The beer pours an almost completely opaque brown. The scant translucent brown head dissipated to a foam ring.

The aroma was roasty and of coffee with some sweetness and a little breadiness. There was no hops component to the aroma.

Sweetness carries the day here and virtually overpowers the roastiness. This beer seems too sweet even for this style. There was only a hint of hops astringency.

This beer has a light body with medium carbonation.

Overall, this beer is OK, but was a little too sweet even for me. Reminds me of a milk stout.

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.
