Flagship Series. Just in time for the rainy weather... Season’s Greetings from Ninkasi! The Holidays are about family and Otis is the newest member of the Ninkasi family. This Oatmeal Stout is named after Otis, the black lab of our working brewer and part owner. Rich robust flavor, silky oatmeal body, and cheek-warming strength fights off the cold winter months. Whether you’re with family, friends, or alone, Oatmeal Stout is perfect for warming the heart.

Aroma is roasty, biscuit, chocolate, licorice. Jet black, little to no head. Taste is roasty, sweet, caramel, biscuit, toffee, licorice. Very sweet and bright. Hops bitterness very present in order to balance massive maltiness, to much for the style IMO. Palate is medium+ smooth, slick. Hearty. Overall a nice beer. Overkill for an oatmeal stout though, closer to an Oatmeal FES.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Bottle shared by argo0: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing light tan head. Has a lightly sweet toasty caramel malty with some drier grainy character. Starts with decent fullness and mild milk chocolate flavor with a light roastiness and some biscuity character before a drier bittersweet finish. A decent oatmeal stout, but could use a little more sweetness.

JoeinDahlem (1448) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2010
Nose of black coffee with hints of maple. Very dark brown color with chestnut highlights. Roasty-bitter espresso taste with lingering black coffee and edge of smoke in the aftertaste. Less body than I might have expected but plenty of flavor. Very nice beer.

muteprint (176) - Olympia, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2010
22 oz bomber. Strong nose of coffee and mild chocolate. Nearly black color with a brown head and a slight thickness. Oats are present in the taste and a dark chocolate rises for a long somewhat bitter finish. Good brew!

alobar (3502) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Pours dark brown-almost black. Aroma of oats, coffee, and chocolate. Flavor is sweet with oats and chocolate along with serious coffee flavors. Slightly grainy mouthfeel. Well done.

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2010
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy light brown head. The nose is sweet and roasty with lots of oatmeal cookie notes. The flavor is sweet as well with a slightly acrid roastiness, giving the finish a bit of a burnt rubber quality. The oats do alot to try to combat it with their sweetness, but it can’t quite overtake that rubber note. Medium bodied, fairly smooth and velvety, with a little cling on the back end. This could have been alot better.
