COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Oatmeal Brown Ale is inspired by the seldom thrown Eephus – a risky and unexpected high-arcing pitch that catches the batter off-guard. This American Brown Ale finds its sweet spot with aromas of roasted malts, toasted nuts, a touch of bitterness, and a surprisingly creamy, smooth taste. Brewed on contract at Grand River Brewing prior to 2015.

Can. Subdued aroma, average carbonation. Decently hoppy brew, with slightly bitter finish. No off-flavors, but a relatively tepid offering.

fiulijn (17990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2015
Tasting at Matt’s, can
Brown color, small head. The dark malts are a bit chocolatey. Smooth and dry mouthfeel; a bit chocolatey and roasty, correct bitterness, a bit ashy in the end. Not bad.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2015 Love the strong roasted aroma and has a good full taste. The head did not last very long. Would drink again.

Frothmeister (693) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2015
473ml can. Pours a clear dark ruby with with a tan head. Cocoa, molasses, light ash, lots of toasted dark malt notes, a faint smell of squash, and light straw. Taste wise, medium bodied with molasses, light cocoa, light ash, and strong coffee that leads into dry molasses notes, more black coffee and mineral bitterness in the finish. Really comes across more like a lighter bodied stout than a traditional brown ale, but it’s solid. I’ll definitely buy it again.

On tap @ Stout TO. Pours a near opaque brown with a mocha head. Aromas are nutty and roasty. Tastes are coffee, roasty malts, and light hop bite. Full body, light bitter bite but creamy and smooth. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
