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!
