Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Oatmeal Stout is a classic British-style stout brewed with flaked oatmeal and roasted barley. Freshly-roasted coffee beans, cocoa and touches of raisin and dried fruit dominate the aroma of this super dark ale. The richness of the grain blend is balanced by the nutty character of the roasted malt, the creaminess from the oatmeal flakes and a dose of hops.

Before the 19th century, all barley was malted over wood-fired kilns and the resulting dark roasted malt defined the browns, porters, and stouts of England. Near the end of the 19th century, brewers had introduced oats for their purported restorative and nourishing characteristics, producing beers such as oatmeal stout and milk stout. By the 1950’s, Oatmeal Stout had nearly trickled out of existence. Following the beer’s literary rebirth in the articles of English beer writer Michael Jackson in the 1970’s, British and American craft brewers are once again promoting the style.

Solid, drinkable beer, that lacks the creamy sweetness of the very best oatmeal stouts. Big fan of the dry finish though.

Sampled at the tap room, just as it should be, damnit. Poured off the tap a DARK brown like Coca Cola (not quite black because sunlight still passes through it). Tan head about a finger thick displays good retention and some broken lacing. Aromas are a little light for such a heavy looking brew, roasted malts and baker's chocolate with a slight hint of vinegar. The flavors were equally taut, bitter coffee, caramel with a milk chocolate finish when the malts balance out. Malts are a little chalky though. Medium body is a little light for the style but the carbonation is light which gives it a creamy feel. It feels off balance to me and lacks gumption and heft. Where's the winter deflecting chutzpah? Get on St. Louis and keep me posted.
