A-Black with tan foam that hangs around for half a pint

S-Roasted chocolate malt

T-Dark malted with chocolate notes, slight bitterness from malts

M-Pretty light for the style and for how it looks it will be.

D-Average for the style, could have a few.

Overall-One of my favorites from Summit, which tends to go a little heavy on the bitter hops for most of their brews.

Served in a 16oz chilled pint glass at JL Beers in Fargo, ND
Looks like espresso during the first second of the pour followed by the nice cascade effect from the nitrogen and just under two fingers worth of creamy nitro-head. Smell is very similar, espresso and coffee, with a very slight sweetness of chocolate. First taste is of roasted barley finishing with a malty sweetness. Full Bodied and lingers for little while after it's gone. A very nice alternate to Guinness for desert.

On tap at my local pub. Bartender had quite the time, pouring a 3/4 glass of head before done, which might explain why I'm not crazy about this stout. Maybe I'm spoiled from some of the better imperial stouts out there, because the Summit Oatmeal just doesn't quite measure up. Very smooth and drinkable, just nothing special in the taste department.

Served this Oatmeal Stout on tap, in a pint glass. Poured a very nice dark brown color, almost black, produced a tan average head, retention was average and it left ample lacing on the glass. The aroma of this stout consisted of roasted grain, and milk chocolate. Full bodied, this stout is smooth, creamy slick- You notice the mouthfeel almost before you taste anything. Roasted grain, milk chocolate, a splash of coffee complete the flavor profile of this beer. Excellent session beer, very nice example of a traditional oatmeal stout.

Had this on nitro at Whistle Binkies. Pours a dark brown/black color with a creamy tan head that left sheets of lacing down the glass. Very nice! Aroma was a little light, some watered down roasty malts, hints of chocolate. Taste was very nice. Roasted malts were in good supply, some chocolate and coffee notes, and a nice creaminess. I for one do not like nitro-tap brews. While the flavor of this beer was spot on, the body was off for me. Yes, it was creamy, but it was definitely missing that carbonation bite that would have really made this beer sing. The nitro basically ruined this for me and made a good beer less drinkable. It just seemed like flat, watery beer. Where is the body on this thick tasting brew?? If I could find this carbonated with CO2, I would enjoy it much more.
