Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: jt31914 on 06-19-2010

The 'oatmeal' in the name is due the 5% oatmeal in the the grist of this brew. Oats give beer a real thick mouthfeel, something definitely desirable in a stout! Black malt and roasted barley give the beer its color, and coffee-like flavors. If you like thick full-bodied & smooth stout, this beer is for you!

Served at the Taproom in Amana. Check the place out if you're around the area.

Poured into a 12oz plastic glass. Wish they would change their serve ware.

A: Pours thick and black almost like oil. A caramel 1/2" head that laid beautiful lace rings down the glass. Retention was low however with the majority of the session showing a carb supported crown.

S: Roasty, chocolate and dark coffee.

T: Follows aroma. Bitter roasted finish with a lingering bitterness throughout. A lovely bitter-sweet chocolate character presents itself.

M: Good carbonation, creamy with a slight carbonation tingle breaking up the smoothness. A little thin in body.

D: The richness could limit the amount consumed, but overall quite nice for an oatmeal stout.
