COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A decadent Oatmeal Stout brimming with cocoa and espresso aromas. This beer features a rich, dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavor with a creamy mouth feel and wonderfully dry finish. The addition of U.S. grown fuggles hops contributes the perfect amount of bitterness to this exceptionally balanced beer.

Very dark brown. Nice earthy, roasty character with dry, toasty malts. Full body. Smooth. Quite oaty, also sweet and maybe light butterscotch. A fairly moreish beer, something I genuinely appreciate in an oatmeal stout.

brokensail (10735) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 21, 2010
A: A very nice looking black pour with a thin layer of tan foam on top. S: A strong aroma of coffee with other scents such oatmeal, roasted malt, and chocolate joining the party. T: The flavor is a bit disappointing. The coffee is once again the dominant sensation. The oatmeal is there, but surprisingly not a huge presence. There are also some hints of chocolate and roasted malt. M: The beer has a nice smooth somewhat creamy mouthfeel. The body, however, isn’t quite as full as I was expecting. D: Certainly a very drinkable beer with very little alcohol presence. I was really excited to get to try this, but a bit let down by it.

Draft. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. medium to heavy toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet roasted finish of moderate to long duration. This is a very good beer.
