Enjoyed from a pint glass
A: Pours pitch black with one finger of creamy mocha head. Nice staying and lacing power.
S: Huge roasted and chocolate malts, earthy oats and molasses rounds it out well.
T: Bitter chocolate, molasses, and oats up front. A little bit of espresso and alcohol is hiding in there. The flavors are much more intense as it warms. Bad ass brew.
M: Rich and silky, full-bodied, you’ll barely notice the alcohol.
O: I’m loving the idea of the SN variety 12 pack that features the oatmeal stout as one of its four entries. Hopefully with a little success, the oatmeal stout will end up in six packs – it’s far too delicious to overlook and trumps the brewery’s current stout offering. No stout lover should skip this brew.
