From The Brewery

This full flavored stout imparts hints of coffee, chocolate, and roasted flavors. It is brewed with an ample supply of locally grown organic rolled oats.

ABV:5.9%

Review

Appearance: A black, dense beer – opaque with a thin, solid white to tan head. Nice lacing – not excessive.

Smell: Big roast and oat sweetness – smells heavy.

Taste: Rich and smooth – rolled oats, bakers chocolate, and mild milk sweetness, ending in a larger then expected dose of hops. It has a lingering, drying cocoa finish. A complex, rich, full flavored meal in a glass.

Mouthfeel: Creamy smooth and viscous – right on target.

Drinkability: Dangerously high – the 5.9% ABV can sneak up on you.

Notes: I have never had a bad beer in the Wolaver’s lineup. I am a big fan of roasty rich beers, and this is one of the good ones. Comes highly recommended.
