3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown, tan head with considerable lacing. Not much aroma, but the flavor is quite good. Coffee, dark chocolate, slightly bitter. Good stout, and as many have already said, for $5.99 a six-pack, quite the bargain.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A great find from Trader Joes at only $5.99 a six pack
chocolate, mocha, tobacco, with with a nice mild bitter bite.
real nice lacing and readily available as a Trader Joes staple.
Tastes like oat stouts which would command a higher price. Its thinner than a lot of Oat stouts but also easier to drink. Probably could squeeze in a few bottles after dinner with no problem which would be hard to do with a oat stout like Samuel Smith.
Definitely a beer buyers best buy boycotting big budget brands.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.
