“brewed for the harvest” This beer begins in spring when oat seeds are sown as soon as the soil can be worked. Meanwhile, select types of barley are planted with hopes that Mother Nature will be kind. Our brewers wait patiently until the legumes are mature and ready for the scythe. Upon delivery to the brewery, these ingredients are mixed together in the mash tun where they steep, creating a rich molasses-like liquid. Spicy hops are boiled with the thick brew, giving balance and complexity. Brewers yeast feasts upon the rich sugars, concluding its transformation into oatmeal stout. Pour Oat into a snifter, allow its thick tan head to slowly rise, releasing unbridled aromas. The color of Oat is as dark as a moonless night. The first sip reveals Oat’s thick and nourishing taste. Like a haversack to a horse, a bottle of this stout is a meal in itself. Enjoy responsibly. 11.0% abv • 238º L

Pours thick, deep opaque black from the bomber with a thin tan head. Aroma is licorice, roasted malt, sugar, coffee but also hints of citrus and hops. Flavor is heavy on the sugar and licorice, smooth, plenty of chocolate flavor. Finish is thick and really shows off the high alcohol without being astringent. One complaint would be the high alcohol makes it a very heavy beer to drink, but all in all, a good beer experience.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2009 This poured black out of a bomber. Tan head. This is a very thick beer. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and a little malt, has bitter finish and alcohalis present in taste. I felt the drinkability was poor due to thickness and high alcohal. Had to split bomber with my brother. A very good beer and I probably rated it higher than I actually liked it.

Maybe it was just my nose acting up, but I gathered little to no aroma. Pours thick and dark with a small tan head. Goes down the esophagus as thickly as it pours with a very rich malty and chocolate flavor. The finish is sweet with its abundant alcohol content. Best oatmeal stout I’ve tried.

22 oz. bottle via trade with jasonmech77 - First beer on Thanksgiving! Pours a dark brown color with a 3/4 finger thick tan head. Very light spotty lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and light esters. Flavor is chocolate, toasted malt and a touch of coffee. Smooth and very easy to drink. A thick, full bodied beer. Very nice. Thanks Jason.

This Imperial Stout pours a deep black color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized beige head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee so roasted malts. A medium bodied Imperial Stout. The malts are chocolate and coffee, a touch burnt. The hops are a touch earthy. Soft mouthfeel. Complex flavors of roasted malt, chocolate and vanilla. Smooth tasting. A touch of alcohol hotness. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bomber ordered from Archer Liquors
Pours dark black with a small tan head that doesn’t last even with a violent pour. Smell is of marshmallows, oat, chocolate and a lot of alcohol coming through in the way of acetone, almost. Taste is creamy, smooth, and oily with a great carbonation level. More oatiness, chocolate, roast malt and marshmallowy goodness, but again the alcohol is huge, and is the only thing that keeps this from being awesome in my mind. If they scaled it back to maybe 8-9% or hid it better I’d love this stuff, but as hot as it is, It was just an enjoyable one time beer for me.

Sample at Julio’s Liquors in MA. Pour’s a deep, dark brown with a thick tan head. Heavy aromas of oats, roasted malts, caramel and a hint of brown sugar. Flavor is of dark chocolate, coffee beans, rolled oats, and a slight hint of butter. Mouthfeel is thick and chewy. One of the better Imp. stout’s I’ve had in a while.

From a bottle this oatmeal stout had average head, muddy black body. It released a chocolate/coffee combo overwelms a oatmeal taste. The coffee flavor cuts the alcohol which makes it surprisingly easy to drink.

Thanks to Zathrus13 for this one. Black on the pour with a small lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol, dark fruits and some chocolate. Taste is complex with a very full mouthfeel, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, dried fruit, sweet oats. Dry alcoholic finish, very solid once again.
