Tasting Notes

Pouring deep dark brown, with rich aromas of  dark chocolate, licorice, and coffee flavours that follow into a palate that’s full bodied with bold flavours, and a moderately dry finish.  This stout will convert even the most fearful of dark beer drinkers, and would be most happy being sipped by a campfire or along side a beef stew!


Oatmeal Stouts are an old English style of stout brewed with the addition of flaked oats in the grain bill. Oats contribute a very creamy and smooth texture to the finished beer, as well as aid in head retention. A style made by a select few brewers in the U.K. only to find acclaim by modern craft brewers. Because of this style, craft brewers have taken to adding oats in all manners of styles, including IPA’s.

Our Thoughts

I love when a stout strikes the balance between rich, chocolatey notes and a dry, malty finish, which is exactly what the Cereal Killer delivers! This oatmeal stout is made in an old English style and is an approachable dark beer for folks who usually stick to something lighter. This beer is my first choice for a cozy winter sipper, or to pair with a hearty beef stew.

    Pretty darn good – a lighter stout, with a lovely finish. Definitely agree on the tasting notes, and it would indeed do well around a campfire. Will have again in the future.
