COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with over 200 pounds of organic rolled oats in each batch, this smooth-as-silk stout is brimming with darkly roasted malts and rich notes of chocolate and coffee. A mocha-topped, black-as-night body gives way to a surprisingly smooth, full-bodied experience in this unfiltered offering.

Rich coffee and roasted malt aromas. Full dark tanhead that hung around for a while. Clear dark ruby brown colored beer. Flavor starts out good with a full coffee roasted malt taste but the body is thin and the flavor fades in to a lingering dry finish. Not as good as I thought it would be but a decent beer. I am used to more body and flavor from an Oatmeal Stout. This was more like a dry stout than a sweet.

Suttree (5289) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Reddish Brown, thin tan head. Aroma of Chocolate, tar (but not in a particularly bad way) bread and oatmeal cookies. Taste much drier than the aroma suggests. burnt toast, cookie and chocolate flavors vie for attention. Nice and unique. A pleasent surprise.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2006 Pours a medium/dark brown. Average head for a stout. Quite sweet mocha expresso aroma. Impressed...good sweet carmel chocolate coffee taste with a little orange squeezed into the mix. Nice and smooth going down.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2004
Pours black, nothing else. Some little head starts out, then nothing. Some lace. Mocha aromas, roast malts, and just a touch of hops and fruit. The flavors hold true to the nose. Mocha starts us out, leads into a roasted malt and chocolate, finishing with a nice bittering hops. Full bodied and a slightly oily palate, and a finish of bitter hops and alcohol.

Black like tar. Fluffy beige head. Lovely roasty aroma with a taste halfway to a Rauchbier due to its heavy smokiness (I feel like I'm in a room with a bunch of cigars). Not as sweet as the Oatmeal Stout moniker might make you think, though there's a hint of sweetness and more than a touch of coffee. Those who like a quality, darkened stout would do well to give this a try.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Dark black/brown color with tan head. The aroma is partially smoky and sweet with lactic chocolate smells. The flavor is roasted and maginally dry with a bit of coffee in the finish. A balanced sweet/dry end to a medium bodied stout. Good stuff!

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 18, 2004
(Bottled on 1/14/04) (98% organic 2% non organic) The nose is full of bittersweet chocolate and malt. The bouquet reminds of malted milk balls. The palate is medium in body with a pronounced coffee roastiness that is highly appetizing. As for the finish, it is long malty with a good combination of balanced hops and dark cocoa. Hallertau is used to bitter this beer, which is odd because hallertau is typically a lager hop. This is a solid everyday oatmeal stout.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2004
This stout is very much roasted coffee/chocolate-centric. The robustness found here doesn't settle on the palate as well as it could but...umm...it's organic so I guess it's a good trade off? A fairly middle of the road beer that was kind of a strange choice for cross-country distribution.

canary dog (680) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - FEB 8, 2004
A relatively unexciting micro-brewed dry stout. Not a lot of flavor, save a bit of roastiness. Very little head.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Rich burnt chocolate aroma, a little salt, some rasins. Thin head, black body. Molasses, burnt coffee and cream flavors. A bit thin.
