Oatmeal Stout (Free State)

This brew was a great local alternative to what Gordon Biersch offered at their Leawood location. This wasn't an overly complex stout, but it was a nice way to end the evening.

Kansas doesn't have an overabundance of breweries. Free State doesn't have a huge distribution, so I haven't had one of their brews since I left Missouri.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This black brew had a light roast aroma. It had a thick and rich creamy head.

Taste: It was a creamy brew. It left a light roast aftertaste that made me feel as if I had just had a coffee. It went well with the end of my meal. It was good to sip on over a lingering discussion.

From the Free State site:
If you ask us, there’s no better way to start your day than with a nice, hot bowl of oatmeal. Not only does it have everything you need to power through the day, but it’s also delicious and filling in a way that no other breakfast food can match.

And while we don’t recommend trying it before noon, the same can be said for our Oatmeal Stout. This rich, tasty brew goes down smoothly, and on a chilly evening in the Free State, it simply can’t be beat.
