- My Rating: [C+], I gave it a (3.2 of 5) on Ratebeer.com
Oatmeal Stout – Phillips Brewing, 5.0% ABV – 341ml., (Victoria, BC, Canada)
on the front-right label:
“A snowcase exclusive, roasted oats were added to the mash of this full-bodied stout and add smooth textures with a hint of sweetness. With rich roasted notes, slight coffee and hints of chocolate, this beer is the perfect partner for your next fireside session.”
- Style: Oatmeal Stout
- Taste: Sweet roasted barley malt mild cola background acidity
- Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
- Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: not particularly special
Visual: Pours pitch black with a small 1mm dissipating head, ringed retention, lots of singular tight streams around the perimeter.
Nose: burnt roasted malts, cola background (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: fizzy/tingly-slick, AIRY
Mid-palate: (lvl-6)-sweetness, background underlying acidity, (MAIN) roasted barley malt, cola,
Finish: more roasted barley malt subtle bitter-sweet, malty malty malty.
Summary: Drinks great at 11°C. Nothing too special here, lots of roasted malt, medium length and body, wished for more complexity.
