COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
TASTING NOTES Tröegs Oatmeal Stout is our interpretation of the classic dry stout style. Dark and creamy with hints of chocolate and black currants, our Oatmeal Stout includes a healthy dose of Centennial and Chinook hops creating a unique stout perfect for the late Fall and Winter.

FOOD COMPLEMENTS With a full-bodied, creamy finish, Tröegs Oatmeal Stout is best with desserts; it is the perfect companion to dark chocolates, cocoa-based treats, caramels, peanut butter desserts and vanilla ice cream.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2007
Nearly black color with a small head. Aroma of dark roasted malts and coffee. Also some oats and a slight grassy hop background. Taste is more nutty, with coffee and chocolate base. Heavy to medium body. Medium dry finish.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2007
12oz bottle via trade with MrBendo. Aroma: Roasted grain, chocolate, vanilla, cream, coffee, pine and resin. Appearance: Black in color. Head was medium beige in color and was full and frothy with great retention. Great lacing. Flavor: Roasted nuts, coffee, chocolate, smoke, and a touch of dark fruits. Pine, resin, and light grass into the finish. Medium-light bitterness. Finishes fairly dry. Palate: Medium-light bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: Another good brew from Troegs. Liked the roasted grains here. Smooth and drinkable.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2007
Pours pitch black in the glass with a thin ivory head. Lots of lacing. Smells grainy and creamy, hints of sweet coffee. Taste is grainy and robust. Bitingly bitter followed by a creamy sweetness from the oatmeal. Long roasty aftertaste. Mouth is very carbonated which masks alot of the creaminess and roasty flavor which is a shame. A bit less carbonation and this beer would be a great one. As it is it’s an above average and quite drinkable oatmeal stout.

holdenn (2078) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2007
12 oz thanks to my SS! Pours black with a small tan fizzy head that fades without any lacing. Sweet coffee roast aromas a little uncomplicated and flat but not bad nonetheless. Fizzy sweet chocolate roasted flavors and a bitter coffee roast finish. Tasty.

millysdaddy (67) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2007
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Color is a very dark mahogany with a little ruby. A light brown head. Roasty malt aroma. Hop bitterness up front, followed by a robust malty backbone. The bitterness of the hops leaves a dry aftertaste.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Bottle from trade with AxlLives. Thanks Bryan! Pours a rich black color with a small tan head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee and drk chocolate. The stout has a very smooth crreamy mouthfeel without any bitterness. The taste is exceptionally balanced and no one flavor is over the top. Finishes with a roasted malt touch. Very nice.

OldGrowth (2617) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 26, 2006
Bottle, from trade with zathrus13. Good aroma. Sweet & malty. That milkiness that oats give to it. Malted chocolate,Vanilla, and when cold a pine that faded as it warmed. Dark orangy brown color, small head that faded moderately. Minor lace. Bitter flavor, totally loses the good part of the aroma. Turns sharp & roasty.A viney/grapiness takes over. Lite chocolate remains. Medium body, creamy smooth mouthfeel, Bitterdry finish. Good, aroma gave me higher hopes than the flavor delivered. Too viney for my preference in Oatmeal stout. Thanks zathrus13. After reading the commercial description I can get the black current that they were going for, I’m just not diggin it.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2006
Dark, dark, brown with a small tan lacing around the sides of the glass. Aroma: bursting with roasted malts, cocoa and vanilla. The flavor is filled with vanilla and even has a really nice nuttiness to it. I’m particularly fond of the full, chewy mouthfeel.

notalush (4795) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2006
Very dark brown pour, with a creamy, lasting tan head - aroma of coffee and cream, hot cocoa, a bit of vanilla, and background plum hints - smooth mouthfeel, medium body - drier than most sweet stouts, with quite a potent espresso bitterness to it - cocoa and chocolate pudding come later, along with a hint of toffee - semi-dry, moderately bitter finish - quite nice.
