Style: Oatmeal Stout. The origins of Oatmeal Stout go back hundreds of years when oats were added to Stouts to promote a healthier image than other beers available during that time period. Flavor Profile: The unique blend of the oats and malts in Alaskan Stout produce a balanced, smooth beer with hints of coffee and caramel. History: Alaskan Stout was originally brewed as a Rough Draft for our customers in Alaska. The popularity of the Stout allowed it to become the Brewery's fourth year-round product in the fall of 1998. Ingredients: Water, malt, hops and yeast with no adjuncts, no preservatives and no pasteurization. Our glacier-fed water originates in the 1,500 square-mile Juneau Ice Field. Crafted with Pale, Vienna and Black malts, malted wheat, roast barley, oats, and Golding hops. Recommendations: Alaskan Stout is well matched with clams, oysters and pork tenderloin. For a special treat, pour over vanilla ice cream or serve with chocolate. Specifications: Original Gravity: 1.065, ABW 4.55%, ABV 5.65%, Bitterness: 28 IBU, Color: 119 SRM

    Pours very black, thicker pour and a very thick dark tan head. The aroma is of roasted grains, dark malts. The taste has a full body with no bitter aftertaste weetness. Almost as thick and chewy as an imperial stout. Stout beers are my leaste favorate style but this isn't that bad of a beer.

    My first beer from Alaska, purchased at Total Wine on my trip to Vegas. Pours a real dark brown (almost black) with little red highlights. Nice big mocha cap with decent retention and full patchy lacing. Mild roasted malts with notes of molasses and coffee. Smooth and slightly oily mouthfeel. Roasted malt taste that is not too bitter, but sweetened by the oatmeal and has a quick finish. Not much lingers. Not a bad oatmeal stout, but I have had better, creamier, tastier ones.

    It pours oil-black with thin tan head, some lacing. Light aroma of chocolate malt, light citrus, oats maybe. The mouthfeel is smooth, rich, and full-bodied. Has an Alaska-campy burnt, smoked flavor of sweet chocolate malts, oatmeal, light hops, light orange, molasses, figs, raisins, and mild spices. Excellent.

    I was about halfway done with this review when i kicked the beer over. What was it doing on the floor in the first place?? Who knows... Anyways, from the first third, which im assuming the rest of the beer probably was like- pitch black, not lumpy at all. Heavy, steady and quick down the hatch. Aroma was smokey. Not bbq and not campfire but borderline sausage. Semi sweet, i can see the oatmeal and the cocoa coming through midway. Damn this was awesome. I love those alaskan beers, too bad when i finally get one im spilling it all over the living room.

    An Alaskan nugget from jerrymorrison - thanks. Pours almost black with a thin tan head and a fair amount of lacing. Some chocolate, a touch of coffee, a lot of malts and some hops in the aromas. Taste is smooth and slightly sweet with the malts, chocolate and bit of coffee up front then some hops in the finish.

    An ok stout, slighty above average in most respects, however there was a strange flavor that i couldnt place, and that put a damper on this beer for me. Overall it was a decent enough brew, that was smooth and easy to drink, and i would be willing to try it again.

    12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown / black with a thin brown head that quickly diminishes to a thin collar.

    The aroma is a bit subdued but nice - sweet grainy chocolate malts and some coffee.

    The flavor is sweet lactic and nutty chocolate malts with some coffee notes. It has a roasted dry finish that balances the sweetness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly watery and chalky.

    Overall, a nice easy drinking stout.

    This beer carries with it the characteristics of the entire brewery. The same distinct flavor is prevelant as in any of the other Alaskan beers. A nice dark color without a heavy load.

    Pours a very dark brown with a thinnish light tan head. Aroma is strongly roasted, espresso, burnt dark chocolate, grass, and molasses. Flavor starts with some caramel and molasses, followed by coffee and burnt chocolate. Turns lightly acidic before finishing out with burnt toast and some light grain husk flavors. Supremely quaffable, a nice light, easy drinking stout.
