Some Oats for a Cat

Hey all,

The Oatmeal stout went on and has replaced the Black Cat. It is so amazing to me every time I try the Oatmeal Stout. The Black Cat stout and the Oatmeal Stout are very close in malt and hop profile. But that addition of the Oatmeal to the mash mutes the roasty note, brings out more of the chocolate note and lets the flavor linger on your palette for much longer. I don’t think I will ever get over this amazing phenomenon!

Cheers,
Tyler

  1. Hey Tyler, what time are you guys going to start handing out tickets on Monday? I think it was around 9:30 last time, correct? I only ask because I'll be at work in the morning, so I'll have to casually sneak out to get a coffee or something at the right time. Thanks!

  2. I spoke with Brennen and we are handing them out starting at 8am just as we did last year. So you will have to sneak in the back door late on Mon so no one notices you come in :)

    Cheers,
    Tyler

  3. 8AM, eh? Cool. Another question... should my wife and I each get a "ticket", do we both have to go downstairs to wait in line to actually buy the bottles when called, or can she stay seated while I go down for both of us?

    Danke!
