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.

Pours deep brown with nice foamy tan head, on cask. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is nice and rich, big notes of roasted and nuts combine with chocolate and coffee to make a nice creamy brew.

Pours an opaque chocolate brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma is an earthy peat mixed with oats and vanilla. Flavor is a bit sweeter. Mix of oats, vanilla and malts. Very bland really. Body is creamy but lacking carbonation.
