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!

On tap @ Rattle N Hum Black with lots of tan head that sticks around. Strong coffee/roasty malt aroma a hint of chocolate. A light sweetness on the palate that gives way fairly quickly to a bitterness that sticks around. A little bit more bitter than I expected but enjoyable nonetheless.

Pours black with a thick foamy head that quickly fades. Aroma is what I would expect from a sweet stout and includes notes of chocolate, roasted barley and malts, slight hoppiness, and possibly marshmallows or honey. Taste is a lot drier than the aroma but it is full bodied and fairly complex. I was pleasantly surprised by this sweet stout.

Brown black with a dense brown foam. Aroma is pleasantly roasty and sweet like a mocha latte. Taste is similar, with toasted marshmallow and chocolate. This example was nitro’d, and perhaps that is the problem with its watery mouthfeel and general lack of body. Still quite decent, though. $6/16oz

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2010 Location: Draft at Rattle ’N’ Hum, 7/25/10

Aroma: Mostly chocolate and coffee malts on the nose
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with some lace
Flavor: Some sweetness in the flavor, roast, slightly bitter finish
Palate: Mouthfeel is rather smooth and creamy, medium (leaning light for the style) bodied
Overall Impression: Another beer that I thought for sure I would have rated previously. I’ve seen this one many times, and had it before as well. A solid stout for sure.

On tap. Black with a creamy off-white head. Nose is fairly dry, roasted malts, chocolate. Smooth, medium-bodied. Initial sweetness followed by roasty malts and chocolate, caramel, and slight bitterness. Finishes dry and bitter with more chocolate. Decent stuff.

(Old BA rate - cask) Dark, nearly black/brown in color. Poured with no head at all (poor service, and not a reflection of the brew) Some malty sweetness, and roasted characteristics. Nothing that really stuck out as an oatmeal stout, but stout nonetheless. Definitely sweeter on the malts, and the oat flavors come through. Roasted rather than smokey. Some hop dryness toward the end. Medium MF, and closing in on a more viscous nature. Pretty drinkable for the style, and the sample was easily quaffable. Overall, this was not an overly complex take on the style. However, it was a solid take

Leighton (18735) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2010
Draft at Barcade. A good, standard stout. Dark brown pour with a strong, creamy beige hear. Very roasted malt aroma: Lots of coffee and milk chocolate. More burnt malts in the flavor, as well as some expresso and brown sugar. More cocoa and coffee, as well as hints of tobacco, in a dry, slightly bitter finish. Medium to full bodied, slightly chewy, smooth. A solid stout.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Black pour with a thick creamy head. Roasty grain, chocolate and a spicy hop aroma. Taste is thick and chocolaty with a nice hop presence. Good stuff.
