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!

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.

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.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2009
A Sim rate (on tap at Spitzer’s Corner): Sweet vanilla aroma. Subtle enough that it’s not overwhelming with a slight bitter chocolate note. Bitter chocolate again in the flavour with a real roastiness. There’s a nice kick in the finish. It’s the epitome of a stout... the way it should be. Nice full flavour in the finish. Yum.

jarow (237) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 17, 2010
On tap. Black with a creamy off-white head. Nose is fairly dry, roasted malts, chocolate. Smooth, medium-bodied. Initial sweetness followed by roasty malts and chocolate, caramel, and slight bitterness. Finishes dry and bitter with more chocolate. Decent stuff.

Arayaga2 (2222) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Brown black with a dense brown foam. Aroma is pleasantly roasty and sweet like a mocha latte. Taste is similar, with toasted marshmallow and chocolate. This example was nitro’d, and perhaps that is the problem with its watery mouthfeel and general lack of body. Still quite decent, though. $6/16oz

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2011
On tap at Churchkey. Black pour with a creamy head. Nose and flavor both hold excellent lactic cream, roasted bitterness, sweet chocolate, and a surprising amount of evergreen hop bitterness. Nice stuff.
