Style: Oatmeal Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Can you escape the pull of our Collapsar Oatmeal Stout? Coffee-like roasted flavors are smoothed by the addition of oatmeal. Like our Irish brethren, we infuse our stout with nitrogen gas for a creamy head that “collapses” when poured. Brewed with American, Canadian and English grown barley and American hops.

Had this on cask several years ago; from my notes:

Black liquid, light at edges.

Nice off-white head; almost no lacing.

Slight chocolate, heavy raw oat nose.

Thin mouthfeel.

Hint of chocolate here, but mostly a watery stout. Not impressive; far from offensive.

On tap at the brewery.

Dark chocolate black with brown edges, a 2 finger head, creamy and nitro looking.

Thorough agitation only yields faint roast barley and dark chocolate malts. Maybe a hint of dry oats.

Bitter chocolates meet small spurts of lactose and dry roast barley. A light oat/nuttiness on the finish.

Feel is the best part coming forward with capable creaminess, a wet palate, and closing up with a light dry roastiness.

Overall, a very sub par stout in any instance. Nothing really stands out here. Drinkable, yes, but if I brewed it myself I'd be disappointed.

I was excited to try this, but boy was I let down. Expected more flavor on the back end, but it was just too sweet for me from the oatmeal.

Not my favorite.
