Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Oatmeal Stout (#45)

sierra_nevada_beer_camp_oatmeal_stout

The description first.  This has a thick, dense head.  There are oats and chocolate, and a hint of coffee in the nose.   Next is a heavy, creamy middle with vanilla, brown sugar and alcohol, finally leading to a super smooth syrupy finish.  I’m a big fan of the mellowness of oatmeal stouts, and though this is a particularly big one (at 9% ABV) it still pulls it off nicely, though it’s nearly overpowered by the alcohol right in the middle.  This is a really nice dessert beer.

I give it a 4.4 out of 5.
