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.

Pours a dark black with a thin head into my glass. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.

Sweet with a dollop of cream and roasted malt. I like the creaminess in the nose.

Creamy with good coffee overtones. Dark fruit and cocoa are there, if not prominent.

Lingering coffee and cream at the back of the throat round out the mouthfeel.

A very nice oatmeal stout. It's hard to find one that I don't like and the ABV is where it should be for this style.

Very dark, coffee black in color. A small light tan sea foam head sits on top and lasts for a good long while. Decent amount of lacing. Definite notes of hearty oatmeal overtop a solid background of dark roasted malts. Slight amount of coffee and chocolate, making for a mocha-like aroma. Not incredibly aromatic, but pleasant.

Dark roasted malts make for a background and let coffee flavors and a somewhat sweet milkiness spice them up. Hops add a bitterness in the back that is welcome to the style as the malts are not quite as fierce as they could be, but then again it is a pretty light ABV beer, so it makes sense. But still, a bit more of a kick from the malts, not the booze, would have accentuated some very nice flavors here instead of having a light-medium bodied beer. That said, its not a bad beer by any means. A prickly mouthfeel in the middle moves to a dry, more effervescent finish, aided by the balancing hops. I wouldn't turn this down, pretty solid beer here.

Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a Sam Adams "upside-down bowling pin" shaped glass (what are these things called?).

The beer is incredibly dark, with a thick, chocolate milk colored head. It looks like a stout should look.

Lots of dark bread in the aroma. Dark chocolate, a hint of sweetened coffee, and dark doughy bread.

Light-Medium bodied. Not as creamy as many oatmeal stouts I've had in the past. The flavor has lots of dark roasted malt, charcoal and coffee right up front. There is a bit of astringency toward the end followed by a smoky charred flavor and a clean refreshing finish.

Not the most complex stout in the world. It has a lot of charcoal flavor and not much else. It's good, I recommend it, and I will have another. However, I would't go out of my way to find it.

Poured into a pint glass. Reviewed alongside Rogue Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout.

A: Dark brown/black with two-finger, tan, creamy head that lasted a few minutes. Nice lacing.

S: Chocolate and coffee. Roasted malt. Not that strong.

T: Moderate sweetness and moderate bitterness. Roasted espresso and chocolate notes. Hint of hops too.

M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Smooth but not too creamy.

O: The taste and mouthfeel were a bit of a letdown, but this isn't a bad Oatmeal stout. I did like the Rogue much more.

This beer is dark like you would expect a stout to be. Roasty like hell but what surprised me is that it was somewhat very smooth. The oats apparently did it's job. So all roast and bitter in your face followed by a smoothness yet a little dry at the end.

You would expect a good head on this because of the oatmeal and rightfully so. Maintained head all the way to the last drop.

Aromas include roasted coffee and bitter chocolate. Overall enjoyable because it's beer and would be happy to order it on tap if I saw it somewhere but there are a lot of oatmeal stouts out there. While not bad it's not great, middle of the road.
