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.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 27, 2008
Bottle courtesy Gillard. Pours a dark brown with a one finger tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of roasted urinal cake. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild to moderate amount of bitterness. Would not try again.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2008
Bottle thanks to lb4lb, thanks dude. Poured a chestnut brown color with a dense, pinkish-beige head that stuck around relatively well and left some nice lacing. Aroma of light chocolate, some nuttiness, and faint roasted malt. Smooth malty entry leads into a light bitterness with some chocolate and a decent oat character, ends slightly bitter. No real roast or coffee character at all. Not bad, but not good. Really shouldn’t be considered an imperial stout. Thanks again Deniz.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 13, 2008
Bottle from acrdz. Pours somewhat muddy dark brown with a lasting thin head. Aroma is mostly sweet with hints of chocolate, mocha, with a little roast. More sweetness in flavor with cocoa, chocolate, mocha, some caramel malts, and a light roast backing it up. Some herbal earthy hops round out the flavor profile. A creamy imperial stout that is more sweet than roasty. Alcohol barely noticeable. Good.

jake65 (2729) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 11, 2008
Bottle: Dark brown with a large, creamy tan head. Thick sheets of lacing. Soft cocoa and roasty notes arise. Light coffee. Flavor is smooth and roasty with a light bit of bittersweet chocolate in the tail. Barely a hint of oats. Sweet and creamy there is this little bit of vanilla that I am really liking. Thanks to The_Epeeist for this trade gem.

Bottle courtesy of kramer17801. Thanks!
Pours black with some light getting through and a lasting tan head. Smell is faintly roasty, but not getting much of anything in the nose surprisingly. Taste is roasty, sweetness, cocoa powder, is generously bittered and shows a bit too much alcohol. Somewhat silky body, and light to moderate carbonation. This was okay overall, but not a favorite of mine.

Sammy (8941) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2008 A strong ABV oatmeal stout that is mostly bitter, yet still secondary malted. Full mouthfeel black with odest white head. Some chocolate and coffee, wll drinkable. Maybe not the best oatmeal stout I have tried, but a good one.

ChainGangGuy (4422) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Appearance: Pours a dark brown body topped by a thin, wispy, ivory-colored head. Smell: Somewhat meager aroma of dark malts, cocoa powder, and dark fruits. Taste: Roasted dark malts team up with dark fruits and deliver a mild sweetness. Taste of bittersweet chocolate. Smoked mint. Roasty, warming finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slight creaminess to the mouthfeel. Drinkability: Decent enough for a fun, one-time experiment by the brewery. I paired the writing of this review with a caprese sandwich, which, while not a beer, and instead being a delightful sandwich with mozzarella, tomato, basil, and balsamic viniagrette, was quite good.

travita (4160) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Light brown color not too much head. Caramel in the aroma. Sweet in the taste with alcohol. Missing something especially for the style. Not much hops there at all. Residual sweetness.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2008
(Bottle) Pours a light hazy medium brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of cocoa, toastiness, vinous, oatmeal, and caramel. Flavor of cocoa, nuts, light anise, and toasted malt.
