The perfect oatmeal stout. Pours like a 40w motor oil! Great balance of sweet and oat. Good smoke notes with that perfect toasted toffee finish you expect from a great oatmeal stout. Thick, rich, and tasty.

Pours almost black w/ a medium semi creamy froth that stick to the walls leaving snail tracks the way down. Nice thick lacing w/ a full dusty canopy. Aromas of mildly roasted malts and a pinch of charcoal. Full nectar w/ velvety residual effers. Nice! Moderately roasted, thick and creamy, fantastic. No sweetness at all. Bold cocoa, raosted coffee bean, molases. I love this stuff. Theres a defined bittering on the finish w/ a perfect souring component. Perfect balance. The bitter cocoa really lingers on the finish. Highly recommended. sloshgator (741) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2012 Rich and tasty - you canít get a better stout. The right balance of malt, chocolate , smokey and coffee notes. Pours pitch dark with a tan head. Almost like eating a good quality chocolate ice cream. Aroma is there but not very pronounced. mrfizx (17) - Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Smooth, very little head developed. Tastes silky like a good oatmeal stout should. Aftertaste of oatmeal is present, yet slight. Hints of chocolate mixed in with the prevailing (yet not overpowering at all) coffee flavor. This has been a find for my stout-less summer so far!

Really delicious brew, a great oatmeal stout. The head is a nice beige and has a alluring burnt coffee aroma. Itís dark, pushing black and tastes of chocolate and hints of caramel. Well balanced with a nice finish. yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Pours cloudy black with deep dark brown head. Very appealing.
Nose is rich and full with roastyness and chocolate.
Palate is more of the same, thankfully. Big roasty flavors, sweet malt, and some hops in the balance but the focus is certainly on the smoooth roastyness. Very good.
Finish is medium and appetizing for the next sip. RyanK (275) - Rhode Island, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Pours dark with a dark foam head that dissipates, light can barely get through this. Smells of roasted oat malt, hops and a little chocolate. Taste somewhat bland, lots of hops for a regular stout. Actually does has a roasted oat malt aftertaste making it one of few oatmeal stouts that Actually Taste like Oatmeal! Becomes more creamy, smooth and tasteful as it warms the hops are more prominent when cold. Pretty easy to drink and enjoyable. Better than anything else Iíve had by Brekenridge and probably my favorite 6p Oatmeal Stout. Too many other companies get adventurous and make Oatmeal Stoutís that are sweet and just donít contain any type of grainy flavor. phildorsey (161) - Fort Carson, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours black with a thick brown foamy/frothy head. Roasted coffee aromas with a hint of chocolate. Taste is smooth and lightly fizzed but lively...with some bitterness. Overall; my expectation of this beer was exceeded as it was better than expected, I would also recommend this beer.
