Nearly opaque color. Aromas of honey roasted nuts, parmesan crackers, pickled radishes and cherry tomatoes, and lavender with a supple, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a smooth, charming, medium-length cappuccino with cocoa powder, endive, caramelized dried fruits, and spiced toffee finish. A lively, savory oatmeal stout that will pair nicely.

Oatmeal stouts are brown to dark brown in color and range from 4-6% in alcohol. These beers tend to be highly flavorful with an occasional hint of sweetness. Oatmeal stouts are a twist on the sweet stout style with a portion of oats used in place of roasted malt, creating a rich velvety finish. The Yorkshire brewer, Samuel Smiths, revived this style around 1980 and it has since become a popular staple of the US craft-brewing scene. Noteworthy examples of this style include: McAuslan St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout, Samuel Smiths Oatmeal Stout, Rogue Shakespeare Stout and Anderson Valley Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout.
