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!

Welp, this was a nice sixer of a solid oaty. Not outstanding, but a very good drinker that would be nice in the DBF this coming winter.

The pour was always very good – dark ass brown/black with a frothy tan head and supportive lacing. Good smeller too – tons of chocolate bar with a marshmallow backing. Dry and crisp finish, nicely done.

Taste is where it wimped out a bit, solid Oaty of chocolate, coffee and malt – but on the weak side. Still decent and tasty. Good priced at $7.50 a sixer, drink ‘er down !
