When I think of the word ďStout,Ē 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 Ė the malt that lends stout beer its dark color Ė 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!

Nitro at Brazen Head. Standard brown-black color with a creamy light brown head. Milky aroma. Flavor of sweet chocolate, almost a "Bosco" flavor, with a nutty graininess underneath. Very faint roasty bitterness at the end. Lotiony mouthfeel. All in all a smooth and fresh chocolately stout that made for a nice brunch.

On cask at Bellport Cold Beer and Soda. Thank you to Dave for letting me tap the cask, my first one! My virginity has now been broken. Pours very dark brown, not quite black, with a thin, bubbly, tan head. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt and a few notes of coffee as well. The flavor is char, roasted malt, and perhaps a touch of coffee. Characteristic bitter Sixpoint finish. If there are oats in here to lend smoothness, Iím not getting any of it. A solid stout nonetheless.

Nitro at Sunset Grill. Aroma is really light. Grainy, sour coffee, bitter chocolate, but only kinda. Not very balanced or unified.

Gravity cask from Gingerman in NYC with some buddies from work. Dark muddy color, zero carbonation. I took this for a bold porter than a stout. All around good.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Brown pour, appears to be dead flat, though in the mouth there is a touch of carbonation. Aroma has some oats, carbonic acid, and urine. Flavor starts out thin, dull, cask-like, with some muddy coffee in the finish. A bit of a dud, especially from guys who make such good stouts usually.

I had a cask draft of this dark, tasty oatmeal stout - nicely complex and smooth.

Pours a murky brown. Tan head. Oddest color Iíve seen in a long time for a beer. Nose is sweet malts. Flavor is kind of funky. Earthy and slightly metallic edge. Malty flavors and a pretty thick aftertaste. Feel is decent. Thick on the liquid and a good enough level of carbonation. I am going to drop the drinkability though on this one. Sure itís pretty good, but the funk edge on this one is almost too far out. Not my favorite from Sixpoint.

Tap at South 4th Bar. Extremely deep brown pour, almost opaque, with a dense, creamy head. The extreme lacing coats the entire glass, throughout the entire duration of the brew, nice appearance. Looks like an Irish dry stout. Oatey, milk chocolate aroma. Thereís also a subtle nuttyness and light vanilla notes in there. Flavor is nice and chocolatey. Milky and silky with an extremely creamy texture. Dark caramel malts are evident throughout the middle. The long finish shows most of itís roastyness, and has lots of coffee-like bitterness. This beer seems more like a sweet dry stout, or alteast in that category. Itís a bit dry for the Sweet Stout category, and too sweet to be a dry stout. Nevertheless it is an extremely well crafted and creamy Stout.

Tap at bobbique - I was excited to find this, as well - dark brown pour with light making it through the edges of the off-white head - roasted malts dominate the aroma, with hints of milky sweetness - I didnít really sense a lot of hops in the aroma, nor in the flavor - medium-bodied with a slick mouthfeel - there is bitterness there, but itís more like a coffee bitterness - a bit of cream and a semi-sweet, roasted malt finish - nothing stand-out, but a solid sweet stout.
