Drank a few at the brewery. Delicious stout! High drinkability for such a full-bodied brew. Very smooth, with lots of chocolate and coffee. Exceptionally well balanced. PackPride (112) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2013
I really like this beer from schlafly. It has a great body for an oatmeal stout, something I think lacks in a lot of other similar styles from other breweries. Great aromas of barley and oats, on the palate there's a nice fullness of oats and very light bitterness. Highly recommend.

Pours black with a tan head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate with a little dark fruit like fig or plums. Light lacing in the glass. Palate is medium to light. Taste of coffee and dark fruit. Not to sweet a little more bitter than most stouts. Overall nice beer. humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - MAY 20, 2003
Bottle in Minnesota, though bought at the brewery in St. Louis. A bit lighter than I would prefer, this brew has a robust roast and slight grapish flavor. Though not a strong beer, it has a redeeming complexity and a smooth ride down the gullet (no gizzard necessary). sethdude (706) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 31, 2003
Bottle: Pours a deep black, no detectable floaties, medium creamy head, good lacind, fairly thick, somewhat sweet. Is that bacon I tatste? Good hop balance. All in all, a very enjoyable stout.

Sample at the Taproom. Dark molasses color, a bit thin-looking. Big, creamy chocolate nose, with nice helpings of coffee and vanilla. Really interesting flavors, quite sweet and choco-caramelly with that swath of vanilla throughout; fabulous body, very thick but quite drinkable; bit lactic, sour and vinous at the finish. Somehow manages to be light, refreshing, deep and complex all at once; world-class sweet stout. Kevin (2200) - Montana, USA - AUG 15, 2004
tap. black with a bold white head that leaves lacing down the glass. aroma is of coffee. flavor is a strong roast coffee that is consistent from start to finish. had this with the sticky toffee pudding, and it was almost orgasmic. i love stouts and i love this one.

I’ve been sampling a mixed six pack of Schlafly’s and this is by far my favorite. Beautiful rich color with a light brown head. Subtle toast aroma. Huge flavor -- sweet burnt chocolate malt wonderfully balanced with hop bitterness. Full bodied and a long, warm finish. Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - NOV 23, 2004
Really dark color that wouldnt let any light through. I’m liking this stuff already. Roasty malts and sweet oatmeal aromas make the anticipation even greater. The flavor is a lot of the above with just the right amount of sweetness. Could use a bit more hop bite but thats just my two cents. Really enjoyable.

Rich, roasted malt aroma; sweet, with chocolate notes. Almost fully opaque body. Off white to almost light tan head. Mostly diminishing. Excellent lace. Roasted malt flavor. Quite a bite in the finish. Very nice. Very drinkable with no shortage of flavor.
