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.

Oatmeal Stout brewed by Breckenridge Brewery, with an ABV of 5.00% This Oatmeal Stout pours out a deep brown color with a nice off white head. The color of this brew, reminds me of cola, not saying that is a bad thing. There is also a nice amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell is rich with roasted grains and malts. You also pick up on a mild sweetness, and mild hop bitterness. There is a lot going on in this brew, so far. Between the look and smell this is one inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is rich and bold with flavors. You first pick up on the sweet, roasted grains and malts. The oatmeal is a nice touch to this Stout. The body of oatmeal Stout is a solid medium. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a super nice balance to it. I like how smooth this brew goes down. This brew would go nice with a dinner. The mouth feel of oatmeal Stout is Sweet, Roasted, Clean, Smooth, and Refreshing. Overall I'm giving this Oatmeal Stout a soild 4 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Breckenridge Brewery, did a real nice job with this brew.

Oatmeal Stout | Breckenridge Brewery. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, the head's three fingers thick and tan, with solid lacing, and a black body.

Not really smelling the oats as I have with stouts of this variety before. Nicely roasted malts nonetheless.

Again, virtually nothing oat-like. Present are dark chocolate, black licorice, and a slight smokiness towards the end.

Medium mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

Overall, I'll choose to rate Oatmeal Stout | Breckenridge Brewery with a 4.25

I tried their vanilla porter last week and it was fantastic. Didn't like this one as much, but still very drinkable and worth a try. Biggest complaint is that it was a bit thin, not too bad but makes it feel a bit watered down.

Taste wise it's not too sweet and not too bitter but lacking any sort of character imo.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip

L: Nearly black pour... 2 fingers of foamy white head leave great lacing.

S: Smells like a stout.. roasted grains and coffee. A bit of char.

T/F: Light for a stout. Decent flavor... roasted grains and sugars. Smooth... likely the oatmeal addition, with good coffee and chickory flavor. Very faint dark chocolate. Good bitterness and not overly sweet which I like. Finish is roast.

O: A solid oatmeal stout. Easy drinking and light... good flavor for the low-ish ABV. I'd have it again.

Dark brown in color. Poured with a creamy beige foam with medium retention. Light roasted malt and medium sweet dark malt and grainy malt aromas. Medium bodied with medium light carbonation and a light creamy feel. Medium light sweet dark and medium roasted malt flavors with medium bitterness that carries through the middle to the end. Finished with lingering dark roasted malt and bitter hoppiness. Aromas were a on the light side. Creamy feel was overwhelmed by tangy hop bitterness. Flavors were also a bit light as the balance was toward the bitter side. Generally lacked malt character for the style.

12oz bottle no date

Dark brown, amber edges. Smell is faint and tainted with rubbing alcohol. Taste is better; dry leaf flavors dominate, coffee, tobacco, slight spice with a faint chocolate malt presence and pleasant hop finish. High amount of carbonation, easy to drink

Tastes more like a porter than a proper oatmeal stout
