Walnut color. Smoky aromas and flavors of charred cashew, steel cut oats, chicory, espresso beans, and grilled Hawaiian bread with a satiny, bright, spritzy, dryish full body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length finish displaying notes of salted dark chocolate. A dense and roasty Oatmeal Stout that warms the soul.

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.
