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!

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Served on nitro at Beer Run. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Average head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, nuts, chocolate and earthy hops. The taste is earthy notes, roasted malts, coffee, caramel and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Low carbonation.

BeerViking (2585) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2011
Draught at the Brickyard NYC and listed as 5.5%, this poured black with a coffee crema and a roasted coffee and treacle nose. Lots of roasty body, a peppery bitterness, and an apple and dry roast bitter finish. Delicious.

joebudzjoe (667) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Draft @ Stanton Public, NYC. Poured in a pint glass, this beer has a dark, cloudy dark brown body with thick, off-white lacing that lasts throughout the entire pint. This is a perfectly smooth, milky stout that provides mostly roasted hop, malt and oat flavor with hints of vanilla and brown sugar. Very flavor, but not too heavy; this is one of the better beers I’ve had in a while.

From Iron Abbey Sixpoint beer dinner. Notes only. I actually have no relevant notes, though I remember this being quite good. The only thing I have written down is "I never liked Jes. I have no idea how she got invited to the wedding."

Had this one at iron abbey beer dinner, I am a huge fan of stouts, and this one is pretty awesome. Coffee, chocolate, with some sweetness.

Otis! My main man! Multiple pints of this at Blind Tiger, NYC. Thanks to my Brazilian homeboys for serving me up a few and for toasting Sepultura. This was the best of the many beers I tried from Sixpoint this spring, a superb session stout that’s perfectly to style and filled with character. Pour was delectable, with a thick sedimental look to it, and a fat creamy head. Nose of very understated chocolate, abundant (but not over-assertive) roast malts, and some hops. Mouthfeel is really lush and inviting, not a milkshake but thick as hell, with a chalky dry finish. Tastes are more or less what’s promised in the nose, but - with the great texture of the mouthfeel and the finish, and complemented by an addition of mild smoke - even better. Great stuff.

maneliquor (3167) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2011
Draught at rattle n hum. Pours a very dark brown with some red hues as well as a small white head. Toasted aromas are prominant with grass and mint coming into play with some typical coffee and wood flavours. Pine, wood and ripe berries are on the tongue. Good beer

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2011
Draft at Rembrandt’s Pours a deep, dark chestnut brown color that appears black and completely opaque in the glass with the faintest of mahogany edges when held to light. Frothy, pillowy two finger light beige head with excellent retention, barely fading into a lasting cap that leaves streaks and splotches of soapy lacing behind. Slightly roasted dark malt aroma that is kind of bland with hints of cocoa, toast, oatmeal and coffee rinds. Medium bodied with a nice balance of roasted, dry and sweet flavors. Lots of roasted malt up front with hints of coffee bean, chocolate and a prominent oatmeal character. There’s a slight lactic cream presence mid-palate that provides nice balance and there is some more bittersweet dark chocolate toward the dry, roasted finish.
