A classic British-style stout brewed with flaked oatmeal, chocolate malt, crystal malt and roasted barley. The richness of the grain blend is balanced by the nutty/smokey character of the roasted malt, the creaminess from the oatmeal flakes and a dose of whole hops. With a light/medium body and dry finish this is our premium dark session ale.
Before the 19th century, all barley was malted over wood-fired kilns and the resulting dark roasted malt defined the browns, porters, and stouts of England. Near the end of the 19th century, brewers introduced oats for their purported restorative and nourishing characteristics.
