COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While it may resemble a popular Irish Stout, our Oatmeal Stout is quite different. Most notably it's sweeter. Chocolate, coffee and caramel flavors round out this smooth, full-bodied beer.

Served on tap at Whistle Binky’s in Rochester, MN. Black with a khaki head. Thin lace. Roasted, latte taste with a semi sweet dry finish. I expected a hoppier note from summit. This beer is not to complex but is fair drinking with an Irish stew.

Nitro-tap, pours a opaque, black body with smooth, creamy, light brown head. Chocolate and roasted malt aroma. Flavor is also chocolate and roasted malts, only sweeter along with some hints of coffee. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel; medium-bodied. Slight dark-roast coffee finish. Very drinkable.

Tap @ William’s Uptown Pub, Minneapolis: Dark brown, tan head, nice head and lacing. Nose of sweet roasty oatmeal and herbs. The flavor is thin, a sweet creamy body. Finishes a bit tart. Hmm, meh.

On tap at the new stub and herbs. Light oatmeal aroma on this dark brown beer with creamy off-white head. Solid oatmeal flavor with hints of milk chocolate and a faint burnt character. Smooth going down with faint coffee finish.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2007
On tap (nitro-pour) at the brewery. Dark brown colour (although perhaps a touch pale for a stout) with a thick tan head. Rather lively - it took the bar tender a couple of pours to fill the glass. Quite milky aroma, although not lacking in roasty malt. These characteristics continue into the flavour, where there’s a little chocolate coming through. The mouthfeel is smooth, with a burnt caramel feel, and, whilst being described as on the sweet side, I thought it finished reasonably dry. Glad they had this one at the brewery, as I gather that the availability is limited. Pleasant, but I have to say I preferred the porter overall. I also have to say I’m not a big fan of nitro dispense anyway as it tends to favour texture over aroma.

Nitro tap at Groveland Tap. Aroma is complex after head dissapates: caramel, coffee, with slight chocolate and raisin in the background. Appearence is black with a standard frothy nitro head. Slight chocolate bitterness carries through a medium sour finish. Medium full bodied, definitely notice the oatmeal, but it could be a little less thin.
