COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Almost every beer theme has variations and Oatmeal Stout is a fine one at that. Oatmeal as a grain adds a complex silky quality to brews as well as opacity (when used in large doses) and a bit of its own natural flavor as well. Our Oatmeal Stout takes a lot of cues from the multiple dimensions Stout can take with Oatmeal providing some body, texture, and spice. Its hopped with Cascade and Colombus and we use brown malt and some roasted malts which in conjunction give a slight fruit quality to the nose.

Roasty. Smooth. Had this at their tap room in saint Louis Fall 2012. Everything I tasted was good to great. This was my favorite of their beers.

Tap @ The Civil Life. Pours a reddish brown appearance with a light brown head that doesn’t have the best retention. Burnt, roasty malty, light caramel, light anise, light coffee aroma. Burnt toffee, oaty, caramel, black coffee, chocolate flavor. Not my favorite but drinkable.

Dark black. Thick off white head. Creamy...great use of oats. Dark roasted. Solid stout. I would love to try an imperial version.

Had a pint on tap at the brewpub in a dimple glass. It poured a near opaque black color, reddish hue at the edges, with thick, creamy, long-lasting foam and lace. True to style aromas and flavors: bready, toasty, roasty, tart and really smooth. Mildly fruity ale yeast esters. Full, silky, creamy mouthfeel. Perfectly bitter-sweet balance. Another exquisitely crafted beer from Civil Life. Delicious.

Yet another solid beer from Civil Life. Pours dark brown with a good sized beige head. The aroma has chocolate, smooth roast, some apple, vanilla and cream. Very nice. It has a medium smooth lush body with light soft carbonation. The flavor starts with dark chocolate, pepper, roasty malt and roasty bitterness. The finish adds some earth, darker chocolate and char. Quite a bit drier than the initial taste. Very nicely done oatmeal stout.
