This beer pours a black body with a thick head that lasts through the glass. The aroma was all roasted malt with a hint of oatmeal. The taste was roasted malt, with a hint of sweetness, hops were just there for balance. I couldn't taste any oats but it was smooth. Nice thick creamy mouthfeel. Would make a great session beer but probably not complex enough to drink all night.

3.3/5  rDev -16.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance – Almost black in color with a huge, pitting head that went down slowly and beautifully.

Smell – Yes, this one is full of oatmeal. There’s also a good amount of roasted malts along with a small bit of coffee. This is a stouty stout indeed.

Taste – The roasted malts lead off followed by the promised flavor of oatmeal. This one was good but it lost some of its complexity from the nose.

Mouthfeel – This one is big, almost full, but there was some annoying carbonation that I didn’t like.

Drinkability – This was better than I expected. We’re not known here in Seattle for doing up right styles like this, but the Pike Oatmeal Stout wasn’t all that bad.

3.79/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: clea rblack in color with a creamy 1" head that lasts a while. Some nice lacing develops.

Smell: hints of roasted malts and coffee.

Taste: roasted malt, molasses, coffee, and chocolate are all very mellow but well balanced. An overall creamy texture creates a lighter experience.

Mouthfeel: smooth, dry, and creamy throughout. A prickle of crispness during he initial swigs. Afteraste is short on the roasted malt and coffee tones. Medium bodied.

Drinkability: very nice even though it is not as meaty as some other oatmeal stouts. IMHO I found this to be the best beer at Pike's during my trip.

In my opinion this is one of Pike's better beers. Nice black colour with a creamy tan head. Chocolate, malty nose. Faint oatmeal sweetness. Rich mocha and toffee taste. I can't detect the oatmeal, but it certainly adds to the smoothness.

Good body, not too thin. Easy to drink.

This is one of my favourite oatmeal stouts - wish it was still available. It has a very rich, thick flavour. Hugs the sides of the glass. Very dark, almost chocolatey. Smells as good as it tastes. Faint scent/taste of coffee, lingers on the tongue for awhile.
