Notes/Commercial Description:
Silver Medal Winner 1997 World Beer Championships - Oatmeal Stouts.
Our classic dark beer. Full body and a well rounded flavor comes from a foundation of seven different grains. The oats add a special silky texture that complements the roasted malts. The rich malty flavor is spiced with plenty of Northern Brewer and Fuggles hops for balance. Enjoy this perennial Free State Favorite by itself or as a blend with one of our other beers.

Got to try this one courtesy of daniloknezic, thanks! Poured from the bottle into a snifter, tasting as I let it warm up from fridge temp.

Appearance is light, almost cola-like, half finger head that quickly receded, leaving a paper thin ring of bubbles around the edge.

Smells of roasted malt and oats with some chocolate. Pleasant, but not exceptional. Little bit of hoppiness starts to sneak in as it warms up.

Taste is of chocolate, roasty oatmeal, with a hint of sweetness towards the end.

Mouthfeel is extremely light for a stout, and pretty dry. Usually, I'm not a fan of that, but it works in this one. It's a nice "summer" stout. Think grilling, hiking, etc.

Overall, I'm glad I tried it, it fits a niche. I would definitely consider it again when I'm in the mood for a stout on a warm summer day.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - Dark black, only a glimmer of light comes through. Very little head but lacing holds up well

S - pretty weak, molasses and spices from the hops

T - Chocolate, coffee, toffe

M - a bit watery for a stout

O - a bit dissapointing, not as strong flavor and mouthfeel as I'd like from an outmeat stout.. Would drink another, but not something I'll seek out.
