In this beer blog, we are going to sample another beer from Rogue Brewery. It is their Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout. If you have read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this west coast craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Oregon base craft brewery. Let us get into this stout.
It has a jet black color with a tan constant color head. The smell has a sweet chocolate notes. The taste has a smooth chocolate with some burn malt notes. The aftertaste has a smooth chocolate to slight toffee finish. It is a sipping beer.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, the one thing that I do not understand about this brewery. The price of their beer is pretty high. I understand that the brewery has to make money. I know supplies are not cheap. However, at the same time, why are their beers are more than the rest of the market’s beers. I have always asked this question. They make great beer and I believe they would sell more on that fact. I believe at a good price and liquid that they would be higher on beer sold by breweries. I know that they do a great job already and sell a ton of beer yearly. Just like their porter, it is a nice sipping beer. This beer is in my top five of Oatmeal stouts. I love my stouts. I love this beer. This is one of their best beers that Rogue Brewery makes. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
