I enjoyed this on Nitro at Triumph New Hope. Served in a standard pint.

The color is deep brown with caramel brown highlights and a thin tan cap. The bead is ultra fine and clarity is translucent. The smell is great - just like the name indicates it smells like an oatmeal cookie. Nice toasted oatmeal with a lot of cinnamon and slight molasses tinge in the nose. The feel is good with a more malty and sweet feel but the balance is nice with some roasted graininess and slight yeast and molasses tang.

This is a well brewed beer, it has a nice roasted malt base but not overboard to the point where the oatmeal, vanilla and cinnamon flavors are muted. The cinnamon is the strongest flavor with some molasses which gives a sweet almost worty flavor with a mild vanilla accent which makes for a woody and slightly spiced dominance. This wood probably be something I would drink more of in Autumn since the spice and molasses seem to fit that, it has some similarities to a pumpkin ale with the malty spiced profile, but the darker malts support the stout label.

Poured a deep black hue with a two finger creamy tan head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured lactose, dry coffee and brown sugar.

The taste was complex and really did mimic an oatmeal cookie. Soft milk chocolate, cafe au lait and brown sugar rounded out the flavor. Some cinammon as well.

The mouthfeel was full and creamy on nitro. Dry finish.

Overall a tasty treat.

Triumph- Oatmeal Cookie Stout

A- Dark black with a a thick creamy white head. Solid lacing down the glass.

T- Big cinnimon with a nice eggnog vanilla and nutmeg. Light touches of chocolate and coffee. A nice blend between a tiramisu and eggnog.

Overall- Delicious holiday beer! Could be a little sweet or cloying but tasty and enjoyable.

A - Black bodied, no light showing through and a creamy beige stout head.

S - Very roasty, toasty and slightly smokey. Faint wood smoke and bold, roasted bitter malts.

T - A big mouthful of spices up front. Nutmeg, all spice and other fall cookie/cake spices. Roasty, chewy, malt and grain with a touch of bitter coffee. Dry malts and sweet lactose sweetening the sip.

M - Medium bodied, slick in the beginning and drying towards the end.

O - Awesome twst to a stout here. Not too weird or sweet, but certainly giving that cookie flavor while keeping within a proper stout balance.

I had this on tap in a pint glass.

The oatmeal really comes off the top of the glass. I also get raisins from the aroma.

It is a really nice, dark color with a white foam.

The nae is a great descriptor. It is a nice cross between a stout and a cookie. The lactose made for some really good creaminess in the mouthfeel.

This is almost like a cross between an oatmeal and a milk stout.

My only real problem is that it was offered in the summer. It was weird even inside an air-conditioned room.

I just found my notes from this in January when I went. I ordered a sampler and this was the heavy favorite so I got a glass. Poured into a pint glass. Was jet black with a nice thick coffee colored heading.Leaves rings all the way to the end. Smells of Cinnamon are immediate followed by vanilla,chocolate and a something I couldn't put my finger on but the last reviewer said nutmeg and now that I think about it. It would have to be that. Taste is very thick and creamy a nice mixture of Cinnamon,vanilla,and chocolate. I was absolutely in aah of this brew I could see the Triumph brewing company bottling this and selling it world wide it should be anyway.A must try.

A: Pours a thick, rich, syrupy coal color that produces a dark brown color head that retains pretty well and leaves minimal lacing along the glass.

S: Sweet lactose, chocolate, a touch of vanilla that is barely noticeable, and some delicious spices! Cinnamon and nutmeg really seal the deal.

T: Simply awesome! I wish I could have filled a growler or purchased a bottle of this stuff. Very unique and creative, and if you are in the area I URGE you to go try this. It literally tasted like an oatmeal cookie! Chocolaty, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon really come together.

MF/D: Nice carbonation via nitrogen, smooth and rich, but medium-full bodied, not quite full. Exceptionally drinkable! One of the best I've had

My theory behind this amazing flavor combination has everything to do with the brewmaster who came down to talk to me and my dad. Apparently he went to culinary school, which would explain his knack for nailing imitation flavors on the head, such as this oatmeal cookie

Its always nice when a beer claims to have a flavor and follows through without any artificial aspects.. This beer seriously tastes just like an oatmeal cookie, in a very organic way. The molasses and cinnamon are pretty amazing in the flavor. It pours a lovely dark black with creamy head which lingers the entire drink. The mouth is very smooth with almost no carbonation. Very full-bodied without feeling too heavy or weighing you down. I could see this being quite sessionable for a stout. The creamy, nitrogenated body is very silky and compliments the flavor very much. All around a must try.

a-black. has a dark tan thick head.
s-smell sweet molasses. can definitely smell the malt.
t-a sweet spiciness with more molasses that gives way to malt then finishes with a nice vanilla-ish flavor.
m-wonderful. has a nice velvety feel. has little carbonation that helps contribute to the overall perfect stout feel.
o-this is a great stout. although the name makes you think it will be overbearingly sweet, its not. there is a perfect blend of roasted barley and other flavors that makes it what it is, a nearly perfect stout.
