While at Ashley’s Westland, I had a chance to sample another beer from Paw Paw Brewery. It was Black River Oatmeal Stout. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this westside Michigan craft brewery. If you have not read those blog posts, please, read those posts to get to know Paw Paw Brewery. Let us get into this Oatmeal Stout.
It has a jet black color with a nice creamy small bubbles and a tan color head on this Oatmeal Stout. The aroma has roasted malty to some chocolate and coffee notes. The drinking experience entitles a smooth to creamy chocolate notes. The aftertaste has a dry coffee notes. It has a medium to heavy body. It is a sipping beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.pawpawbrewing.com):
Black River Oatmeal Stout is a very smooth slightly chocolaty stout. Pleasing mild roast, rich bitterweet chocolate and chocolate ice cream flavor. Terrific mouth feel, clean & drying in the finish. For the stout drinker this is a must try.

Closing, Paw Paw Brewery does not make a bad beer. Every beer that I have had from this brewery are awesome. This oatmeal stout is awesome. I love the chocolate notes and heaviest from the body. It might be a sipping beer but you can relax when drinking this beer. The mouthfeel is a cream chocolate notes. I really enjoyed this beer and I will be hunting this beer down in bottles in my area. I hope to see it on draft in the future again. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
