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.

5000 (6179) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Bottle pours dark chocolate with ruby accents, small off-white frothish head that quickly dissipates, but with decent lacing.   Aroma is very light, mostly roasted malts.   Flavor is equally light, just hints of roasted malts and not much else.   Body & mouthfeel were both thin.   A very non offensive easy to drink Sweet Stout, but I need something with more character.   Thanks goes out to MarkR for the trade.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Sep 06 bottling. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain/nuts, coffee, chocolate), trace hops (resin), with notes of minerals and vanilla, hint of smoke. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. A tasty little stout. Not an eye-opener, and needs a better mouthfeel, but solid.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2008
Bottle (12oz). Via trade with Acknud. Clear ruby pour - clear, but essentially opaque - fairly large fizzy beige head. Sweet heavy roast aroma, oats and dusty dry floral hops (6+). Taste is pretty nice - a tad light, but solid coffee dry cocoa roast, well-balanced by the dry floral hops. Slick, somewhat light mouthfeel, nice and lively, with a welcome light astringent bitter linger, and happily NO syrupiness at all (yay! doesn’t remind be of undiluted fountain cola). Light, but well done.

arminjewell (5992) - Fort Collins, Colorado, 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.

I’ve had this from the bottle once and on tap a bunch of times. Not a bad beer.

BBB63 (5940) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2003
On Tap - Medium brown with small tan head, okay lacing, medium-bodied. Sweet caramel aroma is very present, hint of coffee. Smooth and buttery mouthfeel, good balance. Lacks the knockout punch on the palate (a little hop), but overall, a good Oatmeal Stout.

DrSilverworm (5898) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2011
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.
