Craft Beer Advent Calendar – Dec 11, 2017

Apparently my days keep getting longer. Out of the house by 8:30am. Home for 1 hour from 5-6pm and not home again until 11:45pm.  And I’ve been looking forward to this beer all day long.  An oatmeal stout to cap off a great night.

I’m all over this beer like a fat kid on a cupcake.  The flavor of coffee and subtle chocolate is amazing.  If I wasn’t so eager to go to bed, I would be savoring this for the next hour.  Phillips claims this to be a “Snowcase exclusive.” I hope they bring it on after this.

Beer Advocate claims oatmeal stouts have an unreal smoothness to them because of the addition of oats to the mash.  The oats not only add a lot of smoothness to the mouth feel (I can’t help but giggle any time I hear this term) but give a touch of sweetness that is unlike any other stout.  I love the mouth feel i get when I put this beer in my mouth.

Sometimes I wake up to pug sleeping like this. He looks like a fighter after getting KOd.
