Schlafly Oatmeal Stout

Deep brown and sporting a generous, tan, fine-bead head, Schalfly Oatmeal Stout lets very little light pass through it, but enough does to reveal some russet highlights.  It’s lacing pattern is like Zeus’ beard, generous, white and swirly.  There’s coffee, smoke, caramel and yeast in the bouquet.  The taste follows the bouquet closely with some earthiness, more coffee and bitterness in the finish.  Schlafly Oatmeal Stout is smooth and lighter than you’d expect at 5.7% ABV.

75/100 Stout
