I like oat beers, and I like this one. I am careful never to run out at home. I like the unique flavor, and the change of taste across my tongue, from bitter, to oaty, with a smooth finish.

Serving: Bottle into tulip
Served: 2 November 2014

Appearance: Pours a deep black with a soft head that quickly diminishes. Some bubbles sticking around along the edges. Leaves minimal, if any lacing.

Smell: Soft roasted notes of dark roast coffee and chocolate. Little to no hops in nose.

Taste: Great body and depth of flavor. Notes of dark chocolate, faint coffee/espresso notes, a light graininess. The beer finishes pretty sweet, though it's not a milk stout, and this sweetness seems to become more prevalent as the beer warms.

Mouthfeel: Soft and smooth on the tongue, with medium-high body.

Overall: The best off-brand beer I've ever bought, and for $6.50/sixer, one I'll consistently buy during the upcoming winter months. Would definitely seek this out if you're looking for a cheap but delicious brew and you have a Trader Joe's nearby!

Purchased a single 12 oz. for $1 at TJ's to try. Was impatient so I poured room-temperature into a pint glass. This was my first visit with the Stockyard Oatmeal Stout.

Appearance - Dark-brown to black caramel color, moderate amount of carbonation, thick frothy head with long retention time. Clear around the sides of the glass when held up to the light. Has a very inviting presentation for an oatmeal stout.

Smell - Malts: sweet, lightly roasty and toasty. Hops: light hop aroma, hard to distinguish notes through the dominant malty scents. Overall smells very nice and clean.

Taste - Sweet and dessert like. Fantastic and smooth roasted flavor. Very well rounded to the oatmeal stout type. Malt heavy, hop light. I really like it. Great drinkability too; no one characteristic is overpowering in any way.

Mouthfeel - Very smooth. Leaves the lips nice and sticky. Retained a slight effervescence and went down nicely.

Overall - I really liked this oatmeal stout. It fulfilled my craving for an oatmeal stout in every way. I would go out of my way to try it again. Didn't have a strong alcoholy feel to it so I didn't feel to guilty drinking it rather quickly.
