4.18/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours black with a thick head that laced nicely.

Smells like chocolate and maybe coffee

Taste: Yummy. Very malty. No 'burned' flavor from the roasting. Smooth and flavorful

Coats the mouth just right. Not too thin and not too syrupy.

Like I said: Smooth. Can easily drink a few in a sitting.

I don't know why this beer is 'retired'. Just bought mine last month...the label is the same. BUT it is brewed by JosephsBrau Brewing Co in San Jose Ca.

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.

3.84/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours opaque very dark brown with cola edges. The 1/2 inch khaki head settles to a film and thick ring on top that leaves thick strands of lace.

The smell is of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt and a hint of vanilla.

The taste is of roasted malt with chocolate and coffee accents.

The texture is medium bodied with high carbonation.

I'm pleasantly surprised by this one. A solid oatmeal stout. Roasted malt dominates with chocolate and coffee accents. Very good on its own; outstanding considering its price.

Had this a handful of times. Felt it was due for a review.

Picked up at Trader Joes in Buffalo for 1 dollar. When I had this for the first time in my life, I was blown away at the price and flavor. What are the macrobreweries missing out on?

A: Pours a dark jet black, with a light laced brown head that lines the glass. It looks good, but nothing spectacular.

S: Get some roasty notes of coffee, malt, and a little metallic for some reason. Not sure why.

T: Forget the smell, this thing is off the charts. Starts out rich and dark, then laces the tounge with a light amount of smokey flavor, followed by the sweet taste of vanilla. DAMN this is a fine tasting beer. It gets me every time how well balanced it is.

M: Slightly thick, but easily drinkable. Not heavy, but you do know that you're drinking an oatmeal stout.

O: For a staple beer of an oatmeal stout, this one has to take the cake. Trader Joes has something special here. I don't know how they made such a fine beer so cheap, but please share your magic with the others so that they can step up their crap.
