Oatmeal StoutOatmeal Stout
Notes: It's a bold, smooth-bodied concoction that oozes dark-roasted coffee aromas and flavors of espresso and semi-sweet chocolate. We round out these heady pleasures with a dose of flaked oatmeal for a creamy body and a semi-dry finish. Unforgettable.

L: Pours vantablack in color with a bitchintwo finger espresso head that lingers.
S: Smells rich of roasted malts upfront. some dark chocolate & coffee notes as well.
T: Taste pretty much follows the nose, as expected. This stout has a perfect ratio of roasted malt sweetness to bitterness. But, it is lacking a depth in flavor structure: nothing stands out.
F: Medium-bodied with a thin feel to it.

Looks good. Low, tan head that persists reluctantly.
Smells okay - roasty and a little sweet. Stout-like but underachieves.
Flavor is barely stoutish - more on the dry stout side than sweet, light body and just a touch of oat creaminess.
Most of the bittering seems to come from boil hops. No real meshing of dark malts and hops in the middle.
But the finish is long, mild roasted and black malt flavors with a warm hop smolder.
Not a bad session Oat Stout, just a but thin and timid.

Not a bad oatmeal stout, lots of burnt roasted malts some sweet chocolate malts and a bitter dry finish. Very straight forward low abv stout. It’s a fairly enjoyable beer, but the finish is a bit off. It’s kind metallic or charcoally.

Pours deep brown with a 1/2 inch tan head. Minimal lacing.

Aroma of coffee, roast malts.

Taste is robust. Roasted malts, chocolate, strong burnt coffee. A bit astringent.

Medium bodied, light carbonation. Creamy but, not the usual oiliness of an oatmeal stout. Semi-dry finish.

Not the best of the oatmeal stouts I've had but, it's ok.

12oz bottle. Label is stamped with best by date of '041320'. Label is marked 5% ABV.
Deep brown colored body, with ruby red highlights. One fat finger of beige colored head. Leaves behind a webbing of lacing.
Aroma of roasted malts, which express coffee and dark chocolate. Has a little char, and some evidence of oats.
Taste is espresso coffee and dark chocolate from the roasted malts. The oats influence the flavor to be a little sweet, and keep the bitterness to a minor level. The espresso coffee appears to be the main flavor in the after taste.
Medium plus mouth feel, with a creamy, smooth texture. Good carbonation.
One must like dark roasted coffee to be a fan, but the beer is not overly bitter. Admirable balance with the malts and the oats.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Pours a dark, black color with a light tan head. SRM of 23-24. (3.75)

Aroma: Strong aromas of rich chocolate. Some chocolate mocha and cream. Hints of coffee. The chocolate is rich. Not bitter, nor milky. (3.75)

Flavor: More coffee on the tongue. Expanding on the roasty chocolate, there is more of a coffee and roasty bitterness. Leans more mocha and espresso. A smokiness I'm detecting. Finishes sort of ?sour/flat with a coffee/milk astringency. (3.50)

Feel: Medium body. Poor carbonation. Finishes with a slight sour coffee astringency on the palate. (3.25)

Overall: This one was not quite up my alley. Didn't strike me as milky enough. Has a sort of bitter coffee sourness on the back-end and drank flat. Not a bad beer though, but not what I would reach at for an oatmeal stout. (Final Rating: 3.50)

Unknown vintage; drank 10/16/15 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque brown appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice tan head; strong lace.

Creamed coffee, raspberry & fresh earth notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Fresh earth, raw oats & creamed coffee flavors up front; mild chalk & faint raspberry notes on the finish.

Substantial flavor but not too bold; I guess that is what the style calls for. Above average.

The dark brown beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 1 1/4” tan head that recedes slowly but visibly while a complex web of foam and lacing on the sides of the glass. Sipping creates lots of small patches and slender legs of lacing on the sides of the glass.

The aromas include some chocolate, some bready dark roasted malt and a bit of coffee.

The flavors are much as expected from the nose with the semi-sweet chocolate is more forward than the coffee and the dark roasted malt.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied and fairly smooth with moderate carbonation. The finish begins as the sweetness and coffee fade to leave the chocolate and the dark roasted bitterness to fade and close out the long dry ending.

Overall this is a solid workman like Oatmeal Stout. A drinkable and enjoyable beer that I’d be willing to have again if offered, but wouldn’t go out of my way to find more.

On tap. Pours an opaque black with a finger of white head. Faint roasted malt smell. Smooth, creamy feel. Mellow, dark chocolate and roasted malt taste. Don't detect much oat flavor. Nicely balanced, easy to drink.

Tried this originally at a beer tasting, had it at a summer picnic and finally bought some. Very smooth, good tasting and has a very good feel on the palate. Paired tonight at dinner with Chicken Bruchetta, complimented the dinner very well. Will definitely buy again.

This beer is beautiful when first poured. Though the head is more bubbly than foamy, the beer itself is a completely opaque dark coffee color. It doesn't smell great, a little bit chemical. However, it tastes quite nice. It's a very balanced stout. Not too much coffee, not too much sweetness, not too much malt. Very tasty, though unremarkable. My first few sips were some of the smoothest I've ever had in a beer. Was almost like whole chocolate milk in terms of texture. I quite enjoyed it.

Pours clear with a soft glow from a ruby gem amidst black walnut. Soft creamy head of mocha colored foam that fell slowly and left clinging lace. Dark brown. Earthy roasty nose. The sweet scent of oats and cocoa. Taste is toasty , bitter and lightly creamy. Smooth medium carbonation. Cool firm bitterness from hops. Their spice mingles with the sweetness of the oats. Cereal grain, nuts, a few spicy hops, bitter coffee.
