What the brewer says

“Oats bring a creami­ness and soft mouth­feel to rich, roasty malt char­ac­ter.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “This smells like my dad’s study: pipe to­bacco, vanilla, plus a lit­tle milk choco­late and hints of dark cherry and blue­berry.” Fla­vor: “Fairly chewy mouth­feel ac­cen­tu­ated by the high level of fine-bub­bled car­bon­a­tion. The roast and co­coa cut the silk­i­ness lead­ing to a roasted acid­ity and dry fin­ish. The es­ters on the nose are also on the palate but are more sub­tle.” Over­all: “Clas­sic Bri­tish oat­meal-stout char­ac­ter. A well-made beer. The acid­ity lingers a bit longer than some may care for, but over­all it is very drink­able.”
