Tis the season for stouts. Upslope’s oatmeal stout is a seasonal only offering. So if you want it, you better get it now.
The black can was a good color choice because this bad boy pours dark. It will develop a massive head if you let it, so keep that glass tilted. The smell is very subtle. If you try real hard you can definitely smell the coffee/chocolate notes in the beer. And the taste is very similar. It really only tastes like a stout after it’s gone down your throat. It honestly has the texture of a lager with only a slight sweetness underneath. I wouldn’t call it my favorite, but I also wouldn’t bash it in any way. At 5% it’s an easy drinking stout. A winter man’s “Let’s get smashed” beer.
2 1/2 out of 4 stars. Would crush a six pack.
