Free State Brewing Co.
Kansas, United States

Notes / Commercial Description:
Silver Medal Winner 1997 World Beer Championships - Oatmeal Stouts.
Our classic dark beer. Full body and a well rounded flavor comes from a foundation of seven different grains. The oats add a special silky texture that complements the roasted malts. The rich malty flavor is spiced with plenty of Northern Brewer and Fuggles hops for balance. Enjoy this perennial Free State Favorite by itself or as a blend with one of our other beers.

Light black in color and just a touch of light will get through. A solid half inch of light beige colored foam rests on top. Brussels lacing. I smell judiciously used oats and dark malt. The first sip reveals a quick rush of oats that is quickly overpowered by dark roasted malt which leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste. The mouth is creamy and slightly chalky. Straightforward and simple.

A - Dark black, only a glimmer of light comes through. Very little head but lacing holds up well

S - pretty weak, molasses and spices from the hops

T - Chocolate, coffee, toffe

M - a bit watery for a stout

O - a bit dissapointing, not as strong flavor and mouthfeel as I'd like from an outmeat stout.. Would drink another, but not something I'll seek out.
