Very, very dark brown... black! Opaque except for minimal glints of brown along the upper and lower edges of the glass. The tiny bubbled and creamy deep tan head holds OK but drops to a thin surface covering and standard collar. A swirl of the glass will bring it back up; only to see it thin again. However, there is some nice spotty lacing. The aroma is quite roasty and somewhat caramelish with some minor hoppiness in the background. The body is medium and quite creamy with a fine and gentle carbonation. The flavor starts with an underlying fruitiness and a rich malt that includes notes of caramel and baker's chocolate. The fruitiness becomes a little sharper as it crosses the palate, but some lightly cocao-ish notes also appear. It finishes semi-dry at first with some bittersweet chocolate character before a coffee-like roastiness, some light acidity, and a lingering gentle bitterness appear to dry things out. Fairly unique. Well balanced. Worth trying.

Jet Black with a Chocolate Brown head. Awesome chocolately aroma with a touch of roastiness. Rich chocolate-like taste and overall Rich, Robust, and Creamy. Full bodied (leaning towards the medium side) with an oily texture.

A great Oatmeal Stout and it certainly does not seem like you are drinking a 7%-er !

Pours black with a huge, billowy head that slowly fades with moderate lace.Slight aroma of chocolate and coffee, with a slight smoke smell. Slightly noticable smoke in the taste. Lingering finish with a slight hop character. A good Stout, that got better as it warmed.

The pour as dark as a moonless night, the head chocolate brown, but dissiapates in the blink of an eye, the lace chumpy. Nose is sweet, light chocolate and coffee tones, earthy hints also noticed. Front is sweetly malt, the top is midlin, the finish is minimally carbonated, peacefully hopped, semi dry, and a quite decent beer. It will never replace Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout in my heart, but quite a nice beer none the less. Ranks #510 on my current 1000 beer master list.

I went to the brewery and had some of the first 2002 batch of oatmeal stout. Wow! This is by far the best offering from Troegs. I am not big into oatmeal stouts but I loved this particular rendition. The nose was quite mellow with a light toasty scent. The head was very thick and dark brown. The beer was a true meal in itself. Very chewy and filling. At 7% it is not a session beer but quite a great beer to warm you up and bring good cheer. Awesome selection!

Hot damn, I am impressed with these guys! This beer is ruby black (with the ruby poking through only in the strongest light). Thick dark tan head, almost brown, which fades to a thin lace. Quite pleasant chocolate and espresso aromas, mild sweetness. Chocolate hits the tongue first, with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Chocolate gives way to lingering burnt coffee bitterness. Hops are in there, too. Perhaps a bit less balanced than, say, Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout, but still, this is one hell of a nice beer.

Pours a dark brown/black color with only the slightest hints of light creeping in around the edge and a nice brown head that fades just a little too fast. Some bitter coffee and faint aromas of sweet chocolate are perceived in the smell. Creamy dark chocolate sweetness is mixed with the a nice bitter coffee flavor right as the beer hits the tongue. The coffe fades away and allows the chocolate to have its way with the beer for the time. All the while the graininess of the oatmeal gives the brew a great creamy and chewy mouthfeel and make this one a very nice oatmeal stout.

Pours a nice dark brown with a nice red tint. The head is fluffy and dark tan in color. The mouth feel is smooth.
On the nose, the aromas consisted cereal grains, oats and slightly acidic. On the palate; grains, oats, slight coffee flavor, nice sweetness, and maybe a touch of caramel. Overall this was a very good oatmeal stout.

Troegs has done it again - these buys know how to brew. This was at first a seasonal beer available only in kegs, but has been bottled for the past 2 or 3 seasons. An exceptional oatmeal stoudt!
