Bottle purchased at Trader Joe's in Pittsford, NY.

Pours a fairly dark brown, with a half inch head that lingers on the edges of the glass for a while, with a very small amount of lacing.

Smells like dark roasted coffee, toasted bread, smoke, and some chocolate.

This tastes pretty good for a $1 a bottle beer, and honestly tastes pretty good for any beer. There's a nice smoky roasted malt flavor, with some bitter chocolate, vanilla cream, and roasted coffee. The finish is sweet but slightly watery.

This is medium bodied, definitely a little thin, but not detrimentally so. There's a very creamy mouthfeel.

This is really excellent, alwasys fun to find a good beer in an unexpected place.

Dark blackish brown with big tan head.

Coffee and chocolate malts on the nose. Rich and substantial but not overwhelming. Malty and not much of a finish.

Overall enjoyable and a fantastic value.

Very good interpretation of the style. I enjoyed it and would buy it again; especially for the $1 per bottle price it fetches at Trader Joe's.

Stockyard Oatmeal Stout
12 oz. brown glass bottle, dated "9/15/13 14 14:05" on 24 April 2013

Notes: Black-brown dark mahogany body with ruby highlights. The creamy dark tan head drops to an average collar with minimal spotty and streaky lacing. Medium bodied with a median carbonation level = smooth and almost creamy. Chocolate/fudge and strong golden caramel and toffee notes greet you in the nose. The flavor adds a bit more nuttiness and some yeasty fruitiness to the mix. Leafy and grassy hops add balance along with a solid bitterness. Richly flavorful and satisfying without being overly malty or full bodied. Drinkable, and (bonus!) fairly inexpensive.

The color is deep, dark, black chocolate brown with decent tan head and nice clingy lacing. Aroma is very light and faint. Taste is creamy with flavors of lightly roasted coffee, some chocolate. Mouthfeel is relatively smooth, I would guess because it is an oatmeal stout. Slight bitterness, but itall comes together and balances very well. Light, pleasant aftertatste

Very impressed with this one...nice dark brown with quite a bit of a tan head..smell is of chocolate roasted malt touch of coffee and and some sugar coated nuttiness..taste is very good!! Follows the nose almost to a tee with a nice creamy mouthfeel..6 bucks for a sixer...hell yeah...this blows quite a few other porter/stouts and brown ales out the water...
