President Ulysses S. Grants (Uly to his friends) Chocolate Oatmeal Stout is what this ale is all about! As dark as the mines of Galena, this stout has a rich and creamy tanned head which leaves beautiful lacing in your glass as it is enjoyed. You will savor the profound notes of chocolate and roasted malt which dominate its flavor profile. Roasted coffee notes linger on the palate to entice the next sip!

On tap at the Great Taste of the Midwest. The aroma touches on chocolate and coffee but not much else. Mildly chocolate and coffee flavor, mixed with water and seltzer. Meh.

Skyview (5866) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2010
On draught at the Galena Brewing Company brewpub in downtown Galena, Illinois. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with a slow dissolving beige head that leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate malt, a hint of black malt, and some floral hops. Taste is medium bodied, with toasted dark malt, coffee, bakers chocolate and some grassy hops. Finish is slightly dry, some acidic aftertaste texture with a toasted dark malt aftertaste with a mild grassy hop bitterness that slowly disappears. More of a dry Irish Stout than a Sweet Stout.

Poured from a gift growler from neighbors who very recently visited the brewery. Displayed a black/brown hue with lighter, brownish tan, billowly head foam on top of darker bubbles, and curtainy webbing as lacing. The aroma was very roasty, with bakers chocolate, espresso, a touch of smoke, and hints of caramel and molasses. The flavor offered smooth malt, a touch of woodiness, and low hop bitterness at the back in this "a bit heftier than medium" bodied brew.. Low carbonation was not a deterring factor. There was a light creaminess to the mouthfeel, and a pleasant dryness to the finish. Good complexity, and very quaffable.

Bottle shared by nuplastikk...thanks Greg! - Pours dark brownish black with a foamy tan head. Nose is a bit of sour milk, smooth dark malt--though not a ton of pungency in the smell. Taste is smooth and mellow with dark bread malt, prominent oatmeal, and some chocolate. Thickish with a really smooth carbonation.

On tap at GTMW 2011, pours a very dark brown/black with a nice brown head, the aroma and flavor were notes of chocolate with a somewhat bitter finish, some coffee mixed in there as well, didnt make a huge impact on me with all the other stouts I had this day.

[Bottle] Deep brown colored pour is almost opaque. Chestnut colored foamy head. Aromas of milk chocolate, dark brown sugar, light vanilla and oats. Taste is of cocoa powder, mocha, vanilla, ash and anise. The finish seemed to hint at chicory too. Creamy texture. Fair lacing. Nicely balanced.

AKA, Ulys Oatmeal Stout. This beer was tremendous. I suppose it would make ol U.S.G. proud.
