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

brystmar (1306) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Black liquid drools from the bottle with tan head. Rich, roasty aroma. Creamy oatmeal body + roasted malt base + under-attenuated sweetness. Works, though; I like this stuff.

slowrunner77 (6545) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 2, 2014
"this batch at 11%. pours black with practically zero head. thick stuff. super smooth, and though it’s heavy, no hint of being quite so strong. aroma and flavor of molasses, a touch of hops, cocoa. chocolate & a touch of ripe fruit in there as well. a "no frills" stout that happens to be pretty darn great."

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 8, 2014
From old notes, tasted with Curtis and some friends in Nashville, probably some time near the summer of 2012, from a 650mL bomber bottle. Pours dark cola brown with an average brown head that leaves an average collar. The nose is lightly smoked, milk chocolate sweetness, dark chocolate roast, tons of malt and molasses. The flavor is the same super sweet, all about the different layers of chocolate malt, not terribly complex, but not terrible either. The body is full and creamy with just under average carbonation and a long malty sweet chocolate finish.

Foffern (1383) - Bodø, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle at home. Three years old. Has a deep brown to black colour and a small light brown head that fades fast. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, licorice, nice roast, oak and dark berries. Nice flavour with more roasted tones, ash, pipe tobacco and leather. Has a soft and rich mouth feel, and a light to medium bitterness. A round, balanced and tasteful imperial stout.

Drought. Inky black with small foamy brown head, sour cherry aroma, tastes like roasted malt and cherries, low carbonation, bit of a vanilla flavor, longish finish with alcohol aftertaste on palate.
