Served on-tap in Doubletree Hotel Lobby Bar in Durham, NC (Doubletree Raleigh Durham Airport)
A: Pours an opaque yet clear very dark brown (almost black) in color with some light amounts of gentle carbonation near the surface and a light amount of very dark amber highlights. The beer has a finger tall pillowy dark tan head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of roasted malts, oats, chocolate, and coffee with the lightest hints of toffee sweetness.
T: Similar to the smell, the flavor of this beer is dominated by the lightly roasted malts and oats. There are some lighter notes of chocolate and coffee, which intensify as the beer warms up. Light amounts of lingering bitterness.
M: Just shy of medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and creamy, almost slightly airy.
O: Easy to drink with the lighter mouthfeel and slightly sweet malt flavors. Sessionable feeling and definitely a great beer for the early spring.

12 oz bottle poured into a nonic.
No date or info.
Thanks for the brew Alex!
A - From a tall pour, Rail House's Oatmeal Stout fills the glass with a deep, dark mahogany brown color that looks almost black and is topped by a short-lived light khaki head. No retention and no lace to speak of.
S - Gritty roasted malt presence suggests a milk and bittersweet chocolate combination with cocoa notes and a grainy pale malt background with little hop influence. Oats definitely play a part though, and it smells like this beer will have a creamy mouthfeel.
T - Roasted malt opens up with a nice chocolate and coffee blend, but never becomes acrid or bitter. Nutty and woody earth tones follow up in this simple but tasty flavor.
M - Smooth and creamy with a moderately carbonated, faintly bitter finish, Rail House's Oatmeal Stout is medium-full bodied and coffee-lingering.
O - Grab a hunk of Dove milk chocolate and let it melt in your mouth with Rail House's Oatmeal Stout, a smooth voluptuous beer with chocolate and coffee nuances and a tasty finish.

Picked up a growler of this while passing through NC on our way from Florida to NH. I poured into a pint glass, and the beer poured a dark, crystal clear brown color, with ruby highlights and a low-profile, one inch, small bubbled off-white head. Aromas of chocolate syrup, coffee, and a nutty highlight. The beer's flavors are tangy sweet, with a slight molasses tang to the heavy coffee foundation. Some dark fruit (raisin and date) highlights. The body is a little watery for the style, with no lacing on the glass. The aftertaste is darkly sweet, with a roasted coffee character. The finish is watery and slick, and lingers for a bit. Decent brew. Good flavors, and it would certainly make a tasty ice cream float.

Grabbed this on tap at the railhouse brewery, and got a growler fill and promptly returned home to enjoy more and write this review. Poured into a small 8oz snifter.
A- Dark in color with hints of an amber-brown if held to the light. Not your traditional "oil black" stout which is unique and a nice change of pace. Very small tan colored head that doesn't stick around long but leaves a nice thin layer on the surface. Very little lacing, but there.
S- Roasted malt, bready, nutty, chocolate, and small hints of coffee. The coffee aroma really starts to pop out as the beer warms.
T- Great roasted malt flavors on the front, has a slightly sour yeast flavor to it, but its not a bad thing. On the back end is a lingering coffee flavor with traces of chocolate and bread.
M- Smooth mouth feel, small amounts of carbonation on the tongue and roof of your mouth.
O- Overall a great beer. Definitely an interesting spin on a stout, but like i said before, its a good thing. Its a well rounded stout that you can have several glasses of and not feel like you just ate thanksgiving. Will definitely drink it again.

Found on draft at The Bell Tree Tavern in Southern Pines, NC. Poured into a standard pint glass...
A - Poured a dark, almost opaque brown color. A tiny khaki colored head was present when served and receded a bit to a collar of the same color.
S - Roasted malts, coffee, some chocolate, and some toffee are present right off the bat. The Malts definitely take the stage on the nose with everything else complementing what that has to offer.
T - Roasted malts, some roasted coffee and some slight chocolate up front on the palate. The sweetness mixes nicely with the bitterness here.
M - Little thin, but still had a nice smooth feel to it. Carbonation was moderate and the body was on the medium side.
O - Really nice offering and one that I would definitely go back to again. Seemed like quite a sessionable stout which was nice to find.
