Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Oatmeal Stout is a classic British-style stout brewed with flaked oatmeal and roasted barley. Freshly-roasted coffee beans, cocoa and touches of raisin and dried fruit dominate the aroma of this super dark ale. The richness of the grain blend is balanced by the nutty character of the roasted malt, the creaminess from the oatmeal flakes and a dose of hops.

Before the 19th century, all barley was malted over wood-fired kilns and the resulting dark roasted malt defined the browns, porters, and stouts of England. Near the end of the 19th century, brewers had introduced oats for their purported restorative and nourishing characteristics, producing beers such as oatmeal stout and milk stout. By the 1950’s, Oatmeal Stout had nearly trickled out of existence. Following the beer’s literary rebirth in the articles of English beer writer Michael Jackson in the 1970’s, British and American craft brewers are once again promoting the style.

Near pitch black in hue, 1/3 inch dark tan head with intense patching and sticky lacing. Roasted malts, oats and some dark chocolate can be detected on the nose. A massively smooth and slick palate. Dried oats, burnt coffee, hints of chocolate and blended roasted malts to be found in the body. Nearly too easy and smooth, for the style oh-so thirst quenching. Tender hop bitterness and sweet malts coupled with strings of black licorice; oily-slick and lip-smacking good, enough word describers? Well rounded and full of great flavorings. This stuff is world class on cask, liquid gold!

I had a pint of this in the airport at St. Louis. A very pleasent Oatmeal. This is a not an average brew and has to be the best Oatmeal Stout I've ever tasted. I wanted another but the plane was leaving in around an hour and I wanted to be prepared for my usual strip searching (I don't know why but I ALWAYS get searched).

Jet black with an inch and a half of head on it. Smelled of malt and chocolate. Smooth and creamy the first hit and a malty finish to it slightly bitter but nothing dramatic. This is how I likes me stout! I can't wait to try it in the Tap Room as suggested. Definetly will drink (this and other beers...) again next time I'm in St. Louis. Oh yeah.

Serving type: on-tap

Missouri borders my state...and I can't find this stuff anywhere around home. I'm surprised ther aren't more "wants" for this beer with thier limited disribution area.

As a truck driver, I loaded pallets at the brewery, and that is the only reason I even know of this beer.

Dock workers gave me a sixer to take along and sample when I got off-duty.

Drank straight from the bottle, but saw it poured in a glass in the restaurant, and it was nice and dark with an awsome deep baige two and a half / three finger head (out of a tap).

The smell for me, was good and strong. I caught a slight wiff of everything in the beer besides the alcohol.

The taste knocked me off my feet. Creamy, dark AND dark and creamy...everything I love about an oatmeal stout.

The mouthfeel went hand in hand with the taste. Thick and creamy.

The drinkability was as expected for a thick dark beer; no gas to fill you up, and lingering goodness to keep you asking for another.

Love it!

"Hey Schlafly...can we get a little distrabution in north-east Iowa please"!?!
