12 ounce bottle into a shaker pint glass. Date stamped was 12/18/2018. Pours jet black. Faint bready aroma that was barely noticable. Thick head of foam, great retention. Decent lacing. Taste was smooth & creamy. No bitterness at all. Crisp and not watery by any means. Overall Stockyards Oatmeal Stout is a well crafted and tasty beer. Much better than Guinness and much cheaper too. I paid $7.00 for a six-pack. This was my second experience with Trader Joe brewed beer. The first being Jumping Cow ale. I would give Stockyard Oatmeal Stout an A.

Really great little dark stout. Available at Trader Joe's for $5.99 in California. Very dark, smoky, flavors with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, espresso, malt, and toasted oats. Not one to be missed for this bargain price.

I don’t drink many stouts. This one looks and smells good. It has a lot of flavor, but it doesn’t appeal to me very much. It’s not bad. But given a choice, I’d pick something else.

Brewed by JosephsBrau in San Jose, marked best by 12/30/17. Pours black with a finger of tan head. Smells of caramel malts. Slightly syrupy feel with good carbonation. Tastes of chocolate, malt, and finishes with a touch of bitterness. A good oatmeal stout and great value at $6/6-pack.

Doesn't deserve to call itself a stout. Has the consistency of seltzer water.

Pours almost pitch black with a tan, foamy head. This beer smells like damp bark and dark cherries, a sweet richness that is matched with a taste of deep pomegranate, dark chocolate, and maybe a little whiskey. Surprisingly good for a budget grocery store brand beer.
