Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Oatmeal Stout ....

Tonight I will have a Beer Camp #45 2012 Oatmeal Stout from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company.  The twelve ounce bottle shows 9% ABV.

This beer poured with a thin, very dark brown head.  Beer color is a blackish brown.  No light shows through the glass when held up to the light.  Although nothing comes across really strong, the aroma has some cocoa, roasted malt, brown sugar; also booziness from the higher alcohol.  Maybe a little dark fruit.  Medium to full bodied.  There is cocoa, roasted malt, caramel, dark fruit, sweetness and higher alcohol in the taste.  Leaves a little cocoa and sour/bitter note on the tongue.  A heavy, warming, tasty beer.
