Style: Oatmeal Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.10%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Very satisfying stout with no exotic things happening here. I tend to like stouts with more this that or the other thing, but, really, I could drink this all day and not be upset. Drier than some - in a good way.

One of my favorites. Goes great with just about any food pairing. Easy to drink and not to heavy on the alcohol.

The oatmeal makes the coffee tones very mild, almost too mild. Nothing out of the ordinary for this stout, but a nice solid attempt, and a nice dry aftertaste.
