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

bhensonb (12171) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 18, 2009
Bottle from Archer Liquors. Pours really black with a thin dark tan head. It smells wonderful. Chocolate and treacle? Full bodied and mildly carbonated. Flavor is chocolate, light treacle, maybe a little dark fruit, and it finishes smoothly bitter in a burnt malt sense. It is super fantastic. Great mouthfeel.

Tmoney99 (11705) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Bottle from Belmont Party. Poured a black color with a moderate creamy brown head that mostly lasted and produced sticky legs and good lacing. Good roasted malt, hardy candy and woody alcohol aroma. Full body with a smooth texture. Heavy complex bittersweet stout flavor with a smooth sweet oatmeal finish of long duration. Very well balanced complex stout. This is a standout beer.

Christian (11664) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2010 Black with a tiny off-white head. A complex aroma of roses and citrus, licorice, chocolate and caramel with a hint of smoke. Sweet and really rich with dark malts, chocolate and oat crackers. A slight candy-like sweetness that could be too much, but I managed a bottle without it getting cloying.

thewolf (11387) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours utterly black with a fine, small, creamy, cappucino head. Medium duration. Aroma is sweet, lots of chocolate and the oats are rather apparent. Some stingy alcohol hits my nose with some prune-like fruitiness. Low carbonation, super creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, lightly roasted. There is lots of goodness in here. Chocolate abound, liqourice peeps through, hops add bitterness and dryness. The alcohol might be just a tad too apparent, and warms nicely. The oats is apparent in the mouthfeel as well as a fine, lingering, sweet aftertaste of oats, chocolate and coffee. This is one of ST’s nicer offerings.

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.
