Poored for stubby bottle black and thick looking. Smells like a standard stout. Taste kinda dark chockolaty kinda almost an odd fruity. Feel is a little thiner than I was hoping for. Could see drinking this again but nothing worth going out of my way for.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours black with a 1” foamy head the color of a cocoa powder brown which dissipated quickly, leaving a ring of tiny bubbles.

Smell: Lightly roasted, reminiscent of a dark roast coffee. I also can faintly pick up the smell of oats/grain.

Taste: The taste leaves the palate wanting for the smell, as the dark coffee is missing and more of sweet nutty notes come through followed by a mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light (almost to the extent of being watery) and smooth with medium carbonation. The carbonation lingers, leaving a effervescence feel on the palate. This beer has a slightly bitter finish.

Overall: The nostalgia of La Crosse and good times at the Pearl Street Brewery make up for what this beer was lacking. However, with that factored out, this oatmeal stout’s appearance and smell cannot make up for the taste and watery mouthfeel. I may pick up this one again in the future, but for now there are many more beers to review and my Pearl Street Brewery reminiscing is complete.

Reviewed from notes.

Poured out the typical black color with a tan foamy two finger head that lasts for only about two minutes and doesn't really leave behind much by the way of lacing. The body was very watery and thin for a stout, making me wonder just how much oats were actually used in this beer.

Smells of faint bitter chocolate and some coffee, but tastes very extract-forward and strangely sour in the finish. Not a big fan of this one.

This poured out with a deep black color with a brown fizzy head on top. No retention or lacing at all here. The smell of the beer is roasted, maybe a little bit of a smokiness in there too. The taste of the beer is roasted also but really not good right out of the fridge. I gave it time to warm up and it got a little better but still not that impressive. Very one dimensional brew. The mouthfeel is thin and not really thick like an Oatmeal Stout should be. Overall it's not that great sadly. I would still look into other brews from this brewery but not this one.

12oz bottle brought back from WI recently. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a deep pitch black. Thin beige head on top. The nose is really rich and bursting with sweet chocolate notes, syrup, a little booze. Really nice aroma. The mouth is moderately full. Carbonation is decent. It's not as thin as others have noted. The edges could be smoothed out a bit, as there is a bit of a bite of carb at the back end. This is a roasted malt-forward beer for sure. A bit of char in the mouth, some smoke, and mild semi-sweet cocoa. This was a decent drink, and one I would revisit.

I was surprised to see such low ratings from all the recent reviews, which makes me wonder if there's a bit of "follow-the-crowd" mentality. Is this the best Oatmeal Stout out there? By no means. But nor do I think it deserves the low ratings across the board. Good beer. Try it for yourself.

On-tap at Del's Bar.

Served to the very top of a pint glass with zero head. Solid black, but thin looking.

Smells roasty with some coffee malt notes.

The taste is so watered down. The main flavor component is of musty old grains. Really hard to drink this.

This has to be the furthest thing from an oatmeal stout. So watery and thin, I think they forgot to put the oats in.

I dare call this a beer that falls into either the oatmeal or stout categories. I had about three sips and set the rest down. I recommend staying away from this beer unless you try it at the brewery. The other beers at the brewery seem to be good, so maybe it's the bar to blame?
