In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


The Saint Louis Brewery Schlafly Oatmeal Stout

“A bit estery, but not far out of style. A bit of heat as it warms, and more roast develops. What an interesting blend! Roast malt, moderate coffee, and then a strong hit of fruit. Then it’s followed by a wash of hops flavor and bitterness. The fruitiness is the wild card—it’s more real fruit than esters.”
