I saved the Oatmeal Stout from the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp set for last because it seemed like the best way to finish off the set. This is the darkest, biggest looking beer of the bunch and it says it’s a perfect after dinner treat. It poured a deep black with a substantial khaki head and heavy dark chocolate and roasted malts on the nose. The taste was very smooth with light carbonation for such a heavy looking brew. There were hints of chocolate, sweet roasted malt, and some oatiness with a bit of hop bitterness on the very end. This Oatmeal stout was like a toasty oatmeal dark chocolate chip cookie with the slight bitterness keeping it from becoming overly sweet. I haven’t had many stouts from Sierra Nevada, but this was a great one. With a few months in the fridge I would expect this stout to mellow and be even better. It is a perfect quaff for these cold winter days.
