The Oatmeal Stout was poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass. The pour was just about as perfect as one could hope for showing off the rich mocha to almost black pour coupled with just enough tan head to round out the pint glass perfectly. There was a mild amount of carbonation noted in the pour and the head held true throughout the pint glass.

The nose with Pyramid’s Oatmeal Stout is rather light with hints of roasted malts being matched to a cocoa presence right off the bat. The bready nature of the oatmeal can be picked up once the pour is completed and the nose serves as a subtle invitation to sip the beer. Nothing too over the top in terms of the nose; seems to be pretty spot on.

The taste is what really solidifies this offering as being a solid oatmeal stout out on the market right now. There is a rich and bold flavor to Pyramid’s Oatmeal Stout that some other breweries could only hope to brew so well. The roasted malts and chocolate that was present lightly in the nose really jumps out of the glass during the taste. There is a bit more of a creamy nature to this oatmeal stout than I would have expected but it serves the beer well. The oatmeal used in the brewing process can be tasted and lend to the robust flavor that this beer is able to offer. If you are a stout fan, then this oatmeal stout should win your heart once you give it a taste.

As previously mentioned, there is a bit of a creamy nature to this oatmeal stout that is right up front in the mouthfeel and the entire glass gives off a smooth mouthfeel throughout. The mild amount of carbonation that was evident in the pour holds true in the mouthfeel but is exactly what I would want to see in such an offering.

With an ABV of 7.0%, Pyramid Brewing’s Oatmeal Stout is a good warming beer that is an ideal brew to put in a winter sampler package. That said, with a 7.0% ABV Pyramid does a very nice job in allowing you to pick up more on the taste than the ABV.

3.6/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep brown, nearly black color with a one finger of a cream colored head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a great level of lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is a nice blend of roasted malt, oatmeal, and some sweeter smells of sweet chocolate a bit of caramel. Along with these are some hints of vanilla and a bit of a bready smell, overall giving a nice roasty and sweet stout smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweet chocolate and oat taste with lots of vanilla sweetness. A moderate amount of roastiness is present right from the start which fades a bit as the taste advances. A bit of a coffee flavor comes to the tongue more toward the middle with a little bit of a molasses and light earthy hop flavor comes to the tongue. In the end a nice roasted, and sweet oatmeal stout flavor is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly lower side. Both are rather nice for the roasted and sweet flavors of the beer and make for a very easy drinking but soothing feel.

Overall – A rather enjoyable brew overall. Nice, sweet, raoasty, oats, and smooth flavors with a very easy drinking feel.

2.8/5  rDev -19.5%
look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.25

Poured from a 12oz bottle with "enjoy by 02/03/2013" on the label into a Unibroue goblet that had just before held a Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Oatmeal Stout. Pours dark brown/black with a large light tan head that had remarkably excellent retention.

Aroma: Belgian yeast (?!) and some mild toasted grain aroma.

T: Well, the "Belgian yeast" that seemed to be in the aroma clearly seems to be Brett; and I assume Brett contamination rather than an intentional introduction. Nonetheless, the Brett level is tolerable and the beer is drinkable. Hard to be more positive than that, however.

M: Slightly thin for style, but otherwise very good, smooth feel. Fairly high level of carbonation for style makes this a very lively oatmeal stout.

O: Bad bottle? Properly capped bottle pulled from refrigerated storage only 2 weeks past enjoy by date, so any problems stem from bottling or earlier. Will revisit down the road.

Enjoy by 031414; they get brownie points for an enjoy by date

A: A very dark brown with good clarity. The head is a medium tan with cream bubbles and decent retention.

S: A moderate citrus hops aroma with a bit of dry hopped grassiness over moderate malt sweetness. There is a moderate dark fruit aroma that blends with a some alcohol to give the impression of over ripe plums and figs.

T: This is an American Stout with more fruit than usual and some oatmeal body. There is a moderate hops bitterness with moderate citrus hops flavor. A moderate amount of fruit flavors being plum and dark cherry. The dark malt bring a light cocoa with some coffee. The balance is towards the bitter with not much malt sweetness.

M: Full bodied with moderately-strong carbonation. There is a light slickness on the tongue but nothing like that oily slickness like most.

O: The nose is kind of fruit dominated which continues into the flavor; had they changed the yeast this could have made for a nice Belgian Dark Strong.
