American Caboose

CIMG5095

The third beer in their bottled lineup is the Caboose Oatmeal Stout. This beer was actually a big favorite at Beer Club, so I really wanted to review it on it’s own. Let’s see how this is.

Stats:
Oatmeal Stout. 7.0% ABV. 30 IBUs. Washington.

Lovely dark brown to black color. A pretty dark tan head on this one. Really looks great.

The nose is fantastic. Just a ton of chocolate coming through with a nice hint of coffee, figs, and a plum jam. But let’s not kid ourselves here, this is all about the chocolate.

Mouthfeel is superb. Great body with a little bit of carbonation.

Lots of chocolate, hints of vanilla, coffee, and plums. Just a nice amount of roast on the finish, which stays on the palate for days.

This is what a stout should taste like. It’s rich and creamy with a beautiful amount of chocolate and roast. 92 points.
