Dark walnut color. Savory aromas of smoked pork, grilled zucchini, and sweet cereals with a velvety, crisp, spritzy, dry full body and an interesting, medium-length dark chocolate and hazelnut finish. A hop-influenced dry oatmeal stout that will serve as an excellent beef pairing.

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.
