That's What I'm Talkin' Bout Rolled Oat Stout pours a black color with a veyr small head. There is a big roasted aroma, hints of smoke, very malty. The taste is much the same, big roasted flavors, smoke, and a heavy malt backbone. A little flat, but good flavors. Overall its a very nice stout, no frills.

As a Rolled-Oats Stout goes this one has good texture. Most oat stouts come out with good flavor but last the required texture (thickness) which this beer gets right on the money.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 2.75

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.
