COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.
