Back in the day, when new faces showed up in an Iron Range tavern looking for work, locals picked them out and marked them as Pack Sackers. While we are proud of our Northwoods roots at CPB, we welcome one and all. And no beer says, “Come on in and stay awhile” more than this gentle Oatmeal Stout. Its deep, roasted caramel and chocolate notes leave a creamy mouthfeel that will have you pitching a tent in town before dark. After all, strangers are just future friends looking for a beer, right?

Taster at brewery. Pours dark with decent tan head. Lots of roasted malts, caramel and chocolate on the nose. Thin palate gives way to roasted malts and some bitter cocoa.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Canal Park Brewing Company. Looks dark brown with a fine-grained head that coats the sides like foam. Aroma is sweet roasted malts and coffee. Taste is sweet, roasty, caramel, and just a hint of coffee. Palate is unbelievably smooth, thick, and creamy. Goes down very smooth, mabe a smidge too mild. Yet, overall still a great beer.
