COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer turns conventional wisdom on its head with five kinds of malt and rolled oats. This oatmeal porter pours pitch black into your glass and yields a thick brown head. You’ll need a knife to cut through this one. An evolution of sorts, our Head Brewer first crafted this beer at home and then commercially in England while in brew school. And now perfection! Full bodied brew with strong chocolate and roasted malt flavor.

Bottle from the Liquor Barn in Redding, CA. I was very impressed with this brew. It’s very hit and miss with some of these smaller brewers. Full bodied, full of chocolate and roasted malt flavor. I can’t wait for my next trip to Redding so I can get another bottle.

Bomber from liquor barn. Bottle was way to carbonated for most beer styles & especially a porter. Beer was very one note in flavor with black malts dominating & not much else. Maybe I had an off bottle.

22 oz. bottle. It pours black with a nice creamy tan/brown head. Good retention. The aroma is inviting and rich with milk chocolate, coffee, caramel and cream. Pretty sweet smelling and chocolaty. The flavor is drier and a bit thinner than expected with a lot of dirty black malt character. Ash, coffee, smoke and a mildly acidic finish. Not bad, but it could’ve used a bit more caramel and cocoa in the flavor to add some richness to the palate. Decent.

Tastes a bit hoppy on the tongue, but after that it is a delicious Oatmeal Porter!
