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.

Look: black with a nice two finger cap of dense tan head
Smell: roasty, slightly chalky
Taste: Dark roasted malt notes dominate with mild herbal hops. Very mild flavor profile like many nitro stouts.
Feel: Super smooth medium body

Overall: Definitely one of the best Summit beers I have tried, their nitro oatmeal delivers pretty much everything that is expected of the style. Gentle roasty flavors dominate with the anticipated smoothness delivered by the nitro.

Have had this from the nitro tap at the brewery and at the Pig & Fiddle. L: Pours bright black under a 1” tan foam collar with a very fine bead. S: Light coffee with chocolate notes. T: Slightly sweet, very rich coffee and chocolate flavors, no harsh roast or burnt flavors. F: Very smooth and creamy, medium full body, medium carbonation, very soft. O: I forget to order this too often. When I do order it, I drink it all night.

Sweet but not overly so. A hint of coffee and a touch of berry. Very enjoyable.

This is flawless oatmeal stout, pours black with thick creamy tan head awesome retention and lacing. Frothy dense texture is very appealing, taste like roasted chocolate malt no bitter finished lightly hopped. Shot way up my list.
