Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Poured into a shaker pint glass. Pours a deep, rich black coffee color. A thick, dark, cream colored sea foam chunky head sits on top. Awesome, sticky lacing. Smells of slightly roasted malts, semi-sweet chocolate, and a hint of oatmeal. The taste is really well-balanced. It's not too bitter, not too smokey. Hints of chocolate and roasted malts abound here. The mouthfeel is nearly perfect as it's not too sticky or rich, and not watery at all.

Overall, this is my favourite oatmeal stout, hands down. This beer really has everything I ask for: a great appearance, great taste, easy to drink, and low ABV. This beer is a staple in my fridge.

A: completely opaque black with a darker tan head that actually got lighter in color as the beer sat. The head stuck around through the drink and there was some decent lacing

S: not at all what I was expecting. This has a great nose as coffee does not overpower which is sometimes common with stouts. Rather there is a malty sweetness and an earthy, floral hop aroma. This smells awesome.

T: wow, starts with a malty sweetness that is quickly cut by the hoppy bitterness. This fades to a nutty biscuit flavor in the middle and the coffee notes don't come in till late. It ends with a subtly sweetness that is fruity in character. No real oatmeal character, that just helps to polish it all together.

M: very smooth and full-bodied. The reason oatmeal stouts are my favorite stouts is because the mouthfeel that the oats impart. It is thick and chewy but slick at the same time. This is great

D: Ill have another please. As far as oatmeal stouts goes... this is up there, way up there!

12 oz. bottle,

A: Pours black with a finger of tan head. Some lace.

S: What strikes me immediately is the amount of smoke, it's like somebody gave me a glass of Alaskan Smoked Porter. With that there's also a real inviting true caramel aspect, making for a great scent. Little coffee in there too.

T: Heavy dark chocolate, bit of creamed coffee. The chocolate is where it's at. Slightly sweet, any fan of real dark chocolate will love this.

M: Smooth, medium-bodied, creamy. Pretty easy drinking.

D: This is chocolate city here. Like a dark chocolate bar transformed into a delicious beer. First Breckenridge made me a fan with their Vanilla Porter, now they've outdone themselves with this fantastic Oatmeal Stout. Stick with the dark dark beers with these guys. Super beer, it'll be a shame when my lone bottle of this is gone.

Upon opening some smoke lingers at the top of the bottle. Upon pouring, there is a nice 1 and a half finger creamy tan head that is fluffy. It retains really well and laces nicely. The body is dark brown. Looks pretty nice.

It smells like a nice malty roasted intertwining of tones. It smells sweet. I can smell some coffee here too.

This is a very very very pleasing beer to drink. It has a bitter front to it that is very very enjoyable for me. What I want in a beer is a robust strong character and this one has it. It does have some sweet roasty malty tone flavors that come through with the coffee bitterness as it goes down the palate. As Im writing, I can see the lacing that is coming through really nicely. The coffee bitterness along with the other flavors that come through make this a great great beer to drink if you like stouts especially oatmeal stouts.

The mouthfeel is really good because its not too carbonated and it works well with the taste.

Overall, I have found another beer I really enjoy. I will definitely have this again. It reminds me of Samuel Smith oatmeal stout. If you like porters or stouts this will trip your trigger.

Had on nitro-tap at the brewery.

On a recent visit I made the time to visit the brewery and I'm glad I did. I sampled several beers but the stout stood out. I had a pint from the nitro tap and wow was it good!

Very good beer, smooth on taste, very easy to drink and went well with my ribs. The nitro tap also made for a great show inside my glass. The staff at the bar (Stewart) was amazing, very friendly and I had a ball.

Breckenridge brewery are masters at dark beers.This oatmeal stout needs to be served 55 degrees to enjoy the full potential,just like cheese.I first tried it cold from the fridge and the taste was minimal until it warmed up.Very drinkable and sophisticated.Try there other dark beers,you can't go wrong.
