Oatis Oatmeal Stout
Last month I reported on Ninkaski's Helles Belles. In the same Brewery Direct shipment to Total Wine in Florida, Ninkasi sent their Oatis Oatmeal Stout. A story on the label sets your expectations. 7.0% alcohol.
Chocolaty, roasty aroma. Rich, luscious, creamy texture. Beautiful roast hits first with hints of smoke and char. Chocolate sweetness along with a coffee mocha creamolato next!
In addition to the those dominating flavors, there are many interesting and intriguing nuances. Prunes and plums, vanilla, licorice. Sweet and hoppy and roast, all with great balance.
That smokey roasted flavor coats the palate in the finish and lingers long after each sip. I liked this beer!
