Tasting Notes: Schafly Stout

Brewery: St. Louis Brewery
Style: Oatmeal Stout
ABV: 5.7%
Date Poured: October 2007

More old notes from beers I got from my summer trip through the Midwest.

Pours very dark brown with ruby highlights peeking through, thin but (persistent) khaki head. Sweet, grainy oaty smells, creamy nose.

Roasty grain in the mouth. Hint of alcohol. Astringent but in a good way and creamy. A lingering roastiness and bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.

You can't go wrong with a good oatmeal stout as far as I'm concerned and this one isn't bad at all.
