Oatmeal stouts never impressed me but the wolavers seemed to finish allot smoother. Yet the body was not so full to fill you up

This is my gold-standard oatmeal stout. Finally had on on tap at Columbia Gorge Hotel. Ninkasi Oatis comes close, but this one really satisfies all aspects of stouthood. Check out the Organic Beer Festival at Overlook Park this summer - Wolaver is always there and always hits it out of the park, especially on a nitro tap!

among my favorites in terms of oatmeal stout. at the softer end of the spectrum of its class. it’s a little soft almost like a porter but stands on it’s own. Not so heavy a beer which permits sucking back a few.

Modest, frothy tan head with a dark, rusty brown body. Creamy aroma of chocolate, hazelnuts and light roast. Abundant roast and char in the flavor, slightly grainy with burnt husky notes, and obvious hops. Fairly dry for an oatmeal stout with a medium bitter finish. Lightly starchy texture. A fair stout.

Pours super dark and thick. Great notes of roasting and coffee in the nose. Surprisingly light and easy on the palate for being such a thick beer. An almost mocha flavor, though it lacks the harshness that coffee does. Really great find.

Bottle sampled at 55F Pours very dark, held to direct setting sun, dark reddins brown shines through. Modest fizzy head that leaves in a bit of a hurry. Moderate lacing is present. Smells smokey and dark. Taste is smokey, like campfire charcoal. Not much sweetness but still very tastey. As it warms up a bit, carbonation that was not much is decreasing of course and the woody smokey flavor is coming out more now. Must be the Oatmeal in these that really mellow out a stout. Finish is very smooth and clean. Nary a trace of hopps or lingering bitters. A good one that is under rated IMO.

A very good stout. Great color, aroma and flavor. One of the best stouts that I’ve had in a while.

Pretty dayum good. This beer harks of the dark character in a true stout beer. Truly a good beer from cap to refund... a beer that is not afraid to be yummy and true to the noble category. The chololate-rum-rasin-brandyish flava is pleasant because the taste is mild but sweet and off-biter yet gentle. Great organic qualites as the lable indicates. Last seen at Krestons in the spring ’05 in Middletown, DE.

Muddy brown, utterly opaque, under a thick, gooey, cocoa tan head. Nice looking, indeed! Nose burst with cocoa, rich and powdery at once, with bittersweet espresso hints at the side. Very nice. I’ll drink it in as often as I can...ahhh!!! Tastin’ it...big chocolate all over the mouth, thick presence on the palate, powerfully rich and damnably delicious. A humdinger, this one. Dry cocoa feel persists and remains strong on the palate, leaving the dusky husky flavor all over the mouth. Quite an impact! Full bodied, to say the least, with a long, bittersweet, lightly hoppy, abundantly malty finish. I really like this one. Makes an impact, and imparts deliciousness. Can’t beat that!
