Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: tavernjef on 02-04-2006

Here's what happens when substance meets smooth. This oatmeal brown ale defies traditional categories. Bender begins crisp and lightly hoppy, complemented by the velvety sleekness oats deliver. Belgian and British malts usher in cascades of cocoa, coffee, carmel and hints of vanilla and cream. An easy-drinking ale with many layers of satisfaction.

An easy drinking brown ale with desert characteristics and some porter to it. Only being a 5%abv it drinks nicely. Brown sugar is the first notion with raisin quickly following Carmel aftertaste. Great beer to have with a steak or some pecan pie or nothing at all ;)
