Smooth oatmeal taste with a fair amount of boldness at the end. As far as oatmeal stouts this is the standard of measures. edbeered (2) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2004 does not count
A great new (on draft only)offering from Summit. Smooth and balanced-the flavors are quite subtle. There’s chocolate, oatmeal, and a hint of fruit(plum?). Indy (87) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Truly tragic to see this one go the way of the dodo. Then again, I’m glad I was able to have some at all. This is one of the best stouts I’ve ever had...like Guiness with better aroma and more crispness.
I really hope it comes around again. peteysmu (63) - USA - DEC 25, 2011

Deep black color, opaque in the relatively dim lighting of the restaurant. Light carbonation. 3/4 inch off-white to tan creamy thick head. Attractive lacing clings as you drink The verbal deScription does not do it justice... this is a gorgeous looking beer. Malty sweet aroma with hints of roastiness. Moderately thick mouth feel, very smooth and creamy. A bit of carbonation apparent to the tongue. Matly, smokey, hints of cocoa flavor. Slight bittering in the middle. Clean, crisp, slightly bitter finish. Absolutely wonderful.

My experience with summit is still relatively limited and has generally been on the hoppier spectrum. Their Oatmeal Stout makes it obvious they can handle dark beer too. It hits all the right notes. Black body with a rich layer of suds. Roast/toast malt aromas. Semi-sweet flavors with assertive coffee and chocolate characteristics. While not hugely boozy there’s some pleasant warmth to this. Thick, smooth, dry, and creamy textures. Very tasty. Obfuscate (573) - Minneapolis, - JAN 7, 2016
UPDATED: APR 28, 2017 Sets up beautifully. Nice and creamy, very easy to drink. Subtle chocolate and cream. Good milk stout. dysurian (3) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2007 does not count
Nitro tap at Groveland Tap. Aroma is complex after head dissapates: caramel, coffee, with slight chocolate and raisin in the background. Appearence is black with a standard frothy nitro head. Slight chocolate bitterness carries through a medium sour finish. Medium full bodied, definitely notice the oatmeal, but it could be a little less thin. punkeedo (498) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - SEP 30, 2008
2008 Tap. This is an excellent Oatmeal Stout, perhaps the best I’ve ever had. Deep, dark chocolate color with a resiliant, beautiful cream-colored head. This head lasted ’til the end of the glass, which I nursed. Smells of chocolate, maybe a little fruit, and coffee. Tastes of dark, roasted malts and brown sugar with a light alcohol aftertaste. All the flavors work beautifully together, making this ultra-quaffable and fun to drink. Enjoy! obxdude10 (2324) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2009
This oatmeal stout is truely a far cry from most of the others I’ve sampled in the past. But that was a good thing. I sampled this beauty on the Craft Ale House’s nitro tap, and it delivered a ton of flavor and character. The color was black and the head was a beautiful brown color. There was plenty of lacing left behind on the glass, as well. In the nose, I picked up on a ton of chocolate and coffee notes. The flavors features more tones of cocoa and coffee, but also included some hints of caramel, cream and light hops. The body was extremely smooth and very drinkable. The finish had almost a milkshake-like character to it. This is definitely one of the better oatmeal stouts I’ve had the pleasure of sampling.
