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!

egajdzis (5267) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2009
[Draft at Craft Ale House] Poured a dark brown color with a medium sized, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, some cocoa, floral hops, a bit of pine, burnt bread, and flaked oats. Taste of roast, cocoa, tobacco, a bit of lactose, vanilla bean, a bit of pine, and a mildly hoppy finish.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2009
Draft at Barcade. Pours a cascading black body with a creamy white head. Nice oats, caramel, lightly roasted coffee, hints of chocolate, caramel and toffee. Coco rounds this one out. Good brew.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Barcade. Pours a nice deep dark black body and a nitro tight head. Aroma is nutty, doughy, almost yeasty with a good full oat profile- roasty and coffee hints. Smooth moderate sweet caramel malt, full oats, creamy, nutty, and good full fresh chocolate with a light bitterness. Smooth and easy drinking. Nice.

BiddleBrau (916) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2009
On cask at Dive 96 in NYC. Pours black with little head to speak of. Aroma is roasty but very faint. Flavor is roasty and finishes clean, not overly burnt. For cask pour this felt thin; I would not have guessed this was from a cask. Eh...

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2009
On tap at the Peekskill Brewery. Pours a dark black with a small light tan head. Slight contrast of sweet malt and roast on the nose, but it’s a little shy almost. Thin to medium bodied and a roast flavor that borders on being burnt, and a little bitter. Ends with a soft light bitter with a little astringency.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Nitro at Brazen Head. Standard brown-black color with a creamy light brown head. Milky aroma. Flavor of sweet chocolate, almost a "Bosco" flavor, with a nutty graininess underneath. Very faint roasty bitterness at the end. Lotiony mouthfeel. All in all a smooth and fresh chocolately stout that made for a nice brunch.

On cask at Bellport Cold Beer and Soda. Thank you to Dave for letting me tap the cask, my first one! My virginity has now been broken. Pours very dark brown, not quite black, with a thin, bubbly, tan head. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt and a few notes of coffee as well. The flavor is char, roasted malt, and perhaps a touch of coffee. Characteristic bitter Sixpoint finish. If there are oats in here to lend smoothness, I’m not getting any of it. A solid stout nonetheless.

Nitro at Sunset Grill. Aroma is really light. Grainy, sour coffee, bitter chocolate, but only kinda. Not very balanced or unified.
