From Moody Ales out of Port Moody comes their “Lusty Chocolate Oatmeal Stout”. The beer pours a deep opaque brown colour with a brown head. The aroma consists of chocolate, caramel, cookies, roasted malts and some mild roast. The flavour is of chocolate, caramel, cookies, dark fruit, roasted malts and some mild bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 5.8% with an IBU of 38. This one has the body more like a porter but is very tasty. I am glad that this beer has come back this year.
Commercial Description: Some say the only ingredients in a beer should be barley, hops, yeast and water. We say, the more the merrier. The Lusty Chocolate Oatmeal Stout is brewed with chocolate malt and cocoa powder, then conditioned on cocoa nibs for an intense milk chocolate flavour. Oats contribute a baked oatmeal cookie aroma. A perfect treat right before bed.
Food pairing as per brewery: Butter Pastries, Fruit-Based Desserts, Berries, Anything with Chocolate.
