COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich in color with a strong body and a very creamy texture, the Oatmeal Stout is a true beer lover's brew. The slight hop aroma distinguishes this stout from any other. The Oatmeal Stout is robust, full of body and flavor, and topped off with a creamy light brown head.

Dry, yet some brown sugar and oats in the flavor. The aroma is full and roasty. The body is too thin in my opinion. The finish is a tad sour. Highly infused with lactose. A very average, plain oatmeal stout, but it's not unpleasant.

A recipe for Grays Oatmeal Stout: Start with about 2/3 of a pint of Heartland Farmer Jon's Oatmeal stout. Add 1/3 of a pint of water. Stir. This beer is now ready to enjoy, in all it's thin, weak glory. I suppose this beer is a good "gateway stout" for people who aren't into real beer yet, but this fell short for me.

Dark color with a nice choclatey aroma. A choclate and coffe flavor were just a bit present, and continued though the end.

This is the first oatmeal stout I had that actually tasted like I was drinking a bowl of Quaker Oats. Different to say the least. Not bad, it's sweet, nice black, stouty. Pretty good stout.

This one is pretty good as sweet stouts go, though not overly impressive. I like a little more KICK to my sweets, and this one lacked something to really make it stand out. Good, nevertheless.

4.2
ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2003
Sweet coffee aroma with a hint (promise) of hops. Average-sized, tan head, though mostly diminishing. Brown body; fully opaque. Very good flavor, with almost a perfect amount of bitterness for a stout. However, as it warmed a pervasive diacetyl taste dominated the finish, causing a point deduction. Still, very solid.

Dark brown with almost no head (but what head it had was also very dark). Sweet smell, and a taste of oatmeal and coffee. Good stuff.

Sweet roasted flavor covered by a thin brown head. Good density and a smooth finish. A flavorful and drinkable oatmeal stout.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2005 Good flavors of coffee and sweet, chocolatey malt. Fruity. Nicely bittered. Not much of the silky mouthfeel I associate with a good oatmeal stout.

wow...have to say this one is a damn fine looking beer! perfectly opaque held up to the light. head is definitely brown. aroma is a mixture of chocolate and coffee that comes off with a hint of gasoline..yeah, i think i’m nuts!! great coffee flavors but the body is a little thin...either way, this was a big surprise.
