This is one monster of a Brown Ale! We used an obnoxious amount of chocolate malt and roasted barley to give this beer a cast iron backbone. Our Oatmeal Brown pours a dark mahogany with aromas of dark chocolate and coffee.

BVery (9668) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle from Binny’s in Bloomingdale, IL. This is an excellent brown ale. Nice deep brown pour with a soapy head. Sweet and roasty oat and nut on the aroma - nice and rich. Nice rich nutty flavor with a hint of chocolate. Just a very well made beer. Definitely stands out big time in this style.

phaleslu (9427) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Draft at 4 Hands in a sampler tray. Pours a clear amber-brown color with a small, resilient off-white head. Aroma of toasty and chocolate malts, nuts, grains (from the oats, presumably), brown sugar, and some earthy hops. The flavor also showed those subtle earthy hops underneath a wide range of malts, toasty, sweet, and chocolaty, with faint coffee. Light-medium bodied, with a toasty mouthfeel and medium soft carbonation. Very good brown ale.
