COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Huvila Stout is a pitch-black, heavy oatmeal stout. The oat gives it a silky-smooth character, balancing the dry roastiness originating from roasted barley. The aroma is strongly roasty, coffee-like and slightly spicy. The flavor is strong, smooth and full-bodied, and the aftertaste is long, roasty and warming. The recipe has been developed with help of Pekka Salminen, a beer enthusiast from Turku. Ingredients: water, light and dark caramel malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, oatmeal, Hallertau Perle hops, Irish ale top yeast. Gravity 17.5%, bitterness: 35 EBU, color: 280 EBC. Serve between 10 and 14 degrees C.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2008 Roasted oatmeal stout that keeps up the tradition of well-balanced Huvila ales. Was ( or still is ) available in a bottle and draught.

Miksu (4946) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2007
Draught at the Helsinki Beer Festival 2007. Black color with creamy head. Roasty aroma with hint of green apple, tar as well as some unusual notes of grass and reed, perhaps coming from the oats. Roasted and smoky flavor with salty licorice. Roasted and bitter finish. The grass/reed aroma and flavor takes some time to get used to.

FatPhil (9191) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 10, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2007 Cask (St. Urho’s, Helsinki) As black as your hat. Warming chocolaty and malt aroma. Very sweet in the mouth, but balanced by strong and refreshing hoppiness, and sitting on top of a huge but mellow malty base.

oh6gdx (20272) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2007
Bottled. Black colour, brown mediumsized foamy head. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate with a hints of some sweeter hops and slight salted licorace. Flavour is chocolate, salted licorace, roasted malts and some slight hops. I liked it otherwise, but the big sweetness in it bothers me.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - APR 16, 2007
(Draught@Helsinki Beer Festival 2007) Roasted malty and chocolate aroma. Black colour and small, brownish head with fair lacing. Chocolate, sweet and roasted malty aroma with a hint of licorice. Medium-bodied, dry and softly carbonated palate. A good brew but maybe a bit too sweet! 13/04/07

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2005
Black colored, little brown head. Sweetness, mild coffee and roastiness in aroma. Medium to full bodied. Strongly sweet start in flavor with medium caramel, ends with roasted and mild fruity tones. Mild alcohol and hops come up in aftertaste. Pretty sweet brew, still good stout.

mrdasilva (120) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 7, 2005
Quite small tight beige head, pitch-black color. Strong dark aroma is quite sweet with clearly notable alcohol and a touch of tobacco. Heavy, smoky flavor has lots of plum-like fruitiness and a long burnt aftertaste. A challenging quality product.

TBone (12479) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 6, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2006 Draught @Kaisla
Opaque black, small expresso head. Lemony hoppy, dish water nose, not very typical to stout. Also some lemon hops in the roasted chocolaty flavor. Not much aftertaste. Flavor is ok but this is very light stout, quality is maybe varying between kegs. (5/4/6/3/12 3.0)
Re-rated, draught @Gastropub Praha
Almost opaque black, tanned expesso head, mostly vanishing. Roasted, chocolaty aroma which turn to more glue-like aroma later when beer warms. Medium to full bodied. Ashy, chocolaty, some "glue-like" or lactose elements. Hops rise in the aftertaste. This keg was maybe not in the best shape anymore, but rating was more or less same than in the first time. (6/4/6/3/12 3.1)

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2005
(Draught@Kaisla, Helsinki) Almost black color with small, beige head. Slightly sweet, licorice aroma with roasted coffee. Sweetish-malty, very roasty flavor with licorice hints. Quite full-bodied, creamy and slightly sticky palate with low carbonation. A very nice and full-bodied, sweetish stout.
