Brewed by:
Millstream Brewing Company
Iowa, United States

Style: Oatmeal Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The 'oatmeal' in the name is due the 5% oatmeal in the the grist of this brew. Oats give beer a real thick mouthfeel, something definitely desirable in a stout! Black malt and roasted barley give the beer its color, and coffee-like flavors. If you like thick full-bodied & smooth stout, this beer is for you!

Sampling right now on 1/24/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.

Pours a very dark brown/almost black in color with just a thing beige head seen. Spotty lacing is seen with each sip. The aroma is of dark roasted malts, black coffee with a hint of chocolate. The taste is actually even better with the roasted malts/coffee coming right though that ends with a slight chocolate finish. No bitter or harsh finish on this one! Goes down very easy and is very enjoyable to drink.
