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!

4.18/5  rDev +12.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

pours an amazingly dark black--no light getting through here--with purple highlights at the very edges and a good thick dark brown head. head falls and no lacing is left, but upon first pour this beer was awesome.

smells of bitter roast and grain, chalk, dark chocolate and soy.

taste starts with a sweet milk taste (from the oats perhaps?) quickly followed by a slightly chocolate, light roasted coffee flavor that takes over. Some soy and smoky flavor comes through with the grain, then gives way to chalk and slight minerality in the finish that combines with a bit of hop flavor/bitterness. Aftertaste leaves notes of tobacco.

overall a lightly carbonated and medium bodied beer--much lighter than i expected given it's rich color. Overall easy to drink and plenty of flavor. I'd even consider eating this with some japanese food. a fine, clean stout.

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.
