Baby-Boy’s Rating:

Breckenridge tells you right on the label that its Oatmeal Stout is dark. When you pour it into the glass you see the label is telling you the truth as the beer pours so dark that it makes the glass reflect your prying eyes right back you.

With many oatmeal stouts, you are immediately reminded of breakfast, which can be a good or bad thing depending on how much you like oatmeal. With this beer, however, the oatmeal contributes more to the smooth feel of this beer than the flavor.

Coffee dominates the flavor of this beer, though the smell gives a hint of its maltiness. The overall effect of the aspects of this beer make it a good, solid brew, and one that stout lovers can appreciate.
