This winter seasonal brewed with wheat, oatmeal, and cocoa was still pouring when I visited Skye in mid-April. The menu describes it as having "a hint of bourbon." Presumably that means it was cask conditioned in a bourbon barrel though I somehow find that unlikely. I certainly found no hints of bourbon.

The beer's most standout feature is its cultivated creamy texture that's exactly as you'd wish to find in an oatmeal stout. Starve Out also has a minty aroma and flavor with faded roastiness. The mint elements are challenging. But the cocoa ties it together nicely.
