This oatmeal stout started as an experiment in a munich-based stout and has turned into a really fine beer. The experiment thread is available here.

You get a very nice balance of malt flavour with a roasty finish and a nice roasty/malty nose. The oats gives it a really nice velvety mouthfeel and a slight hint of oat flavour. This is a very drinkable and enjoyable beer and at session strength you can enjoy quite a few in a sitting.

Glad you guys enjoyed it BeerCanuck. I should have mentioned in my OP, it really doesn't come into its own until 3 months from brew day. Before that the roasted flavour dominates the munich - which isn't necessarily a bad thing given that it's a stout - just not what I originally intended.

I brewed this the other day and didn't get ANY cold break when I chilled the wort. Has anyone else had this experience or it is a byproduct of the oatmeal?

Sidenote: I forgot to toss in a whirlfloc tablet, could that have caused it?

I've been making oatmeal stouts since I started brewing a few years ago, never noticed any difference in cold break due to the oats. The whirlfloc may help the cold break be more visible, but if you chilled quickly from boiling to pitching temp I don't see any way you couldn't have gotten it. I wouldn't worry about it though.

Hope you enjoy the beer, be sure to post back when it's ready for drinking!

I actually had this happen when I brewed the O'Flannigain standard stout. I also forgot the whirlfloc (not that I care if my stout has a haze) and I blamed it on that.

I was planning on brewing this shortly Brad
Just wondering about the flaked oats in the recipe. Can you use the standard breakfast oatmeal from the grocery store?

Cheers
Steve

Yup, all I use are the Quaker Quick Oats from the convenience store.

Do you add the oats to the mash or in the boil?
