COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich, round and roasted, our Oatmeal Stout is satisfaction in a glass. It's a bold, smooth-bodied concoction that oozes dark-roasted coffee aromas and flavors of espresso and semi-sweet chocolate. We round out these heady pleasures with a dose of flaked oatmeal for a creamy body and a semi-dry finish. Unforgettable.

Color is nice and dark, head is soapy and looks like root beer. Aroma is very chocolatey but not very complex. Flavor is watery at first, then gives way to burnt malt, chocolate and finally oatmeal. I thought the overwhelming flavor was chocolate, rather than coffee... maybe an espresso aftertaste that develops well after tasting. This has some pretty good flavors, but really lacks a solid structure a good body and a palate that comes together. Dissappointing for a stout and for Breckenridge.

Deep cherry in apppearance and total opaque. Picked up hints of roasted malt and coffee with a very slight hint of oatmeal in the aroma. Once I tasted it, the dominant feature was the coffee. If you could ferment black coffee, this might be what it would taste like. The flavor was pretty thin and dry - almost watery. For an oatmeal stout, I am suprised at the lack of oatmeal. It might be there, but is overwhelmed by other things. Overall not particularly bad, but not outstanding either.

Very unique, but not uniquely good. Not much in the aroma, dark black body with a very small tan head. Too much coffee and semi-sweet chocolate in this one. Taste that usually goes along with oatmeal stouts wasnt there. It wasnt that I hated this beer, but it is definantly classified in the wrong section. Perhaps Breckenridge needs to rethink this one a bit.

Courtesy of Duane. <P> Aroma is of burnt grains/malt and mildly plastic-y. So dark plack it almost has a purple hue to it. Head is a compreseed pinky finger sized affair. Fore is somewhat smokey and toasty. Not at all to style. Palate gets thin and the flavor is watery with a mish mash of weak chocolate, tone down vanilla, cream and coffee. Just doesnt get it right.

The best beer Ive tasted from this brewer. less bread-like, more complex than I expected. Strong roasted coffee aroma and flavor.

Pouredfrom the botle like Hershey syrup with a head. Smokey, woodsy, flavor was not what I expected from an oatlmeal stout, but not without merit.

Sincere (145) - wichita, Kansas, USA - JAN 9, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2006 12 oz bottle. Pours dark and opaque. Medium sized light brown head that quickly diminishes. Good lacing on glass. The aroma is amazing, with a distinct chocolate and coffee emsemble. The beginning taste is smooth following into a slight but quickly disappearing medium, with a pleasant nutty and malty aftertaste. This was not only my first oatmeal stout, it was my first stout in general, so in turn I have the right to say this is an excellent beginners stout.

Growler from Breckenridge location. Pours an opaque black with medium viscosity and a dark brown head. Quite a strong coffee and chocolate aroma that is dominant in the flavor as well...a bit of roasted hazelnut flavors as well with a medium sized body. Better than I expected even after a few days in the growler.
