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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a very dark ruby color; Im let down that its not mostly pitch black. The head is a one finger mocha shade. Retention is decent, and nice lacing is left behind. S: Theres a nice snap of roast here, along with a significant nuttiness. Hints of chocolate and oatmeal float around. Nothing special here, but it hits all the right notes a lighter oatmeal stout should. T: Actually, it tastes closer to a roasty brown ale than a stout. The start is strong in roasted flavor, before a finish of nuts and oatmeal. I know whats missing from this brew, but its hard for me to explain, so Ill just say this: all the roast here need more stouty flavor to balance it out. Just a bit more defined sweetness (like cream or chocolate) would go a long way toward making this really good. M: This is a lot drier and cleaner than I expected, with only a hint of lingering sweetness. The strong carbonation helps its drinkability cause, too. But you know what would really give it great drinkability? Better flavors. O: Eh.

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Greg & Janes Beer and Wine. Appearance is dark brown/mahogany with no head, no sparkle and no lacing. Aroma is moderately strong roasted malts, light dark fruit, vanilla, chocolate. Taste is mix of sweet dark fruit/chocolate and milder vanilla with bitter roast. Palate is medium bodied with creamy texture, lively (almost fizzy) carbonation and dry, mostly bitter roasty finish. Overall, all the attributes of a stout are here but everything is executed at a pretty average level. Too carbonated.

Bottle poured into my Delirium snifter. Pitch black color with a fizzy, frothy tan head. Cocoa, espresso, dark roast coffee, and earthy tones in the aroma. Initial taste is very roasty with caramel, raw cocoa, and coffee. Aftertaste is roasted coffee bitterness. Body is a little light for a stout with medium carbonation. Decidedly better as it warmed but not my favorite.

Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout has a thin-to-medium, beige, cola-type head of foam, a very dark-brown (essentially black) appearance, with tight bubble streams on the sides of the glass, and just a few lacing strings left behind. Aroma is of acrid, sharp malt, some raisin, and pungent note. Taste is of acrid, roasted malt, a bit of char, some sweetness, and the bitterness stems from the carbon, more so than from hops. Mouthfeel is a bit watery, and Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout finishes medium-wet and a bit dull. RJT

Dark brown pour, no head. Roasty, smoky, meat aroma. Flavor of chocolate, vanilla, coffee. Slightly bitter, with a smack of ham to it...

Bottle from Garys--the only dark they had for a really cold night. Its fine, just nothing much to it. Pretty smooth, some roast malt flavor. OK.

This is a very, very bitter stout. They should have a bitter stout category since it appears so many oatmeal/imperials seem to taste that way. I wouldnt go out of my way for this, needs way more malt/ABV.
