Enjoy this as a token of our appreciation. With the demise of Tröegs Oatmeal Stout, this long-forgotten recipe serves as an inspiration and a heartfelt thanks to our faithful stout fans.

What’s special here? We start with a seductive malty sweetness, combine it with hints of chocolate and roasted flavors and round out the texture and taste with a healthy helping of oats. A three-hop blend brings perfect balance to the sweet malt adding a dry finish to this big beer.

ben4321 (6144) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Location: Bottle at Paul’s Blind Impy Stout Tasting, 1/5/13

Aroma: The nose has some chocolate malts, roast, fruity notes, and a little oxidation
Appearance: This one pours a medium-dark brown color with a small tan head
Flavor: Taste-wise, the chocolate stands out, though there’s some mild oxidation too
Palate: The body is medium (light for the style), with a soft carbonation, and smooth feel
Overall Impression: I thought this was a decent beer, but it felt as though the age may have hurt it a bit. Still though, it was pretty solid.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 15, 2011
A: The beer pours a dark brown color with a creamy tan head. S: Very oxidized. Almost sherry- or port-like. Big dark fruits and a bit of booze. Some dark chocolate and a lot of roasted malts. Not too much roast or oatmeal character. T: Lightly roasty with a lot of dark chocolate and some noticeable alcohol--almost like a chocolate liqueur. Some dark fruit flavors like prunes and plums. A little bit of cardboard oxidation. M: Medium to full in body with a low to medium carbonation. Really heavy on the tongue. O: Some good things to it, but some negative ones as well. And, too boozy.

12oz bottle thanks to dashirey on BA. Pours dark brown, but light in color for the style, with a little bit of tan foam sitting on top that fades to swirls. Aroma is lots of sherry-like oxidation. Roast and chocolate as well. Flavor is nice and chocolatey. Pretty subtle for an RIS. Some dark fruits and sherry-like oxidation. Like a toned-down, aged Kate the Great almost. Medium-light bodied for the style, but very smooth. Low carbonation. Very enjoyable aged imperial stout overall. Drinkable.
