Notes / Commercial Description:

Oatmeal stout pours a black color with a small barley lacing head. Nice rich creamy aroma, with hints of smoke, chocolate and oats. Flavor is light and watery, but smokey oat flavors do come through. A bit watery, but not bad. Overall a decent plain oatmeal.

Mixed feelings on this offering from Breckenridge...

I really like how it looked coming out of the glass, but was under-whelmed when it came to its odor - not much of anything I could really pull out with my nose. The mouthfeel was quite impressive - very smooth and a very clean finish - it got better the warmer the beer became. The taste followed much of what met my nose - so again, nothing truly to mention. Overall, a decent beer, just a mixed bag of experiences for me.

The beer pours a thick dark brown with a nice tan head. There is an aroma of toffee and chocolate. Some mild toasty malts and a hint of coffee. The beer tastes like a basic stout with roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate flavorings but they are are very mild. Nothing stands out in the flavor. The beer is very smooth and a nice drink just nothing to write home about.

From a bottle, pours a very dark brown with a dense one finger dark tan head. Aroma is a pleasant burnt coffee. Upfront flavor is roasted malt made smooth by the oats; follow on flavors are of espresso, chocolate and caramel. Mouth feel is decent for a regular beer, but really disappointing for an oatmeal stout.

There is just not a lot going on with this beer. The color is a dark brown. Poured a nice head that left a nice trace of foam on my beer through out the whole drink. I get a slight chocolate and a very little roastiness but it is all very subtle. The taste is about the same with the roastiness more prounounced in the after taste. The mouthfeel is creamy which I like. Overall nothing really stands out about this beer and is very plain.

Hmm, this is a lighter shade of black and brown than I like to see when hitting up an oatmeal stout. The head wasn't top notch either. For shame. Aroma was mild roast, nothing shocking.

Taste is better than the appearance, the mouthfeel mixed with oats gives a roasty taste and easy drinking vibe. Nothing special, but it comes together substance wise even if appearance wise it leaves a little to be desired.

Pours dark brown and with a couple fingers of cream colored head that recedes quickly. Lots of coffee and roastiness on the nose. Taste is of coffee, roasted malt, char, dark chocolate and a hint of raisins. Full bodied and with flavors that linger. I quite like it.

Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout has a thin-to-medium, beige, cola-type head of foam, a very dark-brown (essentially black) appearance, with tight bubble streams on the sides of the glass, and just a few lacing strings left behind. Aroma is of acrid, sharp malt, some raisin, and pungent note. Taste is of acrid, roasted malt, a bit of char, some sweetness, and the bitterness stems from the carbon, more so than from hops. Mouthfeel is a bit watery, and Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout finishes medium-wet and a bit dull.
