From Bomber Brewing the newest Brewery in East Vancouver comes their “Shutout Stout” the first in their limited release Bomber Series. This beer is named for the Bombers duffer hockey teams goaltender who wears number 1 and that is why the number 1 is on the bottle (not due to first in series). This oatmeal stout pours an opaque black with a brown head. The aroma consists of roasty malts, oatmeal and coffee. The flavour is of big bitterness from the coffee with pine, and hops bitterness coming up behind. This bitterness is then followed by roasted malts, oatmeal and some smoke. This beer seems to be very low on carbonation and a bit thin but is very refreshing. The alcohol content comes in at 6% with an IBU of 45. There is a ton of flavour but not what I was expecting from an oatmeal stout. Saying that it is a really nicely crafted stout.
Commercial Description: No need to bolt the doors or the bar windows – nothing’s getting past this full-bodied stout! Through thick and thin, it holds strong and steadfast, with rich roasted malts as its backbone.Warming notes of coffee and biscuit are all that may penetrate its dark facade… Some dare not speak its name aloud, but we think we know what’s coming… The shut-out.
