COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big oatmeal stout is midnight black in color--with a big roasty, mocha-like aroma. It has a silky body from the use of rolled oats, and a round and lasting finish. Perfect as an after dinner treat.

Sierra Nevada 2012 Oatmeal Stout is a black ale with a chocolate brown overtone. The thin, shiny, brown head becomes a film. The dark, roasted aroma has a touch of toffee to it. It is soft, smooth and full bodied. It leaves the mouth a little chalky. The full, dark roasted flavor is like dark chocolate. The bitterness leans toward juniper and lemon peel. It has lots of taste that’s well balanced. This stuff is just great. I used some in my black bean chili.

stravale (1898) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle from Tomlinsons, Inverness [13013]
Jet black, dark tan frothy head that dissipates to a thin head, some lacing
Aroma of deep dark malts, chocolate, touch of coffee, not a massive aroma
Taste of rich dark malts, deep dark soft chocolate, touch of coffee, alcohol is a bit noticeable but it’s dangerously easy to drink, some molten chocolate cake, very well balanced
Palate - Soft to medium carb, got a fork in the to get rid of a bit of the fizz, now a rich almost full body, very smooth malts. Finish as main flavour, nice waxy smoothness from the oats, dark chocolate cake
Overall - A really well made smooth chocolately impy stout. It’s not a complex impy but it’s so drinkable. They are spot on describing it as a ’pudding’ beer.

dlbeer (662) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle. Black pour with tan head. Smells of dark chocolate and sweetness from the oatmeal. Almost smells like a milk stout. Tastes sweet at first and then a dark chocolate bitterness. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
