One early summer afternoon I cracked open this bottle of stout and sipped the afternoon away.  Somehow I forgot to share the post and some of my thoughts on this beer.  Overall it was exactly as I imagined an oatmeal stout should taste.  Thick, dark, creamy and noticeably sweet.  I really thought it hit all the marks.  Summer for me is more of a pale ale or ipa season, so maybe I'm not giving this a great review based on that.  I wasn't really so much in the mood for a darker beer, but I conveniently had one in the fridge.  SO, I will give this another go in the colder season and see how it goes.  If I were to pick a darker beer, I'd go with the Left Hand Milk Stout.  For now, this was a decent beer that delivered exactly what the label promised: oatmeal stout.

  1. I must admit I don't associate this sort of beer with America, is it that popular? Worth a shot hey.
