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 Oats 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 238 L

Black body with a small tan head. The aroma is vinous, rum, molasses, light roast and coffee. The flavor is quite sweet, plums, molasses, lots of dark chocolate, light citrus hops and alcohol. Full body is soft and sticky with very light carbonation and quite a bit of heat on the finish.

This beer absolutely shattered my expectations. Pour was jet black with a light tan head around the brim. Nose big on chocolate and malt. The flavor is where its at though and it was off the wall. Chocolate, caramel, some coffee, and slight hop. It went down so smooth, but its a really heavy strong beer and I couldnt drink the 22 oz bomber alone.

Bottle. Didnt realize this was the highest rated ST beer when I picked it up at Whole Foods in Wheaton, IL the other day. Chocolate malt aroma with some sweet fruit. Black body with a large, brown head. Some lace. Sweet with a high alcohol presence. Excellent hop finish. Reminds me a bit of Oak Aged Yeti. An excellent beer, although a 22 oz bomber of this stuff is a strong meal in a bottle that will leave you feeling it.

A big heavy sweet sipper that has glued my lips shut with barley sugar. This is for those who like expressive dessert beers.

Graciously shared by nolankowal. Pour is thick and black with no head. Aroma of roasted malts and some coffee and chocolate as well. Not a great aroma, but solid. Mouthfeel is superb! Very thick and extremely creamy, this stuff just coats your mouth and tongue while you enjoy the flavors. Plenty of roasted malts in the flavor, and those are backed up by some sweet vanilla and chocolate tastes as well as a hint of hops in the end. Very enjoyable brew.

Motor oil black, no head, just a bit at the end of the bottle. Aroma is leafy bittered hops with lots of burnt fumes (I guess I mean really roasty, so damn roasty its burnt). Taste is sweet burnt roastiness., prunes and all this is rounded off with leafy hops again. A medium bitterness and a slightly slick body adds a nice coating dimension. Yet overall this is rather drinkable. 22oz bomber, Rodenbach tulip glass.

Very, very dark brwon body with blackened/ruby hues, extremely oily, viscous and is visibly thick. Beige bubbles fail to form a substantial head, only a thn layer of creamy carbonation. The aroma is filled to the brim with highly roasted grains and a large oatmeal presence, bold but unobtrusive alcohol with berry esters, chocolate, prune, pan-scorched and scraped caramel, licorice, molasses and coffee notes. The nose is creamy and dotted with ethanol, moderate hoppy bitterness and plenty of desired character. The flavor is superbly roasty and larger than life. Sweetness is medium to medium-high, bitterness is mild to medium. Acidity is low and astringency mild. Vanilla and raisin additions. Finishes lightly bitter with sweet chocolate, coffee and oats lingering. The palate is exceptional, very dense and fantastically creamy, with low carbonation and is full bodied and slick. Drinkability should be higher for such a creamy palate experience; hot alcohol prevents this. This isnt world class but it is very delicious.

hopscotch (11014) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Bottle This beer rocks! Pours thick and dark with a late-arriving, creamy, orange/brown head. The robust aroma offers notes of burnt caramel, ethanol, molasses, dark chocolate, espresso and resinous hops with light blueberry and raspberry esters. Huge, bossy flavor with lots of deeply roasted malt sweetness. Tannic, singed bitterness. Essences of bittersweet, dark chocolate, blackstrap molasses, espresso and carbon. Ultra-full-bodied with the viscosity of motor oil. Chewy with soft to modest carbonation. Lengthy, bittersweet, molasses and chocolate finish. Kudos to boboski for the sample!

(Bottle) Pours an opaque black body with a thin brown head. The oily body noticeable adheres to the glassware. Aroma of roastiness, vanilla, oatmeal, lactose, and molasses. Flavor of roasted malt, oatmeal, coffee, and chocolate with a bitter finish.
