look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

A: Dark brown to black. Pours with a large foamy head. The bubbles are initially all different sizes - which I am not a fan of. It settles to a 1 finger cap of light tan foamy head. There is lots of lacing left on the glass.

S: Slight chocolate and burnt wood smells come through.

T: Burn wood up front. Slightly bitter profile. After taste is similar but slightly off and metallic.

M: Very thin. No chewiness that I like in a stout. Just thin like water - no bite or creaminess at all.

O: This seems like a miss. The flavor is off and the mouthfeel is not what I'd expect on an Oatmeal Stout.

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass

A-one finger of fine, tab bubbles when poured hard. Deep black in color.

S-Lots of chocolate, coffee.

T-Coffee, metallic, with a drier, more earthy/herbal finish.

M-A little light for the style, lingers nicely but not as full as I'd like. Low carbonation.

O-Nothing offensive about this one. Easy drinker, but missing some of the body and bigger, roasty flavors I might expect.
