Stockyard Oatmeal Stout has a thick, creamy, frothy, beige head, lots of heavy lacing left on the glass, and a dark brown appearance. The aroma is of dark-roasted, but not burnt, barley malts, sweet chocolate, and some coffee. Taste is of sweet, dark-roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and smooth bitterness (chicory). Mouthfeel is medium and creamy (from the oatmeal), and Stockyard Oatmeal Stout finishes powdery and very delicious. Drinkability is quite high. RJT

This grew on me a bit as I consumed it. At start it seemed a bit too powdery and dry and thin. All that improved as it warmed. Cola, cocoa, coffee nose. Nice full aromas. Palate is just starting towards oily, a fine dark roast balancing this at the back. Fine low carbonation. Appearance is standard dark, low on highlights, spotty lacing. A decent beer and a great value for the quality.

Bottle into an English pint,ruby in color small rapidly diminishing light brown head that lacked much lacing at all.Malt aroma was average with notes of chocolate and cola. Medium mouth but a bit thin and lively for an oatmeal stout. Not a bad session stout.
