COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When I think of the word “Stout,” all the words and images that are conjured have one thing in common: LARGE SIZE. I believe a stout should be a celebration of all the robust flavors of its signature style. Therefore, I created the Sixpoint Otis as an accentuation of the distinguishing characteristics of stout beer: roasted flavor, full body, and hop bitterness. My favorite style of stout is Oatmeal Stout - a rare variety that earns its name from brewers adding whole flaked oats to the mash. When added in small quantities, I find the oats do not typically add much flavor to the stouts, but they have an incredible impact on the mouthfeel and body. Celebrate our Oatmeal Stout by enjoying its texture! The oats provide a silky, velvety mouthfeel. Celebrate our Oatmeal stout by enjoying its roastedness! I add extra quantities of roasted barley – the malt that lends stout beer its dark color – to provide a flavor of rich coffee. Celebrate our Oatmeal Stout by enjoying its balance! The deep caramel, toffee, and molasses flavors are complimented by even additions of hops throughout. Celebrate by ordering a pint of the Otis!

Draft at Pico. Deep roast aroma and flavor. Stale coffee, char, ash. Dry finish. Not enough body or alcohol to hold up these aggressive flavors. Feels a bit hollow.

Palme (3441) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2013
On tap @ Mudville 9. A nice creamy nitro foam on top of a eventually dark almost black beer. Smells lovely chocolaty with both chocolate and chocolate paper. A little bit of cardboard also, but it smells quite nice this. Oh my, that’s tasty! The nitro is just fantastic in this beer! It’s so creamy in the mouth that I cannot remember the last time I had a creamy beer like this. It’s loaded with Milky chocolate and fresh grassy hops. This is a really fresh one. Traces of latte, cream and lactose. Some gunpowder and licorice in the aftertaste. . A really really good one. The glass went away in no time at all. 16.06.2013

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 16.06.2013, tap @ Alewife Queens:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is roasted dark malts, coffee, chocolate, grass, licorice, rubber, cereal. Taste is dry, dark malts, coffee, bitter chocolate, hay, licorice, rubber, burnt caramel. Medium bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Nice, but I’d rather say this was a dry stout.

Also tasted this one again and then it was pretty awfule:
01.07.2013, tap @ Rattle ’n Hum:
2-4-2-1-3=1,2
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is winegum crocodiles, cardboard, dark malts, hay, grass, dried fruits. Taste is slightly sweet, dark malts, chocolate, caramel, cardboard, chlorine, cocoa, hay. Medium bitterness, dry mouthfeel. This was pretty bad!

glennmastrange (2287) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Tap. Moderate to heavy toasted and dark bread for the malt, moderate resin for the hops, light earth for the yeast, with charcoal in the background. Head is large, creamy, light tan with excellent lacing and is fully lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately bittersweet. Palate is medium, creamy with a soft carbonation and a chalky finish. Mild beginnings with a nice smooth feel turn into a nice bold beer with more hops then a usual Sweet Stout.

Aniela (2412) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2013
Draught at Rattle & Hum NYC sept 2012. Dark brown beer with a big offwhite lacy head. Malty, fruity aroma with some nice notes off brown sugar. Malty and dried dark fruits flavour. A bit thin.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Serving: Draft. It pours a dark brown color with a small, creamy nitro head. The nose is light, primarily showing roasted malt notes. The flavor has a good dose of nuttiness with light earth and lots of roasted malt. No burnt notes, but bordering on a dry stout for me. Medium to full body with low carbonation thanks to the the nitro. Not bad.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2012
A dark hazed brown stout with a thick receding lacing mocha head. In aroma, a nice hopped up chocolate malt, with floral hop, nice. In mouth, a nice nutty chocolate with herbaceous and floral hops, nice. On tap at Rattle’n’Hum, Sept 21, 2012.

Nice oatmeal stout that had a great color, head and consistency. The finsih was overly sweet for me but i guess that is to be expected, just a little too much.
