Dark brown color. Aromas of dried figs and dates, almond butter, pedro ximénez sherry, and caramel laden nuts with an oily, crisp, off-dry medium-full body and a smooth, complex, long chocolate covered espresso beans, blackened toast with butter, chicory, and tobacco finish. A rich, smoky, and mysterious oatmeal stout that goes down like some kind of silken tar of molasses and malt.

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.
