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.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2013 Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma is mild chocolate, coffee and malt. Delivers smooth flavors with no unwanted aftertastes. Velvety smooth texture but feels a bit diluted. An milder, easy to stink stout.

Draft. Dark brown, massive thick nitro head. Aroma of weak coffee. Taste is Starbucks with a bit of crean and cocoa. OK.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2011
On tap at Blue Moose in Iowa City, IA. Pours a very deep brown, almost black colored body with an inch thick, very dense and creamy, chocolate milk colored head that dissipates slowly and leaves a good amount of lacing throughout. Aroma is a nice mixture of dark and milky chocolates with a solid roast. Moderately sweet and a bit of earth in there as well. Flavor is similar. Milky and dark chocolates with a solid roast. A touch of earth again that comes in with the roast and helps this dry nicely with a light bitterness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid oatmeal stout. Very smooth and tasty with a well balanced flavor. Not bad at all.

Nice roast malt aroma. Served on nitrogen. Nice creamy head. Deep black color. Flavour is mildly sweet with modest dark roast flavour. Body is on the thin side for an oatmeal stout. Decent beer but I am probably being generous with my rating.

bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Serving glass: Poured from tap into Imperial Pint. Appearance: Jet black with thick creamy tan head expected for a nitro beer. Fantastic lacing lines. Aroma: Dry roasted aroma with chocolate, light coffee and oats. Taste: Somewhat sweet creamy taste with light roasted character, highlighting light coffee, milk chocolate and oats. Palate: Exceedingly smooth and creamy but maybe slightly thin. Expected nitro feel, which is quite nice. Overall: Very easy to drink with more flavor than a typical nitro beer. Great Oatmeal Stout overall.

On nitro at the MSP airport. Pours a dark brown color with a big tan head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt. Medium on the palate with a creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is sweet, roasted malt, with a clean, bitter-coffee finish. Pretty tasty.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 28, 2011
On tap (nitro) at Caponeís, Norristown. Great looking beer, with a super thick body, roiling with hefty sediment and a fat creamy looking head. Aromas of mild bakerís chocolate (sweet but with dry elements to balance it out, nicely enough), brown sugar, and a good loaf of bread. Mouthfeel was ever so slightly thinner than I wanted it to be, but still very enjoyable (Iíd probably have raved if I didnít know it was nitro). Flavors are very enjoyable on a rainy cool evening, with perhaps just a bit too much sweet for a guy who loves a dry finish on a stout like this. But it was overall a very fine brew.

Pours basically black with hints or deep ruby when held up to the light. The beer has a very thick tan head and as such displays very good lace. The aroma is boozy, boozy like cheap vodka and coffee. Honestly, through the first half of my glass all I could think about was how much it smelled like an over vodka-ed White Russian. As the beer warmed the coffee and light roastiness shined through without much bad vodka character. The beer was on tap and it was pretty cold, maybe it was a temperature issue... hopefully so. The flavor is much nicer. Iíd say this fits better into the dry stout category, in fact in many ways the flavor reminded me quite a bit of an Irish Stout, mellow but nicely roasty. Bitter from both hops and dark chocolate character. Mild coffee notes show themselves throughout. The palate is a tad watery but itís no Guinness, this seems light bodied but lively enough to drink quite a lot of.
