This semi-sweet, chocolaty and grainy brew is made using a specialty grain called "Naked Oats". By removing the husk from the oat groat, the natural richness and flavor of the grain can shine through without any of the bitterness that the husk can bring along. The result is a superbly drinkable dark brew with a silky mouth feel and full, rich roast character.

Serving: Draft at the brewpub. It pours black with a slight, light tan head. The nose has strong roasted notes with a hint of burnt coffee. Nice mineral notes on the tongue with a solid roasty bitterness, dark malt, and light coffee notes. Lighter body that is very sessionable. The flavor and mouthfeel say more dry Irish stout than oatmeal.
