I discovered this beer at my local Trader Joes. It is not the typical stout, the coffee overtones and smooth taste make it a very drinkable beer- almost to the point where I must pound down two in short time because it is so delicious. Definately my favorite beer with Sierra Nevada Pale ale in second. I have also recently enjoyed Blue Moon. jtclockwork (17070) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Dark black pour. Very light and crisp oatmeal stout. It’s just tasty. Not the heartiest stout I’ve had, but this one is worth drinking. Rated 3/21/04 gbeerrater (29) - Louisiana, USA - AUG 8, 2014
A great find from Trader Joes at only $5.99 a six pack
chocolate, mocha, tobacco, with with a nice mild bitter bite.
real nice lacing and readily available as a Trader Joes staple.
Tastes like oat stouts which would command a higher price. Its thinner than a lot of Oat stouts but also easier to drink. Probably could squeeze in a few bottles after dinner with no problem which would be hard to do with a oat stout like Samuel Smith.
Definitely a beer buyers best buy boycotting big budget brands. snick222 (2) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAR 2, 2015 does not count
I was surprised that I like this beer as much as I did. It seemed to get everything right, great flavor, great balance, and a real smooth feel as you drink sdhunter (10) - - JUL 13, 2017
Excellent beer from Trader Joe's. Will definitely buy again, if I can find it. Dark stout. Smooth after taste. Glad it was suggested by a Trader Joe's manager.

Stockyard Oatmeal Stout has a thick, creamy, frothy, beige head, lots of heavy lacing left on the glass, and a dark brown appearance. The aroma is of dark-roasted, but not burnt, barley malts, sweet chocolate, and some coffee. Taste is of sweet, dark-roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and smooth bitterness (chicory). Mouthfeel is medium and creamy (from the oatmeal), and Stockyard Oatmeal Stout finishes powdery and very delicious. Drinkability is quite high.

Quite a good beer. I like Oatmeal Stouts as a rule and this is no exception/ A really good flavor of chocolate and coffe are prevelent. A bit hoppy which does not work for this style. Overall worthy and cheap so why not try it? tysongillmore (362) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Pretty smooth. Slightly on the tobacco side. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone.

Deeply brown and red to the eye. Malt, coffee, sugarcane and maple on the nose, with a densely coffee malt flavor; aftertastes of dark chocolate and oatmeal. Very smooth, with neither excessive bite nor slime. Chewy. Extremely enjoyable, great as a late dessert with or without a brownie. deltamarik (50) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2008
One of the advantages of moving to the Midwest: being able to get this at Trader Joe’s for $6/6-pack. You won’t find a better beer for the price. Maybe not the equal of a Sam Smith, but on a grad student budget, it’s nice to know that someone’s looking out for you.
