Notes & Commercial Description:

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!

Low carbonation and head as expected, nice and chewy with a chocolate/coffee flavor. Smooth throughout with the malt and hops balanced. I see why it is brewed year-round. (172 characters)

Black and creamy looking, this beer also smelled wonderful. I thought I could smell the oatmeal. Smooth ,velvelty and somewhat sweet, this beer was quite nice. It has an understated richness, but with enough hop presence to not make this too cloying. I very much enjoyed this brew, even in the summer. (305 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: Big E-Z Cap swig-top brown one liter bottle with no freshness date.

Appearance: Ink black with a sizeable frothy tan head.

Smell: Creamy and sweet ... pretty much what you would get off of an iced cafe latte.

Taste: Silky smooth and held together by a textured medium body. Intermingling roasted and sweet malt flavours ... followed by more silky sweetness. Roasted flavours are a bit restrained though leave a nice bitter bite. Underlying caramel flavour and a coffee like aftertaste wrap up the finish.

Notes: Very drinkable and quite clean ... not your usual over roasted character found in a lot of oatmeal stouts, just good easy drinking. Goes perfect with any kind of chocolate. (710 characters)
