A - Pours a very dark brown/black with foamy 1" white head which dissipates fairly quickly to a thin layer.

S - Roasted malts, chocolate, hint of minerals

T - Coffee, roasted grains, chocolate, barley. Well balanced flavor.

M - Smooth, but a bit lighter and not as creamy as I would expect from the oatmeal.

D - A good, drinkable, brew that I'd come back to again.

Picked up a single of this last time I went through Duluth

A: Wow, probably the darkest beer I've ever had-completely ink black, no light sneaking through this one, tawny head.

S: Sweet oats and roasted malts

T: Definately one of the more interesting oatmeal stouts out there-I can actually taste the oatmeal. Starts off with a coffee roasted bitterness that gives way to sharp oats flavors

M: Starts off very sharp due to bitterness then becomes creamy and palate coating.

D: Very interesting brew, I could definately down a few of these.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured into a mug, very dark brown/black with a tan head.

S: Smells of deep roasted coffee, maybe some chocolate too, also a warming aroma.

T: Starts off with a slightly smooth silky-ness then goes right into some roasted coffee and dark chocolate along with some roasted malts. Finishes a little bitter, not a lot, just enough to compliment the roasted malts.

M: Medium bodied, not as heavy as most stouts tend to be, with a little smoothness to it.

D: Very drinkable, with the body being a little thinner than most stouts and the flavors being non-offensive but still fairly robust, it makes drinking many of these very easy to do, sometimes unintentionally so. I drink this quite often, it is a favorite go-to beer of mine.

Light slightly roast malt aroma. Very fizzy, extremely big head that settles so slow that it made it difficult to pour much in order to drink. Dark brown to black with red hues. Clear. Straight stout malt flavor with softening qualities of the oats. Mildly dry and same for length of finish. Fullness from carbonation, otherwise medium Fairly straight oatmeal stout, not very complex but enjoyable in a simple way.

Dark, creamy pour. A real smoothie with pronounced chocolate smell and chocolate/toffee taste. Stays in the mouth long after the swallow. Needs a touch more roastedness in the malt department for me, but a nice Oatmeal nevertheless.

This is basically a solid oatmeal stout. It looks great, a deep silky color without much fading around the edges, nice brown frothy head. The smell and taste were a bit on the roasted/bitter side for an oatmeal stout, but not off-putting, kind of added to the charm. this definitely had some good sweet oat flavor too it though, nothing outstanding but quite good. I was suprised at the lack of creaminess in the mouthfeel, but it still went down well. Not something for all night, but pretty good for one or two.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Completely opaque black, lets no light through. Head is a very light brown that settles at a film. Lacing is average.

S - Smells a lot like chocolate ice cream with some more earthy tones. Dark powdered cocoa and smokier malts as well.

T - Strong malts flavor, more smoky than roasty and slightly bitter. A slight hop bitterness finishes it off.

M - Very creamy, consistency is more on the thin side but still good for the style.

D - Although I wish the taste was more like the smell it's still pretty good overall.

I picked up a six pack while visiting some from friends and the UMD in Duluth. This poured a very balanced dark brownish black color with a off white small head. Smells like dark roasted coffee along with dark malts and maybe some oaty scents.The taste was nice a smooth and very easily drinkable. Flavors of chocolate, dark coffee, dark malt sweetness, smoky flavors, and the oats give this beer some nice flavor and texture. Overall a very enjoyable and drinkable beer that I enjoy usually drinking on cold minnesota nights.

This stout pours an opaque black with a thin tan head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is highly roasted, a little charcoal and low sweetness. The flavor is moderately roasted with low residual sweetness and low bitterness. The mouthfeel is extremely smooth and the finish is wonderful. The carbonation is medium-low and mouth is just a bit thin. Overall this is a nicely done Oatmeal Stout, the body could be boosted a little, but still worth buying.

Pours out to a nice, jet black in the glass with an average size head. The aroma hits you right away with its roasted malt goodnes. The taste is very good, albeit a tad thin, but lends to its outstanding drinkability. Roasted malt and cocoa tastes shine through.

Thanks tor fantome for the hookup.

I was lamenting the lack of local stouts when I realized that I hadn't given this Duluth brewed beer (or indeed the whole brewery) a fair shake. This is a beer that gets high marks from me. The head is a massive chocolate creame colored pillowy cumulonimbus cloud. I had difficulty fitting the 12 oz bottle into a 16 oz glass (and I'll be damned if I didn't pour sloooowly). Color is deep black which allows no light to pass through. The haed somewhat masks the aroma for me but I do detect some roasted malt. A little bit of spice on the flavor, quite a bit of coffeish notes, and a somewhat sweet-ish finish. There is a certain bite in the mouthfeel from the carbonation. Very drinkable, I found myself enjoying the beer more as I finished the 6 pack. I love when that happens. I now realize that we do have a great stout brewed in our fine state, and I beleive I need to pay a little more attention to our fine brewers to the north.
