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.

Dark brown pour with medium sized tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, hint of chocolate, caramel and some earthiness. Taste of burnt malts, roasted coffee, unsweetened chocolate, faint caramel. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, perfectly balanced, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Very good stout.

Bottle. Rich roasted malt aroma with subtle notes of chocolate and coffee. Pours black with a thin light brown head and very little lacing. Starts with strong roasted malt flavors with light hints of chocolate. Finishes smooth with the roasted malt flavors permeating throughout the finish and leaving the palate with a light coffee flavor. Good stout.

Homer321 (2894) - Melboring, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle thanks to joenugs. poured into a snifter. Nose is sweet, decadent chocolate. slightly milky, with some dark cocoa as well. Deep brown, darker than one of the stouts I had tonight! Taste is grainy, almost wheaty up front with a slight slickness to it as well. Chocolate comes through mid palate, with a moderate bitterness. Dries out in the finish without astringency or harshness. This does not taste like a 7% beer by any means, very smooth, chocolate and oats work in harmony on this one! Thanks!

Pours dark brown....almost cola like, but very minimal head. Big roasty malt aroma with a bit of coffee. Nice creamy body. Good solid stout with appropriate roasted flavor, coffee, hint of chocolate, toffee and earthiness.

onceblind (5884) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Black pour with a lasting foamy sticky light khaki head. Lovely semisweet roasty nose with a touch of coffee and chocolaty oatmeal--and roast. The flavor is kinda dark and roasty, lightly bitter, earthy malty, semi dry, and clean creamy finishing. Good, not great.

There was no smoke with this beer and it poured a black with a thick tan head that left a good amount of lacing. The aroma is nuttiness, dark fruits, dark roasted malts, dark chocolate. The taste is creamy, dark roasted malts, minimal bitterness, dark fruits, dark chocolate. I was expecting this beer to be a little more sweet from the aroma.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin, poorly retained beige head, with slight lacing, oveer a clear brownish black (SRM 35) body.....nose is roasted malts, with coffee, chocolate notes, herbal hops, balance to the malts....taste is slightly sweet, with hints of toffee/caramel, strong roasted malts, with coffee, chocolate notes, finishing with a lingering, roasted coffee, herbal hop bitterness......mouth feel, medium body, creamy carbonation, slight alcohol warmth. This is listed as a Sweet Stout by the rating system, but the brewery calls it an Oatmeal Stout. It is minimally sweet, with strong roasted malt character, and mouth feel is very consistent with an Oatmeal Stout. It is a good Oatmeal. BJCP 8/3/14/5/7
