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!

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.

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.

On tap at Rattle N Hum
Appearance: charcoal brown with fine creamy tanned top (nitro used).
Nose: mild yet noted roasted malt aromas, slightly acidic , grainy with shirt feel of clean smoke
Flavor/Palate : Mid light bodied. Straight bitter roasty character on lighter bedding. Slightly earthy , organic at finish. Late roast bitterness. Not much of oatmeal character…dry stout.

CUJO (383) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2009
RnH: tap: Pours a dark mahagony, almost unable to see through. Nose is very complex, lots of ddark fruit, raisins, earthy/ pine, bitters/ coffee. The tase also has nice depth, complex as well with similar notes as the nose. The one thing holding this beer back from being great: body... it was a 50/50 split between creamy and watery.

Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2009
Draught. Appeared like liquid dark chocolate leaning toward charcoal with a third of an inch foamy tan head. Aroma was of sweet caramel and lactose, some licorice, and fruity hops at the end. Flavor introduced a sweet oatiness, creamy caramel, light licorice and a hoppy bitter finish. Palate was of course consistently smooth. The only fault I find is that it was perhaps too balanced, I didn’t really notice any roast character and it generally tasted more of a doppelbock than a stout somehow.

tgncc (3013) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2009
Very nice aroma, roasty, coffee, cream, oats. The beverage was jet black, low in carbonation, small head. The flavor is roasty, sweet molasses, and a nice oatmeal thickness. Very creamy. Roasty finish, some malty sweetness, and a small component of hops. Nicely done.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Darker brown with a sweet aroma of chocolate, cream and coffee. Flavor is chocolate-dominant with some nice roast and coffee. Overall a very solid stout that I hope to see around more often.

Draft. Dark brown/black pour, with frothy thick head. Smell is light cream, malty, sweet. Very thick creamy mouthfeel, nice carbonation. Taste is creamy oatmeal with a bitter bite at finish. Woody depth. Very enjoyable.

On nitro, really good. A nice roast level to the aroma. Not too powerful. Taste is sweet and smooth with roasted coffee and cocoa. Creamy and tasty.
