ďbrewed for the harvestĒ This beer begins in spring when oat seeds are sown as soon as the soil can be worked. Meanwhile, select types of barley are planted with hopes that Mother Nature will be kind. Our brewers wait patiently until the legumes are mature and ready for the scythe. Upon delivery to the brewery, these ingredients are mixed together in the mash tun where they steep, creating a rich molasses-like liquid. Spicy hops are boiled with the thick brew, giving balance and complexity. Brewers yeast feasts upon the rich sugars, concluding its transformation into oatmeal stout. Pour Oat into a snifter, allow its thick tan head to slowly rise, releasing unbridled aromas. The color of Oat is as dark as a moonless night. The first sip reveals Oatís thick and nourishing taste. Like a haversack to a horse, a bottle of this stout is a meal in itself. Enjoy responsibly. 11.0% abv ē 238ļ L

22 oz bottle from West LakeView Liquors. Pours a dark brown with a dense soapy brown head. Complex nose of creamy oats, chocolate, molasses, caramel, toffee, biscuits, and dough. Mild carbonation and a creamy texture. Molasses, chocolate, toasted, roast, toffee, raisins, a little bit of dark fruits and alcohol. The alcohol is a bit too hot, but is not overbearing either. Creamy and damn tasty. A perfect beer to consume while catching up on my ratings.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - OCT 2, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2011 Bottle courtesy of Shadey. Black with rusty/burnt brown head, fades rather quick, but a quick swirl brings it back. Aroma dominated by chocolate and mollasses. Hints of dark fruit, roasted grain and pine background. Flavor starts with a huge mollasses kick, fades into creamy chocolate and huge pine resin. Finish leaves a certain bitter/burnt grain astringency flavor, huge turn off, knocks down the flavor at least 1 point, if not more. Though flavor through the front half is very similiar to 7000 IMO. Lots of warming alcohol, detracts a tad as well. Creamy smooth palate and mouthfeel. Think a little time would do some good, at least another 6 months or so. See a rerate in my future. Rerate. 07 bottle consumed, 11-19-11. Black, no head, oily. Aroma quitebig nice, chocolate, roast, licorice, big caramel/toffee character. Flavor much the same, but has some ligth cardboard/oxidation coming through in the finish. Astringency has mellowed quite a bit, as well as the hotness. Other than the oxidation itís pretty nice. still around a 3.9 for me though.

Stine (1761) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Very oily black pour, so syrupy that no head forms. Aroma of rum bread pudding with raisins, and an intimidatingly thick flourless chocolate cake; hints of grahams and honey. A resinous shade of juniper berry leading to black cherry. The sweetness heats up intensely as the body warms. Hot and viscous flavor with a slight metallic glint. Dark chocolate, molasses, irish cream, some rich meat with a gin glaze; awesome roast character that approaches that formidable edge of charred tar with care and grace, standing on the edge and never leaning too far. Dark fruit and table wine with a slow increase of citrus. Almost an off-balance strength of hoppy zest powers through at the end; pine and intense heat in the finish. Beefy smack with a powerful whiskey sweetness; slightest french roast astringency. Plenty to chew on, and lightly undercarbonated. Just a step or two away; age will do nicely.

Ernest (7376) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Bottle (fall 2007 production). Head is initially very small, fizzy, brown, fully diminishing. Body is black (opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is heavily malty (chocolate syrup, roasted grain, caramel, nuts), lightly hoppy (apricot, grapefruit, resin), with notes of alcohol and vanilla. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Full body, syrupy texture, soft carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic. Reminds me of Bells Expedition, though itís not as polished. Most notably, the mouthfeel is lacking (syrupy and low carbo = no fun...itís pretty overtly hot, too), and thereís no head to speak of to push it to a 5 score in that department (I donít ask for much with high-octane brews, but this just doesnít have anything to look at...opacity is impressive, though). Otherwise itís very nice...rich malt aroma and very good balance for the style (yes, itís very sweet, but still quite drinkable...thatís the one place the crashing alcohol kind of helps). Just a little more tuning and this will be stellar.

Metalhead (644) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2007
WOW! Pours like motor oil with a very wisp of a tan head. Aroma is mild of chocolate and hints of roast. Mouth feel is F,ing awesome. Sweet and sticky. Flavor is dark chocolate with roast and hints of oats. This is a sipper even tho you want to suck it down. One of the best stouts I have ever had.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Lots of chocolate malt smell during the pour. Flavor has intense dark chocolate and sweet roasted flavors. Backend hop flavor and bitterness come through to balance out the sweetness. Not much carbonation but there is a small dense brown head. Very smooth mouthfeel.

sloth (2817) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 29, 2007
My second bomber of this brew and it,s not much better than the first. Pour is pretty much flat. Took some vigorous swirling to gain a small but nice looking tan, brown head. It faded pretty quickly as well. An almost opaque black colored brew. Nose is lightly fruity, raisiny with some alcohol notes coming through. Full bodied, oily on the palate, creamy, fairly lifeless as it lacks in the carbonation dept.. Light roast and chocolate flavors with a hint of coffee and dark fruits. Alcohol flavor is noticeable as well. Finish is sweet, roasty with a strange astringency. I was expecting a bit more, oh well. A fair bit over-rated IMHO.
