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

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2010 mesa gathering. thanks footy! viscous pour is nearly black with mahogany edges and a tiny tan head. wet musty horse feed aroma (that’d be the oats), chocolate, heavily roasted malts and stinging alcohol. flavor is surely oaty, molasses, brown sugar, dark dried fruits and some chocolate. it leaves an ashiness on the back of my throat in the finish. super rich creamy oat texture. full bodied and cloyingly sweet. a headache in a bottle!!!8/4/6/4/16/3.8

can’t do it... it is way too sweet. 8/4/5/2/14/3.3

22 oz bottle-pours a thick black sludge, then with pouring straight in , finally a thin brown head. Aroma is dark malt-molasses, dark fruit. Taste is very sweet dark malt-molasses/licorice, dark fruit, oatmeal, some acidity (from hops). A dessert beer for sipping. Good for style. Occasional. Full body, syrupy. Thanks jwc215 for sharing.

22 oz. bottle courtesy my brother. Magnificent creamy brown head slowly builds from a blacker than black pour. Sheets of creamy lace add to the picture. Fresh roasted coffee, dark chocolate, licorice, vanilla, and some pepper combine for an intoxicationg aroma. Full body, light carbonation, smooth, rich, creamy mouthfeel, and a palate coating quality all come together perfectly. Balanced flavor with a treacle sweetness and just enough bitterness to dry out the finish without even a hint of harshness. What a phenomenal offering from a brewer that is largely unrecognized, and perhaps under appreciated.

Jet black in color, tight dark khaki head. Rousing elicits a 2-cm head that slowly regresses to the edges of the glass. Aroma is heavy cocoa, dark chocolate, and alcohol. Dark bitter malts with chocolate undertones and a slightly astringent harsh finish. May need some time to even out a bit, but still well put together.

bottle. pours jet black with a light to medium brown head that sticks around for a while and laces well. strong coffee and chocolate milkshake malts in the smell, with a hint of oatmeal cookie, complete with raisins in it. tastes like it smells with the oatmeal coming out a bit more. slightly bitter and quite sweet, but never cloying, and the sweetness just helps to bring out the flavors more. very tasty. a great silky mouthfeel with a good carbonation finishes it off. this is really good.

Bottle: Nearly black, moderate to thin spritzy beige head, dies rather quickly, leaving very little lacing.   Heaps of chocolate and roated malts on the nose.   Much stronger than most I have had.   A bit of alcohol is noticeable as well.   Big rich malt forward flavors, chocolate, black, and roasty, all come together to make this a big beer.   Very warming, the alcohol is there.   Hop profile is minor, albeit does have a good presense.   Semi-sweet, somewhat like Dark Chocolate.   This one is hot, quite hot.   Age should do this well.   Quite drinkable as is, but guessing it will be phenominal in a year or two.   Finish is a little carob like, with quite a bit of alcohol.   This one definitely needs time to settle down.   Although it is hot, it is very quaffable.   Lingering cocoa and carob, along with the alcohol.   Southern Tier continues to impress me with these 22oz bombers.   I think in tmie this beer will only get better.   As is I would say this beer has a big chocolate malt base, assertive alcohol presense, with a moderate hop bite.   Thanks goes out to Jah Noth and eaglefan538 for sending me bottles of the stuff!

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of kmweaver. Pours a clear, warm, dark brown with a reddish hue and a creamy, light brown head. Fat, vinous aroma - almost port like with some raisiny notes. Very full-bodied, this pours thick and sirupy. Loads of hard roasted malts, licorice and dried fruit. Rather subdued bitterness. Lovely indeed. 021107

Bomber as an extra from Bmartin08. Thanks man! Deep opaque black with burnt tan brown head. Aroma is deep mollases with burnt malt, sweet dark chocolate and slight alc. A warming, very dark imperial, nice alc presence, roasted malt, rich dark chocolate, very sweet, pretty intense. A very creamy, full body with minor burn. The combination of creamy full body and rich dark chocolate makes this a very satisfying and well done brew.

Much thanks to TomDecapolis for sharing this beauty... Appears a syrupy black with a small tan head that fades into a small head. Scattered lacing is left around the glass. Smell if of chocolate, fudge brownies, roasted nuts, caramel, mocha, and cream...luscious. Taste is of the same with fruity notes and a deep, rich cocoa. Mouthfeel is boozy, chocolate filled, fudgey, caramel laden, bready, sugary, full bodied, and sweet. The only thing that could possibly make this one better is some age. Other than that, it’s really tasty. A true winner that I thouroughly enjoyed and will seek out again.
