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 from a trade a ways back....pours an almost black pour, closer to a dark brown with a thin wispy white head..... sour yeasty, roasted malt, red fruit, and chocolate aroma that seemed a bit off.... flavors recover a bit with chocolate, dark fruit, roasted malt, and a little booze. smooth mouthfeel with light carbonation.

12oz bottle I received from a kind person who I have forgotten their name. Black-brown, no head. It smells like candy malts and cocoa puffs cereal. The taste is oatmeal but the alcohol doesn’t work for me. I prefer oatmeal stouts to be more around 5-6% not 10. Oh well, this was still a good beer from a good brewery.

Poured a deep brown color with a ruby tint and thin tan head. Chocolate nose hits first with some mild roasted malt underneath. Lighter notes of vanilla and sugar round it out. Some chalky notes in there. Chocolate and roasted malt. Nice sweetness with a touch of raisin. Medium bodied and creamy.

puzzl (3251) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Bottle from Miver. Brownish black [mostly black] pour with a little head. The aroma has a syrupy, molasses note, some burnt coffee and coal and barbeque. Big, nice mouthfeel, a bit vegetal tasting, not nearly as sweet as the nose. Despite the thick mouthfeel this at times feels like it lacks body, as odd as that sounds. Some carbonic acid and milkiness is present, for sure. A decent IS.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2008
This poured dark brown in color with a thin light brown head. The nose was powerful with scents of fig, plum, chocolate and crème. In the mouth it was full-bodied, sweet and concentrated without being heavy. The flavors followed the nose before finishing both bitter and creamy. This is an interesting combination of sweet and lush along with dark and bitter.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Bottle, thanks hopdog! Pours translucent very dark brown with ruby lights and a thick and lacy tan head. Sweet aroma of brown sugar and chocolate. Silky full body, chewy, with light carbonation. Sweet taste of chocolate coffee and caramel, but not a big taste, and then whamo...a big and bitter chocolate pine finish. Overall, not a bad beer, but a little ’soft in the middle.’ The finish is more of a wakeup call than something that goes with the flow.
