Yellowstone Valley Brewing Company Black Widow Oatmeal Stout
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Yellowstone Valley Brewing Company Black Widow Oatmeal Stout. Here’s another beer I sourced while on my summer road trip. A perfect beer to review for the Halloween season (if you ask me).
Commercial description: “The Biter is a smooth malty oatmeal stout balanced by flavors of roasted barley with chocolate malt. Gentle bittering but generous aroma is given by the popular English hop, East Kent Golding. This gentle stout will be attractive to anyone who likes a full-flavored beer, including hard-core connoisseurs of stout.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours pitch black with nice tan head and thick lacing.
Aroma: Roasted and chocolate malts, coffee and oatmeal.
Taste: Dark roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and a slight oatmeal flavor.
Overall: Creamy and well balanced, Yellowstone Valley Brewing Company Black Widow Oatmeal Stout is tasty. At 5.9% ABVI found this to be quite drinkable and enjoyable. I’d certainly drink this one again.
