On special for $4 at Sheffields (anything for $4 in Chicago tends to be worth looking at).

A - Solid black, brownish on the edges, head is much lighter than expected. No lacing, sides clean.

S - Roasted malts, tiny bit of oats, some coffee, not really a ton going on, but it does smell like a stout, weakly.

T - Very blah. Tastes uneventful. Mild malts, a touch sweet, but there is just nothing going on here, kind of just is there in your mouth, and then it's not. Quite lacking in taste.

M - Has the consistency of some horrible health drink that went flat and is overly watery while carrying a stronger taste than the body should hold. Not good at all, almost spit out of your mouth bad. Too flat.

D - I wouldn't want to drink this again, poor mouthfeel and taste rates it low on this particular variable.

It was my first summit that I remember having during the first summer of my 21st birthday. I had seen billboards talking about if they knew how much beer it took to cook 100 brats. First, Minnesota, you have no idea, (Wisconsin), and second when I had the sip of the beer, although it looked great, the oatmeal stout was bland. It had, no taste, or aroma.

Appearance: Pours close to black with ruby hints around the edges. About 2" of light tan head forms which has extremely good retention and lacing.

Smell: A touch of roast, chocolate and coffee. Pretty weak smell overall.

Taste: Weak roast and chocolate with an odd fruity finish. Nothing in the way of smooth oatmeal and rich roast and chocolate flavors.

Overall: Medium bodied with low carbonation. Pretty good here. I did not care for this oatmeal stout much. Maybe due to the fact that it was on nitro tap it killed the flavors, but I found it pretty weak all in all. I'd try this out again if given the chance.
