Flavor

A taste of bready malt leads the palate and is followed by a mildly bitter taste of floral hops and coffee from the roasted malt. Its malty base mixes flavors of oats and dark chocolate.

Mouthfeel

Smooth mouthfeel is medium-full with carbonation that’s a shade over moderate. Finishes slightly dry and astringent.

Overall

Head retention doesn’t show the preferred persistence but that’s nitpicking. Its feel is right in line with expectations. The aroma is pleasant and its palate packs a lot of flavor for a sessionable brew. The Upslope Oatmeal Stout is a really nice representation of the style.

Recommended Pairings

Upslope Brewing recommends the stews, aged cheddar, and desserts as food pairings with their Upslope Oatmeal Stout.
