Oatmeal StoutOatmeal Stout

Brewed by:
Breckenridge Brewery
Colorado, United States

Style: Oatmeal Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.95%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Even with an aggressive pour I couldn't squeeze a half finger head out of this stout. Sits flat in my glass.

S- Am I missing something? A touch of malts and soy sauce?

T- Dark chocolate and expresso. Some smokey character to it.

M- Average. Medium bodied with low carbonation.

O- Maybe I was expecting this to be a bit better coming from Breckenridge as they make decent beer, but this is an average stout. Nothing more, nothing less.

Breceknridge Brewery... I gave this one a try after I enjoyed a couple of agave wheats at a friend's party. Unique taste so I wanted to see how their oatmeal stout came up.

Appearance - Just what I want to see in a stout. A gorgeous deep brown almost black appearance with goldish tones

Smell - I was hoping for a bit more here, manly just hops smell with not a lot else. Still a good smell, but I wanted a difference from the normal stouts.

Taste - I really enjoyed this beer on taste. It has a great normal stout that is more mellow and not nearly as sharp as the rest. The oatmeal taste comes right in after, almost like there's some Quaker oats sitting at the bottom.

Mouthfeel - Not a lot of carbonation, but this beer definately doesn't need it. It matches the flavor well, but a little bit of head isn't a bad thing...

Overall - This is a nice sipping beer when your watching tv or playing some xbox. Im not sure what you could match it with, but it is great on its own.

A - Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Very small amount of light brown head. Completely black and opaque.

S - Dark malts, cocoa

T - Comes on light and finishes strong. Malts chocolate and oats at first and moves to some hop and coffee notes. A little alcohol at the end.

M - Full bodied, more carbonation than i expected or desired.

O - A nice stout. Good blend of chocolate and coffee without being too much.
