COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oatmeal Stout: Malt bonanza of roasted, and chocolate malt flavors, with a silky smooth finish. 16°

Beer Stories
In 1859, Colonel Edwin L. Drake successfully drilled the first oil well in Northwest PA. His first well became known as “Drake’s Folly” by skeptics who soon ate their words as Pennsylvania became responsible for almost half the world’s oil production. Drake’s Crude Oatmeal Stout is a silky smooth, crude oil black malt beverage, which reflects on our region’s rich oil production history.

ben4321 (3563) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 10/13/13

Aroma: Toasted and roasted malt nose, with some smoke, and a little bit of sweet malts
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a small head and very little lace
Flavor: The taste is more sweet than the aroma suggested, still plenty of roast and a little smoke
Palate: The body is medium, it feels a hint watery on the mouth, with a smokey finish
Overall Impression: Decent, but not special It gets a nice smokiness, which is probably the most interesting component of the beer. Otherwise, it’s just okay.
