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.

hopscotch (9101) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2010
Bottle… Pours a cloudy, deep, dark brown with minimal head. The aroma is first and foremost chocolaty, but there is a huge nuttiness to it – pistachios and almonds – alongside splashes of cola and espresso and a dab of vanilla. Full-bodied and silky smooth with modest carbonation. Flavor-wise, sweet roasty malts are the stars of this show, although a semblance of balance is maintained by burnt malt and hop bitterness. Sweet, mocha, grassy finish.
