COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Created in honor of our local string band heroes, it features a blend as complex as their adventurous jams. Flaked oats add a slickness to the roasty aroma and big body. Yonder Stout is an adaptation of the Thunderhead. You may notice the similarities in the grain bill. This robust stout is brewed with a variety of roasted malts as well as a small percentage of flaked oats to add body and mouthfeel. With a decidedly English malt character, Yonder is balanced by moderate dose of both English and American hops.

Brouwerij (889) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 16, 2013
On tap at mountain sun. Pours a dark brown with a finger of fine tan head. Settles quickly with lots of thin lacing. Beer was poured too cold. Aroma is mild, sweet, mild roasted malt. Flavor is sweet up front, very mild fruity tones. Fades into mild roasted malt, chocolate malt, very mild roasted oats, significant hop bitterness in finish. Hops contribute bitterness more so than flavor. Moderate carbonation, medium-light body, and relatively light, oily texture. A tasty sweet stout with mild roasted malt and hop character. A pretty good stout.

Sampled at the southern Boulder restaurant. Pours deep brown and has a mild head on it. Overall a very mild brew but really nice on a winters day (sampled in March). Nicely malted but not over-flavored.

On tap at Vine Street. Black with a foamy khaki head. Delightful aroma of sweet pale malts, sweet chocolate malts, some general roastiness, and a faint touch of coffee and anise. Nice chewy (good way) mouthfeel with gentle but prickly carbonation, sweet body with a smoky finish. Smoky dark chocolate, some licorice tones, a small touch of coffee, and just the faintest touch of wood. Also has a tone of dark ripe fruits toward the end, with a bit of anise. Nice!

Was expecting to see this as oatmeal stout, but made with flaked oats makes more sense. Pours dark black with tan head, aroma had notes of dark chocolate, charred malts, some oat and sweet toffee. Taste was pretty average, some notes of chocolate and coffee, roasted malt and sweet dark toffee, finishing very smooth. Not the greatest, but oh so drinkable at 7.5%...

Strong oatmeal and vanilla aroma with hint of roasted malts. Nice creamy head with stronger chocolate and roasted malt flavor with the lingering oatmeal and vanilla flavors. Celebrate black history month in style with some delicious black beer.

draft. deep brown with burgundy edges. lightly phenolic black pepper roast and oatmeal nose. chewy and rich up front turning more acidic and rough. crisp and lively hop bitterness with chewy dark chocolate malt and moderately astringent black patent. lingering chocolate malt finish. enjoyable.

Nitro at Vine Street - these guys usually nail stouts, but this one is a big let down - huge bitterness and burnt char roast are not balanced out at all, leaving an ashy flavor on the tongue - some slickness and body from the oats - tastes like very old coffee - meh.

Draught at brewpub. Black with small thinning white head. Smell of lightly roasted coffee, notes of caramel. Easy on the tongue; not very bold.

Thick brown color. Sweet notes on the nose mixed with dark malts and alcohol. Smooth feeling. Taste is big roasted malts and coffee ground. Bitter dark finish.
