Darkstar Oatmeal Stout – R&B Brewing (R and B Brewing)

From Vancouver BC’s R&B Brewing comes the “Darkstar Oatmeal Stout”.  The beer pours an opaque black with a brown head.  The aroma consists of roasted malts, chocolate, oatmeal and a sweet finish.  The flavour is of roasted malts, burnt coffee, chocolate, earth, smoke and a very mild bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 4.6% with an IBU of 18.  Just like my original review in 2012 I really enjoy this beer and would recommend it to anyone looking for a tasty stout.

Commercial Description:  R&B’s Dark Star Oatmeal Stout boasts a distinct roasted coffee flavour and cappuccino coloured head, and is completed with a complex chocolatey, malty bitterness. Dark Star is without a doubt our darkest beer, but its relatively high effervescence makes it surprisingly refreshing for a stout. Unquestionably our most involved malt blend, this dark and complex stout is brewed in memory of our late friend and employee, Jamie Kelly.
