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!

Damico (2452) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Strong aroma of coffee and malts with a normal dark oil stout appearance. Stout and coffee flavors as well, but smooth - not as potent. Overall delicious on firkin at The Grey Lodge.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2009
A Sim rate (on tap at Spitzer’s Corner): Sweet vanilla aroma. Subtle enough that it’s not overwhelming with a slight bitter chocolate note. Bitter chocolate again in the flavour with a real roastiness. There’s a nice kick in the finish. It’s the epitome of a stout... the way it should be. Nice full flavour in the finish. Yum.

jredmond (5196) - Manhattan, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Sample at RnH in NyC. Pours a dark blackish brown body. The aroma is slight coffee and bread. The flavor is smooth with notes of oat, coffee, slight chocolate malts, and roast of course.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Nitro. Aroma of roasted malt, cream, light coffee. Flavor solidly roasty with a similar coffee-dessert nature, and increasingly nutty. Not too much jumping out of the glass here, but I found it to be a very pleasant and enjoyable effort.

BREWMUSKCLES (2191) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 29, 2009
slightly smokey, smooth and creamy. a bit acrid and nutty with a roasted facet to it. clean finish with spice of licorice and star anise and a hoppy component. metal aroma is not of interest and it is only moderate of body. suited well to this time of year and what one would look for with its fortifying alcohol that is well hidden. i enjoyed this one.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Nitro at Rattle N Hum. Pours a standard deep black with a tan head. Nose is butterscotch and light roast. Diacetyl comes through, though light. Taste is much the same, on the sweeter side but a pleasant dose of bitterness from the roast helps balance it out. Not too shabby.

blipp (5826) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Nitro. Pours near black with a creamy tan head. Some roasted malt in the aroma with solid caramel/molasses like sweetness. The flavor has muted roasted malt notes, coffee, and lighter notes of toffee.Pretty good. Kind of toes the line between a dry stout and a sweet stout.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2009 tap @ RnH - Very dark, foamy tan head and beautiful lacing. Chocolate and oatmeal arouma and bitter hops in the nose. Mouthfeel is semi-creamy. Overall, a delicious beer with a nice hop kick (without overdoing it). update 12/05. I had the cask version of this at the RnH. It’s more or less the same but with less carbonation and no head. It was served in a "Stone" tumbler, but I forgive them.
