Howe Sound Diamond Head Oatmeal Stout

howe-sound-diamond-head

Diamond Head is a traditional Oatmeal Stout from the fine folks of Howe Sound Brewing in beautiful British Columbia, and I love a good Oatmeal Stout. The nose has roasted grain and caramel. The middle is smooth and silky as an Oatmeal Stout should be, and bready and toasty with hints of coffee and oatmeal. The finish is dry, as the oatmeal kicks up and the sweetness in the middle disappears. The body is light to medium and the alcohol level is 5% ABV. A really nice, classic Oatmeal Stout.

I give it a 4 out of 5.
