COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a full bodied oat stout. Whole malted oats are used for 10% of the grain bill. Roasted barley from the United Kingdom and chocolate malt make up 10% and the rest is two row barley. The whole oats leave behind a slightly nutty flavor. The coffee and chocolate flavors come from the roast and the chocolate malts.

Decent chocolate and coffee aromas in a light bodied harmless beer. Easy to drink, more like a porter. A bit too watery and lacking a punch when compared to a great stout.
