I have had the oatmeal stout on a number of occasions. It is a great beer every time. It pours a rich, black color with a creamy, white head that is large, long-lasting, and adds lacing to the pint from top to bottom. This is one of the best things that Steve makes.

It has a mixture of grain and roasted maltiness. There is a hint of ripe fruitiness as well. The taste is sublime with an very heavy flavor of roasted malted, grain, and that elusive undercurrent of some kind of fruit. There is also a hint of dark chocolate although there is no chocolate in the brew.

The beer is heavy and very creamy in the mouth. I never start with the oatmeal stout when I come here, because I know that I won't taste anything else. It is that good.

Serving type: nitro-tap

brewpub draft, on nitro

a: pint glass serving, deep brown in color, appearing black in the dim old basement pub light, with a full head of mocha colored nitro carbonation, retains a full layer with nice lace

s: nose of bittersweet chocolate and smooth deep roasted barley, cream and coffee, earthy hops and a mineral note, quite nice

m: medium-full body with a typically rich, creamy nitro mouthfeel and delicate carbonation

t: opens on the palate with a blend of bittersweet chocolate and deep roasted barley, some dark toffee sugars, coffee and cream, nice mineral touch with an earthy hop profile, mildly bitter with a lingering finish

o: a great oatmeal stout, lots of character in a drinkable, attractive package

Serving type: nitro-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

I had this at the Brew Pub. Served in a sample glass.

Appearance: The beer pours almost black with a layer of thick off white head. The head fades to a thick ring around the pour.

Smell: Smoke and some roast with a dark fruit note. I was surprised to find not much sweetness at all in this beer.

Taste: Just as the smell lead me to believe, there is hardly any sweet component to this beer. Tons of roasted malt and smoke. I also got some dark fruit and a burnt malt flavor. The finish reminds me of a camp fire.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is a bit thin with tingly carbonation and a very dry finish.

Overall: There is a ton of burnt malt here, really roasty. I don't think I need more in the future, but It was still pretty good.

Serving type: on-tap

This beer poured out as a nice looking black color with a light brown head on top. It's creamy looking, it's got a light lacing and strong retention. The smell of the beer is roasted, it's a little sweet smelling too. Good malt profile on the nose not much hops. The taste is also roasted, some sweetness to it with a subtle bitter chocolate flavor in there too. The mouthfeel was creamy and smooth. Very drinkable beer. Overall it was really good.
