I've shyed away from my old friend, Oatmeal Stout, to the allure of hop-bombs for quite some time, but now as the winter approaches, I thought I'd revisit an old friend. Sir Duluth pours jet black with ruby tones in the light. The head is reasonable, off-white and disappears quickly. No matter. Aroma is roasty with notes of coffee, caramel and some of those sweet treats my grandpa always had around (probably more coffee/caramel). Flavor is roasty, slightly bitter and earthy. The oats come through, though don't kick you in the teeth with their... uh... oatiness?! This beer feels smooth on the tongue, though not as silky as some oatmeal stouts. Is that bad? Nah. The flavor and feel of the beer hang on the tongue for a while. Enjoyable, drinkable. Nice.

Pitch black body crowned with a light brown, thick, and porous head. Plenty of carbonation racing to the top while sediment slowly drifts towards the bottom.
To my surprise, it smells of fresh oatmeal! Nice roasted coffee notes and trace vanilla will keep you interested
A pleasant amount of vanilla hits the taste buds first, followed by bitter chocolate and coffee flavors. Definitely got better as it warmed closer to room temperature.
This is one velvety smooth oatmeal stout! Medium bodied and light on carbonation. Finish is a tad on the dry side with a very subtle peat character.
This is possibly the best oatmeal stout I've had to date. Complex and easy to drink - the combination makes for one hell of a beer!
