Watery, weak, and black. This is such a disappointing Oatmeal Stout. I guess that is to be expected from a company that mainly produces soft drinks. I would suggest avoiding this soda-beer and grabbing Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout instead. SS perfected the style, and Gray's is like Guinness in comparison. A boring beer that fails to deliver the expectations of its style.

Gray's Oatmeal Stout pours a black color with a large lacing tan head. There is a nice creamy aroma, with lots of roasted malts and a hint of smoke. The taste is creamy, good smokey notes, good sweet lactose flavoring. A bit watery and rough, but flavors are present. Overall its a nice sweeter stout.

Pours very dark brown with a thin wispy head. Minimal vanishing lace.

The smell is of roasted dark malt - some chocolate. There is something chemical-ish I can't quite put my finger on, but it is mild.

The taste is of roasted cocoa powder with some dark fruit and a metallic-like finish.

It is watery thin, though some roast lingers a bit.

A mediocre stout, IMO. Not sure if metallic notes come from burnt malt or poorly used hops. It's drinkable enough, but lacks the rich, silky malt character associated with the style. Could be smoother. But, again, "inoffensive" enough to be drinkable.

Pours a dark black with a little head that fades away to nothing. Chocolaty to the nose with hints of coffee. Tastes like carbonated coffee. It starts off watery and finishes with a thick malty taste. I didn't get the "oatmeal" flavor at all here, which was disappointing. Overall, I was not impressed.
