COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“brewed for the harvest” 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 Oat’s 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 • 238º L

22 oz bottle for 10 bucks. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is a little fruity, mostly oats and chocolate. Taste is oats up front with a lasting chocolate flavor on the end. Reminds me of taking a bite out of a chocolate bar. Really nice. Body is medium, lighter than I was expecting. Texture is creamy. This one is a knock out of the park. There is no alcohol in the taste to speak, and it is very smooth and easy to drink. DOB says 8/16/12 so the flavor might be a little different due to age.

Definitely has a strong aroma and taste of oats. There is a mild alcohol taste but it’s not overwhelming.

I love oatmeal stouts and was excited for this beer. Pour appears disappointingly thin bodied but I certainly approve of the impenetrable black color and brown creamy head that is quick to dissipate. Smells like raisins and alcohol, reminds me of the crème brule stout minus the sugary flavors. My afraid based off the smell that the alcohol wont be well hidden it is 10.8%. Not so bad, does taste mostly like raisins with a bitter caramel malt. Alcohol taste is moderate, carbonation is kind of heavy, some complexity. A little to strong and sweet for my taste getting through the 22 will be a project

Dark, thick pour from a bomber bottle with about an inch and a half of tan head. Mainly oats, as the name suggests, on the nose. As it warms it loses bitterness and develops bold vanilla middle and raisin finish. Can taste a little alcohol on the finish. Solid, solid oat stout and my first oatmeal imperial stout.

Black opaque pour from bomber bottle, tan foam that persists, although slight. Dark fruit aroma, vanilla middle. Taste of raisin, vanilla, oats at the end. Bitterness disappears as it warms.

Bottle in Craft Brixton. Opaque black almost no head. This looks oily and has a fairly high viscosity. Nose is very alcoholic, lots of dark ripe fruit, plums and prunes and its very sweet and sugary. Taste is very sweet. Getting lots of prune, ripe dark fruit, lots of sugar. I’m finding it a bit too cloying. Oily and syrupy in the mouth.
