On tap at Tomlinson Tap Room. Pours deep brown, but not quite opaque. Small beige head fading into a ring leaving decent lacing.

Smells of roasted malt with a little coffee.

Roasted malts, chocolate, oatmeal and a little espresso. The espresso comes out a bit more as it nears room temperature, but I'd still prefer a bit more.

Mouthfeel is solid. Oats provide a nice creaminess with lower carbonation levels. Best part of the beer.

I enjoyed this one. A little more espresso/coffee flavor would definitely round this up for me. It was nice, but would've been better with some added oomph.

I really enjoy oatmeal stouts so I had to give this People's Brew-Co spin on it a try.

A - Deep brown almost black color kind-of cloudy. Pours thick with a fluffy cream head with extra strong lacing.

S - Strong stout smell with roasted, malt, and oatmeal all culminating in the glass.

T - Good flavor with a robust character. Malty, roasty, chocolaty, and some toffee/caramel taste. Light bitterness that adds balance and overall not too skewed with any attribute.

M - Robust mouth-feel with lighter carbonation. Very silky feel and a lingering sweetness that makes it a great beer but not quite as good as Samuel Smith.

Overall, this oatmeal stout is the delicious and fits in this style. It isn't as heavy as a RIS and it is more drinkable but still full of sustenance. It has everything for the dark beer drinker. It's also a nice change of pace if you are used to drinking dry stouts like Guinness because of the improved flavor and body. I would recommend this to anyone that likes darker beer.

REGULAR, non-nitrogen pour into an imperial pint glass. Deep ruby colored, bordering on black, with a nice large white head.

Smells like medium-dry stout. Not all that much grain roastiness but a tiny kiss of hops. Tastes very much the same: pretty tame for an oatmeal, but nice and smooth with some solid coffee complexities.

This would be a real good entry level stout.

For some reason, the citizens and publicans of Lafayette are enamored with using nitro taps for all their beers. A certain pub, which shall remain nameless, ruined a keg of otherwise perfect Shakespeare stout by subjecting it to that bastard gas. For shame. Anyhow, if you're in town and you want a pint of this, be sure to get it without nitro. That's key. Because it sucks on nitro.
