Beer Style: Oatmeal Stout  (13C)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 6.5 US gallons

Oatmeal Stout
Beer Color


Head retention on this beer is very good and creamy. Big coconut nose as expected and has a presence all the way through the taste, but in different ways. I really thought there was going to be too much, but great. There is a bit of chocolate nose, but most of it is that first mouth and then tapers a bit. Very smooth and creamy. The Oatmeal Stout base gives it that nice oatmeal and grain base that holds it all up.
