Style | ABV
Oatmeal Stout |  6.70% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
The 'oatmeal' in the name is due the 5% oatmeal in the the grist of this brew. Oats give beer a real thick mouthfeel, something definitely desirable in a stout! Black malt and roasted barley give the beer its color, and coffee-like flavors. If you like thick full-bodied & smooth stout, this beer is for you!

3.58/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: Big E-Z Cap swig-top brown one liter bottle with no freshness date.

Appearance: Ink black with a sizeable frothy tan head.

Smell: Creamy and sweet ... pretty much what you would get off of an iced cafe latte.

Taste: Silky smooth and held together by a textured medium body. Intermingling roasted and sweet malt flavours ... followed by more silky sweetness. Roasted flavours are a bit restrained though leave a nice bitter bite. Underlying caramel flavour and a coffee like aftertaste wrap up the finish.

Notes: Very drinkable and quite clean ... not your usual over roasted character found in a lot of oatmeal stouts, just good easy drinking. Goes perfect with any kind of chocolate.

A lighter stout than I expected. Nice deep roast color, with a nice tan head. I predominately tasted coco powder and the oat meal. It's not a "sweet" stout by any means. It is light, and leaves a very mild aftertaste on your tongue. I almost taste a fruitiness I can't place after I swallow. A good stout if you're looking something that isn't thick and rich feeling.
