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!

BeerandBlues2 (10838) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Tap. Pours black with brown highlights, a medium-large creamy tan head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is leather, dark coffee and chocolate malt, spicy and earthy hops with dark fruit notes. Flavor is dark fruit, lightly sour and bitter dark malt, bitter hops, leather yeast and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation, low warmth.

GT2 (9410) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Tap at Rattle N Hum. A long pour yields a Guinness type clone with massive carbonation, reverse cascade, with a forthy cream head remaining. Rings of thick, sheety nitro looking lace. Looks like it is on nitro but I could be wrong. Deep coffee SRM looking black. Tart berries in the nose. Taste up front is sweet sugar and lactose sugar moving to toast, bitter chocolate, earth, silky oats, tart berries. Tangy sourness in back end similar to Guinness. Feels like a slightly heavier Guinness clone/Irish dry stout more so than a sweet stout. Mouthfeel is thinner and sessionable. Decent.

craftycarl21 (2300) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 16, 2011
On tap at Churchkey. Black pour with a creamy head. Nose and flavor both hold excellent lactic cream, roasted bitterness, sweet chocolate, and a surprising amount of evergreen hop bitterness. Nice stuff.

BeerViking (3264) - 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 (668) - 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.

stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2011
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."
