DC Brau Hellís Bottom


Brewed by DC Brau Brewing Company
Washington DC, Washington DC USA
Style: Stout | Ratings: 9 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 5.5%
Named after one of DCís most notorious neighborhoods, Hellís Bottom. Where in the late 1800ís there was little money, whiskey was cheap and virtually no police force. Enter Hellís Bottom Oatmeal Stout. Brewed with a healthy amount of flaked oats, roasted barley and both chocolate and black malts. Hellís Bottom starts with a heavy roast character that will definitely wake up the pallet. Followed by a small kick of bitterness contributed by Northern Brewer hops. Lastly, the flaked oats contribute a smooth, cream-like mouthfeel that must be tasted to be understood. With a medium to light body this oatmeal stout is one that drinks easy in the upcoming spring/ summer season.
