Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout

Breckenridge Brewery is located in Breckenridge, Colorado. I’ve seen a few of their beers around Minnesota, but tonight is the first time I’ve tried one.

Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout
12oz bottle, sampled from a pint glass.

Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout poured black as black can be, with no hues, tints, or hints of light allowed to pass through. A beautiful dark brown head quickly collapsed to a thick cushion of foam atop the beer.

Pleasing smells of pumpernickel bread, raisins, molasses, and milk chocolate waft readily from this beer. Nothing seems to be hidden or subtle here.

The flavor is a full-bodied oatmeal stout blast. The beer is creamy, with black malt bitterness, coffee, burnt toast, a hint of chocolate, and a very light resiny hops flavor. A great burnt toast aftertaste lingers a loooong time.

This is a tasty oatmeal stout — a good one to pop in the winter when you need a little warming up!
