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!

Draft @ Stanton Public, NYC. Poured in a pint glass, this beer has a dark, cloudy dark brown body with thick, off-white lacing that lasts throughout the entire pint. This is a perfectly smooth, milky stout that provides mostly roasted hop, malt and oat flavor with hints of vanilla and brown sugar. Very flavor, but not too heavy; this is one of the better beers I’ve had in a while.

On tap at Archive Beer Boutique 071114. This beer fits the bill in all departments. Looks good, tastes even better. Blacker than the depths of outer space and very smooth and silky in the mouth.not a lot of bitterness happening for a stout. Well balanced.

Poured dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, fresh brewed coffee, and some hops. Has a bit of a sour milk flavor. Slick on the tongue. Easy to drink for such a flavorful stout.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2007 Rerate, draft at blind tiger - the had this beer on nitro there - it was much better. Much deeper and more aromatic. Makes all the difference, much creamier also. Draft. Black pour with a creamy white head. Aroma is very toasty, light hops, roasted malts, light coffee. Nice flavor - buttered popcorn, coffee, smoke, toasted nuts. Slightly oily on the plate but still well carbonated. A subtle stout.

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.

Had this one at iron abbey beer dinner, I am a huge fan of stouts, and this one is pretty awesome. Coffee, chocolate, with some sweetness.

glennmastrange (2324) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Tap. Moderate to heavy toasted and dark bread for the malt, moderate resin for the hops, light earth for the yeast, with charcoal in the background. Head is large, creamy, light tan with excellent lacing and is fully lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately bittersweet. Palate is medium, creamy with a soft carbonation and a chalky finish. Mild beginnings with a nice smooth feel turn into a nice bold beer with more hops then a usual Sweet Stout.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2005
On tap at David Copperfield’s, 74th Street and York Avenue, NYC. Black hued oatmeal stout having a long lasting tan creamy head with good lacing. Roasted malt aroma. Medium bodied that starts with smooth slightly sweet malt with expresso and chocolate flavors. Finishes dry with lingering bitterness. A restrained and firm stout. Good balance of malt and hops. A very good mild stout.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2009
Draft at Craft Ale. Pours deep blackish with 3-finger of creamy off-khaki head. Nose is roasty dark malt, chocoff, dark fruit. Tastes very smooth, with the dark choc, molasses, and dark malt mixing wonderfulyl to give a very smooth, well rounded, well balanced flavor with an excellent richness, smoothness, and palate heft. I could drink this one all night.
