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!

BiddleBrau (1001) - 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 (7386) - 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.
