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.

Sampling right now on 6/28/14. Bought this one while down in Kansas at the beginning of the month, just a single for $1.49. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a "Free State Beer" pilsner glass.

Pours black in color and you can't see through it. A small beige head is seen that settles down to a thin layer on top and sides. Ringed lacing is seen when sipped that slides back down the inside of the glass. The aroma is of roasted malts with a hint of molasses. The taste has lots of roasted malt flavor with some spice and coffee. A very slight bitter finish that doesn't last long. Perfect carbonation for this type of brew. Overall a very tasty stout!

Light black in color and just a touch of light will get through. A solid half inch of light beige colored foam rests on top. Brussels lacing. I smell judiciously used oats and dark malt. The first sip reveals a quick rush of oats that is quickly overpowered by dark roasted malt which leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste. The mouth is creamy and slightly chalky. Straightforward and simple.
