it on draft. In the bottle itís merely adequate.
