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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - It is a dark brown to black in color with a tan head.

Smell - A nice fruity smell from the raisins, with coffee, malts, and oatmeal smell as well.

Taste - It is a nice coffee/chocolate flavor hits the tongue first, followed by the raisins, and ending with the oatmeal and burnt malt bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Nice silky body, with good carbonation.

Overall - It is a pretty good oatmeal stout.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance:
The beer pours a very dark brown that appears to almost be black. The head is a lasting tan that is frothy.

Smell:
Strong oatmeal notes with hints of coffee notes appear in the smell. Some bready malt smell and yeast smell also make an appearance.

Taste:
The stout has a bit of hop bitterness that mixes well with the coffee notes and the oatmeal flavor. The oatmeal is fairly strong and unifies the beer to an extent. Hints of roasted barely add to the complex mix as well. Additionally, a roasted malt flavor makes an appearance as well.

Mouthfeel:
Heavy bodied with biting carbonation. Smooth feel and finish. However, the oatmeal sometimes provides a nice silky feel to the beer after it warms up a little bit.

Overall:
A pretty decent oatmeal stout and probably worth purchasing again.

12 oz bottle , bottled on 15 April, 2013, and served in a snifter at about 55F.

This Oatmeal Stout pours dark mahogany but is clear and the bottle lacks sediment. The small tan head is short-lived and lives scant lacing.

The oatmeal is evident in the aroma, flavor and soft feel. Hints of dried fruits and faint coffee add to the flavor which is, as expected, dominated by roasted grains. No burnt grain. Low hops and carbonation. Full bodied.

Picked up some Missouri beers while in Joplin for a rotation at Freeman Medical Center.
Most weren't that great. We'll see if this was any better.

A - 4.0 - Good color, dark brown/black with a tan head that sticks around and leaves great lacing.

S - 3.0 - Not so great, mostly vinegar, oatmeal, cereal, maybe some rancid coffee/dark malts if you really try to smell them.

T - 2.5 - Again, vinegar and even bandaids are prevalent. Some roasty dark malts. Coffee. By far one of the worst stouts I've had.

M - 3.0 - Medium mouth feel, roasty aftertaste. Alc covered.

O - 3.0 - Yea, it's pretty bad. I hate to say it but this is pretty standard for Missouri beer. Good beer law state, just not good beers.
