Thanks again for the beers, guys. I decided to take the stout on my weekend trip to a higher elevation -- and was glad I did. I thought the caramel and roasted flavors were well-balanced, with one not dominating the other. Got some sweetness in the finish, which added a nice malt complexity. The "silky" mouthfeel was great. I'm curious about how much -- and what kind -- of oats you used? Nice work...

Ed,

Thanks for the compliments. I usually don't get too excited about Oatmeal stouts, and tend to think they can be overly sweet, but this one turned out pretty good. I have some ideas for tweeking, and I am always up for some advice. As for the oats, I used plain old flaked oats, about a 1 1/4 lbs.

You know, I have no experience with brewing that style, and very little with drinking it -- So I might not be much help. If I had to nit-pick, I guess a little more roasted flavor wouldn't hurt my feelings... That's just personal preference though. I do like it the way it is.

What were you thinking of changing?

Feels like a good night for an Imperial Stout...

This is nice, really smooth. Not getting any alcohol in the flavor. I like the molasses-like flavor, balanced with the roasted and chocolate flavors. Really enjoyable... thanks again

Hey -- Finally cracked open the Braggot. This is the first one I've had, so I won't have much in the way of useful feedback... I really like this, though. Usually don't like beers that are this sweet -- but this is a different animal, definitely. The Cascades go great with it. Nicely done...
