Shakespeare Chocolate Oatmeal StoutShakespeare Chocolate Oatmeal Stout
Notes: 2014 Silver Medal from the Atlantic Canada Beer Awards. Shakespeare Chocolate Oatmeal Stout is a full and silky body stout, dark chocolate in colour. The aroma is rich with caramel, chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. A very low spice and floral hop character makes this stout complex and original.

Dark brown with a thick head. Rich, bready nose. Medium malt body with a smooth oatmeal mouthfeel. Lovely and filling.

Serving Type: 500 mL pour into a Nonic Pint Glass at The Snooty Fox in Fredericton, NB.

A- Pours a Jet Black, opaque hue topped by a thin film of tan head. Relatively disappointing head/head retention, but a good looking brew nonetheless. Light tan lacing on the glass.

S- Dark, roasty malt accompanied by dark chocolate and a cream-esque sweetness.

T- Identical to the aroma with the creaminess playing a bigger part.

M- Medium body and low carbonation. Exactly how a stout should be, in my opinion. Easy drinking.

O- A lot of local people have raved about this beer but whenever I had a chance to get to Big Axe, it was out of rotation. After drinking a few pints of the stuff today, I can confidently say that the beer lives up to the hype. Nothing overly remarkable about the beer, just a solid stout with some great flavours.

Nice dark ruby stout. Cream texture with nice chocolate notes, however, they are masked by the fragrant, delicious coffee tones this beer has to offer. One of the best oatmeal stouts I've had.
