Very dark in color and with a creamy head of tan colored foam, Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout has a fragrant nose that is roasty with notes of chocolate, earthy scents, and a touch of alcohol. The beer holds its foam very well and generous lacing coats your glass as you drink.
Moving to the taste, this oatmeal stout offers flavors of chocolate/cocoa, roasted malt, caramel, toffee, and a touch of molasses. There is some coffee character too, although not as much as I expected, and the beer has a creamy texture common to the style.
I love a good oatmeal stout, but this offering from Breckenridge doesn’t quite measure up to some of the finest in its class. It isn’t a bad beer by any means, but the body is a little thinner than I prefer and it doesn’t have quite the sweet, dessert- like quality I have grown to love and expect in my oatmeal stout.
Still, all things considered, this is still a good enough beer to recommend a try. Keep your expectations at a moderate level and you should like it just fine.
