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

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

DocJitsu (721) - Florida, USA - APR 10, 2014
Pours an opaque, very dark brown with a thick, rich, mocha colored head. Chocolate, spent coffee grounds, and date nose. Thick, chewy mouthfeel. Taste approximates the nose. Nice bitterness seamlessly transitions from and balances the sweetness.

If I had to, and I mean really had to like I was being strong armed and backed into a corner I could probably declare a favorite personal beer style. Though chances of that scenario playing out are slim to none thanks to the NSA having my back 365. Oatmeal Stouts, they are what’s up. I said it. Look at all the highest ratings… See a trend? You can do so much with a stout that you are unable to do with any other beer style period. Oatmeal Stout+ Southern Tier= Ungodly Fruit. Brew pours an oily abyss. Light brown copper where the liquid meets the glass. Decent khaki head that dissipates rapidly. Intense chocolate and raison on the aroma. Oatmeal is present on the pallet but accompanied by toasty malts and raison. This is a thick and hearty beer, it should be respected at 10.5 percent. The velvety smooth finish and texture work wonders hiding the otherwise austere alcohol percent. Again another example of an Oatmeal Stout that does work.

650ml Flasche. Ins Glas ergießt sich ein schwarzes Bier mit geringer bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, Schokolade, Kaffee. Geschmack röstmalzig süß nach Schokolade, Kaffee, leicht alkoholisch.

Buongiorgio00 (581) - - FEB 2, 2014
Imperial stout creamosa che avvolge la bocca e la travolge con un gusto complesso e goloso, di cioccolato, malti tostati, dolcezza di melassa. Si riconosce la punta acidula dell’avena, che accompagna il palato fino al finale. Gli undici gradi sono fantasmi invisibili. Eccezionale!

Pitch black, no light through, dark tan head dissipates, some lacing
Aroma - soft roast, rich dark malts, very slight alcohol
Taste - Rich dark malts, mellow soft roast, chocolate, alcohol very well hidden, slight soy, yummy dark sweet malts, so mellow for the abv, soft bitter hops, yum yum malts
Palate - soft carb, full rich body, quite sweet but not too much. Finish very smooth, rich deep dark malts, chocolate, mellow roast, superb soft chocolate caramel malts
Overall - Fantastic impy, very smooth, booze well hidden...I’m liking it more than the Choklat

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottled 12OCT11 Black with mahogany edges and only a rim of tan foam. Licorice, molasses and dark fruits on the nose with a lower dose of sweetness in the nose than say, choklat or creme brulee. Flavor is of oats and molasses and dark malts with some nice soily character. The beer is chewy and resonant in finish with a moderate carb and has the potential to fill a belly. The 10.8% ABV doesn’t even shine whatsoever. Serving type: bottle 03-29-2012
