COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When I think of the word “Stout,” all the words and images that are conjured have one thing in common: LARGE SIZE. I believe a stout should be a celebration of all the robust flavors of its signature style. Therefore, I created the Sixpoint Otis as an accentuation of the distinguishing characteristics of stout beer: roasted flavor, full body, and hop bitterness. My favorite style of stout is Oatmeal Stout - a rare variety that earns its name from brewers adding whole flaked oats to the mash. When added in small quantities, I find the oats do not typically add much flavor to the stouts, but they have an incredible impact on the mouthfeel and body. Celebrate our Oatmeal Stout by enjoying its texture! The oats provide a silky, velvety mouthfeel. Celebrate our Oatmeal stout by enjoying its roastedness! I add extra quantities of roasted barley – the malt that lends stout beer its dark color – to provide a flavor of rich coffee. Celebrate our Oatmeal Stout by enjoying its balance! The deep caramel, toffee, and molasses flavors are complimented by even additions of hops throughout. Celebrate by ordering a pint of the Otis!

Elwood (3347) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Serving: Draft. It pours a dark brown color with a small, creamy nitro head. The nose is light, primarily showing roasted malt notes. The flavor has a good dose of nuttiness with light earth and lots of roasted malt. No burnt notes, but bordering on a dry stout for me. Medium to full body with low carbonation thanks to the the nitro. Not bad.

Draught at Rattle & Hum NYC sept 2012. Dark brown beer with a big offwhite lacy head. Malty, fruity aroma with some nice notes off brown sugar. Malty and dried dark fruits flavour. A bit thin.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 16.06.2013, tap @ Alewife Queens:

Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is roasted dark malts, coffee, chocolate, grass, licorice, rubber, cereal. Taste is dry, dark malts, coffee, bitter chocolate, hay, licorice, rubber, burnt caramel. Medium bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Nice, but I’d rather say this was a dry stout.



Also tasted this one again and then it was pretty awfule:

01.07.2013, tap @ Rattle ’n Hum:

2-4-2-1-3=1,2

Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is winegum crocodiles, cardboard, dark malts, hay, grass, dried fruits. Taste is slightly sweet, dark malts, chocolate, caramel, cardboard, chlorine, cocoa, hay. Medium bitterness, dry mouthfeel. This was pretty bad!

Draft at Bobbiques, poured into a pint glass. I was very pleased to find this especially in Long Island, since 6point is not to common around here. Don’t think it has been made for about a year actually. Color is black with a few brown tinges, small but strong head. Aroma is slightly sweet, strong fruity and citrus hoppiness, anda bit of milk/lactose. Taste is very nice, present roastiness, with a lot of hoppiness (again fruit and citrus). Just enough "stout" in here for me to enjoy the hops. Finishes with a strong hop bitterness. Medium carbonation, felt and works well with the hop bitterness. I usually do not like hoppy stout but for the second time 6point has impressed me with a hoppy stout.

PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 6, 2007
Tap at South 4th Bar. Extremely deep brown pour, almost opaque, with a dense, creamy head. The extreme lacing coats the entire glass, throughout the entire duration of the brew, nice appearance. Looks like an Irish dry stout. Oatey, milk chocolate aroma. There’s also a subtle nuttyness and light vanilla notes in there. Flavor is nice and chocolatey. Milky and silky with an extremely creamy texture. Dark caramel malts are evident throughout the middle. The long finish shows most of it’s roastyness, and has lots of coffee-like bitterness. This beer seems more like a sweet dry stout, or alteast in that category. It’s a bit dry for the Sweet Stout category, and too sweet to be a dry stout. Nevertheless it is an extremely well crafted and creamy Stout.

I had a cask draft of this dark, tasty oatmeal stout - nicely complex and smooth.

Pwn3d (1958) - Manhattan, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Gravity cask from Gingerman in NYC with some buddies from work. Dark muddy color, zero carbonation. I took this for a bold porter than a stout. All around good.

Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Barcade. Pours a nice deep dark black body and a nitro tight head. Aroma is nutty, doughy, almost yeasty with a good full oat profile- roasty and coffee hints. Smooth moderate sweet caramel malt, full oats, creamy, nutty, and good full fresh chocolate with a light bitterness. Smooth and easy drinking. Nice.

Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2009
Draft at Barcade. Pours a cascading black body with a creamy white head. Nice oats, caramel, lightly roasted coffee, hints of chocolate, caramel and toffee. Coco rounds this one out. Good brew.
