COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Roasted barley is the trademark of stout, a bittersweet separation from its cousin Porter. Our deep black stout is made with a grist containing 15% organic oatmeal to create its remarkable silky texture.

On nitro at the brewpub. Arrived at the table black with a moderate creamy off-white head that lasted until mid-glass and left patchy lace. Very pleasant aroma of roasted malt along with some chocolate. The flavor is lightly roasted malt with a bit of chocolate. Incredibly smooth and silky on the palate, and the addition of the oatmeal adds depth and body to the silky smoothness. This is simply a very, very nice stout.

On draft at the brewpub. Pours a dark maple mahogany color with a thick and creamy beige head. Aroma of light malt, light cocoa and a hint of chocolate. Taste of light malt, cocoa and chocolate. Dry taste.

Smoked barley aroma with a light coffee undertone. Tastes of dark chocolate, espresso, dried cranberry. Toasty, nutty and oat-y. Bitter toasted aftertaste. Smooth and warm in the mouth.

Nitro. Aroma and flavor both unremarkable with bland coffee. Weak body. Eh. Apparently not interesting enough to prompt me to write enough words.

LilBeerDoctor (3453) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown with a super thick and foamy tan head like a milkshake. Aroma of light sweet roasted malt. Flavor of sweet oatmeal, roasted malt, and light bitter chocolate. Smooth from the nitro. Meh, this was ok but didn’t stand out from any other oatmeal stout.

stangger (583) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2008
On tap at Selin’s Grove brewpub. Very dark, roasted malts, chocolate, thick and smooth. Probably my favorite of the bunch.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 20, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Fresh, roasty aroma between coffee, chicory and fire. Nice crispness. Pours a black-brown with mahogany fringe and rim in tan. Flavor is gentle but rich and develop. A good interplay of roast, caramels, and coffee. Oatmeal lends a nice body fix. Easily drank, but not watery. I could see cozying up with this in the winter. Clean, with nice flavors, good roast balance and a decent texture. A fine stout.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. My least favorite offering out of the 8 or 9 sampled. A good beer, but SG has some big beers and this gets lost in the bunch.

Draft at the Brewpub. Notes of chocolate in both the aroma and taste. Some roastiness as well. Pretty easy to drink. Selinsgrove knows how to brew their shit.

I liked this better than the Snake drive stout. Had more of a chocolate and oatmeal taste instead of a coffee taste. Reasonably complex. It tasted stronger than 4.8%. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated.
