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.

not a bad beer but not the best oatmeal stout. STrong coffee/choc flavor that I liked and definate oatmeal- it was missing something for me but not sure what... very drinkable and I will enjoy again.

I had this out of the tap and bottle. Pours dark brown with a mimimal head. It is smooth and the taste is subtle, but not bitter. I can't wait to try it again a few times just to be sure.

Bottled Nov. 9, 2005. Dark dark brown with a tan disappearing head. Aroma of caramel and grain. Nice body. Sweet, coffee, roasty, grassy. Grassy, roasty finish. I don’t really see why it’s called an oatmeal stout.

The oatmeal sweetness is quickly accompanied by caramel and a touch of hops. Of the brewer’s products that I tasted, this was my favorite pending the rest...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2006 Bottle from Hy-Vee Liquors (Bottled on 08-09-2006, my mother’s birthday!) poured into english pint - Pours very dark burgundy with a 1 finger brown head; chocolate, roasted malt, caramel to the nose; Roasted malt, perhaps some hops? on a relatively bland initial taste; Roasted malt backtaste; Medium to watery palate; Light carbonation; Very easy to go down, but too much roast to be a sweet stout in my opinion. Not near enough chocolate or caramel and no oatmeal. Aroma and taste were a bit of a let down. It’s average.

Pours Obsidian with amber highlights and a light tan head. The foam was funky smelling
(Horsy) but as it faded the aroma of Coffee and dark malts are evident. I thought the taste
was typical Roasted barley ,bitter dark grains, Hops in the middle none in the finish. What I found most disappointing was the lack of “oatmeal” character… you know the oiliness or creamy mouthfeel that can be achieved with this adjunct.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not too impressed. Smells like butt - seriously, I don't know what was wrong with it. Appearance is cark with a slight head. Flavor is very light - some chocolate but mostly a slightly-nasty aftertaste that left my mouth begging to make it stop. Also, it seemed pretty thin for a stout, even a sweet one. Don't think I'll try this one again.

12 oz bottle. Dark brown in color. Not overally strong but the oats really stand out making it slightly bitter. Medium creamy body that is easy to drink.
