On-tap at the pre-DLD Flossmoor Event.

A - Pours black, tan head, spotty lace and thin collar.

S - Roast, chocolate, dark fruits, oak. I don't get much (if any) of the oatmeal notes from this beer, but the rest of it is good.

T - Similar to the nose, but more chocolate and dark fruits. The oak and roast are there, but in less quantity. There's a light coffee/oatmeal note that comes through as well. Finish is dark chocolate and oak.

M - Medium body, good carbonation, smooth, creamy finish.

O - A nice take on an Oatmeal Stout and I was able to easy finish my pour. This beer pops up from time to time around the Chicagoland area, so I'm looking forward to it again in the near future.

I tried this beer at Goose Island's Stoutfest and it was poured by Flossmoor's headbrewer himself. He told me that they aged this 5.5% oatmeal stout in Woodford Reserve barrels. It poured a dark brown on the verge of black with a light khaki head. The nose was just what I wanted, coffee, chocolate, and Woodford Reserve. It smelled great. Being 5.5% you wouldn't expect THAT much bourbon but it was definitely the predominant aroma. The flavor was actually heavier on the bourbon than I thought it would be but was fine because the actual alcohol didn't burn or bother. I really liked it. It drank very smoothly and had a mellow bourbon finish. I'd relate this to Barley Island's Beastie Barrel Stout. I found it to be very drinkable and a good representation of a lower content stout with big time bourbon barrel aging.
