COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ďbrewed for the harvestĒ 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 Oatís 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 ē 238ļ L

Bomber ordered from Archer Liquors
Pours dark black with a small tan head that doesnít 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 Iíd love this stuff, but as hot as it is, It was just an enjoyable one time beer for me.

Sample at Julioís Liquors in MA. Pourís 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. stoutís Iíve 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.

I bought this over a month ago to be my 1000th rating because it was the highest rated beer I could find. At that time it was in the top 20, now itís on its way to below a 4.0. Aroma: Chocolate, pine, chalk, and booze. Pour is super thick black. Delayed dark brown head. Wow, the body on this is ridiculously thick. Totally opposite the Storm King I had last night. Rich chocolate and coffee flavors. An off putting chalky bitterness on the finish, and a lingering alcohol presence. Very syrupy sweet. I still have no idea what oatmeal tastes like in a beer. Some soy sauce flavors, too. Burps are full of alcohol. Good, but not #1000 good. Not sure why Southern Tier needs this and Jah-va. I think that might be better than this.

Fading dark tan head over the deepest brown body. Aie! How can people dig this stuff so much? It smells like malt syrup and molasses and dominatingly so. Immensely sugary from start to finish. Chocolate, marshmallows and all those candies you loved when you were young and try to avoid to keep a guiltless conscience nowadays? Well this beer is liquid candy stock and Iím sorry, but it quickly becomes a burden to keep drinking. Pure syrup mouthfeel, oily sensation never kept at bay by the incompetent (or absent) carbonation. Iím impressed on how low-profile the hops are. Did they judge them unnecessary or are they just hidden beneath the black hole? It matters not since the heavy roast of bitter chocolate nature kicks off the sweets with hard burnt flavours and sets the table for a very dry and bordering chalky finish. You really, really must be in the mood to appreciate its syrupy lack of subtlety and as far as Iím concerned, I simply donít get such moods anymore.

yespr (33800) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2007
From bottle, blind tasting at Papsoes - beer no 7. Pours dark brown to black with a diminished light brown head. Breadish and roasted dark malty aroma, has a dried fruit note too. Chocolate flavoured with a distinct liqourice in the finish. Gives a smooth chocolate flavour along the way and slowly leading into a nice finish with a distinct liqourice note.
