Nearly opaque bronze color. Interesting, exotic aromas and flavors of Indian spiced chocolate bar, bbq rubbed meat and fish sauce, caramelized nuts, and dark raisin toast with a glycerous, bright, petillant, off-dry medium-to-full body and a tingling, captivating, long molasses cookie, chocolate covered citrus peels, honey, and pepper finish. A very tasty, clean, and snappy oatmeal stout.

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.
