Schlafly Brand – Oatmeal Stout
Is it nerdy to love oatmeal? It’s kind of a weird food. If so, I’m a nerd—and that’s why Schlafly’s Oatmeal Stout hopped right off the shelf and into my hands. I think it goes along with the season, too.
Although it tastes nothing like oatmeal, it still has that heartiness that I was looking forward to. It is just like a typical stout, so it’s definitely tasty but I thought I was going to get something different. I thought this oatmeal beer was going to stand out—to be weird and give me an “Oh, I didn’t expect that” kinda flavor. That being said, Schlafly didn’t entirely disappoint me. I like it.
And truly … here’s the kicker. After experiencing Cincinnati’s Oktoberfest this weekend (the largest Oktoberfest celebration in the nation) I am happy to have something delicious but mild. I have always heard that oatmeal has calming effects. I really needed the calm that this oatmeal provided. So thank you, Schlafly, for the perfect end to my weekend and the perfect addition to Monday Night Football.
