Wolaver's "Oatmeal Stout"
Wolaver's Organic / Otter Creek Brewing - Middlebury, Vermont USA
Oatmeal Stout (ABV 5.9%)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

Rating: 3.1/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a murky dark brown with some ruby highlights and an average (1-2 finger) beige creamy head that diminished almost completely, down to a light wispy film and small collar with poor spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a roasted cereal malt and a light leathery yeast with notes of milk chocolate, coffee, lactose sugar and a mild smoky nuttiness.

The taste was mildly malty sweet with a hint of chocolate and a light milky lactose feel in the beginning, and then became rather roasty with a decent coffee presence and a smoky oat finish. The flavor lasted only a short while proceeding the swallow, with a light smoky roastiness fading quickly off the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a step below medium in body with a thin watery texture and a nice soft carbonation.

Overall this was a brew that was very light tasting for a Stout both in body and flavor. That being said it I still found it to be rather tasty and quite easy to drink...
