History

In Europe during the medieval period, oats were a common ingredient in beer. These are generally medium to full-bodied stouts that have an unreal smoothness to them from the addition of oats to the mash. The oats not only add a lot of smoothness to the mouth feel but also give a touch of sweetness that is unlike any other type of stout. Roasty flavor is predominate and hop character is subtle.

Tasting Notes

Dark black, topped with tan foam. Aromas of creamy hazelnut, with a touch of coffee. Rich cocoa fills the mouth while being silky, full, and smooth. Finishes with a touch of smoke and the carbonation lifts the richness off your tongue.

Food Pairings

Ice cream and milk chocolate. Fresh and fried oysters, fish and chips, crab and steamed clams. Cauliflower soup, carrot soup, tomato soup and clam chowder. Hearty winter greens in a kale salad.
