COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Enjoy this as a token of our appreciation. With the demise of Tröegs Oatmeal Stout, this long-forgotten recipe serves as an inspiration and a heartfelt thanks to our faithful stout fans.

What’s special here? We start with a seductive malty sweetness, combine it with hints of chocolate and roasted flavors and round out the texture and taste with a healthy helping of oats. A three-hop blend brings perfect balance to the sweet malt adding a dry finish to this big beer.

12oz bottle. When I first started on this brew I was thinking Barley Wine, I guess I was wrong. Pours a very dark caramel brown with a sea foam like beige head, some spotty lacing. Sweet toffee, caramel, brown sugar and candied dark fruits in both the nose and the flavor. A little watery on the palate with a light hop bitterness.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Pours a very dark amber brown color with reddish chestnut brown edges when held to a light source and a huge foamy beige head with excellent retention leaving chunks of lacing here and there on it’s way down. Sweet alcohol aroma with a lot of dark fruit notes and an underlying roasted chocolate malt backbone. Hints of chocolate, toffee, coffee and oatmeal. Medium bodied that is slightly watered down. Pretty hoppy up front with a lot of oatmeal flavor followed by by a smooth roasted maltiness with hints of chocolate, caramel, oatmeal, burnt toast, coffee, toffee and a sweet yet dry hop finish.

auerbrau (3166) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 3, 2009
12oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing FooFaa! Soft, slightly oxidized alcohol and carameled brown sugars. A bit of deeper grains. Pours a dark clear brown, with a yellowish tan. Flavor is genericly sugar and alcohol. Hot. Hot. Hot. I can’t dig much out other than some plain malt, darker sugars, and a bit of grain. Past peak, probably. As an Imperial stout, this seems sub-par.

12oz bottle from MrBendo - thanks, Todd!!! Super yummy aroma on the pour from this bad boy. I’ve enjoyed the regular oatmeal stout from Troegs, and this amped up version is pretty tasty too. Oddly thin pour, looking more like an old ale or a brown, but the mouthfeel is somehow just fine, velvety and thick. Lots of chocolate and caramel for sure, and I wish there were just a bit more of the roasted quality. But overall this is a fine brew, which they should do again.

Poured black with tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted coffee. Light coffee and chocolate flavor. Medium body. Solid.

radiomgb (2236) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2009
Near black in colour with a thin tan head, good lacing. The aroma is lightly roasty, some white sugar, dark fruits and chalk. The flavour is quite sweet, roasty, dark malts, unsweetened bakers chocolate. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes medium length, moderately bitter with some chocolate malts.

Not overly alcoholic but at times you can notice it. A bit harsh and acidic at times.

355ml bottle obtained in a trade with TheCheeseMan, thanks Dan.
Opened on November 9, 2008.
Bottled 2007.
