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.

Purchased in Newton, KS. Brought back to Oklahoma. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter glass.

Black liquid with a short tan head. Incredible aroma, lots of toasty charred notes.

Flavor is very toasty and dry. Dark chocolate. Very earthy. Delicious bitter with a little bit of sweetness in the background.

Dryer than most oatmeal stouts but I like it.

Nice texture, smooth yet a little bit "chewy." Fairly thick mouthfeel for the style.

This one is worth seeking out. Exceptionally good.

The second in an installment of beers I got in exchange for some jalapeno poppers at a party at my neighbors house. Side poured with standard vigor from the bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - Standard oatmeal stout appearance, which means amazing. Pours a dark black color with a thin caramel head that dissipates relatively quickly, but leaves just a trace of lacing on the glass. Pretty standard Free State packaging, as soon as you see this beer you know it is from Free State.

Smell - A bit of coffee, some chocolate, touch of molasses and some creaminess. Pretty subdued nose.

Taste - Much more pronounced than the nose, although the same flavors are present. The creaminess is amazing, with chocolate, roasted malts, and coffee flavors balanced by just a bit of bitter hops.

Mouthfeel - This is probably my favorite part of the beer, given its thick creamy nature, smooth finish, and easy drinkability. Very nicely done, feels a lot more expensive on the palate.

Overall - This is a pretty good beer! Condor recommended and approved. For the price it is hard to beat, especially from such a small brewery. Give this a try, you wont be disappointed.
