Sixpoint Launches "Bourbon Barrel Imperial Otis" and Crowd Goes Wild

Discussion in 'Beer Releases' started by Sixpoint, Feb 27, 2014.

    Forget about "Girls Gone Wild." This time, the Crowd Went Wild.

    Sixpoint has tapped dat keg of Imperial Otis, which is a darker, more robust, and more boss version of their Oatmeal Stout "Otis" brewed at Sixpoint in Brooklyn NYC since 2005. The Imperial Otis is a 9% Imperial Oatmeal Stout, with about 57 IBU of hop flavor and a ton of raw oats to add that "X factor" to the mouthfeel. But most important, the Mad Scientists aged that shiz in a JD Willet Bourbon Barrel. The result? Velvety smooth vanilla and silk mouthfeel, with a roasty toasty east coasty texture and mouthfeel. You heard it here first!

    "widely" might be a bit of a stretch. But they will be given some of the sauce.

    hitting manhattan at all? i'll bite. i like otis, and i like imperial oatmeal stouts in general.

    others may think oats makes a big stout's mouthfeel too "slick," but myself i throw them in all the time. love the results.

    Depends on how many taps you have on that kegerator. We may not have enough supply. :)

    Yup, mouthfeel/texture often takes a backseat to taste. Not with this beer though...oily slick!

    Any chance this will be available at the NY Craft Beer Fest in Albany on March 22nd?
  14. @Sixpoint
    Awesome, but what's with all the slang and cultural references? In a lively mood this morning, or is that going to be incorporated into the marketing of this beer?

    Was just having a little bit of fun last night. Its just that every single press release is written in a rather boring and monochromatic style. I was at the brewery late last night with our creative team and we thought it would be fun to post a different type of press release. We took those photos in our hospitality room above the brewery and BAM! there you go.........Thought I would liven it up a bit! :)

    It's all about the liquid anyway. Try it out and let us know what you think.

    glad you like the playful style - as I mentioned, it was done kind of as a joke - but also as a contrast to the usual plain and typical style of a press release...

    going out for shipment next week...

    yes, that's the proper spelling!
  19. Shane, I will purchase Bourbon Barrel Imperial Otis if I see it on tap at my local beer bars.

    Cheers!

  21. Unfortunately I live quite a distance from Brooklyn so I will be seeking this beer at my local beer bars.

    I appreciate your invitation though.

    Cheers!

    P.S. I will be bottling a Tmavy Lezak this evening.

    "Crowd Goes Wild" was the reaction from the fans, not the name of the beer ;-)

    you certainly will, please email [email protected] for details

    suggest you contact TJ Sheehan wholesalers, they will be distributing the product

    sounds like a great event, but since we do not have distribution out there at this time, it does not seem likely...
